During the summer season, it’s even more important to take care of your fine jewelry. The value of your beautiful pieces comes not only from their aesthetics, but their capacity to become cherished family heirlooms. Exposure to elements such as sweat, sunblock, chlorine, sand, oils and lotions can impact the brilliance of diamonds and the luster of gold and silver. Proper care and maintenance become even more critical to preserve the true value of your fine jewelry.
The Sparkling Diamond
Your diamonds, unique in their unmatched beauty, rarity, and resilience still need a spa day. During summer, they are exposed to elements which can dull there exquisite brilliance. To ensure that your diamonds continue to sparkle, we recommend soaking your diamond jewelry in a mild detergent and warm water solution, followed by gentle brushing with a soft-bristled brush. Regular professional cleaning and inspections are vital to keep your diamonds looking their best.
Nurturing 18K Yellow Gold
Summer's heat and humidity can impact the luster of gold jewelry, but these can be kept in check with practical solutions. We recommend cleaning gold pieces with gentle soap and a soft-bristled brush. To prevent damage or tarnishing, store your gold jewelry in a cool, dry place, ideally in their original boxes or soft pouches. If your gold jewelry does tarnish, use a tarnish cloth designed specially for gold jewelry. Do not use a silver polish cloth on gold jewelry as it can dull the surface.
Preserving Sterling Silver
Sterling silver jewelry is no exception to summer's harsh elements, which can impact its appearance and longevity. To prevent tarnishing, it’s recommended to clean your silver jewelry with an anti-tarnish cloth explicitly designed for silver. Storing your silver jewelry in a cool, dry place, away from exposure to harsh conditions or any possible scratches, is essential. If your silver jewelry does become tarnished, we recommend Wright’s Silver Polish. A gentle and effective way to bring the brilliance back.
Be Mindful at the Barn
Wearing fine jewelry should be approached with caution around horses or in barn environments. The risk of damage or loss is worth considering as accidents can happen. Opting for silicone bands or temporary jewelry can be a safe alternative for a carefree accessory that doesn't compromise on style.
Fine jewelry requires care, attention, and maintenance to protect it from elements that can dull its shine or cause damage that could be irreparable.
