How to clean and care for your jewelry from Prouds The Jewellers

Jewelry always enhances our style, whether it's a beautiful bracelet, earrings or an extravagant pearl necklace. For every person there will be a suitable piece of jewelry. However, sometimes we neglect them a bit and they can suffer from the passage of time. How to clean and care for your jewelry? Prouds The Jewellers, Australia's century-old jewelry store and one of the most important stores in the country, gives you some tips for the good condition of a piece.

Follow these tips if you have silver jewelry:

  • Avoid touching the pieces with each other or with other objects that may scratch them (nails, coins, etc.).
  • Avoid contact of the jewelry with corrosive oxidizing agents such as acids, lyes, alkaline salts, colognes, etc.
  • Avoid prolonged exposure to sun or light sources. To clean the pieces, it is best to use lukewarm water with a little neutral PH soap and a 100% cotton cloth. Despite prevention, silver oxidizes in contact with air and this causes its tone to tend to blacken or turn yellow.

Follow these tips if you have gold jewelry:

  • Put the jewelry in a mixture of warm water and diluted soap.
  • Let it stand for a maximum of 15 minutes in the water.
  • If there is a lot of dirt, rub gently with a toothbrush, making circular movements.
  • Remove the remains with warm water and dry with a little paper or a soft cloth.

In most cases, gold jewelry is more than just a fashion statement. The wedding ring, the earrings your partner gave you for that anniversary or the pendant you saw in the shop window and with which someone special surprised you mean a lot. That's why it's important to take good care of them, keep them clean and away from untrustworthy hands. To make your gold accessories last a lifetime, you should avoid bathing with them at the beach and pool, as sand, sea salt and chlorine can damage them. For the same reason, remove your gold jewelry (especially white gold) when taking a shower or washing dishes with tap water, as the latter usually has a high concentration of chlorine. On the other hand, it is important to store your gold accessories in individual felt bags to prevent them from being touched and scratched, especially when they have stones. However, if your jewelry is already scratched, take it to your nearest Prouds The Jewellers store to have it polished.

Another fact? The jewels that darken the most over time are yellow and rose gold earrings.

This happens due to daily friction with the skin, sweat, perfumes, makeup and other cosmetic products. To solve it there is nothing like onion juice. Cut an onion in half and rub it on the jewelry. If they are very dark, soak them in the onion juice for two hours. Then rinse them with water and dry them with a soft cloth.
