Our master jewelers know the value of preventative care. Therefore, our professional jewelers have prepared these cleaning tips to keep your jewelry looking new:
The simplest trick our jewelers know is that a toothbrush is the easiest and oldest cleaning tricks in the book. Make sure that you use an old, soft bristle brush, because the hard bristle can loosen gemstones from their settings. Lightly brush at hard to reach areas with the brush while frequently applying cleaning solution. Never use the brush to remove caked on dirt or grime because sometimes the dirt is holding the gemstone into place, especially if the setting is worn or weak. Old toothbrushes are also great for cleaning watchbands, but remember to stay away from the watch case/movement, as it will develop rust – a killer of quartz or mechanical movements.
A jeweler will also avoid cleaning damaged, abrasive, cracked or broken jewelry. As with any other item broken our badly scratched items can exacerbate or worsen the problem. Also, if you see that your items are damaged while you are wearing them it only makes sense to remove and have them looked at. You know the old saying, ” an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
