5 Tips to Keep Your Jewelry Shining

December 03 2021 – Nicole Bolt

Jewelry is a serious investment so it’s important to make sure that you are properly caring for your pieces. Below are some tips to help make sure your baubles continue to shine:

  1. Never underestimate the power of Dawn. There’s a reason it’s a miracle cure-all for so many problems. Mix a few drops in warm water, let your jewels soak, then brush clean with a soft-bristle toothbrush. If you prefer the natural route, feel free to use something as mild as Mrs. Meyers or Seventh Generation and brush away.
  2. Before you clean your house, apply lotions or hair products, make sure you’re taking off your rings to avoid grime build up.
  3. Take off your jewelry before getting in pools and hot tubs. The chlorine and chemicals can be harsh on your favorite pieces.
  4. Store silver in an anti-tarnish bag when you’re not wearing it. If it does tarnish, polish lightly with the appropriate solution and a cloth.
  5. Be sure to get your jewelry checked regularly. Stones can become loose without you noticing with the naked eye, so it’s important to have a professional check up on your baubles every 6-12 months.
