Is hydro-alcoholic gel a threat to our jewelry?
We avoid any contact with the solution
Its abrasive formula can dry out hands, so it is legitimate to wonder if jewelry and clothing that come into contact with the hydro-alcoholic gel can also suffer.
The alcohol present in it tends to attack the surface, there are also stones that will absorb these liquids such as opal, coral... And this can dry them out... the best solution is to remove your jewelry when there is a sustained use of the hydro-alcoholic gel.
Our jewels take a big blow with each friction of hydro-alcoholic solution, I advise you to rinse your rings with water in order to remove the possible residues of hydro-alcoholic gel.
Even for metal and gemstone jewelry that are supposed to be immune to alcohol, the gel can slip under the stones, and dirty / tarnish the jewelry.
First of all, it is normal for a piece of jewellery worn on a daily basis to show signs of wear and tear (regardless of its composition), because it lives at the rhythm of our lives!
The more you care for your jewellery, the better it will age, there is no secret, if you take care of it, you ensure a longer life for them.
No matter what the metal, no matter what the stone, the chemicals attack our jewellery without any detour.
When washing dishes, cleaning, gardening or going to the pool or the sea, consider removing it.
Also, ladies, jewellery, stones and pearls are sensitive to perfume, just like creams or other cosmetic products, I advise you beforehand to perfume yourself, or to cream yourself and wait a quarter of an hour before adorning yourself with your jewellery.
A piece of jewellery is extremely sensitive to humidity, do not abuse it, respect it.
Do not store your jewellery in the bathroom, water vapours may alter your favourite bracelet or ring.
If your silver jewelry accidentally gets wet, dry it carefully and especially inside the ring.
I clean my jewellery with a "wipe" that opticians provide to clean the glasses, however you can take a chamois leather.
I prefer to take soft soapy water and clean with a very soft brush, go easy, then wipe perfectly with a soft cloth, do not forget that jewellery is sensitive to moisture.
Silver is a metal that tarnishes with time, it is inevitable. It is impossible to predict how long it will take for a piece of jewellery to fade, it depends on the acidity of the person's skin, and how you take care of it.
Did you know that gemstone pearls live better in contact with your skin, they hydrate when they come into contact with the air and your skin. The best way to preserve their beauty and radiance is to wear them.
Avoid impacts so that they do not scratch.
Pearls are alive just like stones, take care of them, they are sensitive to temperature variation, others will like to recharge themselves more at full moon, fearing the rays of the sun, like the amethyst who will tarnish, by experience pink quartz is sensitive to the sun, it will lose more quickly in color.
If you do not wear your favorite bracelet or lucky ring, then, have the reflex to store them away from light and dust, when you order, each piece of jewelry will be placed in its case, you will no longer have any excuses.
And how do you take care of your jewellery?
