Summer is here and there is no better time than now to show off your custom designed jewelry so people can really see it! Whether wearing gold, silver, or even platinum, give your jewelry a little extra care when out and about this season to keep diamonds and gemstones beautiful and noticeable while you are having fun in the sun!
1. Apply Makeup, Sunscreen, and Moisturizers First
Sunscreen, makeup, and other lotions and preparations will gunk up all the crevices and crannies on your diamond and gemstone custom designed jewelry. Filmy layers and fingerprints detract from the appearance of the bright, sparkling shine of your fine jewelry. You can easily avoid this by putting on jewelry after applying sunscreen and skin preparations, then giving them a few minutes to absorb into the skin.
2. Avoid Wearing While Swimming
Unless you are swimming in a body of fresh water, take diamond and other gemstone jewelry off before taking a dip. The chlorine in pools and hot tubs as well as the salt in any body of saltwater can discolor precious metals and dull the glistening, polished finish of gemstones. Jewelry can end up looking lackluster instead of lustrous when affected by chlorine and salt.
3. Wipe Down After Wearing
Always wipe your custom jewelry whenever you take it off, especially in the summertime, to remove sunscreen, sweat, and other impurities that can tarnish it or cause it to look dull. Use a soft, clean cloth made for fine jewelry that has been dampened slightly with water to get off any residue on the metal and stones so your custom designed jewelry will be clean and ready for the next wear.
4. Store It The Right Way
After giving your beautiful jewelry a good cleaning with a soft cloth, protect it by storing it in a case or box. Choose one that has a soft cloth lining to prevent scuffs and separate compartments to keep diamonds and other gems from scratching each other. Fine jewelry deserves a special place to sit when it is not being worn and displayed!
5. Get A Postseason Professional Cleaning
Once the summer season comes to an end, get ready for holiday accessorizing by taking your custom jewelry to a qualified jeweler or gemologist for a professional cleaning. An ultrasonic cleaning and polishing by trained bench jewelers can bring back the sparkle to diamonds and precious metals, and most gemstones so they stand out when adorning your festive holiday outfits.
