Imagine, you found the vintage ring of your dreams. Then we understand that you'd like to enjoy that, well, forever. Every piece of jewellery has its own story and deserve the right treatment and care. Therefore, we asked our goldsmith his tips to maintain your item in perfect condition.
The enjoyment of your piece stands or falls with its quality. Now we can assure you, our collection of original vintage jewellery is of premium quality, since we only select the best pieces and skilfully restore them in their original state. With the right care, you will keep that glow forever.
In this article you'll learn everything about the cleaning of jewellery in general, taking care of gold and silver, and how to handle gemstones and pearls. Even though the most practical care is preventive: to avoid scratches and marks it is necessary to wear your pieces consciously. Are you planning to dig your garden or clean the bathroom thoroughly? Then wear gloves or simply take off you jewellery. That goes on for all sorts of intensive work. Silver, gold and gemstones don't like chemicals, or sweat. So don't wear jewellery whilst working out either. Just let them peacefully rest in a velvet box while you finish your run.
In addition, be mindful of cosmetics. You'd apply bodylotion and perfumes rather before adding jewellery then after. Don't spray your pendant or bracelet. Pamper your skin first and then let your jewellery shine on it.
Speaking of skin, the chance for discoloration is closely linked to skin. If and how a piece discolors, is actually something quite personal. That is because, discoloration depends of - among other things - the pH value and oxidation of ones skin. So a silver friendship ring discoloring faster on you than on your friends hand does not say anything about the quality of that ring, but on how it respons to your skin. Luckily, discoloration is a perfectly natural thing and easy to fix.
Are you still doubting which method applies to your piece of jewellery? Then don't hesitate to contact us and/or come by to let our skilfull goldsmiths do the job. This way you are sure your items are being taken care of the best way. And finally, wear you items with love and care!
