Basic Jewelry Care

Daily Care and Handling

Handling Your Jewelry

  • Always handle your jewelry gently. Avoid pulling chains or rings, and clasp necklaces and bracelets when not in use.
  • Remove jewelry during strenuous activities to prevent physical damage or exposure to excessive perspiration and oils.

Exposure to Chemicals

  • Keep jewelry away from harsh chemicals like chlorine, bleach, and ammonia, which can damage metals and gemstones.
  • Apply lotions, perfumes, and hairsprays before putting on your jewelry to reduce exposure to these substances.

Cleaning Your Jewelry

Routine Cleaning

  • Clean your jewelry regularly using a soft, lint-free cloth.
  • For a deeper clean, use a mild soap and water solution. Gently scrub with a soft-bristled brush, then rinse thoroughly and dry.

Professional Cleaning

  • Visit a professional jeweler at least once a year for a thorough cleaning and inspection.

Storing Your Jewelry

Proper Storage Techniques

  • Store each piece of jewelry separately to avoid scratches.
  • Use a lined jewelry box or a soft pouch for each piece to protect it from environmental factors.

Climate Control

  • Keep your jewelry in a cool, dry place. Avoid areas with high humidity which can cause tarnishing and damage to certain gemstones.

Special Care for Different Types of Jewelry

Gold Jewelry

Gold Jewelry

  • Gold is prone to scratching. Store it separately in a soft cloth bag or lined box.
  • Avoid exposing gold jewelry to household bleach, which can cause gold to discolor and possibly disintegrate.

Diamond Jewelry

How often should I clean my jewelry?
