5 Easy Tips To Make Your Jewelry Last A Lifetime
Jewelry makes us feel renewed and desirable. It has the power to bring back memories and connect with our loved ones.
Trophies aren’t just little gold statues or medals, jewelry is given to recognize people’s achievements and remind them how powerful and strong they are in determination and tenacity. Here at CanaryJewels we believe jewelry has the power to change our mood, rewards and empowers.
Everyone has that one piece of jewelry that has a special place in their heart, whether its a necklace from one of our family members or a bracelet from our best-friend, that particular piece becomes so special that we might want to keep it a lifetime.
Here are some quick and easy tips to take care of your jewelry to prevent tarnishing, scratches and dullness.
1. Keep it away from wood and chemicals
Almost all chemicals are bad for your jewels, avoid leaving your jewelry on chemically treated surfaces or on wood which can easily stain or speed up the tarnishing process. Should you need to clean off your jewelry, it's recommended to wipe off your jewels with an anti-tarnish cloth immediately.
2. Avoid leaving it in sunlight
The colour of your gemstones will become dull when exposed to too much light. some may prefer to use a wall-mounted jewelry holder, while others may like to store them in jewelry boxes. Try to place your jewels away from direct sunlight for long periods of time.
3. Do NOT use toothpaste or sprays
While a good home remedy might make your shiny piece look shinier for a couple of days, it's is too abrasive and will damage your Jewelry in the long run. You would be better of wiping your jewelry using a clean cloth at the end of the day. This will make sure any lingering moisture, oils or dust is gone.
4. Don't sleep with your jewelry on
Your skin may be irritated, due to the building up of unhygienic bacteria from lack of cleaning or even worse, they might get damaged during your sleep.
5. Keep them separate and organized
Some jewelry scratches easily, especially gold. So keep them in individual soft cloth bags or the original boxes they came in.
After all, we take good care of our special Jewelry because it has the power to tell a story, express our feelings and celebrate great accomplishments like graduations, job promotions, or other achieved goals. Jewelry is a fantastic way to regularly remind us to feel pride in our abilities.
