Jewelry Care

 

Storing Your Jewelry

When you're not wearing your jewelry, it's important to store it properly to prevent damage and scratches. Here are some tips:

  • Store each piece of jewelry separately to avoid tangling and scratching.
  • Use a jewelry box with compartments or individual pouches to keep your pieces organized.
  • Avoid storing jewelry in direct sunlight or in areas with high humidity, as it can cause discoloration and damage.
  • Consider using anti-tarnish strips or pouches to prevent tarnishing of silver jewelry.

Cleaning Your Jewelry

Regular cleaning is essential to maintain the brilliance and sparkle of your jewelry. Here's how to clean different types of jewelry:

  • Diamonds: Clean diamonds with a soft brush using warm, soapy water. Rinse and dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.
  • Gemstones: Use a mild soap and water solution to clean gemstones. Avoid harsh chemicals that may damage the stones.
  • Gold and Platinum: Polish gold and platinum pieces with a jewelry polishing cloth to maintain their luster.
  • Coral: Wipe coral jewelry gently with a soft, damp cloth to remove dirt. Avoid exposing coral to harsh chemicals or extreme temperatures.
  • Enamel: Clean enamel jewelry with a soft, damp cloth. Avoid using abrasive materials that may scratch the surface.
  • Emeralds: Clean emerald jewelry with mild soap and warm water. Avoid ultrasonic cleaners as they can damage the stone.
  • Pearls: Wipe pearls with a soft, damp cloth after wearing to remove oils and dirt. Avoid exposing pearls to perfumes, hairsprays, and chemicals.

Additional Tips

Here are some additional tips to keep your jewelry looking its best:

  • Avoid wearing jewelry while engaging in activities that may cause damage, such as sports or household chores.
  • Remove jewelry before swimming or bathing, as exposure to chemicals and chlorine can tarnish or damage certain metals.
  • Regularly inspect your jewelry for loose stones or any signs of damage. If you notice anything, take it to a professional jeweler for repair.
