How do i take care of my permanent jewelry

Permanent jewelry isn't just an accessory; it is most likely a custom fit 14 karat solid gold, gold-filled, or cherished .925 sterling silver creation that encapsulates an experience, probably with a loved one. The beauty of permanent jewelry is that it’s so low maintenance and requires little care. However, for clients looking to extend the life of their special memory or give it a good shine, I’ve got some golden tips for you to pass on! Educated clients are happy clients!

Easy Clean - The Foundation of Maintenance:

While clients might expect to hear they must remove fine jewelry for cleaning or clean it regularly, luckily this is not the case for permanent jewelry. For everyday wear high-quality jewelry, a simple cleaning regime can make a world of difference. Keep your jewelry free of deodorants, perfume, and chemicals with a few drops of mild dish soap or skin-safe jewelry cleaner and warm water. For tough-to-reach crevices between tightly linked styles such as the rolo chain or inside a tiny jump ring, using a soft-bristled brush to carefully dislodge any accumulated dirt or residue works wonderfully. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry with a soft cloth.

Polishing for Perfection:

I give my clients branded jewelry polishing cloths. This enhances the client experience and serves a functional purpose. These specialized cloths are designed to remove debris, tarnish, and restore brilliance without causing damage.

Permanent Jewelry is Durable but Not Indestructible:

Whether it's a custom-fit sterling silver gold-filled or from 14k gold piece, ensuring clients avoid exposing their jewelry to harsh chemicals or abrasive surfaces is key to longevity. Clients can swim or enjoy the ocean with permanent jewelry, but each piece should be rinsed well with fresh water after exposure to chlorine/salt water. 

Lost Jewelry Woes - Prevention and Solutions:

The heartbreak of losing a cherished piece of jewelry is something everyone dreads. To minimize the risk, the integrity of jump rings and links regularly checked. If any signs of wear or weakness beyond regular wear and tear appear, encourage clients to book an appointment for repair.

Whether it's sterling silver, solid gold, or gold-filled jewelry, each piece of jewelry tells a story that deserves to be preserved.

In essence, the journey of permanent jewelry is not just about the pieces themselves but the stories they carry. Empower your clients to become the custodians of their cherished memories, ensuring that the brilliance and sentimentality of their permanent jewelry endure for generations.
