Jewelry Care

The care of your Italian Jewelry

All the precious jewels available on COI Florence are handmade by master Italian goldsmiths, combining traditional goldsmithing techniques with the latest technological innovations. To keep the appearance of the jewels intact over time and to store them appropriately, we recommends following some general indications:

It is preferable not to wear a precious jewel when carrying out housework or when washing hands to avoid contact with soap, detergents and cleaning products that could damage their brightness. This also holds for sporting activities to avoid contact with any perspiration, salt water or that treated with chlorine which could damage the gems and metal.

The jewels are best kept away from sources of intense heat and sudden temperature changes that could spoil the gold and stones. Avoid wearing our italian jewelry when applying perfume, lacquer and make-up as the chemical composition of these elements could affect the materials.

How to store the jewels

To prevent your jewels from getting scratched, it is advisable to store them carefully, placing bracelets, necklaces, earrings and rings individually in their original case or in a suitable lined container, protecting them from humidity and sources of heat.

Cleaning tips

In order to preserve your italian jewels with the utmost care, it is advisable to clean them periodically in a professional way with suitable tools, and gently.
