All jewellery pieces are delicate and require special care when cleaning and storing them. Little precautions like applying perfume, hairspray and makeup prior to putting on your jewelry can make your special jewellery pieces go a long way.
There are different ways for taking care of these precious ornaments as they differ from each other due to the materials used in their making. So here are few easy ways to make your jewellery shine forever.

Gold
Pieces made of high-carat gold are more prone to denting than those of lower-carat gold and should be stored separately. Any piece that is hollow should also be stored likewise.
To clean your gold jewelry, mix up a solution of one part ammonia and six parts water to and soak your jewelry in the solution for less than a minute. Then remove it and gently scrub with a soft-bristled toothbrush or a nail brush. Avoid using baking soda, toothpaste or any type of tough cleaners on gold as it is a soft metal and these things might cause scratches. 05
Diamonds
The best way to clean diamond jewellery is with warm soapy water and a soft-bristle brush or old toothbrush. Use only distilled or sterile water when cleaning the diamond jewelry, as the chlorine found in the normal tap water can cause discoloration to the jewelry setting. Place the water in the microwave if necessary to achieve a high temperature then add 1 tsp. of mild liquid dishwashing detergent and stir. Additionally, avoid using any household cleaner that contains chlorine bleach on diamond jewellery.

Silver
To clean the silver items make a paste of baking soda and water and apply it with a soft cloth or sponge on the silver jewellery. Rub thoroughly, rinse clean and pat dry. Baking soda is non-abrasive, inexpensive and is readily available, making it a perfect cleaning agent.

Pearls
Take extreme care with your pearl jewellery as they are very sensitive to oils, perfumes, makeup, and hair sprays. Apply all these products prior to wearing your pearl jewellery to minimize contact. Store them in a long box so that they do not rub against themselves or other jewelry. Be very cautious about getting your pearls wet.
