How To Care For Your Jewellery
If you love nothing more than getting all dressed up with a fabulous necklace, bracelet or several rings and earrings, you know just how amazing it can feel when you’re ready to go out. After all, if it’s good enough for a Duchess, why shouldn’t it be good enough for you?
However, unlike Kate’s million-pound jewellery, which has someone to care for it at all times, yours doesn’t. Instead, you have to ensure that you take care of it at all times, which includes cleaning.
Below, you’ll find the best ways to clean your jewellery to ensure it retains its shine at all times while helping you feel amazing wherever you choose to wear it.
This should be cleaned regularly to ensure that it retains its beauty. The best way to do this is to use a very soft lint cloth, or a gold polishing cloth if you have one to hand. It’s important to remember not to use solutions on gold jewellery and just clean with a cloth.
Again, don’t use any solutions on gold vermeil jewellery, instead use a soft or silver polishing cloth to help clean it. It’s worth noting that gold vermeil will fade over time.
Unlike gold jewellery, you can use solutions for silver jewellery. However, only use warm soapy water rather than harsher chemicals. Once you’ve done this, make sure it’s completely dry before storing. You can also clean silver jewellery with a soft cloth.
Again, like silver jewellery, you can clean any platinum jewellery that you own with the help of a little mild, soapy water and a soft-bristle brush to remove any marks.
These precious stones can also be cleaned with the help of a little warm soapy water. Alongside the water, you can use a soft-bristle toothbrush to ensure you get it as clean as possible. Make sure it’s entirely dry after cleaning before storing.
Keeping it safe
Aside from keeping your jewellery clean to ensure it shines all the time, your precious accessories from the likes of F. Hinds need other types of care too.
This includes storing it safely and separately to stop items getting broken. Therefore rings can be kept together, while necklaces, bracelets and earrings should be hung up, to prevent damage such as tangling, scratches and breakages.
There you have it, a quick and easy guide to keeping your jewellery sparkling and safe at all times from now on.
