Q: How do I take care of my jewellery?
A: To help your jewellery last a long time while looking its best, take it off before you go to bed, and especially when swimming or bathing. This will prevent scratching, wear and tear on delicate chains and plated/gold fill items, and oil and dirt build-up.
Sterling silver will eventually tarnish with normal wear. Gold fill/plated jewellery may also tarnish, but at a much slower rate. To clean, gently wipe with a jewellery polishing cloth, or clean with a soft toothbrush and gentle soap (such as ecover washing up liquid) and water. Any jewellery with an oxidized (black) or stone element should not go into chemical jewellery cleaning solution or an ultrasonic cleaner.
Gemstones and pearls will slowly accumulate body oils and become dirty. Use a non-abrasive soap and water to wash them gently with your fingers. Do not use a polishing cloth on the surface of stones or pearls.
Q: How to energetically cleanse your ARCHANGEL or other jewellery?
A: The quickest way to cleanse your amulet is the Water Rinse. In the Water Rinse, you simply hold your gems under alternating warm and cold running water. It it is perfect way because it not only cleanses the gemstones of unwanted energies but also removes dirt and oil, so they feel extra refreshed and clean. Then if it is a possible place your jewel in front of morning sun. In this way you will charge it with new solar energy.
Q: How to clean Diamond jewellery?
Although diamond is the hardest mineral in nature, a strong blow could break it. It is also convenient that CHLORINE or other chemicals are out of reach of this type of jewelry.
Clean your diamonds regularly using a mixture of ammonia and water or a mild detergent. Dip the jewel in the soak and use a soft brush to remove dust or dirt. Pay special attention to the back of the jewel, this is where it gets dirtier.
Rinse thoroughly and dry your jewelry after cleaning before storing.
Avoid touching your clean diamonds with fingers. Handle the clean jewel by its edges.
