If you have invested a lot of your hard-earned money in a collection of jewelry you will want to go the extra mile in learning the proper techniques for preserving the finish and luster of your valuable pieces. Every type of gemstone and/or metal setting has its own unique set of precautions to prevent being damaged by certain common cleaning methods. Bead Emporium offers a competitively priced, professional inspection and cleaning service that uses the latest techniques and state of the art technology to give your jewelry back its luster.
Fine jewelry in particular needs a little love and attention to keep it looking at its very best, but we at Bead Emporium understand that cleaning precious metals and stones yourself can be daunting. Here are a few tips that will help you do just that:
Plated jewelry actually needs more care when cleaning than solid gold or silver. Avoid abrasive cleaning products that may tarnish or even remove the plate. Always use a clean, soft cloth.
Always remove your jewelry before doing any physical work, especially when cleaning. The chemicals may tarnish and even diamonds can be chipped if knocked.
Apply your perfume before putting on your jewelry. Silver jewelry can be damaged irreparably by perfume.
Keep your jewelry in separate fabric bags, or a fabric-lined box with individual sections. Items kept together may rub resulting in scratches. Direct sunlight or heat can cause color-change in semi-precious stones.
Above all, take your jewelry to be professionally cleaned at least every six months.
At Bead Emporium, we will clean all of your delicate jewelry professionally from pearls and diamonds to gold and silver. We use state-of-the-art technology and cleaning techniques to give your jewellery back its lustre and make it look as good as new for a very affordable price.
