Whether it was a gift, a family heirloom or a present to yourself, if you have nice pieces of jewelry, you should cherish them. That means taking proper care of them so that they stay nice so you can wear them for many years to come. Palisade Jewelers has put together some tips for caring for your jewelry!
• Take it Off: When you’re doing things that can potentially damage your jewelry like housework, swimming and manual labor, you should take off your jewelry! Another good idea is to buy a ring dish or jewelry box that you can regularly put your jewelry in so that you know where it is every time you take it off and this way it is less likely to be misplaces while it’s off.
• Clean it: Just like you wash your car, or clean the house to keep everything looking great, you should also clean your jewelry! Be gentle when cleaning your jewelry! If you clean too hard you can cause more harm than good. It is also important to remember that though there are cleaning solutions on the market that can be helpful, bleach is something you never want to use. Bleach can go beyond damage and actually ruin your jewelry, so make sure you never let it in contact with your jewelry. Remember also to use warm water instead of hot water to clean, as hot water can cause unsightly discoloration.
• Repair it: If you find a piece of jewelry needs repair, try to have it repaired quickly. Some damage can get worse if you wait to repair them, making a small problem a bigger one. If you find a problem with a piece of jewelry, bring it in to us at Palisade Jewelers! We have a great team of professionals ready to repair your jewelry and watches so that they look as good as new!
• Keep Your Jewelry Separate: Get a jewelry box or drawer with many sections and compartments so that you each piece of jewelry has its own spot. Necklaces and Bracelets can get tangled easily when mixed together!
