CARING FOR DESIGNER FASHION JEWELRY

When you fall in love with a pair of earrings from Hey Girl, you won't want to take  them off! However, in order to preserve your designer fashion jewelry there are a few occasions you may want to avoid wearing it. Here are some helpful tips to help your pieces retain their luster and last for years to come.

HOW TO STORE YOUR DESIGNER JEWELRY

Proper storage is essential in maintaining your designer jewelry wear after wear. We recommend storing your earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings in air tight bags, jewelry boxes, or soft pouches as they prevent tarnish. Jewelry boxes are the most advisable as a storage source for all jewelry, especially since most of them include anti tarnish strips! Plus they keep your items safe, organized and look beautiful in your dressing area. Here are a few recommendations for lovely jewelry storage for your home or suitcase.

HOW TO CLEAN YOUR DESIGNER JEWELRY

Even people who take the utmost care of their items will have to clean them periodically. Cleaning of designer jewelry can be done with a small polishing cloth like this one. Simply apply the cloth with mild pressure to the items needing a shine. This will remove buildup and dirt without removing the finish.

WHAT TO AVOID WHILE WEARING DESIGNER JEWELRY

Lotions, makeup, hair products, and perfume can create residue and buildup that will reduce the shine or finish on your earrings or other jewelry. It's best to put on your jewelry after the aforementioned products have been used. Never spray perfume directly on yourself while you are wearing jewelry, as you should avoid contact with anything containing derivatives of alcohol. It is best to complete your skincare routine and then apply your jewelry to keep it sparkling and like-new.

Avoid wearing jewelry while cleaning with harsh chemicals, since certain household cleaners can strip and dull the finishes. Knock out your chores and then add your gorgeous gems when you are done. This will help preserve the finish of your pieces.

Ingredients from shampoos and shower gels as well as perspiration from exercise can lead to tarnish. Chlorine from swimming pools can discolor gold finishes too. We recommend keeping your shower, gym session, or dip in the pool jewelry-free.
