Every day, thousands of people buy bracelets, bracelet charms, earrings, chains and Pandora rings. Women and young girls use these jewelry every day, both in everyday life and in addition to their image for festive events. Like all jewelry, Pandora jewelry needs care. And this must be understood if We want Our products to always look new, shiny and spectacular. The care itself must be correct and thorough, because, as we know, Pandora jewelry is made from 925 sterling silver, and Pandora Rose from a unique jewelry alloy. The Pandora Shine collection is plated with 18 carat gold plating, which makes these pieces of jewelery a richer yellow color.
How to properly care for jewelry and prevent them from getting dark? The answers to these questions follow!
Pandora is everyday jewelry
For starters, you need to understand that any silver in use darkens. This is evidenced by the presence of copper in the silver alloy. The chemical composition of the air, humidity, cosmetic preparations, skin characteristics, all this can cause silver to darken. When in contact with chemicals, hairspray, perfumes, chlorine, this process is greatly accelerated. Darkening of silver is not a manufacturing defect, but simply the result of its daily use. In order to keep your Pandora in an unsurpassed form for a long time, you need to know a few rules and not take care of it like ordinary silver.
How to protect jewelry from darkening and scratches?
When doing housework, using cosmetics and detergents, it is better to remove silver jewelry. It is recommended to remove jewelry when visiting the pool, sauna or playing sports. Do not allow the interaction of jewelry from lotions, creams and perfumes. Try not to get water on the products, because the oxidation process takes place and the sooner you start to follow this, the sooner your jewelry will remain new and will not lose its appearance.
Sometimes, decorations need to be given time to “rest”. Store your jewelry in bags offered by Pandora. Pandora Rose is best stored in white bags.
As you may have noticed, the Pandora boxes that come as a gift with the purchase of products are not airtight. They do not contain dense decorations, so it is advisable to store them separately so that they cannot touch each other. This way you will avoid unwanted scratches on the products. You can, of course, store it in a box, far apart, if you are not going to transport it.
How to clean Pandora jewelry?
Regular buffing will help avoid dark spots and keep the silver’s magical luster, however, it cannot remove any scratches. For polishing, use the special Pandora polishing cloth offered by Fragola. If there is no such napkin or you have not yet purchased it, you can use a fabric, but without lint, which is suitable for all Pandora products. Light friction of jewelry with such a cloth will lead to polishing of the products, it will give them an initial shine, but it will not succeed in removing significant stains.
One of the safest ways to clean Pandora jewelry is to use warm water and liquid, non-aggressive soap. Pour some warm water into the vessel, fill it with liquid soap and dip the jewelry into it. After that, rinse them in warm water and wipe with a dry cloth. If your jewelry is too dirty, soak it in a soapy solution for up to 10 minutes, rub it with a dry, non-hard brush, which you can purchase in the Pandora care kit, which includes both black and white polishing wipes, and wipe the jewelry dry. Thus, you will eliminate pollution as much as possible. However, I advise you not to particularly rub the jewelry with a brush. This cleaning process should be carried out carefully and not for a long time, so as not to damage the top layer of the products. I do not recommend using special silver cleaners and ultrasonic cleaners, toothpaste, soda and other products, they can also damage the oxidized parts of Pandora jewelry. Use only liquid, non-aggressive soap!
For daily cleaning of both silver Pandora bracelets and leather bracelets, use a white polishing cloth. Silicone insert jewelry (including Charms from the ESSENCE collection) should not be exposed to silver polishing liquids and temperature extremes, which can soften the silicone parts and weaken their adhesion to the bracelet. To clean, use a combination of warm soapy water and a soft brush, then rinse thoroughly with clean water. PANDORA enamel is made without the addition of glass, making it more durable. It is recommended to clean in warm soapy water with a soft brush or simply use a white polishing cloth. If we talk about glass, for daily care it is enough to wipe the products with a white polishing cloth. Use warm water and liquid soap to clean, then wipe with a soft cloth. If the glass begins to tarnish, it is enough to treat it with mineral oil using a lint-free cloth and wipe it gently with a clean cloth. Polishing cloth containing a chemical solution is only suitable for processing metal surfaces.
