The jewellery industry is huge all around the world and has an estimated worth of roughly $375 billion. Jewellery brands are constantly competing with one another to create stunning products that consumers simply can’t resist buying. This gives customers a huge range of new jewellery choices that they’re sure to fall in love with.

Buying new jewellery is an exciting time for most people and seeing it glimmer and shine for the first time is a moment that you’ll want to relive over and over. However, jewellery can quickly lose its shimmer if it’s not cared for properly. Fortunately, there are a few easy steps that you can take to care for your new jewellery.

So, if you’ve just bought a new statement piece and want to keep it looking as good as the first time you wore it, then use the following tips to increase your chances of achieving that. Read on to discover how you can take care of your new jewellery.

Avoid chemicals

We know you’ll be eager to get your new jewellery like a diamond ring on when you’re getting ready but holding off putting it on until you’ve applied all your make-up and hairspray is on. This is because chemicals in beauty products can tarnish the jewellery by reducing its lustre, meaning it won’t shine as bright as it once did.

Wipe after wear

Whenever you wear your new jewellery, you run the risk of collecting dust, dirt or even food splatter, so a good wipe-down is necessary before you put it away at the end of the day. Try to use a soft, lint-free cloth to do this and you should avoid any grubby build-ups of unwanted items.

Avoid direct sunlight

Sunlight and heat can damage your new jewellery too and could cause the colour as well as durability of gemstones and metals to fade over time too. Hats can be a great way to cover earrings and necklaces from the sun or you can simply take your jewellery off if you think it may be getting damaged on hot days.

Store them correctly

There are plenty of ways to store and organise your jewellery safely and this is important because it can protect them from damage when you’re not wearing them. Effective storage can prevent any bumps or scratches from appearing on your gems, which should keep them looking newer for longer.
