Including professional jewelry cleaning and inspection into your jewelry care routine allows you to enjoy your precious pieces for years.
The Significance of Jewelry Cleaning
Jewelry cleaning maintains your precious jewelry's beauty, condition, and value.
Accumulation of dirt, oils, and residues on jewelry
Over time, your jewelry can accumulate dirt, dust, grime, oils, and residues from everyday wear. Cleaning jewelry helps remove these scums to restore your jewelry's luster, shine, and brilliance.
Cleaning silver jewelry helps prevent the buildup of tarnish, which can cause discoloration and corrosion if left unattended. While gold doesn't tarnish like silver, it can still accumulate dirt, oils, and residue over time. This makes cleaning gold jewelry a must.
Impact on the appearance and brilliance of jewelry
Your jewelry will, over time, lose its shine and appear dull. Regular jewelry cleaning will reveal the natural luster and shine of your gemstones and metals for a more brilliant appearance. Regular cleaning of your jewelry can ensure that it always looks its best and reflects its true beauty and craftsmanship.
Restoration of shine and sparkle through cleaning
Certain substances can cause stains or discoloration on jewelry, particularly on silver. Regular jewelry cleaning eliminates stains, restores the metal's shine, and prevents further discoloration. The removal of tarnishes or stains can revive your jewelry's original sparkle.

Regular jewelry inspection can detect any signs of damage in your jewelry such as loose stones, worn prongs, or weakened clasps. Addressing issues promptly, can preserve your jewelry’s stones, settings, and overall structural integrity.
Professional Jewelry Inspection
Experienced jewelers and gemologists do professional jewelry inspections. Jewelers use magnification tools such as loupes or microscopes to examine the jewelry in detail. This is to detect any hairline cracks, chips, or imperfections not visible to the naked eye that may require attention.
After inspection, a professional jeweler will provide you with a comprehensive report detailing the condition of every component of your jewelry. The report serves as a guide for repairs, maintenance, or cleaning.
