Daily Care

Daily Care

To extend the life of your Birks diamond and jewelry, we recommend removing your jewelry:

  • Before you wash your hands.
  • Using lotion, hair products, fragrances and other cosmetics.
  • Household & outdoor chores (chlorine bleach will pit and discolour mountings).
  • Exercising or during any sports. 
  • Preparing meals.
  • Swimming in pools, hot tubs, hot springs and the ocean.
  • Extreme temperatures.
  • Periodically check to make sure your setting is secure and the prongs are intact. Visit a Birks store to have settings checked.

We recommend that you store your jewelry in its Birks pouch for safekeeping when not being worn.
