SUMMER jewelry care - June 18, 2019

*2 min read*

Summer is here, and we are thrilled for warm weather and fun in the sun, so here are some great tips on keeping your jewelry in tip-top shape during the summer months!

 

5 TIPS TO KEEP YOUR SUMMER GEMS SHINING

 

1.     REMOVE JEWELRY BEFORE APPLYING SUNSCREEN / LOTION

This one is simple. Take your jewelry off before applying these types of products to prevent them from looking drab and colorless. We always want you to maintain the sparkle in your beloved gems!

 

2.     TAKE YOUR JEWELRY OFF BY THE POOL / OCEAN

The first reason of why you shouldn’t wear your jewelry in the pool or ocean is quite obvious; doing so clearly increases the chances of you losing your precious items. Additionally, constant exposure to chlorine and salt water can ruin the integrity of your jewelry. It wears away at your metal and has the potential to change the color of gemstones.

 

3.     WHEN REMOVING JEWELRY, WIPE IT OFF

When you take your jewelry off, take a few seconds to wipe it off with a soft cloth, preferably a jewelry polishing cloth. This helps remove sweat, lotion, excess moisture, etc. Taking a moment to wipe off your jewelry items goes a long way. Plus, it’s ready to go the next time you want to enjoy it again.

 

4.     STORE YOUR JEWELRY IN A SAFE / DRY PLACE

Whether it’s a ziplock bag or a jewelry pouch, keeping your jewelry covered in a dry place will help prevent dirt, sand, sunscreen, and other unwanted substances from tainting or damaging your jewelry.

5.     BRING YOUR JEWELRY IN FOR CHECK-UPS

Bringing your jewelry in for periodic check-ups can help ensure that you’re not at risk of losing things that are most precious to you -- we recommend every 6 months. We will professionally check and clean your jewelry items any time for free!
