Cleaning and Caring For Your Earrings so They Sparkle Like New
Over time, jewelry has a way of losing its luster and shine. This can happen due to wear and tear, exposure to dirt, dust, oil, grease, and other environmental debris. This goes especially true for earrings, which are usually exposed to the elements.
Beauty products and even oil from your complexion could be damaging your jewelry as well.
In such cases, a good cleaning and polishing can help your earrings shine like new. My Jewelry Repair’s cleaning and polishing services will also help your jewelry stand the test of time.
A Guide to Cleaning & Polishing Your Earrings
Since jewelry and earrings have sentimental and monetary value, you probably don’t want muck up the process, which could mean doing irreparable damage. Instead, you will either want to do your research and make sure you clean and polish your earrings properly, or trust the services of an experienced professional (like My Jewelry Repair, for instance). Below, we go over the best way to conduct a good cleaning and polishing.
Why Should You Clean Your Earrings
Cleaning your earrings is important to keep them shining like new, to help make them last a long time, and it’s also important for your personal hygiene — especially when it comes to newly pierced ears.
How Often Should You Clean Your Earrings
If you’re keen on cleaning your earrings often, you can do so as often as you like. Generally speaking, though, you will want to clean your earrings at least once a week.
How To Handle Earring Storage and Aftercare
Store your earrings in a safe place — plastic ice cube trays come in handy for this. However, this option will not work for large hoop earrings. If you have a nice jewelry box that has little nooks for your earrings, that will work, too. You will want to be able to secure both earrings to one fastener, if possible — this way you don’t end up losing one (or both).
How to Clean Your Earrings At Home
You can clean your earrings at home and get rid of tarnish with household items like toothpaste, lemon juice, olive oil, soap and water, baking soda, or water and vinegar. However, if you don’t want to sit there scrubbing your earrings like you do with your molars, My Jewelry Repair can help. A professional cleaning and polishing is always the way to go.
We have a special and intuitive process for different types of jewelry, including earrings. We can clean and polish earrings of all kinds, including diamond earrings, other gemstone earrings, silver earrings, sterling silver earrings, gold earrings, pearl earrings, and more.

“Had a wonderful experience with MyJewelryRepair.com”
“Had a wonderful experience with MyJewelryRepair.com. You’d think it would be tricky sending your jewelry in to be repaired without being face-to-face. But everything went… so smoothly that it was astounding! Their online ordering tool makes it easy to get started. You immediately get confirmation and tracking information. The staff is quick to respond to any questions you might have. And if they have any questions, you get a call for clarification. The staff I have spoken with were super-friendly and understanding (shout-out to Iris, who is especially darling!) Then, when your receive your jewelry back in the mail and it is exactly what you wanted–AND at a reasonable price? Wow! I had a pair of modest diamond stud earrings that I never wore because I feared losing them. For years, I had wanted to have them converted into lever-back earrings, but hadn’t found the right local jeweler to do the work. My “new” earrings came back and they were gorgeous–simple and elegant, comfortable and secure. I now can wear them all the time without any worries. What I did next was to scrounge around in my jewelry collection looking for more projects (doesn’t everyone have some?) to send to MyJewelryRepair.com—because trust is an important part of the process.” CA Read more ““Had a wonderful experience with MyJewelryRepair.com””

“The customer service team is amazing”
“I sent in a ring to be resized–my estimate also suggested a stone resetting. I hadn’t planned on repairing the stone, and settled for just… the resizing. After accepting the repair, I had issues with my credit card going through on the website…we went back and forth with them bank and customer service team (for days) but when I was starting to feel hopeless about getting it resolved (and playing phone tag) I was informed my ring had already been shipped out free of charge, resized, and with a stone reset! The customer service team is amazing despite being a mostly online service center. if you ever need anything resolved, ask for Eboni. she works wonders. thank you thank you thank you!” Turtle Lake, ND Read more ““The customer service team is amazing””
