Jeulia Jewelry is an easy favorite of mine. It is beautiful, elegant, classy, and affordable. The pieces are mainly multi-purpose and can be worn on many occasions and for daily activities.
Like other jewelry brands, Jeulia pieces need good care to maintain their beauty and luster over time. You definitely want to be able to keep them as new as possible for as long as you have them.
There are many methods and techniques used to keep jewelry clean and new, but this article highlights cleaning methods that are specific to Jeulia jewelry. They will help you maintain your pieces for a long time with ease. Here goes.
How to clean Jeulia Jewelry
1. Buff it with a soft cloth
This is one of the easiest, and possibly quickest, methods of keeping different types of Jeulia jewelry clean.
It involves using a dry cloth to gently remove any specs of dust, food particles, or any other substances that may have lodged themselves in crevices inside the jewelry.
To avoid scratching the surface and ruining the quality of the pieces’ luster, be sure to use a cloth that is very soft.
Velvet may be one of the best materials for the job as it has the capacity to remove dirt, and it is also soft enough to make sure that the surface of the rings, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, or any other Jeulia pieces remains intact and without scratches.
The buffing method should be a routine practice that should be conducted every several days, especially for pieces that are worn very often such as rings, watches, and earrings.
2. Wash the jewelry with dish soap and a soft toothbrush
Jewelry often accumulates deposits of lotion, soap, and other body care products over time, especially if the pieces are worn many times. Buffing may not be able to get rid of the said products, so dish soap comes in good handy for this.
You are going to need hot water and a dollop of dish soap. To clean the jewelry, allow it to soak for a couple of minutes, then use your toothbrush to scrub it clean.
Be sure to use a soft toothbrush that will not leave scratches or dislodge small gemstones that are set on your pieces of jewelry.
When you have washed all corners of the jewelry, rinse it multiple times in hot water to get rid of all dish detergent deposits.
You can use a soft cloth to pat the pieces dry or leave them to dry on a kitchen towel.
NB: Avoid using scouring powder or harsh detergents as these may cause the jewelry to lose its luster or get scratches on the surface.
3. Use dilute ammonia to restore shine
While dish soap does a good job of making sure that your jewelry is clean, it does not exactly restore any lost luster. Ammonia, however, has the capacity to restore the sheen in only a few steps.
You will need to dilute one part of liquid ammonia in three parts of water. Place the jewelry inside the solution and use a soft toothbrush to clean it.
Be sure to reach all nooks and crannies, including beneath gemstones and folds in rings, bracelets, earrings, and others.
When you have scrubbed comprehensively, dip the jewelry into the solution again, then proceed to rinse it with warm water.
Seeing as the ammonia solution is a lot stronger than the dish solution, you will need to rinse your jewelry pieces multiple times to make sure that all deposits of the solution are removed.
When thoroughly rinsed, dry the pieces with a soft cloth, or leave them on paper towels to dry out on their own. You can also buff them after they are dry to get rid of patches left by water.
Below are a few care practices that will help you maintain clean and shiny jewelry over time.
How to take care of Jeulia Jewelry
Take the jewelry pieces off
Jewelry acquires dirt and grime over time when it is worn too long. Some activities cause a lot more damage than others, and this is why it is important to take your pieces off. Here are a few instances that call for the removal of jewelry.
I. When cleaning
Cleaning detergents and solutions will almost always degrade the jewelry. Wearing rings and bracelets when cleaning will, in the long run, cause them to lose their luster, and some may even leave scratches if they are abrasive.
II. When engaging in sports
Sporting activities such as swimming may have a direct impact on your Jeulia jewelry. Long exposure to chlorine may degrade rings, earrings, bracelets, necklaces, watches, and others, causing them to lose their sheen over time.
III. When cooking
Your jewels may sustain a level of damage, especially if you use your hands to touch the food. You may have dough, oil, and other types of residue left on the pieces, and these may cause it to degrade over time.
Keep the jewelry safe
Proper storage is just as important as cleaning jewelry to keep it new and lustrous. Here are a few storage tips.
I. Stash it away in a jewelry box
A jewelry box will see to it that the pieces do not brush against each other, making sure that they do not sustain scratches over time. Make sure that the jewelry box is lined with a soft cloth such as velvet as it offers good cushioning.
II. Hang your necklaces and bracelets up on a hook
For bigger pieces of jewelry that cannot be stored in a jewelry box, it is important to hang them up on a hook to keep them from sustaining damage. This makes sure that they do not brush against each other which maintains their integrity and luster in the long run.
III. Keep it in a safe
If you have valuable Jeulia jewelry at home, it is important to keep it in a safe to make sure it is not stolen or easily tampered with.
Jeulia jewelry is known to be beautiful, and with the right care, it can deliver longevity.
You do, however, have to clean it routinely, and also employ proper maintenance practices.
With the right care, your pieces will always look new and great every time you wear them.
