It’s that time of the year again! With longer days and warmer weather, it’s the most awaited season of the year. People all over New Jersey are anticipating the fun ahead and planning their next adventure. If you like to wear your jewelry year-round, it’s important to understand the basics of how to protect your pieces against the summer weather. That’s why we’ve put together our recommendations so you can keep your most prized pieces in impeccable shape.
Shielding from the Facets of Summer
Sometimes, the sizzling heat can be unbearable during the summer. So, we escape to the pool or beach and cool off. However, these bodies of water are no friend to fine jewelry. Whenever you jump into the water, make sure that you remove your precious pieces. Chlorine, saltwater and sun can tarnish metals and change the color of certain gems. There’s also a risk of losing your exquisite jewelry. We recommend storing them away safely and saving them for other outings.
Maintain the Luster
Products like lotion, sunscreen and mosquito repellent are made to protect our skin from the summer elements. However, the residue from these can be detrimental to your favorite treasures. To maintain the shine, let the product soak into your skin before decorating yourself in your jewelry. When you remove your pieces, wipe them down with a soft cloth and store them properly.
Re-Tipping & Re-Sizing Your Jewelry
Imagine looking down at your ring, earring or necklace halfway through a beach day only to discover that it’s missing a stone. This is a nightmare that nobody wants to endure, which is why we recommend getting your jewelry checked twice a year. When that time comes around, stop by Morton & Rudolph. We’ll make sure that you never have to go through that worst-case scenario situation.
