How to care for your jewelry and semi-jewelry
Before you realize that they are darkened or dirty, care makes the pieces last a lot longer. Some actions make all the difference in these hours, like for example:
- When going to the beach, choose those pieces that do not have many metallic parts. Direct contact with the salty water and saline sand of the beach can oxidize your bijou or semi-jewel and leave it darkened. Bracelets with beads and pendants with wood pendants , for example, is a great and charming option for that moment.
- In addition to sea water, other types of liquids also detract from the durability and appearance of your jewelry.Avoid, for example, passing perfume in the area where the jewelry will stay; Also take them out when you need to bathe and when you need to handle chemicals.
- Have a purse or purse – preferably velvet – to store all your bijou and semi-jewels. The friction between them also darkens, scratches and ages your parts more quickly. If you can not place them in separate containers, you can arrange them in drawers or boxes with dividers.
- Also avoid leaving your stored parts in places with high humidity and very clear. The best environment is that in low light and dry.
