Jewelry Care Tips
Wearing your jewelry
Jewelry is worn by millions of people every day, but often people forget that their jewelry is meant to be decorative, not indestructible. It is how you preserve and care for these treasures that will help them last over time. Here are some basic guidelines to consider when wearing jewelry:
Remove Jewelry During Tasks
When performing manual tasks, remove your jewelry to prevent physical damage or exposure to chemicals or cleaning fluids. Some tasks that should be avoided when wearing jewelry include kitchen work, gardening, cleaning the house, moving furniture and other common tasks.
Put Jewelry On After Applying Your Makeup
Cosmetics, hairspray, perfumes and lotions can contain chemicals that can often damage or cause build-up on your jewelry or precious stones. Putting on your jewelry on after applying these items will limit exposure to jewelry and any potential damage or build-up that may result.
Don't Wear Jewelry In Swimming Pools and Spas
Chlorinated water can react with the metals found in jewelry causing color changes and sometimes even structural damage. As a result, it's a good idea to remove your jewelry before entering the pool or spa.
Contact Sports and Jewelry Don't Mix
Hard blows during sports can damage jewelry not to mention the people involved. You should always remove all of your jewelry before play begins.
Jewelry items should be stored carefully when not in use
Try to protect your jewelry when you are not wearing it, by avoiding contact with other jewelry as diamonds can scratch anything, including other diamonds.
Cleaning your jewelry
If you wear your jewelry daily or often, keeping your jewelry clean and looking good requires regular effort. Here are some basic guidelines to consider when cleaning your jewelry:
Remove Your Jewelry Before Bathing
Remove all jewelry before showering or cleaning. Soap can cause a film to build-up or be left behind that will make your jewelry and stones appear dull, cloudy or dingy. By preventing the formation of this film, you will immediately reduce how often you need to have occasions of servicing or deep cleaning.
Use Jewelry Polishing Cloths for Best Results
Polish your Gold with a jewelry polishing cloth for best results. You can also use a soft towel or cloth baby diaper, but the professional cloths are the best. Use of facial tissue or paper towels can cause scratches because of coarse fibers in these products. Every order comes with a polishing cloth.
Clean Your Jewelry With Care
Cleaning your jewelry regularly can keep it looking beautiful, but be careful. You receive fantastic eco-friendly, non-toxic jewelry polishing cloth with your purchase, but you can also purchase commercial cleaners. Be sure to NEVER use bleach as can destroy your beautiful piece of jewelry.
Only Use Warm Water to Clean Jewelry
Using warm water is best when cleaning your jewelry. Hot water can cause a reaction with the cleaning solution resulting in discoloration of the precious metal. Should this occur, contact us, and we can help by polishing the metal.
