An Easy Guide to Taking Care of Your Jewelry Properly

There is no doubt that we love our jewelry. In fact, the global jewelry industry is expected to grow to over $266 billion by 2027. Whether it is a watch, some earrings, a ring or a necklace, there is a good chance there is at least once piece of jewelry you wear often.

If you want to keep this jewelry in top shape for as long as possible, you need to care for it well. Many companies will ship their jewelry in high-quality packaging, like what is offered at, but once it reaches you, it is up to you to ensure your jewelry looks great for years to come.

In an effort to help, this blog post is going to go over some easy tips to care for your jewelry the right way.

Consider Jewelry Insurance

No matter how much you care for your jewelry and be careful with it, accidents can always happen. It can be dropped, lost, stolen or damaged in some other way. As a result, it is a good idea to have jewelry insurance. This can be an affordable way to protect your jewelry in case something bad happens.

By having this insurance, it gives you the peace of mind knowing that if anything were to happen to your jewelry, it would be covered. Now, this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be careful and treat your jewelry well, but it is good to have just in case.

Store Them Properly


While we all know to wear our jewelry properly and be mindful of it, you also need to store it carefully. It should never be tossed onto a table or thrown into a drawer or dresser. These could both lead to scratches, chips and other types of damage to the jewelry.

When it comes to storing your jewelry, you want to do it in a place that is well padded and one where the jewelry won’t easily fall. If your jewelry came in a nice box or pouch when you bought it, storing it there is often a good idea. If you are traveling with your jewelry, always be careful with how and where you pack it up.

Know the Beauty Products You Use

Another thing to keep in mind when it comes to caring well for your jewelry is to know the beauty and skincare products that you use. Many products include a variety of harsh chemicals and ingredients that could hurt the longevity and appearance of your jewelry. While not all ingredients and chemicals will harm pieces, some certainly will.

Also, in general, people should put their jewelry on last and take it off first. If you put it on before applying makeup, sunscreen or other products, there is a higher chance they could get on the jewelry and potentially damage it.

Clean Them Carefully

A big part of caring for your jewelry is cleaning it. Dust, dirt and other debris can find its way onto your jewelry, which can hurt how it looks and potentially even damage the gems or metals. Every so often, be sure to take some time and thoroughly clean your jewelry.

The exact method will generally depend on what type of jewelry you are attempting to clean. In most cases, using cleaning wipes, soft brushes and towels, a bit of water and potentially some polish can help your jewelry look great. Whatever method is applicable for you, be sure to do things gently and carefully as not to damage the jewelry.

If you want to keep your jewelry looking its best, you need to do all you can to care for it well. We hope the tips included in this guide have been able to help you do just that.
