Cleaning and checking your jewellery

It is important to have your jewellery cleaned and checked on a regular basis. Florence suggests this be done every six months.

Periodic examination of your jewellery will ensure that any loose stones, worn claws or gold can be corrected before a loss occurs.

Drop in anytime during business hours and Florence will inspect and clean your jewellery. This is a free service.
