Below we have discussed various kinds of jewelry and the methods to care for them.

Silver – how to clean

Silver oxidizes with time; therefore, it is very important to take good care of this metal. However, as Silver is a soft metal it can get easily scratched, and scratches cannot be removed. Therefore, Sterling Silver should always be cleaned with a soft cloth, mild soap (nonalcoholic, pH neutral) and warm water. While cleaning silver, it is best to use silver polishes or solutions designed specifically for silver jewelry. With this, one should also make sure to not touch the gemstones while cleaning in order to prevent the jewelry from scratches.

Also, one should remove the jewelry before taking part in any activity, like – sports, cleaning etc. It is also advisable to remove the jewelry before going in water or bed. If you are going for a party, make sure to wear the jewelry only after applying the cosmetics (perfumes, body lotions, cosmetics with alcohol) this will prevent the exposure of your jewelry to harmful chemicals.

Gold-plated silver – how to clean

Gold plated jewelry is extremely sensitive. In order to maintain the shine of this jewelry, it should be cleaned with a soft polishing cloth. However, make sure to clean your jewelry pieces very carefully, as the gold-plating can wear off. While cleaning, keep away from ultrasonic cleaning, strong chemicals or polishing liquids. Silver is a soft metal and can get scratches easily. Therefore, while cleaning the gold-plated silver with the cloth just make sure to not touch the gemstones, as the scratches on the gold-plated silver can never be removed.

Although this jewelry will not tarnish, but you still will see the golden color getting dull due to the reaction between the metals in the gold alloy and air. In order to prolong the life of this jewelry, we recommend removing the jewelry before taking part in any activity, like – sports, cleaning etc. It is also advisable to remove the jewelry before going in water or bed. If you are going for a party, make sure to wear the jewelry only after applying the cosmetics (perfumes, body lotions, cosmetics with alcohol) this will prevent the exposure of your jewelry to harmful chemicals. Moreover, your natural skin PH level also has a role in determining how long the gold plating will last. Therefore, it is extremely vital to take special care of your gold-plated jewelry.
