It may seem like a daunting task, but in reality, there are so many ways to quickly and effectively clean your jewelry at home. Keep reading for some tips and tricks to get your jewelry looking as good as new!
How to Clean Silver
Love the look of silver jewelry, but hate the upkeep? Don’t worry, we understand! Silver can tarnish quickly if not properly taken care of. Make sure to keep a good polish on hand to buff your pieces every so often and keep them looking good as new. Not only will your silver be in tip-top shape, but silver polishes also leave a protective coating behind to prevent new tarnish from forming. Liquid polishes can tend to be a bit messy, so for a hassle-free experience, polishing wipes are perfectly fine to use instead!
How to Clean Gemstones
Your favorite colored gemstones are made to add a pop of color to any look so, make sure those colors pop with a thorough cleaning every now and then! To clean your gemstone jewelry:
- Mix water and a few drops of dish detergent in a bowl
- Place your jewelry in the bowl
- Take a soft bristle toothbrush and gently clean cracks and crevices in your jewelry where dirt can build up.
- Rinse and pat dry!
