Tips for taking care of jewelry
Tips for taking care of jewelry made from 925 sterling silver, 5A CZ diamonds, and 14K gold plated:
Store your jewelry in a dry, cool place, away from direct sunlight, heat, or moisture. You can use a jewelry box, pouch, or cloth bag to keep your jewelry safe.
Clean your jewelry regularly with a soft cloth or a jewelry cleaning solution that is specifically designed for silver and gold plated jewelry. Avoid using harsh chemicals, abrasives, or toothpaste, as they can scratch or damage the surface of your jewelry.
Remove your jewelry before swimming, showering, or exercising, as sweat, chlorine, and other chemicals can tarnish or discolor your jewelry.
Avoid exposing your jewelry to perfumes, lotions, or other cosmetics, as they can leave a residue on your jewelry and cause it to lose its shine.
Be gentle when handling your jewelry, especially when taking it on and off. Silver and gold plated jewelry can be delicate and easily scratched or bent.
By following these tips, you can help keep your jewelry looking beautiful and in good condition for years to come.
**Typically, solid gold, gold-filled, platinum, or sterling silver jewelry can handle a bit more water. Be careful with plated jewelry, as plating can wear off, and what’s left underneath can tarnish over time. Brass jewelry is better to avoid mixing with water, though it can be cleaned. You also may want to consider how likely the jewelry is to stay out of the way while you take a dip. Look for clasps that fully close so as not to fall off, and both necklaces and earrings that aren’t too chunky to get knocked or pulled off by your moves. You may remember the time that Kim Kardashian lost her diamond earring in the ocean — don’t let that be you. Since some of our most durable recommendations can be on the pricier side, you’ll want to consider if you’re comfortable wearing them in the water, should they potentially fall off — it’s hard to predict when a rogue wave might sweep you off of your feet.
