Hello the Auré team, the month of June has arrived, we are entering the summer vacation period with the program, sunbathing and swimming in the pool or in the sea.
But, how not to damage your jewelry in summer with chlorine, salt and the sun?
In this article, we give you 5 tips for properly maintaining your jewelry and preventing it from oxidizing.
THINGS TO KNOWBefore giving you 5 tips for properly maintaining your jewelry in the summer, we wanted to remind you of some things about jewelry in general.
- Whatever the material or the price of your jewel , it is quite normal for it to show signs of fatigue over time : small scratches, traces of oxidation, etc. Nevertheless, there are some tips to slow the first signs of aging.
- Whether your jewel is in 9 25 silver or gold , this does not mean that you should not pay attention to your jewellery. Even if the material used is of high quality, it is important to take care of your jewelry!
5 TIPS FOR MAINTAINING YOUR JEWELRY IN THE SUMMER
1- SHOULD WE REMOVE OUR JEWELS FROM THE POOL AND THE SEA?
- At the beach, the cold water could cause your bracelets or your rings to slip (we have all already found a piece of jewelry at the bottom of the water), it would be a shame to lose your favorite piece of jewelry. We advise you to remove them when going for a swim to avoid making your jewelry tarnished and brushed with sand.
Tips : Don't hesitate to take a small pouch in your beach or pool bag to put all your jewelery in before going for a swim. So you can find them easily and put them back later.
2 - REMOVE YOUR JEWELRY DURING CERTAIN ACTIVITIES
To avoid deforming your jewelry, it is also recommended that you remove your jewelry during certain activities. This is particularly the case for sports such as climbing or volleyball. The impact of the bullet on your ring could deform it, and even cause your diamonds to fall.
3 - PROPERLY STORE YOUR JEWELRY
In your suitcase, do not forget to bring with you a jewelry box or the case received with the jewel. This will allow you to store your jewelry neatly inside as soon as you need to remove them. A word of advice, in order to avoid friction between your jewellery, remember to space your jewelery well in your case or jewelery box. The ideal is to have a compartmentalized jewelry box with a dedicated space to the rings , to bracelets , to earrings or to necklaces .
4 - APPLY YOUR SUNSCREEN WITHOUT JEWELRYAt the beach, we all tend to apply our sunscreen while keeping our jewellery. Unfortunately, sunscreen contains chemicals that can damage your jewelry and make it duller. So, before putting on your sunscreen, we remove the jewelry!
5 - WELL CLEAN YOUR JEWELRY
After your return from vacation, take the opportunity to clean your jewelry. To do this, all you need is a little warm soapy water and ideally a small toothbrush with soft bristles (to avoid scratches). The toothbrush will allow you to reach small corners and remove all traces of dirt and dust.
Advice : I advise you to clean your jewelry once a month ideally. Other tips for maintaining jewelry are available on our website The Jewels of Aure .
