Jewelry Care

To keep your jewelry looking its best and ensure it lasts, consider these simple care tips:

  1. General Care for All Jewelry
  • Clean with Care: Use a soft cloth or a gentle jewelry cleaner to wipe away dirt and oils. Your jewelry will shine with just a little love.
  • Storage Wisdom: Safely store your jewelry in a cool, dry place, away from sunlight. Individual compartments or pouches will prevent tangles and scratches.
  • Handle with Care: Before vigorous activities or exposure to chemicals, remove your jewelry to protect it from damage.
  1. Care for Oxidized Silver Jewelry

For that beautiful darkened look:

  • Gentle Cleaning: Use a soft cloth. Abrasives and chemicals may strip away its unique charm.
  • Dry and Dark: Oxidized silver doesn't like moisture, so avoid exposure to water.
  1. Care for Precious and Semiprecious Gemstones

Each gemstone has its own quirks:

  • Delicate Cleaning: A soft, damp cloth does wonders. Tougher stains? Try a mild soap and water mix. Say no to harsh chemicals.
  • Temperature Caution: Protect gemstones from extreme temperature changes to avoid cracks or discoloration.
  • Regular Check-up: Give your jewelry a once-over. Loose stones? Bring them in to Green Lake Jewelry Works or to your local trusted jeweler for regular check & clean. For bead or pearl jewelry, consider restringing every few years.
