Tips on Caring for Jewelry

by Peter R on June 02, 2021

We recommend to quickly give your personalized gold or silver jewelry a quick wipe  at the end of the day by using a soft cleaning cloth to remove any fingerprints or oils that may have accumulated from normal wear.

Once a week, we recommend a deeper clean.  All you need is water and liquid soap.

  • Mix 1/2 cup of warm water with a few squirts of mild liquid soap
  • Let your jewelry soak for three minutes
  • Remove your items and rinse with clean water
  • Allow the jewelry to dry
  • That’s it!

Sterling silver jewelry requires extra care, so for these precious items we recommend a silver polish. You can purchase a quality silver cream at most jewelry stores, drug stores and even supermarkets.


Always Make up first, then accessories

Lotions, hairspray, and some cosmetics contain chemicals that can be harmful to your jewelry. It is always best to apply your makeup first and then put on your jewelry in order to minimize exposure that can be damaging.

Take it off before you sweat it off

Make sure to remove your jewelry before all intense physical activity. This will protect it from reacting to the chemicals in your sweat or from any damage that may occur in contact sports.

Do not wear jewelry in shower or sauna

Harmful chemicals they contain could also do a number on your personalized jewelry. Putting soap in the shower while wearing your personalized necklace, bracelet, or rings can cause a film to form over the precious metal, dulling the sheen and diminishing its gorgeous shine.

Do not wear while in pools or Jacuzzis

Pools and Jacuzzis are full of chlorine that, if exposed for too long, can cause your jewelry to discolor. So play it safe: When you're stripping down into your bathing suit, take off your jewelry too.

Don't clean with chemical cleaners

Harmful chemicals and jewelry don’t mix. The chemicals in cleaning products can be harmful to the quality and longevity of jewelry pieces.

Be smart about safekeeping

Properly storing your jewelry will keep it looking new. Keep your customized jewelry in a box where it won't get tangled up with other items or damaged from too much movement. A jewelry box with a soft lining is perfect, but you can even put a fabric liner inside a shoe box to keep your items nestled and safe. Anti-tarnish strips are also a great investment to keep out oxidants than can tarnish and dull your pieces.
