Knowing how to properly care for your jewelry is an absolute must for anyone who wishes to grow (and keep) their collection long term! Learning about the care and keeping of your jewelry can also help you to avoid costly mistakes. Improper care and storage can put even the highest quality of jewelry at risk for damage!
Read below to see what you can do to prevent damage, and ensure your jewelry lasts you for years to come.
To get the most out of your purchase, it is important to avoid the “5 S’s” while wearing any jewelry!
♡ Regularly cleaning your jewelry with the polishing cloth provided is strongly recommended.
♡ Keep away from moisture, and remove before entering water of any kind. If your jewelry accidentally gets wet, don’t panic! Remove it immediately, and gently blot to dry.
♡ Remove jewelry when washing dishes, washing your hands, or using cleaning products or chemicals of any kind.
♡ Avoid use of oils, lotions, and perfumes near your jewelry. Apply cosmetics and let them dry before putting on your jewelry.
♡ Remove jewelry before exercising, using a sauna, or any other place with excessive heat. If you sweat in your jewelry, clean with a polishing cloth as soon as you can to remove any moisture or oils on the surface.
♡ Remove jewelry before sleeping. If you need, you can keep a cute jewelry box or dish near your bed to safely store while you sleep.
♡ When not in use, safely store in a jewelry box or dish... (If you have pets, make sure it has a lid)!
♡ Always store jewelry apart, never overlapping, to avoid scratching.
♡ For long trips and travel, seal jewelry in individual plastic bags, and store safely in a box. This will help to avoid scratching and oxidization/tarnish.
♡ Avoid high impact and tugging on jewelry. Fine metals like gold and silver are typically softer and more delicate than base metals, and should be handled with love and care.
To maximize your jewelry’s lifespan:
☆ Your jewelry should be the last thing you put on before you leave the house, and the first thing you remove when you get home. ☆
