Jewelry Care Guide

Even high-quality jewelry, whether it's 14K or 18K gold, requires special care to ensure it remains radiant for generations to come. At Lovemade Diamonds, we understand the importance of preserving your precious pieces. Here, we provide guidance on how to care for your gold jewelry.

 

When Should You Remove Your Gold Jewelry?

To maintain the beauty and longevity of your gold jewelry, it's essential to know when to take it off. We recommend removing your jewelry in the following situations:

 

  1. Cleaning Your Home: Chemicals used in cleaning products can harm both the metal and gemstones in your jewelry.

  2. Engaging in Sports: Whether you're playing contact sports or working out in the gym, it's best to remove your jewelry to prevent damage or injury.

  3. Swimming in a Pool: Chlorine in pool water can weaken the gold over time, potentially causing it to lose its luster.

  4. Swimming in the Sea: The cold water in the sea can cause your ring to slip off easily.

  5. During Your Skincare Routine: Moisturizers can leave a greasy film on your jewelry, diminishing its brilliance over time.

  6. Working in a Garden: Soil and outdoor activities can be abrasive to your jewelry.

 

How to Clean Gold Jewelry

Proper cleaning is crucial to maintain the shine of your gold jewelry. Follow these steps to clean your pieces effectively:

 

  1. Gather your materials: You'll need warm water, mild dish soap (without detergents), and a soft brush. Avoid using toothpaste, baking soda, or abrasive cleaners.

  2. Close the drain: Always remember to close the sink drain before cleaning your jewelry to prevent accidental loss.

  3. Clean gently: Use the warm, soapy water and a soft brush to gently clean your jewelry. Be thorough but gentle to avoid scratching the metal or gemstones.

  4. Rinse and dry: After cleaning, rinse your jewelry in warm water to remove any soap residue. Ensure it's completely dry before wearing it again.

  5. Buff with a cloth: Use a soft, dry, lint-free cloth to gently buff your gold jewelry, restoring its natural shine.

  6. Polishing cloth: To maintain your jewelry's luster, utilize the polishing cloth we included with your order.

  7. Professional cleaning: Consider visiting a local jeweler once a year for a professional cleaning using an ultrasonic machine for a thorough and expertly done cleaning.

 

Safely Storing Your Jewelry

Proper storage can prevent your jewelry from getting scratched or damaged. Here's how to safely store your pieces:

 

  1. Store separately: To prevent pieces from knocking together, store your jewelry separately in individual compartments or pouches.

  2. Use plastic bags or cloth pouches: Consider using individual plastic bags or cloth pouches to keep your jewelry safe and free from dust.

  3. Avoid bathrooms: Do not leave your jewelry in a bathroom for extended periods as the moisture and humidity can affect its condition.

 

By following these simple guidelines, you can ensure that your gold jewelry remains exquisite and cherished for generations to come. Our client care team is always happy to answer any additional questions and provide expert advice on jewelry care.
