3. Store your jewelry - How many of you store your designer shoes or couture bags in special boxes or cloth bags? Well your jewelry should be treated even better!!! (sorry did that sound bias) There are some fabulous jewelry boxes or armoire that allow you to store all your pieces separately and protect them from scratching metals or stones. If you are traveling, carry your jewelry in a soft 100% cotton satchel with different compartments so you can protect them as much as possible.
4. Love your jewelry - Use jewelry polishing clothes (I love my Miracles polishing cloth, it is infused with coconut oil for a natural clean). If you have enough pieces you may want to invest in a home based ultra sonic, some work with just warm water and others work with jewelry cleaning solutions. You may be asking yourself "what about toothpaste?" NO! NO! NO! It can be too abrasive on some stones and even some metals and it too can leave a film that really defeats the purpose. And last but not least just like you take your car in for its 3000 mile check up so must you take your jewelry in to a professional. Find a local jeweler who can inspect your jewelry and offer any recommended repairs or care.
Four simple tips to help you keep your jewelry beautiful and lasting longer. All jewelry is not made alike so different stones or metals may require special care or treatment. If you have any questions about specific pieces I would be happy to answer your questions.
