How to take care of your jewelry

The accessory is unquestionably the centerpiece of every look, and the perfect jewelry can elevate any garment from 1 to 10.

Sure, wonderful jewelry can be expensive, but that shouldn’t stop you from shopping for jewelry once in a while.

So how do you take care of your jewelry to preserve its longevity and optimal condition?

Here are some thoughtful suggestions for jewelry care:

Store properly

The best approach to caring for your jewelry is to keep it in a safe place. Avoid leaving your jewelry on chemically treated surfaces or wood, as this will discolor it and accelerate the tarnishing process.

A good rule of thumb is to keep your jewelry in a case or box and keep each piece separate to avoid scratching against each other.

Know what you are facing

Cleaning your jewelry is strongly suggested; However, before you start cleaning, you must first determine what materials your jewelry is made of. Cleaning the wrong jewelry can lead to wear and possibly damage to the piece.

Besides the material, the intended patina and flourish are also factors to consider (dipping a piece in acid to allow it to appear like real gold).

To keep your jewelry clean, wipe it with an anti-tarnish towel at the end of the day to remove moisture, dust and oils before storing.

Finally, put it on.

Take it out first

Perfume, hair spray, and lotion all have the potential to discolor your jewelry. Also, taking off a piece of clothing can cause you to cut your necklace or lose an earring. So, follow this maintenance rule of putting jewelry on last and taking it off first.

Kkeep them out of direct sunlight

Avoid keeping your jewelry in places where it will come into direct sunlight, as the sun’s UV rays can destroy the color of your jewelry. Don’t forget to keep them away from other heat sources as well.

Rotate your pieces

Jewelry is meant to be worn, but not always. So to make your components last longer, try rotating them, regularly swapping one piece for the other.

Finally, avoid sleeping with your jewelry on; sleeping with jewelry on can be harmful not only to the room but also to you.
