How to Keep Your Jewelery Looking New

When you first buy a piece of jewelery, whether it be a costume necklace or a precious gold ring, it's always bright with any stones untarnished and sparkling. But how do you keep it that way?

Well if you follow these top tips, your jewelery will stay beautiful:

Store your jewelery pieces apart so they do not get tangled- we love silk jewelery wraps for their functionality and touch of boudoir glamour.

Make sure your costume jewelery avoids contact with abrasive chemicals such as nail varnish, perfume and hairspray, as these can cause it to quickly tarnish or become discolored.

Keep any pieces with precious or semi-precious stones way from direct sunlight to avoid fading. Nothing ruins a piece of jewelry like faded stones that were once bright and beautiful.

To keep pearls scratch free make sure you wear them alone, as other materials such as silver or enamel can damage a pearls fine make up.

A nice tip for removing dust from pieces is to gently blow it away using a hairdryer on a cool setting, or a soft lint free cloth always brightens jewelery up.

Examine your jewelery pieces regularly to make sure settings are holding stones in place tightly and clasps are joining properly.

Never clean your silver jewelery with abrasive or harsh cleaners, simple water is enough to make it shine again, and does not damage your jewelery.

This probably all looks obvious, but were all guilty of sometimes neglecting our beautiful jewelery; I know my friends and I definitely are!
