If you own a piece of personalised jewellery, it is essential to take the time to clean it regularly. Not only can cleaning jewellery help to maintain its beautiful appearance, but it will also help maintain the quality of the item. The first step to cleaning jewellery is to remove the stones from their setting. Some of these stones may need to be gently rubbed away with a soft toothbrush or a cotton bud to get them off. Once they are removed, your jewellery can be cleaned with warm water and a small amount of jewellery cleaning solution.
Ensure that you rinse your jewellery thoroughly with the cleaning solution before placing it in a clean pouch or jewellery bag. It is also advisable to store your jewellery items in a separate pouch to separate them from other things you have. Most jewellery pieces can be cleaned using this method, mainly using a mild cleaning solution. If you are in a hurry to clean your items, or if the jewellery has precious stones on it, you can use a commercial cleaning solution.
Once your jewellery has been cleaned and is ready to be worn, it should not be put through the rinse until completely dry. You should never re-use the same towel or hair dryer to dry your jewellery, or you risk causing damage to the finish on the stones. It is important to remember that if you are using a hairdryer to dry your jewellery, you should not wear it immediately as the heat from the dryer could cause some damage. You should also avoid having the jewellery wet whilst being cleaned, as the moisture could cause the finish on the stones to fade.
Before storing your personalised jewellery for her, you may want to wrap it in a plastic bag and keep it in a cool, dry place. You mustn’t leave your jewellery items in the refrigerator because this can cause them to get damaged. It would help if you did not store your jewellery in the bathroom either, as this can cause the stones to become loose. The best way to keep your jewellery items is all in one container or a box that can be sealed in the refrigerator.
You should avoid putting your jewellery into bags or boxes because it can leave your jewellery items with chemicals on them, which can cause damage over time. This does not mean that you should not put your jewellery into your pocket or purse. However, you will need to take extra precautions to prevent your jewellery from becoming contaminated with germs. When cleaning your jewellery, you should ensure that you do not put your fingers directly into the cleaning solution. It would help if you also considered purchasing some cotton buds or an alcohol swab to dip into the cleaning solution to avoid touching the stones directly.
If you are using a cloth to clean your jewellery, you should remove all of the residues from the fabric before you wipe the jewellery down. You should always start your cleaning process by gently cleaning the jewellery surface using a soft, damp cloth. As you work your way through the piece, you will begin to see pieces of jewellery come off the surface. This is normal and expected, but if you find pieces of jewellery that have broken off, you should take the piece to a jeweller as soon as possible. Cleaning your jewellery by hand is an art and not something that should be rushed. If you follow these simple tips, you will be able to keep your jewellery clean and looking great for an extended period.
