Beaded Jewelry - Jewelry Care

Proper jewelry care is very important to the longevity of any piece of jewelry, but most important to handcrafted pieces. Different gemstones have different care needs due to their hardness, but all should be kept in a clean, lint free environment and should be laid flat. Sterling silver and gold should be kept with a tarnish strip or within anti-tarnish paper or, for a frugal alternative, individually packed in a sealed plastic bag.

If your jewelry does get dirty, it should never be cleaned with anything harsher than soap and water and a soft toothbrush. But for the high-tech people out there, an Ultra-sonic Jewelry Cleaner can be used for most jewelry. Special care should be taken with opals and pearls due to their low number on the Moh's Hardness Scale. Soft gemstones should never be placed an Ultra-sonic jewelry cleaner.

Sterling silver and gold pieces can be polished with either a soft, lint-free cloth or a ready-made polishing cloth.
