Keep it Clean
Regularly clean your jewelry to remove dirt, oils, and residue that can dull its sparkle. Use a mild, phosphate-free detergent mixed with warm water. Gently scrub with a soft brush, then rinse thoroughly. For delicate pieces, consider using a jewelry cleaning solution specially designed for that type of jewelry.
Store each piece separately to prevent scratches and tangles. Use soft jewelry pouches, individual jewelry boxes, or a jewelry organizer with compartments. Avoid exposing your jewelry to direct sunlight, extreme heat, or humidity.
Remove your jewelry when engaging in activities that might expose it to chemicals, like swimming or cleaning. Take off your jewelry before showering, as soaps and shampoos can leave residues that tarnish metals and gemstones.
Put your jewelry on after applying cosmetics, lotions, and perfumes to avoid residue buildup. Remove jewelry before going to bed to prevent damage caused by movement during sleep.
Inspect your jewelry periodically for loose stones, damaged clasps, or any signs of wear. Have your jewelry professionally cleaned and inspected by a jeweler at least once a year.
Special Care for Gemstones
Different gemstones require different care. For example, diamonds, sapphires, and rubies are durable and can handle more cleaning, while softer stones like opals and pearls need gentler treatment.
