Gilbert, Arizona (PRWEB) June 30, 2014
For those who wear their jewelry on a regular basis, keeping it clean and looking its best can require some work. Daily activities such as showering, working out, applying body care and gardening, may cause damage and at the very least, leave a dull and dingy appearance. Forever Diamonds, a leading provider of jewelry and watch repair in Gilbert, AZ, knows the importance of proper jewelry maintenance and recommends consumers follow these three basic guidelines when caring for their favorite statement pieces.
1. Take it off. First and foremost, it’s important to remember to remove all jewelry before performing common tasks. Activities such as cleaning the house, gardening, swimming and applying cosmetics can cause physical damage and the exposure to certain fluids can cause chemical reactions which lead to color changes and even structural damage.
2. Clean with Care. Cleaning jewelry on a regular basis is a sure way to keep it looking its best, but it’s important to take precaution while doing so. Warm water works best, but rubbing alcohol is also known for working wonders. However, do not use bleach – it destroys jewelry.
3. Secure and Protect. Jewelry should always be stored away in a secure container when not in use to avoid damage of loss. Traveling can also be tough on jewelry, so it’s wise to use a small travel case or something similar to protect favorite pieces while on the road. Padded or fabric-lined boxes are ideal, but even something as simple as a gift box works fine.
