Jewelry is one of the most precious things in our lives. It is important to know and know how to take care of these and how to protect your jewelry so that the beauty it has is protected and preserved for a lifetime and can be passed on to the next generation as well.
There are plenty of ways to look after your jewelry. With light and heat, you’ve got to be alert first. Much as the harmful rays of the sun can impact the skin, heat and light can also damage or ruin the beauty of your jewelry. As time goes by the quality of your jewelry will improve. It can fade or the gemstones could get hurt, like topaz and amethyst.
They can bleach delicate materials if exposed to sunlight. On the other side, gems such as amber, when exposed to sunlight as well can darken. You have to be as patient as possible, as some of your gems may dry out, discolor or break.
Holding your jewelry free from contaminants is the next tip. Whenever you are swimming, particularly if it is a chlorinated pool, before diving, fine jewelry should be removed. Everyday compounds, such as lotion, perfume, make-up or hairspray, consist of chemicals that can perfectly ruin your precious jewels, so you have to be very careful.
Other cleaners that you must also note that can damage your jewelry are chlorine bleach, and other common household solvents.
