We are fascinated with the beauty of jewelries, and in fact we even see are selves more beautiful wearing those sparkling and eye-captivating stones in our body. Precious or semi-precious jewelries it can be, we are aware that they should be taken care of as important as we should to preserve their beauty. As I have researched, here are some of the jewelry care tips I gathered:

Do not spoil jewelry on clothing. Do not wear your jewelry before dressing, and remove it first before undressing your clothes. There are some pointed or edgy area in the jewelry that can destroy both your jewelry and clothes.

For a quick wipe before wearing jewelry, keep a sterling silver polishing cloth handy. This can help you clean and glitter your jewelry in an instant. This cloth is available in most jewelry shops and discounts stores.

Do not wear you jewelry if you wish to swim in a swimming pool and spa water, or use it around chemicals that we usually use for cleaning, they contain chemical substances that can easily oxidize jewelries. Chemicals that are included in some perfumes, hair and body sprays, and even body lotion. Can be a cause of discoloring too.

Store jewelry made from silver and other metals are prone to tarnishing in an tight air-tight or zip-lock plastic bags. This high tech method of storing your things will keep them looking like new for a long time. Do not store pearl jewelry in sealed bags!

Most jewelry can be cleaned with a soft cloth and mild detergent with water if required, rinse with clear water and dry with a soft cloth. Test an inconspicuous area for color fastness before cleaning the whole piece.

If you use a jewelry cleaning liquid, read the instructions carefully before using. Some types of beads and gems, including pearls, turquoise, opal, and other soft stones, should never be put into any cleaning solution.

Remove jewelry before going to bed. Sleeping in your jewelry can add extra stress to chains, joints, etc., and shorten the life of your things!
