Ways to maintain various types of jewellery from Tomei Malaysia

Tomei Malaysia sells a range of products from gold wafers to white gold. So no matter what type of jewellery you choose to purchase, it will eventually collect dirt and grime as well as lose its “spark” over time. As a result, here’s a guide on taking care of different kinds of jewellery.

Gold

For the gold products from Tomei Malaysia such as the coins, bangles or pendant, it tends to store a lot of dirt and grime particularly if is used often. Nonetheless, gold is a metal that does not discolor easily. First and foremost, fill up a bowl with warm water and add in a teaspoon of mild dish-washing liquid. Soak the jewelry in the solution and wait roughly fifteen minutes before removing it. This will help to remove any dirt or grime stuck in the jewelry. If you prefer a thorough cleaning, utilize a soft-bristled brush and scrub it gently after soaking it in the solution.

Diamonds

Depending on how the diamonds are placed on the jewelry, if there is little spacing between each of the stones, it will tend to have a lot of dirt trapped in it. It is advisable to avoid using any kinds of brush to scrub the diamond as there is a possibility of scratching it. Similar to cleaning gold, soak it in the mild liquid detergent solution for roughly fifteen minutes. After that, remove the jewelry from the solution and dab it with a lint-free soft cloth.

Pearls

Perhaps one of the more fragile and delicate jewelry, pearls are harder to maintain so it is important to take extra precaution while cleaning it. Abrasive materials or cleaners should be avoided as is might ruin the outer coating of the pearl. Not only that, it will take away the shine as well as scratch the surface. As an alternative, dip it into soapy water and softly wipe the pearls. It is also advisable not to soak into the solution as it may cause more damage to it. Finally, dry the pearl with a soft damp cloth.

Silver

In contrast with gold, silver is a metal that tends to tarnish after wearing it over time. This is why it is important to keep it clean. To prevent your jewelry from looking dull, rinse it under warm water and dry it with a soft cloth. The only difference between silver and other kinds of metal is that it can be polished. There are various products in the market that is made specifically for polishing silver. Once the jewelry has been polished to a shine, rinse the residue off with cold water and then utilize a soft cloth to dry it.

Gemstones

Among all the other jewelry, gemstones tend to be more on the pricier side. It is vital to know the different methods of cleaning it as different types of gemstones have different methods of cleaning. For example, emeralds are more prone to fracturing as opposed to sturdier stones such as diamonds. The simplest and safest method of cleaning is to utilize a regular glass cleaner. This will be enough to remove any oil and dirt as well as give it is “spark”.

Other important aspects to take note of

Remove jewelry during tasks

To ideally preserve your Tomei jewelry you should remove it so that any physical damage or exposure to harsh chemicals can be prevented. It is recommended to remove all jewelry particularly if you are carrying tasks such as kitchen work, gardening, house cleaning and other common tasks.

Apply makeup without jewelry

When you are prepping to go to work or any event, the cosmetics, hairspray, perfume, and lotion that come in contact with the jewelry can do more harm than good. Thus, if you want to maintain your jewelry, it is best to put it on only after grooming.

Avoid wearing jewelry in swimming pools

The chlorinated water in the swimming pool can react badly with metals in the jewelry and causing it to change colour and structural damage. Therefore, it is advisable to remove any jewelry before you enter the pool or spa. On the other hand, there are chances where you might lose your expensive jewelry in the pool, so to prevent any of that from happening, simply remove it.

Damaged jewelry

There is a possibility that you may exacerbate a damaged, cracked or broken jewelry when you clean it. Therefore, if you notice your jewelry has been damaged, it should be taken in for repairs as soon as possible. Also, you want to inspect it regularly because there might be small damages that only can be seen when examined.
