Taking Proper Care of your Jewelry

Author: Shelia Foster

Keeping your jewelry looking its best is something that you should be mindful of as your go about your life. After all you did spend good money on it, so you may as well take care of it, so it looks great. Remember to keep some good rubber gloves around your place for when you have to use household cleansers. Some of these products contain chemicals that can damage your jewelery or at the very least take the shine out of it.

Even hair spray can gunk up your jewelry, so leave it off until you are ready to step out the door. You might think of getting some jewelery cleaner that you can use to clean your jewelry now and then or you can have a jeweler do it for you. Remember to have your stones settings checked and tightened every now and then or you might end up learning a hard lesson by looking down to see that the stone in your piece has fallen out to be lost forever.

Pearl necklaces should be restrung every two or three years particularly if the necklace is being worn regularly. Pay close attention to loose and malfunctioning clasps on bracelets and necklaces. If they appear to not be working perfectly, don't hesitate to have the piece looked at by a jeweler. Putting off having the clasp repaired is just asking for trouble. When storing your jewelry keep the pieces separated, so they won't scratch one another.

You should keep your jewelery secure and out of reach of children. Leaving your jewelry case within the reach of a child is just tempting them to play with the shiny pieces that draw their attention like bees to honey. If you have very expensive pieces you should consider having them insured and expensive jewelry should always be kept in a secure location such as a safe that is bolted to the floor of a closet.
