You clean your floors. You wash your dishes. You wash your face and hair.
You wash your clothing. But all too often, many forget about the importance of cleaning one thing - their jewelry! If this sounds familiar, we seek to remind you that it’s not just the jewelry itself that makes the statement, it's also how well you maintain it. When your luxury jewelry is flawlessly clean with a dreamy gleam, it shows. And when it's...not? That shows, too. One good clean is all it should taken take to show you the transformation that can take place when you properly clean your jewelry. So take care of your adornments! Show everyone that your fine jewelry is a possession you cherish. If you've invested in something as precious as luxury jewelry, it only makes sense to keep your collection sparkling, and that means keeping your jewelry clean as a whistle.
Cloudiness and dullness, accumulated dirt all add up to your luxury jewels becoming lacklustre, and nobody wants that! In general, jewelry worn on the daily should be cleansed weekly to keep it looking its spectacular best, and special occasion jewelry worn infrequently can get away with a deep clean once or twice a year. While you could leave the job up to a professional (most jewelers offer the service), there are a ton of great products on the market these days that enable more than sufficient DIY cleaning. Between high tech ultrasonic cleaners, classic liquid cleaning solutions, wipes and cloths, there is something out there for everyone when it comes to cleaning luxury jewelry at home. We've rounded up the best jewelry cleaners for every type of luxury jewelry lover! Which will you choose when it's time to clean your Cartier and Chanel?
