How to Polish Your Jewelry7:00 AM
Going to get your fine jewelry cleaned is not a top priority in many people's everyday life. Myself personally, I always have thought that if you have a jewelry cleaner at home and you can just dunk your jewelry in that, I'm good to go. There are proper ways to get your jewelry clean at home that will give your jewelry that fresh out of jewelry store look. Let's get into it!!!
Make it shine.
Gold, silver, platinum, and most gemstones can be swished around in a cup of hot water mixed with a tablespoon of ammonia to bring back its sparkle. It does the same thing as bottled jewelry cleansers and is often less harsh.
You don't want to treat porous stones, like opals, pearls, and turquoise, with any chemicals whatsoever. It's safer to wipe them with a soft, damp cloth and a dab of mild dish soap. Buff the surrounding metal with a polishing cloth. Hair spray, perfume, household cleaners, and chlorine can damage jewelry over time. Put your jewelry on after your perfume.
Don't get hung up.
To prevent necklaces from getting tangled, wrap the chain around an empty spool or business card and secure it with a bit of scotch tape on the back. If a chain ever gets knotted, don't try to undo it while dangling it in front of you; gravity will only make the snarl tighter. Put the necklace on a table and use a needle to loosen the kink.
