Care of Amber
How to care for amber?
Amber is not a stone – it is a unique gemstone.
Do not allow amber products to fall, minimise exposure to excessively low and high temperatures. Prevent aggressive chemical compounds from contacting amber: perfumes, alcohols, household chemicals, solvents of any nature, etc.
- Avoid long-lasting exposure to the sun, store amber products in a dark place.
- Avoid mechanical impact from harder objects.
- You can remove minor dirt from the amber surface by simply rinsing the item in water and then wiping it with a soft tissue.
- To remove stubborn dirt, it is recommended to contact a jewellery workshop.
- Amber, being a natural material, in most cases becomes blurred over time and loses its original shine. This is not a defect, but a consequence of surface oxidation. Although this adds nobility, it is not for nothing that all antiques are more valuable. Any jeweler will help you to restore the original shine and beauty to the product – all you need to do is polish the amber with a suitable abrasive material.
