How to Clean and Maintain your Jewelry

How to Clean and Maintain your Jewelry

The next step in getting your jewelry organized is getting it clean and maintaining it. Taking care of your pieces will greatly increase the longevity of your pieces. See our best tips below:

Polishing your jewelry with a jewelry cloth can bring back the shine! (Use this one for solid brass only.)


​When wearing long necklaces, be careful of seat belts and carrying children. These activities can put a lot of strain on the pendant or chain.


​Roll bracelets over your hand. (See this demo). It's easy and will GREATLY increase the life of your stretch bracelets!

Brass Pieces

Make sure your piece is raw brass, because this tip will damage any finish or other metals. Polish brass using Brasso. If you have more sensitive skin, try 

Sparkle Bright.

A Few Maintenance Tips:

  • Keeping your jewelry dry and clean is the key by avoiding wearing your jewelry while swimming, showering, and working out. Always put your jewelry on last after you have applied your body lotion, make-up and perfumes. They can contain some chemicals that can potentially damage your jewelry.

  • Remove your jewelry before going to bed. When we sleep we sweat and our skin releases oils which can affect the finish of your jewelry, not to mention that you can snag your sheets or scratch your skin while you sleep. 

  • Avoid coating your jewelry with store bought products.  All of our pieces are made to be hypoallergenic and come with a protective coating. Adding nail polish or a coating you may find at a big box store will negate that and in addition can over time breakdown your jewelry more quickly. 

If any of these methods don't work, reach out to the designer. Trust me, they want you to love and wear their designs and will be more than happy to help you restore your piece!
