Cleaning & Caring For Your Bracelet
Jewelry was meant to shine — and everyday use stands in the way of letting your bracelet be what it was truly meant to be.
Our jewelry has sentimental value in addition to monetary value, how do you plan to protect your memories and your investment?
A Guide to Cleaning & Polishing Your Bracelets
Sure, there are household staples you can utilize to clean and polish your jewelry at home.
You can submerge your bracelet in an antibacterial, non-abrasive cleaning agent that won’t damage your bracelet. Submerge your jewelry and try to let it sit for something like five minutes. Use a fresh toothbrush to clean the bracelet after you pull it out of the cleaning agent. Rinse with clean, warm water and let your bracelet sit on a paper towel until it dries.
Why Should You Clean Your Bracelet
Cleaning your bracelet is a way to protect and maintain the overall integrity of your jewelry. Cleaning and maintaining your bracelet will add to the longevity of the piece. It’s important to clean your jewelry often because dirt and other environmental debris can often cover up irregularities that need your attention. It’s far easier to recognize a repair needed when the piece of jewelry is properly cleaned.
How Often Should You Clean Your Necklace
The experts recommend that you get your jewelry professionally cleaned and polished once every six months. This will depend heavily on the frequency of use as well as the circumstances. For instance, if you have a tennis bracelet that you only wear once in a while to fancy events, you will not need to clean this item as much as an everyday item.
How You Should Store And Care For Your Bracelets
Having a safe and protected place to keep your jewelry is best. A closet shelf might do the trick, but it’s better to have a jewelry box of some sort that will help your jewelry stay away from dust and environmental debris.
However, letting your silver sit in your jewelry box will let it tarnish — the better alternative is to store it in an anti-tarnish bag. As it is advised to not wear your jewelry while doing activities such as housework or jumping into a pool, keep your jewelry stored correctly and get it checked and cleaned professional often.
How to Clean Your Bracelet At Home
At home, clean and polish remedies include dish soap, lemon juice, ammonium, club soda, and even Alka-Seltzer. Precious metals can generally stand up to these products and chemicals, but you should always double-check and do your research to avoid costly trouble. When you submerge your bracelet in club soda, beer, or even a glass of denture tablets dissolved in purified water, you will notice a visible difference in your jewelry’s cleanliness and shininess.
Avoid using baking soda to get rid of dirt and tarnish because it is abrasive and can leave tiny scratches on your bracelet.
One drawback to cleaning jewelry at home is that each precious metal requires a different process for proper cleaning. Gold, silver, pearl bracelets, gemstone bracelets — they all require a different level of care.
