CARING FOR A PIECE OF JEWELLERY
When we buy a piece of jewellery or when it is given to us as a gift
the first thing we instinctively do is admire it in all its beauty and then wear it.
There are pieces of jewellery that we only wear on special occasions,
others that we wear every day because we just can't do without them,
this, however, requires special attention to product care.
In fact, jewellery is not 100% indestructible and none of it will last for many years
in optimal conditions, even if we strive to make them as durable as possible.
Gold can normally be cleaned with added soap and water.
After this step, it should be rinsed with clean water and dried with a soft cloth.
Jewellery made of this material definitely needs the most care.
If not worn, they should not be exposed to the air,
but kept in special velvet or silk bags, or in jewellery boxes.
The most common problem with silver jewellery is oxidation,
a natural process that can be prevented with proper
and care can be prevented.
