"Make Your Jewelry Sparkle: How to Keep It Clean and Shiny"

Do you have a collection of costume jewelry that you’re looking to keep in tip-top shape? Cleaning costume jewelry can help ensure that it looks its best for years to come. When cleaning costume jewelry, it's important to be gentle. Harsh chemicals and abrasive products can damage the finishes and plating of costume jewelry so use caution when selecting a cleaner. Many people prefer to make their own cleaners at home using a mild dishwashing soap and warm water.


Simply soak the jewelry in the solution for 10 to 15 minutes and then gently scrub with a soft brush. Be sure to rinse the jewelry thoroughly after cleaning and dry it with a lint-free cloth. If your costume jewelry is highly priced and incredibly delicate or has stones or crystals, you may want to consider taking it to a professional jeweler for cleaning. Professional jewelers have higher-quality cleaning supplies and expertise in handling delicate jewelry.


Lastly, it’s a good idea to store costume jewelry separately from other jewelry. This will help prevent scratches and chips and keep the jewelry looking like new for years to come. With these tips, you’ll be able to keep your costume jewelry in pristine condition and show it off.
