Jewelry care : 10 golden rules for eternal shine

 

A quality jewelry piece can last a lifetime if well taken care of. Here are 10 rules to follow to ensure that your favorite pieces retain their original sheen as long as possible.

 

1 - Your sterling silver jewelry loves skin oil, which contributes to maintaining their lustre. Wear them often to preserve their shine! 

 

2 - Wait until the very end of your beauty routine to put them on. Perfumes and other cosmetic products can be harmful to the metal constitution of your jewelry.

 

3 - Take off your precious jewelry before going to bed; depending on the flow and intensity of your nighttime motions, you risk breaking them involuntarily. The same rule applies to sports.

 

4 - Thinking about spending a day by the pool? Better leave your adornments in your bag. Chlorinated water can interfere with the alloys, leading to color change or structural damages.

 

5 - Avoid wearing your favorite jewels while doing domestic chores: some soaps and cleaning products contain chemical ingredients or abrasives with which your rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces don’t get along.

 

6 - Store your jewelry separately in order to avoid creating prematured scratches.

 

7 - Store your jewelry in a jewelry box or in the box we gave you when you purchased. These options will protect against dust and ambiant air, often responsible for prematurated tarnishing.

 

8 - If you think your sparkling treasures needs a good cleanup, follow these detailed recommendations.

 

9 - A polishing cloth is always a good idea; It’s a quick fix to restore the patina of your favorite pieces.
