HOW TO PROTECT YOUR JEWELRY FROM
HARSH SUMMER ELEMENTS
✔️ Pay attention to the temperature of your jewelry when you're at the beach. Hold jewelry in your hands; if a piece heats up quickly in the sunlight and gets too warm to touch comfortably, it's time to put it away for safekeeping. The same goes for wearing a ring or earrings that cause an unpleasant burning sensation on your skin.
✔️ Jewelry is sensitive to temperature changes; so it is best to store jewelry in a dry, well-ventilated place out of direct sunlight with a constant temperature. The sun's UV rays can cause the jewelry to age and weather faster or even melt or warp the metal.
Sea salt, table salt, and Epsom salt are just a few examples of the types of salt that can cause damage to jewelry. These crystals can etch metals and gems, making them appear duller than before. The good news is that you can clean and polish your jewelry to remove the effects of salt. But it's best to avoid exposure to salt in the first place.
Chlorine can cause a number of problems for your jewelry. When metals come into contact with chlorine, the element will actually start to eat away at the metal, causing it to weaken and potentially break. In addition, chlorine can also cause metals to change color or lose their luster.
Summertime is a great opportunity to show off your personality with some fun beach jewelry. But it's important to take care of your jewelry so it continues to look its best. To avoid damage, be sure to keep it away from harsh chemicals and abrasive materials. With a little bit of care, you can enjoy your summer jewelry for many seasons to come!
