A little shimmer is the perfect way to add a sophisticated dimension to your swimwear. A delicate pendant & gold earrings are preferred because they inspire thoughts of the golden sun. Earrings with a little bit of movement and flexibility will look great when you turn your head or walk along the beach.

10 Tips To Clean & Protect Your Jewelry

If diamonds are a girl’s BFF, then the rest of the pieces can easily qualify as close kin too. Therefore it is only fair to protect these fancy folks of yours with utmost care. Follow these 10 tips to keep your jewelry squeaky clean and protect them against damage.

 

  1. First and foremost, whether fake, real or semi-precious jewelry, every single piece of jewelry deserves a dry place devoid of humidity for storage. Lets not oxidize things on our own.JewelryStorageCabinet.jpg

  1. Avoid taking your jewelry for swims, spas, sports, showers or any other activities that involve direct contact with rough surfaces, water, soap or chemicals.Cleaning-Your-Jewelry

  1. When getting ready, make sure to put on jewelry after your make up is done. Your foundation looks best only on your skin. Also, refrain from getting perfume on your ornaments to avoid tarnishing.backstage-beauty-tips-stylelist-canada-6

 

  1. Always use warm water to clean your jewelry and try not a clutter-free storage system for minimum abrasion.storage

  1. Gold doesn’t tarnish but it does get dull overtime owing to lotion, dirt or your body’s natural oils. The best way to restore the sheen is by dipping the piece in a mix of water and a very (VERY) mild detergent for a few minutes and then gently scrubbing it with a very soft – ideally baby – toothbrush. Rinse and wipe with a polishing cloth.gold

 

  1. Gold-plated items are exposed to wearing away of the coating so store them smartly. Either keep them in a velvet-lined box or wrap in a soft cloth before keeping. To clean up, gently wipe your jewelry with a damp cotton cloth. This will eliminate any dirt or dust on the surface. Alternatively, a non-abrasive polishing cloth too can help restore the shine.diamond-cleaning.png

  1. Silver – if not oxidized – is a delicate and soft metal and unless you’re aiming for a grunge look, you’ll want it scratch-free and shiny. Use either proper silver cleaning cloth or 100% cotton to wipe it up gently. Other materials like polyester, paper or coarse fabrics often contain wood fibers or synthetics that can cause tiny scratches in the surface of your fine sterling silver jewelry.silver

  1. Store stone-encrusted pieces, diamonds or gemstones separately. For example, before putting away stone earrings in a box, seal them both in different pouches to avoid scratches from rubbing together. Quick Tip: Never hold on to the stone while taking off diamond or stone encrusted pieces as this may cause the gem stone wriggle free.take-off-engagement-ring-0.jpg

 

  1. Diamonds – the BFF – require regular cleaning. soak the diamond in an ammonia-based household cleaner (such as window cleaner) overnight, once or twice weekly. In the morning, remove the diamond from the cleaner and brush it with a soft, clean toothbrush to remove any leftover dirt. Make sure you clean the back of the diamond well as this is the area that gathers most of the oil and dirt.Safely-Clean-Diamond-Ring-Step-3-Version-2

  1. Your pearls are extra sensitive so refrain from storing them with other articles. It is best to keep them in satin-lined boxes to keep scratches and nicks at bay. Cleaning up pearls is a delicate job and therefore make sure your cleaner is marked safe for the same and additionally, use a drop of olive oil to wipe your pearl pieces to retain the luster.pearl
