How to clean and maintain your beloved jewelry?
Jewelry is very absorbent and will absorb the oils from your skin. Dust and grease will adhere to your jewelry and make it lose its sparkle.
When you find your jewelry covered in dirt and grease, you can gently brush it clean with a soft toothbrush with a bit of gentle soap, then scrub it clean several times with a cotton paper towel until it glows again.
Notes on cleaning by yourself:
·Do not use chlorine or cleaning products containing chlorine, and do not use toothbrushes that are too hard, as this can easily cause abrasion to the gemstone and scratch the metal, which can cause it to lose its luster.
·Cleaning ammonia products will clean diamonds and gold very well but may damage other stones. So do not soak your jewelry in ammonia-containing cleaners for extended periods; it will likely degrade the solder in the jewelry.
·The ultrasonic cleaning method can clean diamonds but can cause damage to other stones. Cleaning diamonds with ethanol have good results because it evaporates quickly. Please do not use oil cleaning products, as they can spot or dull the rocks.
·Finally, it would be best if you preferably washed in a bowl or small basin, as this will prevent the stones from falling out of sight while you are passing. If you are cleaning in a sink, ensure the sink strainer is dense enough or plug the drain to prevent the stones from accidentally falling and being difficult to retrieve.
·If you can't clean them yourself, or if the jewels fall off your jewelry. Please feel free to return them to a jewelry boutique for a thorough cleaning and evaluation so that a professional can clean them for you or make the relevant adjustments.
