With proper care, precious jewelry should last for decades and bring you years of pleasure. When a diamond is neglected, it can be damaged and eventually ruined. Find below a few ways to keep your precious jewelry safe and preserve its eternal state.
*Remove all jewelry before taking a shower or cleaning. Soap can cause a film to form on jewelry making it dull.
*There are many commercial cleaners available to clean jewelry at home. You will find a soft chamois cloth an effective and inexpensive way to keep your jewelry lustrous and shining.
*Don’t ever use toothpaste to clean jewelery.
*Be careful of chlorine. Chlorine, especially at high temperatures can permanently damage and discolor your jewelry. Do not wear gold while using chlorine bleach or while in a pool or hot tub.
*You can remove tarnish with jewelry cleaner or by using soap and water. After brushing simply rinse with lukewarm water and allow to dry.
*Always clean hooks with an alcohol swab before wearing any new earrings.
*Apply your make-up, hair spray and perfume before your jewelry - the chemicals in them will damage the finish of the metal and the stones. In other words, put the jewelry on last.
