A well-crafted piece of fine jewelry can last a lifetime, but many factors can contribute to everyday wear and tear that you might not be able to see. With help from Hannoush Jewelers, this quick and easy guide can help when it comes to storing and cleaning your fine jewelry.
When jewelry is not being worn, storing it is the best solution to help retain its value and appearance.
For items such as individual gemstones, a soft pouch is a great way to protect the pieces from encountering other hard surfaces or metals.
Sterling silver pieces should be stored in a cool, dry place and wrapped in a soft piece of cloth or felt that is tarnish-preventive.
Taking this step will help to ensure your silver jewelry will not become tarnished if it becomes exposed to air or light during storage.
Make sure to always store fine jewelry at room temperature and away from direct sunlight, ideally in a place with low humidity to avoid tarnishing.
A multi-leveled jewelry box or armoire is the perfect fit for your fine jewelry collection. This simple solution can help keep the jewelry organized, out of direct sunlight, and protect the pieces from damage.
Cleaning Your Jewelry
Cleaning your fine jewelry can be done with ease using a do-it-yourself solution.
Mixing lukewarm water, mild dish soap, and using a soft brush, you can buff away any dirt or dust with a gentle swipe.
For more precious metals like sterling silver, using a silver polishing cloth — with or without a special silver cleaning solution can help make the piece look new once again.
If you are worried about causing harm by cleaning your fine jewelry yourself, the professionals at Hannoush Jewelers will be delighted to clean and inspect the pieces for you.
