Keep your jewelry sparkling this summer!

Whether you’re hitting the beach, relaxing at the lake or traveling abroad, your jewelry and gems will most likely be in tow. The summer months provide a unique set of challenges when caring for your rings, necklaces, earnings and more. Here are a few tips to make sure your bling stays bright while you enjoy the season.

Ensure your watch is water resistant– Check your timepiece for a water proof or water resistant marking. Make sure the crown is screwed down tightly; if not, your watch can fill up with water and ruin your day of fun in the surf.

Do not wear pearls into the water– This can be confusing as pearls come from the ocean, however it’s the silk used to string a necklace or bracelet and the adhesive on earrings that will be compromised when wet.

Remove diamonds before applying suntan lotion– Grease is used to mine for diamonds so the two are naturally attracted to each other. This means your sunscreen will seek out and stick to a diamond rings, bracelets, necklaces and beyond. Always be mindful to take off your jewelry before application (and reapplication) and store in a safe place.

Always rinse your jewelry after a day in the sun– Salt, chlorine and sweat can dull your sparkle so make sure you give everything a good rinse at the end of a long summer day.

Last but not least, don’t forget to bring your jewelry in for regular cleanings at your local Provident Jewelry location.
