Care Guide

At IAC Galleria, we want your jewellery to last a lifetime and remain as beautiful as the day you first wore it. To ensure the longevity and shine of your precious pieces, we have put together this jewellery care guide. Follow these instructions to keep your jewellery looking its best:

General Jewellery Care:

  1. How to Store

- Store each piece of jewellery in a separate compartment or pouch to prevent scratching and tangling.

- Keep different types of jewellery separated to avoid any potential damage.

- Store your jewellery in a dry and clean area, away from humidity, to prevent tarnishing and moisture damage.

  1. How to Wear

- Take off your jewellery before engaging in activities such as exercising, swimming, showering, or cleaning.

- Harsh chemicals, chlorine, and saltwater can damage the jewellery's integrity and cause discolouration or corrosion.

  1. What to Avoid

- Protect your jewellery from direct sunlight, extreme temperatures, and sudden temperature changes.

- Remove jewellery before applying lotions, perfumes, or hairsprays to prevent chemical reactions or residue buildup.

Specific Jewellery Care:


  • Clean with mild dish soap and warm water, gently scrubbing with a toothbrush.
  • Rinse, dry with a lint-free cloth, and polish with a gold polishing cloth if desired.
  • Consider professional cleaning for intricate designs or gemstones.
