How to take care for your Jewellery
From diamonds, gold to sterling silver, all jewellery requires a little care to keep it in tip-top condition. Just follow these simple steps for jewellery that will sparkle and shine for years to come!
- Check your jewellery
It is easy to overlook that your gold rings, diamond earrings, gold chains and more require a cleanse as you may be wearing them often. It is advisable to scrutinise your jewellery every 6 to 12 months and check if they need to be given a reasonable polish.
- Take care of light and heat
Prolonged exposure to light and heat can harm your jewellery. Certain gemstones are especially vulnerable to heat, while other jewels might bleach under the sun. Excessive heat can also fracture gems or create tiny cracks.
- Stay away from chemicals
Even daily chemicals such as hairspray, perfume, cosmetics and more can discolour precious metals such as gold, silver and platinum. They can also damage other items such as pearls. Make sure to remove any jewellery before going into the swimming pool. It is also advisable to apply perfume on areas without jewellery.
- A simple polishing cloth can do wonders
A microfiber polishing cloth, similar to the one you use to clean your sunglasses, is an alternative to aggressive cleaning methods. Polishing is also a quicker option. You can quickly clean your pendants, nose pins and gold rings to get their gleam back.
- Store your jewellery well
If you store your jewellery on top of your dresser, you are asking for trouble. That is the most common place where pieces get scratched and exposed to chemicals. The best place to keep your jewellery is in a specially created box, similar to the one you received them in. Boxes or vanity cases that have individual slots for rings, necklaces, bracelets and more are also a good selection.
