Treat Your Jewelry with Love
- Remove your jewelry during certain activities:
- Before performing manual tasks such as kitchen work, household cleaning, and gardening.
- Before showering or bathing. Soap can cause a film to form on the jewelry, making it appear dull.
- Before entering the pool or spa. Chlorinated water can react with metals causing color changes and structural damage.
- Before applying cosmetics, hairspray, perfumes and lotion.
- Before playing any sports to avoid jewelry damage or injury.
Keep Your Jewelry Clean and Shiny
- Clean your jewelry regularly to keep it looking new.
- Use warm water with mild soap to gently rub off any excess makeup or body oils. Dry thoroughly before wearing or storing since silver and gold can tarnish from water and leave residual water stains on your jewelry.
- Always polish your jewelry with a 100% cotton cloth or a treated polishing cloth for best results.
- Do not polish or rub oxidized sterling silver jewelry, as it will remove the oxidation. Note that all patinas are a surface treatment, and will eventually wear off.
Store Your Jewelry
- Store each piece of jewelry in an airtight environment like a plastic bag or container to maintain the luster of your jewelry and to prevent tarnish from developing.You can also place silver anti-tarnish strips in your storage container to absorb the oxidants that discolor and tarnish jewelry.
- Traveling can be tough on jewelry, so it’s wise to use a travel case to protect your favorite jewelry pieces from damage on the road.
Inspect Your Jewelry
- It is important to perform a simple inspection every two to three months to ensure that the condition of your jewelry is good. This helps prevent any small problems from becoming larger issues.
