Jewellery Care

How to care for fashion Jewellery

We all know that fashion jewellery is fun, as well as a great way to revamp an outfit; it’s wonderfully wallet-friendly, but also be very delicate. So to prevent those accessories and beads from breaking or tarnishing on you, follow these simple tips, which will keep your fashion jewellery always looking fabulous, fresh and intact.

Cautious Contact

Never allow your fashion jewellery to come in contact with harsh chemicals, oils, nor spray perfumes directly on them. This will cause the jewellery to fade, discolour, or even ruin them completely. And we wouldn’t want that!

Tarnish Prevention

To prevent jewellery tarnishing, use some anti-tarnish tissue paper to wrap your fashion jewellery in, which will give your jewellery the best protection against blemishing. Also, for a nice polished finish, use a soft cloth or eyeglasses cleaning cloth, either way- both work wonders.

Storage

Think of your jewellery box, as the Fort Knox of jewellery. It’s a safe haven meant to protect your fashion jewellery from being scratched, tarnished, chipped or damaged in any way. For a more travel savvy jewellery “box” - opt for a silk or velvet pouch.

Water Contact

So before you do the dishes, hop into the shower, or go to the gym, take off all your fashion jewellery, including your favourite everyday pieces...that you would never take off, to prevent liquid damage. Have in mind, costume jewellery plating is usually thin and can eventually wear off, so be careful! Fashion jewellery is not meant to last forever, but why not try to make it last, as long as you can! We hope these tips guide you on how to care for your fashion jewellery; in order to give your jewellery collection the longevity that it deserves.
