TAKING CARE OF JEWLRY IN THE HEAT OF SUMMER

If you are going outdoor in the summer, whatever you want to you better your most
treasured jewelry safely at home or in the hotel. Not only you can lose your accessories and
jewelry pieces in this type of situations and activities, the sweat of our skin usually affects its
quality and condition, since many materials tend to oxidize more quickly and even begin to
blacken. Therefore, better safe than sorry! In this article, an expert from a caring jewelry
manufacturer will tell you what’s the best way to take care of your precious jewelry during
the heat of summer.

BE CAUTIOUS CREAMS AND SUNSCREEN

Before applying you any cream or oil (either your sunscreen or your usual
moisturizer), it is best to take off all the jewelry (and keep this in mind throughout the year).
Then, wait to put them on again until your skin dries and stops being oily.

TAKING CARE OF SPECIFIC MATERIALS

Silver, gems and stones, enamel, and even gold, although it has higher resistance, all
the natural materials in jewelry pieces require some care and adequate cleaning to preserve
their conservation and quality, as well as maintain the brightness and beauty of the first day.
However, it is essential to take into account some peculiarities and differences
according to the material of which your jewel is composed:

Pearls

They are stones that contain water, so this, at high temperatures, is susceptible to
evaporation. A good idea may be to moisten them with a cloth from time to time to preserve
their level of hydration. Do not use soaps with this type of stones.

Yellow gold

The jewels made in 18-carat gold are very resistant pieces that withstand almost all
conditions, since it is a stable and robust material that resists high temperatures, corrosion or
oxidation very well. Be especially careful if the pieces are ancient, sensitive, or delicate.

White gold

Special mention deserves white gold since the jewels made of this material usually
have a rhodium plating to highlight its brightness and color. In this case, sweat, salt, or
chlorine can affect your jewelry negatively.

Diamonds

They are a very resistant material, so, in principle, the sun, sweat, saltpeter, or
chlorine should not affect you excessively. However, it is essential to be very careful with

impact, since they are stones that, although they stand out for their hardness, can be broken
the massive impact.

Silver

It is a noble metal like gold, but much softer and more delicate. In addition, it is
proven by many jewelry manufacturers that depending on the person, and the type of sweat,
the jewels of this material act differently at the time of rusting or darkening. Be very careful
also with the rubbing of the sand.
With these simple and practice as recommended by a jewelry manufacturer, your
jewels will be ready to return from holidays without damaging your precious jewelry.
