Essential Tips for Caring for Your Fine Jewellery

Posted by Judi Patson on

At even design, we pride ourselves on creating fine jewellery designed to stand the test of time. However, like all precious things, a bit of care goes a long way in maintaining its beauty and lustre. In this guide, we'll share some essential tips for taking care of your fine jewellery, ensuring it continues to sparkle for years to come.

Routine Cleans at Home:

  • Soft Cloth and Warm Water: For everyday cleaning, a soft, lint-free cloth, warm water, and detergent-free soap are your best friends. Gently wipe your jewellery to remove any surface dirt or residue. You can also use an old soft toothbrush to clean under stones.
  • Professional Polishing Cloth: For more thorough cleaning, we recommend using a professional polishing cloth. These cloths are specially designed to clean and maintain the brilliance of your jewellery without scratching or damaging it.

  • Gentle/Natural Cleaners: Opt for gentle or natural cleaners over harsh chemicals. They are less likely to damage delicate gemstones or metals.

Jewellery Storage:

  • Separate Containers or Small Baggies: Store each piece of jewellery in its container or a small baggy. This practice prevents pieces from rubbing against each other, which can cause scratches. I try to tuck one of these into the bottom of the boxes for silver orders.
  • Prevent Tarnishing: For sterling silver pieces, proper storage is key to preventing tarnishing. An airtight container or a silver cloth can make a big difference.
  • Protect Gold and Gemstones: Storing your gold and gemstone jewellery correctly helps protect against scratches and maintains its shine.

Jewellery on the Go:

When travelling, jewellery care becomes even more crucial. Here are some tips:

  • Use a Jewellery Pouch or Container: A pouch or container will protect your jewellery from bumps and scratches during transit.
  • Keep it Organized: Keeping your jewellery organized and separated ensures that pieces don't get tangled or damaged.

Bonus Tip:

Keep the jewellery box you receive with your purchase. It's not just a beautiful way to present our jewellery; it's also designed to protect and store your pieces when not in use.

Conclusion:

Caring for your fine jewellery doesn't have to be complicated. With these simple tips, you can keep your precious pieces looking as stunning as the day you bought them. Remember, a little care goes a long way!
