Cleaning your Oceano Pearls jewelry
Wearing fine jewelry is like attaching a piece of art to yourself. Like every piece of art, fine jewels require care and maintenance. Dust, dirt, skin lotion and even soaps can rob your jewels of their natural sheen. So it’s our duty to give you some pro-tips to clean and care for your Oceano Pearls pieces.
Tips for Silver Jewelry
Purchasing a quality silver polish is essential. The best polishes have a dual function: cleaning the tarnish off of your silver jewelry, and leaving a protective coating that will help your jewels to keep their sheen. Silver polish is usually available in liquid form, or as wipes. The second type is ideal if you wish to clean silver without making too much of a mess; liquid polish can get a bit out of hand sometimes! Silver wipes are also quicker to use.
Gold & Rose Gold Vermeil
Our vermeil pieces consist of a thick coating of 18 carat gold on sterling silver. Caring for vermeil is not rocket science, however there are some crucial steps to follow. Never use chemical polish and solutions when cleaning vermeil. This may cause thinning of the coating. You will definitely want to keep abrasive wipes and cloths far from your vermeil jewelry. Neutral soap and water are your best bet here, much like when you are cleaning gemstones. It is also advised to put on the jewelry after applying perfume and lotion, as they can be abrasive.
And for Gold?
Solid gold requires less maintenance than its counterparts. To clean your gold jewelry, use neutral or mild soap (dishwashing liquid will do). Leave the jewels to soak in a soap and water solution for about 10 minutes. Rinse them afterwards, and use a soft cloth or soft-bristled toothbrush to get rid of any accumulated gunk.
