How to Take Care of Your Jewelry?

Your diamond, gold, silver, and platinum jewelry is valuable for its own sake and the sentiments you have for it. We have experienced it firsthand because the people, who visit our jewelry repair and service center in New Jersey to get their rings and necklaces fixed, are not merely after restoring the monetary value of their jewels. A lot of them want us to reproduce the old shape of their jewelry for emotional reasons.

 

We often notice in our jewelry repair store that broken armbands and earrings that bring people to us could have been saved with little protection, careful storage, and regular cleaning.

 

Protection

 

The jewelry you wear is susceptible to damage. Quite often, intricacy in design and fragility go hand in hand, so you have to be more careful with expensive, elaborately designed jewelry. Fortunately it is not hard. Anyone can adopt these commonsense precautions and avoid costly repairs that strike out of blue: 

 

    • Do not keep your jewels in your pockets to protect them from heavy impacts
    • Do not let anyone tug at your necklace
    • Avoid using household cleaners on your jewelry
    • Visit Alex & Cliff the moment you notice the clasps and prongs on your jewels have loosened up

 

 

 

 

 

 

Storage

 

Many people end up breaking their necklaces when they try to free them from a tangled mess of jewels. Avoid such scenarios with these tips:

    • Do not use a crowded storage.
    • Use pads with cloth pouches.
    • Store  diamonds with diamonds, and gold with gold.
    • Do not make piles.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cleaning

 

Dirt and other impurities have a penchant to cover the shiny surface of your jewelry. Clearing a thick layer of dirt off the surface can be hard if you do not clean your jewelry regularly. You can keep your jewels new-like if you make a habit to gently rub them with a soft cloth and lukewarm, soapy water. Avoid using sharp and pointing objects because gold and silver are soft metals and you can end up damaging your jewelry.

 

Your jewelry is expensive. Take a good care of it. Phone us on 973-762-0788 if you need any assistance in New Jersey. test123

    I just wanted to thank you for going over some tips to taking care of jewelry. I didn't know that you need to use some pads with cloth pouches when you store them. I'm interested to learn more about this and if there are some specific materials or designs that you may need to look for depending on the jewelry.
