Taking the proper steps to care for your jewelry will ensure that it maintains its original luster, brilliance and beauty. Regular jewelry cleaning and maintenance is easy if you have the right products and you know how to use them. This guide will help to better educate you on jewelry care, so that you can appreciate your pieces forever.
Gold is a strong metal that does not tarnish. It can, however, become dull or dirty through contact with skin oils, food, cosmetics, cleaning products and other materials. Basic gold cleaning can be done in warm water with a mild detergent-free soap, but to truly bring out the shine of your gold jewelry you should consider purchasing Connoisseur’s Revitalizing Gold Jewelry Cleaner.
High quality sterling silver can scratch and tarnish easily unless it’s taken care of properly. The best way to prevent damage to your silver is to store it in a sealed plastic bag when not in use. Inevitably your silver will need cleaning, so it’s important to know what to look for in a cleaner. There are many brands of silver polish available, but we recommend Connoisseur’s Revitalizing Silver Jewelry Cleaner. Other cleaners sometimes contain chemical detergents that can damage silver, but with Revitalizing Silver Jewelry Cleaner you can safely clean and polish your silver without fear of diminishing its beauty and value.
Cleaning and caring for gemstones and pearls can be tricky. Most precious stones and pearls have a negative reaction when exposed to cleaning chemicals, so it’s important to choose the right cleaner. We recommend Connoisseur’s Delicate Jewelry Cleaner because it is strong enough to restore luster and shine, but mild enough so that it won’t damage even the most delicate of the precious stones or pearls.
Settings, shape, and cut can also make cleaning gemstones tricky. We recommend Connoisseurs Jewelry Cleansing Gel and Brush for cleaning those hard-to-reach spots on your jewelry.
