Jewelry Care Instructions
Sajewell wasn't lying when making sure that Titanium jewelry is Long-lasting & Waterproof, Tarnish-resistant & Hypoallergenic. Unlike silver, gemstones & other metals; Titanium doesn't lose its shine or eventually tarnish. But why does it still happen to your jewelry?
One of the biggest causes of Titanium jewelry's tarnish is a collision. When jewelry hits surfaces many times, it loses its finishing (jewelry finishing is a term that is used to loosely define the processes that add the final touches to a piece of jewelry) & begins to tarnish. Be sure to prevent this at all costs & always protect jewelry when it isn't in use.
Following 6 daily jewelry care best practices below can preserve the life of your jewelry & keep it looking great for many years:
1. Store separately in an air-tight box
It's best to keep your jewelry in a fabric-lined case that has compartments & dividers for your jewelry. If you don't have a jewelry case, make sure to wrap each piece of jewelry in a soft tissue or paper before placing it in a drawer. These two ways will prevent scratching & tangling also.
2. Clean gently with a polishing cloth
A polishing cloth contains a polishing surface on one side & a buffing one on the other. It doesn't only bring back the natural luster & shine of jewelry; but also cuts down on costly cleaning chemicals. Click to see tips to use a jewelry polishing cloth.
3. Apply a thin coat of clear nail polish
Clear nail polish is your friend. You can use clear nail polish to prevent discoloration & chips on jewelry by applying a thin coat of clear nail polish as protection. This will keep your less expensive jewelry in tip-top shape!
4. Keep away from water
Water is the worst enemy of jewelry. Even for durable jewelry materials like gold, silver, or titanium..., it would be fine when it comes to some times; but keeping them wet is practically asking your jewelry to tarnish. How about bringing a small pouch to store it in while you get into water-related activities?
5. Avoid perfume, lotions, other chemicals...
Hairspray, lotion & perfume... can be damaging to certain types of metals & colored gems. Precious metals like gold, silver & platinum are especially susceptible to discoloration from these everyday care products. Remember, your jewelry should be the last thing you put on & the first thing you take off.
6. Remove when bathing, exercising, sleeping,...
Bathing, exercising, sleeping,... with your jewelry on not only can cause tarnish due to water & sweat but also cause bacterial build-up.
