June 25, 2021
Jewellery is often regarded as an investment and, for many people, it usually has a sentimental value attached to it. Therefore, it is important to take care of your jewellery to prevent them from looking dull or tarnished so that they look their best for years to come.
Whether you own a crystal bracelet, engagement ring, a cherished necklace or a gold bracelet, this guide will help you care for your sparkle pieces with confidence.
Put on jewellery last when dressing and take off first when undressing.
Your jewellery can collect dirt, moisture and grime as you wear it throughout the day. If left on too long, dirt can speed up the deterioration process. So you should polish your jewellery frequently with a soft cloth to maintain its original, lustrous finish.
Remove your jewellery before washing hands, swimming (Avoid contact with water), and/or applying products (e.g. perfume, hairspray, soap, or lotion), as this could harm the metal and reduce the life of the plating, as well as cause discolouration and loss of crystal brilliance.
Avoid hard contact (i.e. knocking against objects) that can scratch or chip the crystal.
When you’ve come home from strutting around town and looking gorgeous in your best jewellery, it’s essential to store your jewellery in the original packaging or a soft pouch to avoid scratches as it looks just as beautiful the next time you put it on.
Necklaces are typically the longest pieces of jewellery in any collection, so they are most susceptible to tangling. To avoid this while in storage, lay them flat in a drawer, let them hang freely or organize them with boxes and trays
Make sure chains and necklaces are fastened when storing to avoid tangling.
