All pieces of jewellery need some care and attention to be kept at its sparkling best. Remember, treat your jewellery well and you will be able to enjoy it for many years to come! If you’re not sure where to start, we’re here to help with some basic steps you can do!
Make a jewellery care kit
It’s helpful to have all your jewellery care supplies in one place so you don’t fumble about when you’re cleaning and polishing your jewellery, or when you need to mend on something. Some items you can put inside your kit may include: a gentle, jewellery-safe silver polish for sterling silver or silver-plated items; a commercial jewellery cleaner for diamonds, precious metals and other gems; a soft-bristled brush and q-tips for getting into crevices; a soft cloth for polishing and drying; glue for reattaching gems to costume jewellery; rubbing alcohol; and tweezers.
Wear your jewellery last
Your everyday beauty routine involves all kinds of products like soap, lotion, sunscreen, perfume, make up, hairspray…they’re good for making you look and feel good but these products most often contain chemicals that can affect the condition of your jewellery. So when you are getting dressed, it is best to first put on everything else first and make your jewellery your last finishing touch!
Store your pieces in a proper jewellery box
No matter how careful you are when wearing your jewellery, it can still sustain damage during storage because pieces could end up getting tangled on each other. You should particularly be careful with vulnerable materials like pearls, wood, plastic, precious metals and gemstones. The best solution for this is to have the items stored in a sorted storage like a jewellery box so they don’t touch each other.
