Product Care

Capablanca jewels and timepieces have gained global acclaim for their exceptional craftsmanship and design quality. To safeguard the original integrity of your pieces, we advise following proper care and maintenance measures to ensure their enduring beauty.

To preserve the original beauty of your jewelry, we suggest handling it with the utmost care. Here are specific precautions for daily activities to protect your pieces from potential damage:

  1. Strenuous Activities: Remove your jewelry during activities that involve impact, as strenuous actions may lead to irreversible damage.

  2. Handwashing and Chemical Contact: Avoid wearing jewelry when washing hands or using household chemicals to prevent corrosion, discoloration, and allergic reactions.

  3. Abrupt Temperature Changes: Remove jewelry before exposure to abrupt temperature changes, as certain gemstones may fracture.

  4. Swimming: Avoid wearing jewelry in saltwater or chlorinated pools, and be cautious of cold water causing rings to slip off.

  5. Cosmetic Application: Remove jewelry before applying lotions, perfumes, hair spray, or cosmetics to prevent residue buildup and maintain its luster.

  6. Sun Exposure: Limit sunbathing and extended exposure to direct sunlight, as it may be damaging to specific gemstones.

  7. Gardening and Sand Activities: Remove jewelry when gardening or engaging in sand-related activities to prevent abrasive contact on metal and gemstones.

  8. Sleeping: Take off jewelry while sleeping to avoid uncontrolled movements that may result in potential impact, swelling, and bodily harm.

Damage Protection: Every piece of jewelry is subjected to wear and tear, but extended wear can be minimized to reduce unnecessary damages. Consider potential sources of damage such as physical impact, chemical contact, prolonged water exposure, beauty products, sun and heat, deterioration, DIY techniques, and storage.

Precautionary Measures: Inspect your jewelry regularly, checking mechanical parts for functionality and ensuring secure gemstone settings. Store items separately in a soft pouch, the original box, or a fabric-lined case to prevent metal-to-metal and stone-to-stone contact.

Maintenance: Proactive maintenance is crucial for preserving your jewelry. Follow these best practices:

  1. Regular Home Cleaning: Conduct regular home cleaning to prevent residue buildup and maintain the jewelry's sparkle. Some items may require professional cleaning.

  2. Professional Cleaning: Schedule professional servicing at least once a year. Choose between steam cleaning (for suitable conditions) or a comprehensive assessment with recommendations for re-polishing, re-finishing, or re-furbishing.
