Handmade Jewellery is considered to be truly elegant in every sense and enhances the appeal of the wearer. This is simply because every piece of jewellery is unique and should be considered to be a good investment when you buy it and bring you profit if the need arises to sell it off. In the meanwhile, it is quite important that you take good care of your handcrafted jewellery. Here are some tips to do it.
Clean your jewellery carefully and regularly
Any piece of jewellery you own must be looked after with great care. This is relevant even more in the case of handcrafted jewellery. The first thing to do would be to check with your jeweller regarding cleaners that can be used for your jewellery. A bad cleaner can cause the jewellery to lose its shine. In some cases, it may also happen that the cleaner could get absorbed in the pores of the metal setting. Hence, cleaners for jewellery must be purchased and used with care.
Store your jewellery properly
It is important not just to use your handcrafted jewellery such as necklaces or bracelets carefully but also store them appropriately or put them away when not in use. Buying a good jewellery box can be an excellent thing to do. Keeping your jewellery in a jewellery box can prevent scratches and dirt from accumulating on your jewellery. Silver jewellery tends to turn black if exposed to open air over a long period of time. Storing them in separate compartments and away from other pieces of jewellery is recommended. You should use jewellery pouches for storing jewellery when you travel and airtight plastic bags when jewellery pouches are not available.
Taking care of your jewellery
Your jewellery may go with you when you visit the spa, the swimming pool or at an event or outing. It is extremely important that you do not expose your handcrafted jewellery to extreme sunlight, harsh chemicals and saltwater. Doing certain types of activities can cause physical damage to your jewellery. Hence, you must remember not to wear your handmade jewellery on occasions that can cause jewellery, metal settings or gemstones to break.
