We know that your jewelry holds a special place in your heart and you always care for it. But with time, jewelry starts losing its glisten.
Silver and other metals eventually turn up tarnished. Regular wear causes gemstones to look dull and dark.
Following a daily jewelry cleaning procedure can preserve the life of your jewelry and keep it going for many years.
Here are some jewelry care tips to help you maintain the stunning appeal of your fine jewelry:
1. Avoid damaging chemicals:
Hairspray, lotion, and perfume can have adverse effects on certain types of metals and colored gems. Precious metals like gold, silver, and platinum are easily given to discoloration from these care products. It will be best to wear your jewelry after you are all dressed and set to go.
2. Store your jewelry in a clean, dry space:
Keep your jewelry in a fabric-lined case. If not a jewelry case, make sure to wrap each piece of jewelry in a soft tissue or paper before placing it in a drawer. This will prevent scratching and tangling.
3. Steer clear of fortuity:
The swimming pool isn’t an ideal place for your fine jewelry. Neither is the gym. Even when preparing a meal or doing household chores, it’s a good idea to store your jewelry in a safe place. Not only will this protect your treasured pieces from harsh chemicals, but also help you avoid losing your jewelry.
4. Use mild cleaners for regular cleaning:
The best jewelry cleaning methods involve warm water, mild dish soap, and a soft brush. These days, however, ultrasonic jewelry cleaning has become popular for jewelry lovers looking for a more meticulous approach towards jewelry cleansing.
In ultrasonic cleaning, you leave your jewelry in the careful hands of trained jewelers. But ultrasonic cleaning can sometimes shake gems loose or chip gemstones if used incorrectly. Also, organic gemstones like pearls, coral, ivory, and amber should not be cleaned ultrasonically. The same applies to gems impacted by heat and temperature changes like tanzanite, moonstone, opal, turquoise, and topaz.
5. Insurance of your jewelry:
It’s impossible to predict when an unfortunate event will strike. That’s why it’s always a better idea to insure your jewelry. If in the tragic event something happens to your precious pieces, you will have peace of mind knowing your investment is protected.
Gold is a soft metal and regular wear of jewelry causes damage to the piece unknowingly as well. There is wear and tear, scratches, dents, broken joints, links and finally a stone pops out.
That’s when you get concerned. It’s always good to get that link of the chain fixed before it’s broken before the chain is lost or the prong holding the diamond checked before it has gone loose and your diamond pops out and is lost. Just like a regular visit to a doctor is a must, one should take the jewelry to the bench jeweler on a regular basis. It is strongly recommended to get your piece of jewel examined carefully by a knowledgeable jeweler.
We offer examinations and repair services to our clients. Upon receiving the piece, our jeweler evaluates the piece. Once the jeweler has completed the assessment, we come back to you with the existing and possible issues which need attention. We give you the estimated time and cost to do the required work. Once you approve, we start the repair work. After the repair work, the items are put through the finishing process, which includes polishing, cleaning, plating and similar additional services.
You can reach us to repair and restore period and estate jewelry as well.
