With the development of society, the improvement of people's quality of life and the improvement of aesthetic requirements, the styles of jewelry are becoming more and more diverse. Although there are many kinds of jewelry, many aspects of their maintenance are the same. OYA jewelry has sorted out the most important points for everyone. Let’s take a look below:
If it is gem-encrusted jewelry, although the general gemstones have high hardness and are not easy to be worn or damaged, it is necessary to avoid impact and friction as much as possible to prevent cracking or tarnishing of the surface.
Avoid contact with high temperature and ling and alkali solution. The physical and chemical properties of many gemstones inlaid in jewelry are not very stable, and they are easy to fade when exposed to high temperature or in the sun for a long time. When dissolved, jewelry that is not pure gold or pure white will also be damaged or corroded by high temperature (specified fire grilling) or acid or alkali solution.
2. Check frequently to prevent gemstones from falling off. The gemstones inlaid on gold and silver jewelry are often only fixed by a few small claws of gold and silver, which are not very reliable. Even if it is bezel-set, it is necessary to check its firmness frequently and deal with it in time if any problems are found.
When participating in production labor, sports activities, bathing, shampooing, and housework, jewelry should be removed to prevent gems, gold and silver jewelry from being damaged by impact and abrasion, gemstone falling off, or being eroded by chemicals in detergents.
3. Clean and save in time. When jewelry is not worn for a while, it must be cleaned in time and then stored. Some people never clean it after wearing it for many years, so that dust and oil stains accumulate in all corners of the jewelry, which seriously affects its brilliance. In fact, cleaning jewelry is not difficult. Take a bowl of warm water, add a few drops of neutral detergent to it, and then use cotton (or a small brush, such as the old brush) dipped in water to gently wipe the jewelry, and after the dirt is washed off, the jewelry Rinse in another bowl of clean water - next. Then put it in a ventilated place to dry, and the jewelry can return to its bright original appearance.
For necklaces, earrings, pendants and other places with switches or spring devices, they should also be cleaned and lubricated in time to keep them clean and flexible.
4. After the jewelry is processed, put it in the jewelry box for preservation. When placing, it is advisable to place the gemstone upwards and avoid contact with other objects. If you don't have a jewelry box, wrap it in a soft, clean cloth for storage. Here's another reminder, don't put multiple jewelry together in a box, and don't wrap multiple jewelry with a soft cloth, so as to avoid mutual wear between the jewelry.
