HOW SHOULD I TAKE CARE OF MY JEWELLERY?
When you see an advertising for jewellery that does not tarnished. We will be honest with you, unfortunately is all the lie. It is all about how you take care of your jewellery. And we are here to help you and guide you in Jewellery Care routine. Always store your jewellery pieces individually, preferably in your YOJ box or pouch so that they don’t rub together, scratch or tangle. Make sure to keep your chains fastened so they don’t become tangled.
Living in a humid environment?
Store your jewellery with a small packet of desiccant crystals to help reduce tarnishing. Your gold vermeil and silver jewellery should be kept in a dark, cool and dry place. With time and wear, sterling silver will naturally become oxidised and eventually tarnish. Storing silver jewellery in a sealed plastic bag or airtight box when it is not being worn will keep out the air that causes oxidation. The oxidation process is also slowed down by wearing your jewellery often. If however your jewellery is stored for long-periods of time, occasional cleaning is recommended to maintain shine and keep oxidation at bay. All our YOJ sterling silver jewellery is rhodium plated which protects the silver from exposure and helps reduce long-term tarnishing.
Your jewellery is particularly susceptible to damage from the effects of chemicals present in perfume, hairspray, make-up, nail polish remover, body oils, sun tan lotion and deodorant. Do not keep jewellery in direct sunlight as prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause many gemstones to fade and lose their colour.
Always store your jewellery pieces individually, preferably in your YOJ box or pouch so that they don’t rub together, scratch or tangle.
HOW SHOULD I CLEAN MY JEWELLERY?
Clean your jewellery carefully with a soft, non-abrasive and lint-free cloth or chamois; this helps maintain or bring back its shine. If necessary, you can use a mild washing up liquid with warm water and a soft toothbrush, then rinse with clean water and pat dry with a soft cloth. Avoid using ‘dip’ polish or abrasive jewellery cleaners as these contain harsh chemicals and can destroy your jewellery over time.
WHAT CAN DULL MY
Never swim or shower while wearing gold-plated or silver jewellery, and try to your remove rings when washing your hands. Chlorine, salt water and fresh water can damage precious metals and gemstones by dulling or eroding them. Gold and silver are particularly susceptible to damage from chlorine, which can permanently damage or discolour them. Soapy water when bathing and showering can also leave a thin film, which makes the metal seem dull.
