How to Take Great Care of Your Fine Jewelry
Here are some easy tips to take care of your Fine Jewelry. Whether it's an engagement ring your partner gave or a designer piece you brought for yourself, there's always a sentimental reason behind every piece of jewelry, and you want to keep it as brilliant and as enchanting as the day you first saw it.
1. Know when to take your jewelry off
You should always remove your jewelry when working with your hands or engaging in activities that involve chemicals or abrasives. For instance when swimming in chlorine water, working in the garden, playing sports or working out.
But at the same time, you must resist the temptation to remove your jewelry when lathering up in public. Hand washing is indeed essential, but the possibility of you leaving the ring on the countertop or, worse, drop it down the drain, is too great a risk.
2. Wear your jewelry last
Wait until you're completely ready before donning your jewels. the chemicals from make-up, hair products, lotion, and perfume can damage your pieces. It's best to think of jewelry as the finishing touch for your look.
3. Know how to store your jewelry
Store your fine jewelry so they can't touch one another. Damage can be caused by multiple gemstones rubbing on each other. You can use your Lucce jewellery box as a safe storage place - this comes with every purchase of our fine jewelry.
You may also wipe your treasured piece before storing them in their containers to remove any dirt, moisture, or grime, that might have built up throughout the day. A cleaning cloth is also included in the packaging that Lucce offers, whenever you purchase from us.
4. Don't clean your jewelry with harsh chemicals
Bleach or other cleaning agents may dull the finish of your jewelry. Instead, wash it with warm water and a gentle colorless liquid soap. Castile soap or a mild dishwashing liquid, or even a gentle hand soap with no moisturizer, antiseptic, or harsh chemical should work well.
Use a cloth or soft bristled brush to help get grime out. Once it's clean make sure you rinse it and dry it quickly and well.
5. Always bring a jewelry case when travelling.
While regular storage is important, travel storage is even more essential. Tossing your jewelry in a toiletry bag or suitcase can cause a great deal of damage.
