Generally speaking, any precious jewel is fragile and should be treated with the greatest care. A few simple actions and precautions will help you maintain the beauty and radiance of your jewelry.
When not being worn, each jewel should be stored separately, so that the stones and metals do not rub against or scratch each other. We recommend that you keep your Boucheron jewelry in its original case for protection.
When wearing your pieces, we recommend you avoid shocks that could affect the quality of your jewelry.
Most jewelry can be cleaned to intensify its sparkle: gently scrub it with a very soft brush dipped in soapy water, then carefully rinse it and delicately blot it dry with a soft, non-lint cloth.
If you have any doubts about the condition of your Boucheron jewelry, the Maison will be delighted to assist you in caring for it.
Care instructions for diamonds
A diamond can scratch metal, precious stones and even other diamonds. We recommend you avoid any friction between your pieces.
A diamond can be cleaned with soap or grease remover diluted in water, and rinsed in clear hot water. To dry your diamond, gently rub it with a non-lint cloth: this will restore its original radiance.
If any impurities remain, it is possible to immerse the diamond in boiling water containing a few drops of dishwashing liquid. We recommend that you have your jeweler inspect your diamond at least once every two years and anytime you have a doubt about its condition.
Care instructions for emeralds
Natural inclusions make the emerald a fragile stone that is very sensitive to shocks, so it requires special attention. Unlike the other precious stones, it may require specific care.
It is recommended to avoid exposing the stone to the sun’s rays, intense heat, and sudden changes in temperature. Avoid any contact with chemicals such as detergents.
Care instructions for pearls
Cultured pearls are living organisms that naturally revitalize in the open air. Although relatively resistant to shocks, they need special attention due to their sensitive porous surface. This means avoiding contact between pearls and chemicals, detergents or beauty products such as cosmetics and fragrances.
It is recommended to frequently clean pearls by gently wiping them with a soft cloth and by putting them away separately in their designated case.
Care instructions for gold or platinum settings
Your setting, whether gold or platinum, can be damaged by the many small shocks that occur when you wear it. We recommend to keep this in mind, and remove your jewelry when engaged in an activity that may damage or wear it down. Stones are most likely to scratch the settings: it is preferable to wear your rings in such a way that the stones and metal do not rub together, and to store your jewelry individually in separate cases.
Gold and platinum can be cleaned in soapy water.
When dull or scratched, gold and platinum jewelry can be re-polished to restore its original sparkle. A new coat of rhodium must also be applied to white gold to restore its color and shine.
Care instructions for watches
In order to maintain the beauty of your Boucheron watch, it is recommended to clean it with a soft, dry cloth.
A watch is a precise instrument of measure. It is strongly recommended that you wear your watch in normal conditions: avoid extreme changes in temperature (sauna – steam bath); minimize shocks, accelerations and violent movements; and avoid any magnetic force.
We recommend a complete revision every three to five years to guarantee the reliability of your watch and to protect it from wear and tear. We will perform a complete revision of the watch movement and functions, and replace all water-resistant and worn components.
