For most people, the warmer season is an active time of the year when they have the time to go on vacations and participate in outdoor activities like hiking, surfing, swimming, etc. With all of this activity, you need to give care for your jewelry which you often wear. So in preparation for the harsh months ahead, here are some tips to help keep your jewelry sparkling and ready to wear during any season.
How to care for your jewelry:
- During Activities: While most people don’t see it as a big deal to have their jewelry on when they go hiking, or during other outdoor activities, it’s a good idea to remove it beforehand. There is a high tendency that any hazard can befall your precious jewelry while you are at whatever outdoor activity, damaging it in the process.
- Knit Clothing: Knit blouses are popular in Summer and sweaters are inevitable in the Winter as they help you stay warm or keep you cozy. However, it is highly pertinent that you know what jewelry you should combine with which delicate knit clothing. Sometimes, knit fabrics and jewelry do not go well with one another. To be on a safer side, we highly recommend that you always put on your top before you put on your jewelry. Doing so will help you better care for your jewelry.
- Cleaning: Make it a habit to always clean your jewelry. Most of the time, all that’s needed for metal jewelry is getting them soaked in warm soapy water, rinsing and drying with a soft towel. For jewelry pieces that can’t be submerged in water such as clay, fashion or gemstone types, you can simply wipe them gently with a damp cloth. You can prevent sterling silver jewelry tarnish with regular cleaning and by applying an anti-tarnish polish to slow down the formation of tarnish.
- Safekeeping: It is very important to always keep your jewelry stored properly when not in use. Ensure you either keep your jewels in soft bags that are made of soft non-abrasive materials, or in a jewelry box. This will prevent your jewelry from always getting exposed to the extremely hot, humid or cold weather.
Your jewelry is very important, and you should care for your jewelry the proper way. The seasons shouldn’t stop you from wearing those precious jewelry treasures now; simply follow the tips above and you will definitely enjoy your jewelry all year long.
