PRODUCT CARE AND MAINTENANCE

Sterling Silver Jewelry

 

Give sterling silver jewelry a little polishing from time to time with a soft cotton cloth and a good commercial silver polish to keep it gleaming. Keeping your sterling silver items away from tarnishing elements such as paper, cloth, and rubber bands help to keep it in good condition.

 

To slow down tarnishing, clean your silver jewelry after wearing it. Oils from your skin accumulate on the surface of silver and can predispose it to oxidization. Use warm water to wash your jewelry items gently, and dry them with a soft cloth. You can also delay tarnishing by regularly polishing your silver jewelry.

 

14K Gold Jewelry

 

If it is properly taken care of, 14K gold jewelry will keep its timeless luster and remain a great investment piece for a long time. Here are some tips on how to treat this most iconic of all metals.

What can happen to gold?

Although it is quite lasting and durable, gold can get scratched and dented, if it is treated too harshly – pieces worn on hands and wrists, such as rings and bracelets, are especially susceptible to this kind of damage. It is always wise to keep that in mind and take them off before activities that are potentially high-impact.

Frequently used gold that is repeatedly exposed to dust, moisture, perspiration and makeup can eventually collect dirt and marks, and over time lose some of its radiant shine.

Like most jewelry, gold can be altered and even damaged by acids, abrasives and other harsh chemicals. Chlorine is its worst enemy – it can weaken gold and eventually break it down, so it is best to take off gold jewelry before getting into a swimming pool or a hot tub. When using chlorine bleach, it is best to wear thick rubber gloves or remove your rings and bracelets altogether.

Cleaning and polishing

To maintain its beautiful luster, about once a month clean your gold jewelry that does not include soft gemstones, pearls or crystals with mild detergent and lukewarm water, using your fingers or a soft cloth. Or use a nonabrasive jewelry cleaner specifically designed for gold, to be on the safe side. You may help yourself with a soft-bristled brush (such as baby toothbrush) to gently loosen more stubborn dirt in hard to reach places. Never use toothpaste or baking soda! And always remember to close the drain if you are using your sink – many precious pieces have slipped away and gone down the drain while being cleaned! Rinse your jewelry in warm water, let it dry completely and buff with a soft, dry, lint free cloth. 

 

 

Rhodium Jewelry

 

About Rhodium-finished Jewelry:  To clean and maintain the fabulous look of your rhodium plated jewelry, don't use any chemicals on it.  Not even toothpaste.  Do not use a toothbrush (if it is a used brush, it may have residues of toothpaste; if it’s new, it may scratch the rhodium plate).  Please only use soft cloths specially produced to work with silver or gold jewelry.  Don't even think about an ultrasonic cleaner and don't use any abrasive of any type.  Forget about silver dips and don’t use ammonia based cleaning solutions.

 

Store jewels with gemstones in a soft pouch separate from other jewelry. Avoid contact with perfumes, cosmetics, hairspray, and household cleaners. Avoid contact with chlorinated pool water, sea salt water, and extreme activities such as contact sports, gardening, rock climbing etc. Clean your gemstone jewelry with a professional jewelry cleaner, or with a solution of warm water and ammonia, rinsing thoroughly and polishing carefully with a dry cloth to remove any residue.

 

Over time, fine jewelry can become a treasured family heirloom if it is cared for properly. Dust, pollution and daily wear all conspire to cloud the brilliance of gemstones. The surface of gold, platinum and silver jewelry can become dulled. Timeworn prongs and clasps can result in the loss of a stone or an entire piece of jewelry.   For these reasons, professional cleanings are recommended as often as once a year.
