Every woman adores their favorite jewelry items, but between the harsh effects of the environment and day-to-day wear and tear, a girl’s favorite pieces can be damaged. Here are the best ways to keep your baubles in tip-top shape.
1. Apply perfume before jewelry. While some girls feel bare without a spritz of their favorite fragrance, perfumes can damage the finish on jewelry. Make sure to put on your favorite scent prior to wearing necklaces, bracelets and rings.
2. Remove jewelry before applying lotions and creams. A little lotion is often needed after a shower or bubble bath, but certain ointments might harm your favorite items. Try to remove all pieces before putting oily substances on your skin.
3. Clean your jewelry at least once every two months. Whether you prefer to do it yourself at home, or drop your gems at a jewelry store, making sure that your items are spic-and-span is vital to keeping them shiny and beautiful. Consider purchasing at-home cleaning kits, or use a bit of soap and warm water to increase the longevity of investment pieces.
Having jewelry is wonderful, but keeping it looking fabulous takes time, care and consideration. A few small steps can go a long way.
