Care and maintenance: how to preserve the beauty of your necklaces 

Proper care and storage of necklaces is crucial for maintaining their beauty and shine for years to come. In this section we give you valuable tips on how to best care for and store your necklaces. 

Cleaning the necklaces: It’s important to clean your necklaces regularly to remove debris and impurities. All you need to clean necklaces with hard-wearing gemstones are a soft cloth along with a mild soap solution and a soft toothbrush. Caution should be exercised with delicate materials such as pearls and some gemstones. In such cases, we recommend entrusting the jewellery to Bucherer for professional and cost-effective cleaning to ensure careful treatment. 

Storage: Storing your necklaces properly will help prevent tangles and damage. Store each necklace separately in a soft cloth or in a jewellery box. Avoid direct sunlight and extreme temperature fluctuations that could damage the material. 

Regular inspections and maintenance: Check the clasps and settings of your necklaces regularly to make sure they are secure and intact. If you notice signs of wear or damage, you should have the necklace checked by a Bucherer specialist and repaired if necessary. 

Avoiding chemicals: Prevent your necklaces from coming into contact with chemicals such as perfume, hairspray or detergents as these can corrode the material and reduce its shine. 

Not only will properly caring for and storing your necklaces ensure that they stay beautiful for longer, but it will also help to preserve the value and meaning of these precious pieces. 

FAQs – Frequently asked questions about necklaces

What to consider when buying a necklace? 

When buying a necklace, you should consider which style best suits your personality and lifestyle. Consider the material, the length of the necklace, the design and how the necklace will work with your wardrobe. It is also important to look at the quality of the workmanship and the materials used. 

How do I skillfully combine necklaces with other jewellery? 

When combining necklaces with other jewellery, it is important to create a harmonious and balanced look. Avoid wearing too many eye-catching pieces at the same time. If you’re wearing a statement necklace, go with more subtle earrings and bangles. With simpler necklaces, you can be bolder with other pieces of jewellery. 

Which necklace types are suitable for sensitive skin? 

For sensitive skin, hypoallergenic materials such as platinum or high-carat gold are recommended. Avoid metals that contain nickel as they often cause skin irritation. It’s also advisable to choose necklaces that have a smooth surface and no sharp edges or rough settings. 

How do you measure the ideal necklace length? 

The ideal length of a necklace depends on your neck circumference and the look you want. Measure your neck and think about where you want the chain to sit. Necklaces come in a variety of standard lengths and each length changes the way the necklace is worn and how it looks.
