+ plus: Best products to buy online and use at Home

When you buy a jewel, you know that you’ll have to take care of it, mainly because of oxidation.

What is oxidation?

Oxidation is a chemical and natural reaction happening with most of the metals (except gold, platinum and aluminium). The dark patina that we all know, born when metal and oxygen meet each other.

+plus there are a lot of factors that can change and dull the surface of your jewelry like soap, cream or sweat.

Best practices to keep your jewelry shiny and bright

Don't use Soap

Don’t wash your jewel with aggressive soap. Store your rings away when you wash your hands, and wear them when skin is dry.

Don't use perfume

Don’t use perfume on your jewels.

Avoid Humidity

If you going to relax in a sauna or Turkish bath put your jewelry in a place away from humidity.

Don't use cream

Don’t use cream or oil on your jewel.

NOTE: pay attention to every diy jewelry cleaning method that you find online. Before try any homemade strategy, make sure to trust the people who post the article or video. 


In particular, I strongly recommend to avoid:

TOOTHPASTE, you risk to dull stones, especially precious stones

TOO HARD BRUSHES or abrasive, there would be the risk of scratching the metal or stones.

aggressive SOAP, you risk dulling your jewel.

Take care of your jewelry at home

The dark patina that we all know as oxidation, born when metal and oxygen meet each other.

Oxidation is a chemical and natural reaction happening with most of the metals (except gold, platinum and aluminum). 


There are a lot of factors that can change and dull the surface of your jewelry like soap, cream, or humidity. That's why oxidation can be particularly significative especially during the summer.

Consider that this reaction can change over time on the skin and can be related to menses or other factors that change the acidity of the epidermis.
 

Polishing your jewelry quite frequently keeping your skin dry can reduce this chemical reaction.

The best "ordinary care" for keeping your Giardinoblu jewel shine over time is rubbing the metal with a leather cloth, without any product.

 

When you want to give your jewel "extra care" I recommend you to use the products here below (we're not affiliate) for bronze or silver polishing.

This is my favorite way to take care of my jewelry. There are several great products available online at various price ranges. In general, they are all affordable and quite durable. 
It's the best way if you wanna get very nice results, sometimes astonishing, in just a few minutes from home. 

Best home treatment for Silver and Bronze

Put just a few drops on a tissue and rub the metal for a few seconds. Rinse and brush (I use an old toothbrush) for a few seconds.Your jewel looks new.
