How to clean and care for your jewelry so that it shines like new
Jewelry is a treasure that accompanies us throughout our lives, and it's important to look after it properly so that it retains its beauty and brilliance over time. In this article, we give you some practical advice on how to clean and care for your jewelry, so that it retains its first-day brilliance and shine.
Proper storage: when you're not wearing your jewelry, it's essential to store it properly. Store them in soft, padded jewelry boxes or cases, or wrap them individually in cotton cloths to prevent scratching or tangling. Keep your jewelry away from humidity, direct sunlight and harsh chemicals that could alter its shine.
Regular cleaning is essential to keep your jewelry in perfect condition. Here are some specific cleaning methods, depending on the type of jewel:
- Gold jewelry: Clean gold jewelry by soaking it in hot water with a few drops of mild detergent. Use a soft bristle brush to gently scrub surfaces and stones. Rinse with clean water and dry with a soft cloth.
- Silver jewelry: to clean silver jewelry, you can use a special silver cloth or apply a mild paste of baking soda and water and rub gently over the jewelry. Rinse with warm water and dry with a soft cloth.
- Gold-plated jewelry: Gently wipe the jewelry with a microfiber cloth to remove dust and residues. Avoid using aggressive chemicals and abrasive liquids. Store your gold-plated jewelry in a dry place away from moisture.
Avoid contact with chemicals
Jewelry can be damaged or lose its luster if it comes into contact with harsh chemicals such as perfumes, lotions, cleaning products and bleach. Remove your jewelry before applying cosmetics or chemicals, and wait for them to be absorbed before putting them back on.
It is advisable to take your jewelry to a professional jeweler from time to time for proper care. He can check the setting of the stones, polish the surfaces and carry out any repairs needed to keep your jewelry in perfect condition.
Don't forget that your jewelry is a special object that will be with you for the rest of your life, so it's important to look after and pamper it properly. By following these cleaning and care tips, you'll be able to preserve the brilliance and beauty of your jewelry and enjoy its splendor for many years to come.
