Jewellery Care Guide

A Complete Guide to Jewellery Caring

When your garments fade, you don't hesitate to replace them. When your handbag shows signs of wear and tear, you begin searching for a new one. Jewellery, on the other hand, is an entirely different matter. These beautiful diamonds can chip at the edges despite being the toughest substance. They may even fall out if you are not careful, making a beautiful piece of jewellery useless.

The Question Is: To Touch or Not to Touch?

Yes, this is a valid question because the less you touch your jewellery, the better. The oil from your skin is transferred to the stone whenever you touch your diamonds. This causes a film on the stone and makes it appear unclean over time. Don't poke your jewellery every now and then if you don't want your favourite diamond ring to lose its radiance.

Diamond rings or bangles should also be avoided when applying hairspray, creams, or lotions. This can gradually discolour diamonds and reduce their lustre. It should be noted that while diamonds repel water, grease and oils can easily stick to them. This applies to both cut and uncut diamonds.

Clean Your Diamond Jewellery on a Regular Basis

The way light passes through a diamond makes it shine. However, grease, sweat, and debris can obstruct light transmission. As a result, unless your diamonds are cleaned on a regular basis, you cannot expect them to sparkle as they should. Diamonds are simple to clean; below tips are all you need to know about cleaning your gold jewellery:

Some Tips to Clean Your Diamond Jewellery:

• Prepare a bowl of warm water.
• Add a few drops of mild and unscented soap to the warm water.
• Mix the soap thoroughly with the water and immerse your Jewellery in the mixture for around 30 minutes.
• Remove your jewellery and dry them with a clean cloth.
• Using a soft-bristled toothbrush, remove any leftover residue.

Store Diamonds Jewellery Carefully

Diamonds must be protected not only against loss or theft but also against damage. The stones can chip each other when one diamond rubs up against another. They can also scratch and harm any other jewellery with which they come into touch. There is no way to restore a diamond's inherent radiance once it has been destroyed. So it's better if you store each piece of jewellery separately and avoid them from brushing against each other. Invest in a fabric-lined Jewellery bag with discrete compartments for all of your Diamond Jewellery. You can also wrap each item of diamond jewellery with soft tissue.

Clean Your Diamond Jewellery on a Regular Basis

As much as most women and men like gold, they are also concerned when their jewellery loses its lustre. However, there are simple ways to keep your gold ornaments clean and gleaming. And you can do it all by yourself at home. So don't give up hope. You don't have to hide your favourite gold necklaces or bangles just because they don't shine. Here's all you need to know about cleaning your gold jewellery.

Some Tips to Clean Your Gold Jewellery:

• Fill a bowl with warm water and add a few drops of mild soap to make a solution.
• You can use mild detergents or a few drops of dishwashing solutions.
• Dip your gold jewellery into this mixture. Allow it to soak for 15-20 minutes.
• After that, rinse it with cold water and put it flat on a clean and dry cloth or towel. Let it air dry completely.
• To clean debris from nooks and crevices, use a soft-bristled brush. However, do not rub the jewellery vigorously.
• Remember to keep it safe and secure, preferably in a jewellery box.
• This soap-water-brush approach can be used to clean yellow, white, and rose gold jewellery.

NOTE: Cleaning your plain gold and gemstone-studded pieces gently can help them preserve their original lustre. Do not use hot or cold water. Instead of tap water, try sodium-free seltzer water or club soda. These carbonated liquids will release the grime that has settled in your jewellery. You can alternatively use a professional jeweller's cleaning solution.
