Jewelry isn’t just beautiful — it’s also one of the best, most valuable purchases you can make. But it does require some upkeep to prevent it from becoming tarnished or damaged. Those tasks include proper cleaning and storage so that it lasts and retains its sparkle. At Brittany’s Fine Jewelry, we’ve spent over 35 years keeping our customers’ jewelry shining bright.
Everyone has at least one piece of fine jewelry they can’t go a day without wearing. It may be an engagement ring, a beautiful family heirloom, or a lovely necklace that was an anniversary gift. Whatever the item may be, you may unconsciously be damaging it with your daily routine.
Each piece of jewelry is unique and the stones, diamonds, and metals within them are no exception. Last time, we learned about keeping diamonds and precious gemstones in top notch condition through effective home jewelry cleaning, and today we will discuss how to clean jewelry that is made with precious metals.
Diamonds, gemstones, and precious metals need cleaning just like any other article of clothing. Over time, dirt, dust, and grime can dull the shine of your favorite pieces, so it’s important to take care of your jewelry to keep them sparkling. We have already talked about how to store your jewelry, now let’s talk about how to keep your jewelry clean and sparkly!
