    • Avoid using sprays such as perfume or hairspray, as well as putting lotion on while wearing your jewelry. The chemicals in these products can have a negative interaction with the jewelry’s metal and cause it to tarnish quicker. It is best to do these daily routines first and let fully dry. Putting your jewelry on should be the last thing you do in your daily beauty routine
    • Take your jewelry off before swimming, showering and working out. Sweat, certain soaps and chlorine will quicken the tarnishing process on the metal.
    • After you remove your jewelry each night, quickly wipe it down with a polishing cloth, cotton ball, or soft cotton towel to clean off any excess skin oil residue that it may have come in contact with. To avoid scratches, do not use synthetic material to clean your jewelry.
    • Oxygen in the air will tarnish sterling silver. So the way you store your jewelry is also important.
      1. Store your jewelry with the clasps unhooked.
      2. Place in a low humidity area.
      3. Pieces should be stored separately. Never stack your jewelry.
      4. Store in a dry space; i.e. lined jewelry box or individual airtight bags.
There are a couple ways to deep clean your jewelry at home: Warm water and a mild dish soap should be your first line of defense. Use approximately a quart of water mixed with a teaspoon of soap in a bowl. Let the jewelry soak for about 10 minutes. For your cubic zirconia pieces, use a soft bristle brush to restore the natural shine and clarity. Following the soak, rinse your jewelry with warm water. Use a cotton towel or polishing cloth to pat it down, and lay it down on the cloth to soak up any remaining moisture. Repeat these steps if your piece is extra dirty. Another option is making a light paste of baking soda and water. Put a dime sized amount of the paste on your jewelry and rub with a soft bristle toothbrush. On pieces with intricate sketching and crystals, dilute the paste even more. Run the jewelry under warm water and lay on a cloth or paper towel after. Proper cleaning should be done to maintain the maximum appeal of the crystals and metal. Polishing your jewelry before it becomes too tarnished will minimize the amount of work needed. If taken care of properly, your beautiful jewelry can be handed down as family heirlooms for generations to come. Shop now to add to your collection.
