HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR JEWELS
To take care of your jewels in the best way, it would be advisable to avoid putting them in plastic or hard wooden boxes. Ideally you should keep your jewels in a soft fabric, such as velvet or soft cloth, which will prevent them from scratching. If you are using a drawer or a box, do not store the jewelry all together, as the contact could cause scratches, tears or difficult knots to loosen.
Do not wear jewelry as you work at home or in the garden, during sports, in the shower, while tanning or during your sauna visits. Mixed water with detergents and detergents as well as sweat ruin the surface of pearls and stones irrevocably. Knocks and bumps can create dents and scratches that are often irreparable.
Gold and silver jewel quickly lose their color if worn while swimming. Chlorine and salt water are the worst thing for jewels. The most delicate gemstones may be totally ruined if brought to the pool or to the sea. Pearl necklaces are especially sensitive as the necklace’s wire makes it hard to dry and consequently the pearls are likely to decay from within.
Even cosmetic products such as hair lacquer, talcum powder, perfumes, deodorants, sunscreen and so on can be dangerous to the maintenance of your jewelry. Protect from vapors, greases and oils – especially jewelry with pearls. For this reason, it is important to put on your jewels only after applying the various cosmetic products.
HOW TO CLEAN
Regularly cleaning jewels before storing them is a good habit. Skin, creams, scents, and the air itself, can dirty them, creating an oily dirt that removes gloss and that in the most serious cases, such as pearls, it can be corrosive. Rinse the jewels with lukewarm water and a neutral detergent will protect the jewel from outside agents and keep it shiny and clean. Attention should be paid to the climate of the place where you will keep jewels, which should not be too moist, too hot or too cold. Even direct sunlight can cause damage by oxidation.
HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR JEWELS
Diamonds, like sapphires, are very tough and, if in contact with other jewels or more delicate stones, such as emeralds, can risk scratching them. That’s why it’s good practice to keep them apart.
Keep the silver jewels apart, which, though they have received specific treatments, may oxidize. Ideally, they should be wrapped in cotton cloth or felt, which will protect them from contact with the air and will preserve their shine.
Jewelry, at least once every two years, should be brought to your trusted jeweler for general control and more thorough cleaning with ultrasonic equipment and brushes suitable for polishing or roughing gold from impurities or external agents.
