When it comes to jewelry care, every piece of our jewelry is unique and at times needs special care to keep it looking its best.
Below are some care guidelines to help you keep your jewelry in its best condition.
Clean your jewelry as often as you can. Using a professional jewelry cleaning product that is non-abrasive prevents tarnishing.
Remove jewelry before taking a bath, showering, exercising, cleaning the house, swimming, outdoor work, makeup cosmetics and going to bed. Once removed, wipe your jewelry pieces with a soft cleaning cloth to eliminate the natural body oils.
Always try to avoid contact with any sort of chemicals‚ such as bleach and sea-salt water‚ hair spray, perfume‚ lotions‚ home cleansers etc. Note that chlorine will permanently damage, discolor and erode jewelry. It is strongly recommended that you remove all pieces of jewelry before using chemicals.
Jewelry can very easily tarnish when sprayed with perfume or hair styling products so it is best that your jewelry is the last thing you put on when getting dressed to leave the house.
Also, do not use toothpaste to clean jewelry, regardless what you may have heard.
Gold Jewelry Care
Keep your gold jewelry away from crude chemicals such as chlorine and cleaning detergents. This will reduce daily ware and lengthen gold’s shine. Store your gold pieces separately in soft pouch or cloth bags to protect them from the exposure to harsh elements. If you jewelry is heavy scratched and there is nothing you can do about it, Karenna offers a thorough re-polishing service.
Caring for Pearls
Pearls can keep their beautiful luster for many years, with the right care.Proper care of pearls is not difficult and is just a matter of remembering the basics that pearls are organic by nature, grown in water from living cells of a living creature. In other words they require moisture and do not like the heat so store them in a pouch away from any sort of heat. Never expose your pearls to water with chlorine.
