Spring is here and it’s time to shake off the winter blues! With Spring comes the popular saying “spring cleaning.” This means you can take advantage of the saying and get all of our current pieces of jewelry clean and ready to be worn! It’s important to give them some much-needed TLC to ensure all of your pieces look their best. Here are three different ways to get your jewelry ready for spring:
Over time, jewelry can become dull and lose its shine due to exposure to natural oils, sweat, and dirt. To bring back the sparkle, give your jewelry a deep clean using a specialized jewelry cleaner or a mixture of warm water and mild soap. Use a soft-bristled brush to gently scrub away any dirt or grime, being careful not to scratch delicate diamonds/gemstones. Rinse your jewelry thoroughly under running water and pat dry with a soft cloth.
If you’re uncomfortable cleaning your jewelry at home, bring it to Tobin – we have the capability to clean and polish your jewelry. We have access to specialized cleaning equipment and solutions that can remove even the toughest grime to leave your pieces looking brand new! Plus, we can inspect your jewelry for any signs of damage or wear and tear, and recommend any repairs or maintenance needed to keep it in top shape.
Proper storage is essential to keep your fine jewelry looking its best for years to come. Store your jewelry in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight, moisture, and heat. Avoid storing your pieces in a tangled mess, which can cause scratches and damage. Instead, use separate compartments or jewelry boxes to keep your pieces organized and easy to find. Consider using anti-tarnish strips or bags to prevent oxidation and keep your jewelry looking shiny and new.
Giving your fine jewelry extra attention can help it look its best and last longer. Whether you choose to clean your jewelry at home, bring it to us here at Tobin, or simply store it properly, these simple steps can make a big difference in the appearance and longevity of your favorite pieces!
