How to care for your jewelry in summer

Keep That Sparkle Going All Summer Long - Tips To Protect Your Jewelry

We know summer is the perfect time to show off your gorgeous jewelry, and you should! To keep that possible, the expert team at Martin Binder has some tips to keep your treasured pieces glowing in that summer sun!

 

  1. Don’t wear your jewelry when applying sunscreen or sun lotion -- Though it is important to protect your skin, it is potentially damaging to your jewelry. These products can create an oily, filmy substance on top of your jewelry and dim their glow. Our advice is to adorn your jewelry after applying your sun protection of choice!
  2. Store your jewelry in a dry, clean place -- The crazy humidity we get on these long summer days can have lasting effects on the pieces we love. The best thing to do after a day of showing off your jewelry’s shimmer is to store it in a cool place for safekeeping. This way, you can continue to wear your jewelry the next summer, and the next, and the next…!
  3. Don’t wear your jewelry while swimming -- Whether it’s at the pool, the ocean, the lake, etc., to be on the safe side, you shouldn’t wear your jewelry in the water. Not only is there a risk of losing your piece in the water, but chlorine and salt water also have lasting effects on jewelry’s luster. 
  4. Lastly, after your summer wear, visit Martin Binder Jeweler and get a complimentary cleaning -- Even as you take all these precautions, it’s always good to brighten up your jewelry anyway! Contact us today about getting your jewelry cleaned.
