Cleaning & Protecting Your Filigree Jewelry
Suggestions for Keeping Your Jewelry Like New
Because of the engraving on filigree jewelry, care must be taken to keep it clean and bright. Here are a few suggestions that will help keep your purchase shining for years to come:
Remove your rings when performing household chores or messy tasks.
Avoid wearing your rings when showering and hand-washing, this will prevent a soap film from building up in the engraving and dulling the finish.
Avoid exposing your jewelry to salt water and harsh chemicals.
Take care to apply makeup and hairspray before putting on jewelry, smudges and sprays can dull the finish.
Visit your jeweler at least once a year to have your ring inspected and cleaned.
Since emeralds are delicate and softer than many other gems — they require special care when being cleaned and they are particularly sensitive to dramatic changes in temperature. Never clean emeralds with steam or ultrasonic processes, simply wipe with a soft cloth.
To clean your filigree jewelry at home, brush each piece with a soft bristle brush to remove dust and other particles. Soak the ring in a solution of mild dish detergent and lukewarm water, then brush again lightly. Rinse with lukewarm water and dry with a soft chamois cloth.
