Today, I want to share with you some of my secrets for taking care of those special pieces of jewelry that are part of our lives. Jewelry is more than just accessories; they are stories, emotions, and expressions of our style. Taking care of them properly not only extends their lifespan but also ensures they remain timeless treasures. Here are my tips for caring for your jewelry.
- Store your jewelry in soft cases, keeping them separated from each other. This will prevent scratches and tangles, ensuring each piece retains its shine and original shape.
Avoiding Contact with Harsh Substances:
- Avoid contact with perfumes, lotions, and chemicals. Apply your beauty products before putting on your jewelry to protect them from potential damage.
Regular and Careful Cleaning:
- Use a soft and clean cloth to polish your jewelry regularly. You can also use a brush with soft bristles to remove deeper dirt.
- Enjoy your jewelry on appropriate occasions, avoiding wearing them during intense activities. Remove your jewelry before engaging in activities that may expose them to impacts or damage.
- Conduct periodic inspections with a professional jeweler to ensure the stones are secure, and the closures are in good condition. This ensures your jewelry maintains its quality and shine over time.
Gold Plating and Specific Care:
- If your jewelry is gold-plated, it's normal for its tone to change over time due to constant use, sweat, and skin pH. At Liza Echeverry Jewelry, we offer a re-plating service. Get in touch with us, and we'll arrange for you to send the piece to us or meet at our showroom in Medellin, Poblado: Showroom Link
- If your gold jewelry loses its shine, a professional jeweler can restore it with proper cleaning and polishing. At Liza Echeverry, we also provide this service. Contact us for more information.
Avoiding Physical Activities:
- It's essential not to wear your jewelry during physical activities such as swimming, jogging, etc., to preserve their quality and prevent potential damage.
Caring for your jewelry with this personalized attention will not only keep them in their best condition but also ensure each piece continues to tell your story with elegance and style. I hope you find these tips helpful in making your jewelry shine as brightly as you do!
