A few drops of Dawn dish detergent in warm, not hot, water makes the best homemade jewelry cleaning solution. Allow the piece to soak for a few minutes, or longer if it's really dirty, before gently scrubbing with a new toothbrush. Place the object in a container of tepid water to rinse. You can use a paper towel or a regular cloth to dry the piece as long as you don't snag the prongs on the fibers.
*You may clean your Monaco Chain or any of your gold chains in the same way but no need to use a toothbrush.
How often should I clean my Jewelry?
When it comes to a jewelry cleaning routine, how often you wear your piece must be taken into account. Cleaning high-wear items, such as an engagement ring, should be done once a week or every two weeks. Because diamonds are subjected to everyday hand washing and lotion, they can easily get dull. Other pieces, aside from diamonds, can be cleaned when they become foggy and require a boost of luster.
How to take care of my Jewelry?
Other than keeping your jewelry clean, there are a few other things you can do to keep it in good condition.
Take off your rings when you are washing your hands, applying skincare products, using home cleaning solutions, handling lotion, and so on. These objects have the potential to add dirt that is difficult to reach.
Silver should be kept in an anti-tarnish bag.
When swimming, avoid wearing Silver jewelry.
Have your more valuable pieces inspected by a qualified jeweler on a regular basis. They can ensure the safety of the stones and their settings.
*Monaco Chains are extremely strong and durable and for everyday use, however, they can get scratched like any other gold metal does. Gold does get scratched over time depending on the wear and tear. You can have it polished every few years at any independent gold polisher.
