Over time, fine jewellery can become a treasured family heirloom if it is cared for properly. Dust, pollution and daily wear all conspire to cloud the brilliance of gemstones. The surface of gold and silver jewellery can become dulled. Timeworn prongs and clasps can result in the loss of a stone or an entire piece of jewellery.
Professional cleanings are recommended as often as once a year. We encourage you to bring your Belle Fever pieces back to us for professional servicing through our TLC program. Our staff is knowledgeable and experienced in all aspects of jewellery care, and repairing clasps and links.
Avoid exposing gold jewellery to household bleach, which will quickly
cause gold to discolor and possibly disintegrate.
All Belle Fever's pieces do not require any chemicals or polishers to maintain the shine or to clean it (we recommend not to polish, scrub or use any chemicals, as this may damage the surface and the gold) all that is required is warm water and gentle soap and that will clean residue, fingerprints and dirt. Strong perfumes should not be sprayed directly onto the pendant as this can effect the shine of the pendant.
Between professional servicing, most gold and silver jewellery can be
maintained with a non-abrasive cleaner (such as soap and warm water). Examine your jewellery regularly to make sure settings are snug and clasps and joinings are secure.
Our pieces are NOT GOLD FILLED: Gold-filled jewelry, also known as "rolled gold" or "rolled gold plate" is composed of a solid layer of gold bonded with heat and pressure to a base metal such as brass. Some high-quality gold-filled pieces have the same appearance as 14k. Gold filled contains 10k-14k.
