Owning jewelry is a cherished treasure. However, knowing how to care for your jewelry is essential to preserve its beauty, value and sparkle for generations.
Cleaning jewelry is very important, especially for those who wear selected pieces regularly. Some cleaning chemicals, though, are harmful for jewelry. The safest option is to buy a jewelry cleaner that is designed to be gentle on your favorite pieces and leave them sparkling. At Zaragoza Jewelers, you will find the best jewelry cleaner for gold and for silver. We invite you to watch the following video to see how to use it.
Wearing jewelry is part of its charm, but it’s important to be thoughtful about when you can wear it and when you should put it away in a safe place. It’s best to remove your jewelry for safekeeping when performing any manual task. Also, be careful with your jewelry when handling chemicals, including those used while engaged in household tasks, because some can cause discoloration on stones and metals. In the same context, we recommend putting your jewelry on after applying makeup and perfume. Some perfumes and makeup may damage your jewelry, and they may also build up a film that makes the jewelry look dull.
Finally, inspect your jewelry from time to time. As Ben Franklin once said, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Every time you visit Zaragoza Jewelers, we offer a free jewelry inspection to evaluate any sign of damage, wear, loose stones and more.
