Jewelry is an investment. When you choose to spend a fair amount of money on a piece of jewelry, you’re making a subconscious statement to yourself, promising to care for, maintain, and repair it in the way that it needs. Part of the responsibility of owning fine jewelry is knowing how to take care of it. Just like you wouldn’t invest in a nice car and fail to take care of it routinely, you wouldn’t make a big jewelry purchase and choose not to be mindful and responsible with it.

Black Hills Gold jewelry is exquisite, unique, and stunningly beautiful. This is the type of jewelry that people on the street will stop to ask you about. This jewelry is what you want to give your significant other, sister, or mother for their birthday, on Mother’s Day, or for Christmas. This jewelry makes a statement.

That’s why it’s imperative that Black Hills Gold jewelry owners know how to properly maintain and care for their pieces in order to keep their treasured item, whether that be a bracelet, necklace, a pair of earrings, or even a watch, in pristine condition for years to come. What is the point of investing in jewelry that will stop sparkling and shining due to poor care?

This is similar to going to the doctor or taking your car into the shop regularly. By cleaning your jewelry or watch often, you’ll be ensuring that everything is as it should be, there isn’t bacteria growing in and around it, and that the piece lasts for years to come.

While there are some situations where you’ll have no choice but to bring your watch or jewelry into the shop to be worked on, there are some steps you can take on your own to ensure that your beautiful jewelry stays in excellent condition for years and years.

Keep Your Jewelry And/Or Watch Away From Harsh Chemicals

While this seems like common sense, it’s very important to note. Harsh chemicals, like bleach or ammonia, can harm the metals and gemstones on your piece of jewelry. If you are cleaning your kitchen, bathroom, or house in general, be sure to take off your jewelry and/or watch. Place it in a safe spot, out of range of any cleaning chemicals you’re handling. It’s also important to note that non-cleaning chemicals, like hairspray, lotions, and even perfumes, can negatively impact the health of your jewelry if it comes in contact. It’s best practice to put on your jewelry after you have gotten ready, after your lotion, perfume, and hairspray has been applied. Your jewelry and watches will thank you.

Store Your Jewelry And Watches In A Safe Place

After making the purchase of a gorgeous pendant, bracelet, watch, or a pair of earrings, the last thing you’re going to do is throw it into a cluttered drawer and call it storage. You’ll be compelled to take extra care of your new purchase, making sure it stays out of the way of any items that could potentially harm it. This is an incredibly important step in ensuring the quality of your jewelry and watches. Never throw diamond, gemstone, or pearl jewelry into a cluttered space, and yes, that includes your Black Hills Gold jewelry. Rather, keep your piece in the padded jewelry box that it most likely came with. Or purchase jewelry storage yourself. This way, the chance of the gemstones or diamonds on your jewelry and watch getting scratched decreases. When you store your jewelry in a jewelry box, there will be proper padded areas to gently place your necklaces, your bracelets, your earrings, and your rings. This will keep them safe and clean, and it will provide you with peace of mind.
