Care of bijouterie | Tips from Silvers.


The mate­r­i­al from which jew­el­ry is made is prone to wear, dark­en­ing, oxi­da­tion and the for­ma­tion of scratch­es. Read and apply our jew­el­ry care tips — and your jew­el­ry acces­sories will keep their shine and good appear­ance for many years.

How to care for jewelry

Jew­el­ry made of any alloy dete­ri­o­rates as a result of con­tact with chem­i­cals used in the house­hold. There­fore, it is rec­om­mend­ed to remove them before doing house­work, as well as before swim­ming in the bath, pool or on the beach. Espe­cial­ly avoid con­tact with water of prod­ucts with Swarovs­ki crys­tals, mar­c­a­site, zir­con, wood­en, leather and tex­tile ele­ments (straps and cords).

Get­ting jew­el­ry wet can cause stones to fall out and damage/discoloration of ele­ments that can­not be repaired or restored.

Avoid direct con­tact between jew­el­ry and cos­met­ics. It is dan­ger­ous for min­er­als of nat­ur­al ori­gin, such as:

  • Amber,

  • weapon

  • pearls,

  • emer­ald.

Chem­i­cal sub­stances con­tained in cos­met­ics — hair­spray, per­fumes, lotions — can lead to fad­ing and remove the shine from the sur­face of met­al and stone. Cos­met­ics should always be used before wear­ing jew­el­ry.

Dec­o­ra­tive stones — both nat­ur­al and syn­thet­ic — are quite frag­ile and prone to falling out, crack­ing and chip­ping as a result of impact.

Jew­el­ry with stone and leather inserts should always be removed before going to bed, doing house­work, play­ing sports, and oth­er activ­i­ties that may dam­age them.

in order for jew­el­ry to remain in its orig­i­nal form as long as pos­si­ble, espe­cial­ly mat­te prod­ucts or with coat­ings (gold-plat­ed, rhodi­um-plat­ed, pati­nat­ed), sit­u­a­tions that cause mechan­i­cal abra­sion of the sur­face should be avoid­ed.

chains and jew­el­ry threads are very sen­si­tive to kinks, so they should always be removed before going to bed. They should not be bent or rolled too tight­ly, as this can lead to tears. All thin and del­i­cate chains must be stored sep­a­rate­ly from oth­er jew­el­ry so that they do not get tan­gled and do not break.

Each piece of jew­el­ry should be placed in a thong bag to pre­vent dam­age.

It is best if each item is in a box, in a sep­a­rate com­part­ment, cov­ered with a soft fab­ric that pro­tects the jew­el­ry from scratch­es.

For clean­ing and pol­ish­ing jew­el­ry, we rec­om­mend using jew­el­ry wipes sat­u­rat­ed with a prod­uct that per­fect­ly removes plaque and pol­ish­es the sur­face. This is the most con­ve­nient, fast and easy way to care for jew­el­ry made of med­ical gold, jew­el­ry and jew­el­ry met­al alloys. Also, jew­el­ry can be immersed for a few sec­onds in a warm soapy solu­tion. After that, they should be thor­ough­ly washed under run­ning water.

How to care for gold jewelry

The high­er the index of non-pre­cious met­als in the alloy, the more they are prone to oxi­da­tion and dark­en­ing of the sur­face.

Prod­ucts made from low-qual­i­ty gold sam­ples (333 and 375 — 8 and 9 carats) are most prone to the oxi­da­tion process due to the low con­tent of gold in the alloy. The oxi­da­tion process is accel­er­at­ed by con­tact with chlo­rine, sul­fur con­tained in heal­ing water or warm springs, salt water and some med­ical prepa­ra­tions. It hap­pens faster if the acces­sories are con­stant­ly exposed to light, mois­ture and air. This can be slowed down by stor­ing unused jew­el­ry in cas­es, box­es, or tight­ly sealed pack­ag­ing.

Jew­el­ry ele­ments made of leather and tex­tile mate­ri­als (straps and cords) are prone to wear and tear, can stretch and dis­col­or over time.

Prod­ucts made of pre­cious met­als with open­work ele­ments require spe­cial care. They are deformed and destroyed as a result of pres­sure, com­pres­sion or impact.

In this case, the care of such jew­el­ry should be car­ried out with the help of spe­cial tools that can be pur­chased in jew­el­ry stores. You should always read the instruc­tions, which indi­cate the types of prod­ucts and met­als that this prod­uct is intend­ed for clean­ing, and the cor­rect way of using it.

Spe­cial care should be tak­en when clean­ing rings, ear­rings and pen­dants with stones, leather, wood or tex­tile ele­ments and coat­ings (rhodi­um, gild­ing, elec­tro­plat­ing). Regard­ing the care of such jew­el­ry, it is best to con­sult a jew­el­ry work­shop.

It is unde­sir­able to clean jew­el­ry made of med­ical alloy with tooth­paste or soda, as it can remove the top coat­ing and cause tar­nish­ing or per­ma­nent dis­col­oration of the sur­face.

Now you know how to prop­er­ly care for jew­el­ry, keep it in its orig­i­nal form and extend its wear­ing life. Thanks to these rec­om­men­da­tions, you can afford to buy more inex­pen­sive acces­sories in the Sil­vers online store, which will always look like they were just pur­chased.
