Whether it’s fine or costume jewelry, there’s always a reason behind every piece of jewelry you buy, and you’ll want to wear it most likely forever. To ensure your prized pieces last a lifetime, it’s important to know how to take care of your jewelry. If you’ve never had nice jewelry before, caring for the nicer pieces you might acquire as you get older, like engagement rings, fancier necklaces or bracelets, or silver pieces, can be confusing.
Here are some quick and easy tips to take care of your jewelry to prevent tarnishing, scratches, and dullness.
Though you might think that you need fancy or expensive solvents and cleaners in order to clean your jewelry, that might not be the case. In fact, you might be better off not using those sorts of things and going with warm soapy water and a soft-bristled toothbrush instead.
Do not sleep wearing your jewelry. Even though you may have slept in jewelry before without any issues, sleeping in your nice pieces is a definite no-no.
Storing your jewelry is important too because it can either help or harm your pieces, depending on how you do it. Always store your jewelry in a jewelry case or box and keep each piece separated from one another. The harder stones can scratch easier than softer ones, which you don’t want to happen. You’d be upset if something scratched something else. Plus, if you have designated storage for each piece, you always know where to find it. As well, you don’t have to worry about necklace chains or bracelets breaking.
If you’re not exactly certain what kinds of materials you’re working with, it’s important to know what your jewelry is made from before you try to clean it. So that you can make sure that you do not accidentally damage your jewelry.
