When you have received your lovely jewellery, no matter how much it costs or what it is made from, you will love it and cherish it. To help you look after it and keep it in the best condition we have put a few tips and suggestions together for you. Always try and keep your jewellery in a jewellery roll or a lovely jewellery box away from the air.
Costume Jewelry Care And Cleaning
Costume jewellery and fashion jewellery is often produced with non-precious metals, usually gold or silver plated, and with or without synthetic or glass stones. Costume jewelry could be antique, period, or contemporary. Today, there are many collectors of every style of costume jewelry.
Jewellery Care: Be aware of tarnish which may occur as a result of oxidation, caused by the interaction of metal, silver or gold plated costume jewelry with certain elements such as oxygen or sulfur as well as with certain acids. To keep your costume jewelry tarnish-free, frequently clean your costume jewelry in a mild dishwashing liquid diluted in water. You can use fresh, uncontaminated commercial silver dip liquid, only. Use of a polish cloth, paste or other strong jewelry cleaner is not recommended.
Silver Jewellery Care And Cleaning
Tarnish is a product of oxidation, caused by the interaction of silver jewellery with certain elements such as oxygen or sulfur as well as with certain acids. Tarnishing on silver jewelry, when worn on a regular basis, usually does not occur. Storage for a prolonged time causes silver jewelry to tarnish. To keep your silver tarnish-free, frequently clean your silver in a mild dishwashing liquid diluted in water but make sure you thoroughly dry your silver jewellery after exposure to water.
To remove tarnish or oxidation film from silver you can use fresh, uncontaminated commercial silver dip liquid, polish paste or polish cloth, available to buy online at Treasure Box.
Fine Jewellery Care & Cleaning
Jewellery and gemstones require special care when wearing, storing, or cleaning. Do clean fine jewelry often to maintain its sparkle and beauty. Do not use toothpaste as its abrasives can damage softer gems and metals. All fine jewelry can be safely cleaned by soaking for 10 minutes in warm soapy water (using a non-detergent soap). Use a soft brush on harder gems to loosen any dirt around the prongs. To reduce greasy build-up on diamond jewelry, dip it in plain alcohol or vodka before soaking.
