Glam Tip: Bauble TLC

-

It’s safe to bet that most of our sparkly statement jewelry isn’t made up of real diamonds, emeralds, and rubies (have you ever seen a real neon pink gem?). That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t care for them as if they were the real deal.

The Basics:

Store costume jewelry in a cool, dry location such as a jewelry box or sealed bags.  Do not apply makeup or lotion while wearing your jewelry as the metals will absorb the substance and tarnish.

Cleaning:

At the end of each wear, wipe down the pieces with a paper towel or a lint-free cloth.  This will help remove any sweat, oil, dirt, etc. that the jewelry may have absorbed throughout the day.  To give metals, not stones, a deeper  cleaning, simply rub with a jewelry cloth.  Polishes intended for gold or silver will discolor the metal.  An easy way to clean gemstone pieces is with a soft-bristled toothbrush and hand soap.  Simply moisten the are you wish to clean with water and a small amount of soap and gently scrub with the toothbrush.
