5 End-of-Summer Jewelry Care Tips to Keep Your Sparklers Shining

Taking great care of your jewelry during the summer can be a frustrating task.
Going swimming? Take that beautiful new engagement ring off. Sunbathing? Sans sparklers, please. Jet-setting on a faraway vacation? Maybe that favorite heirloom necklace should stay behind for safekeeping.

The bad news: Summer is fading off into the sunset. The good news: It's time for your bling to take center stage again.

We have some end-of-summer jewelry care, cleaning, and storage tips to refresh your pretties for those holiday parties that are (believe it or not) just around the corner!

Bring back the sparkle Bring back the sparkle.
Wipe down your frequently worn items with a clean, soft, slightly damp cloth (and avoid doing this). For those more frequently worn items, visit your jeweler for a professional cleaning. You'll leave with jewelry that sparkles like new!
Bring back the sparkle Ensure safekeeping.
Keep your jewelry in a clean, dry place such as a fabric-lined jewelry case, or in a box with compartments and dividers to prevent pieces from scratching each other.
Bring back the sparkle Inspect for damage.
Take your jewelry to a reputable jeweler and have it inspected for loose stones, broken or worn prongs, weak clasps and other potential damages that may not be visible to the naked eye. Remember, some preventive repairs are covered on your Jewelers Mutual policy.
Bring back the sparkle Reappraise the value.
Bring your last insurance evaluation or appraisal to your jeweler for a review of the values. Don't forget to tell us if your values have changed so we can adjust your coverage!
Bring back the sparkle Refresh your collection.
Bring out those special jewelry items reserved for fall/winter and the holidays. Borrow a stunner from a friend for a special occasion. Treat yourself to a brand new sparkler (with insurance, of course).

Follow these guidelines and you'll keep your beautiful jewelry looking good as new! (compliments of Jewelers Mutual Insurance)
