Cleaning Techniques: Sparkling Solutions

Regular cleaning is key to keeping your jewelry looking its best. Different materials require specific cleaning methods. For gold and silver pieces, a gentle jewelry cleaner or mild soapy water can work wonders. Use a soft-bristle brush or a toothbrush to remove dirt and grime from hard-to-reach areas. Gemstones can be cleaned with a soft cloth or a brush and warm, soapy water. However, delicate gemstones may require professional cleaning. At Made by Mary, we offer cleaning guidelines specific to each jewelry type to help you maintain their beauty effortlessly.


Storage Tips: A Safe Haven for Your Treasures

Proper storage is crucial to prevent scratches, tangling, and damage to your jewelry. Consider storing each piece separately in a soft pouch or a lined jewelry box to prevent them from rubbing against each other. For delicate chains, use a necklace organizer to avoid tangles. Keep your jewelry away from direct sunlight, extreme temperatures, and harsh chemicals that can cause discoloration or damage. Taking the time to store your jewelry properly will help preserve its shine and protect it for years to come.


Regular Maintenance: Show Your Jewelry Some Love

Give your jewelry some regular TLC to keep it looking its best. Avoid wearing your jewelry while swimming, exercising, or doing household chores to minimize exposure to chemicals and abrasions. It's also a good practice to remove your jewelry before applying lotions, perfumes, or hairsprays to prevent buildup and potential damage. If you notice any loose stones, clasps, or other issues, it's best to have your jewelry professionally inspected and repaired by a trusted jeweler.


Travel Tips: On-The-Go Care

When traveling with your jewelry, take extra precautions to ensure its safety. Store pieces in a designated travel jewelry case with separate compartments to prevent tangling and scratching. Pack your jewelry in your carry-on bag to keep it close and secure during your journey. Avoid leaving your jewelry unattended in hotel rooms or other public spaces. With these travel tips, you can enjoy your favorite jewelry pieces wherever your adventures take you.
