Do you offer answers to frequently asked questions on your website or via social media? Many women have questions about how to care for and clean their jewelry, and ideally, they will turn to you, their trusted jeweler, for answers. Here is a response you can share to a question we’ve heard many times before: “I wear my jewelry all of the time, but I’m worried I shouldn’t. Is it even safe to wear it in the shower?”
“We hear lots of questions from women about how best to safely care for their jewelry. One frequent query: ‘I wear my jewelry all of the time. Is that safe? Should I wear my jewelry in the shower?’ The down and dirty answer is no, wearing your jewelry in the shower is really not a good idea.
For starters, it’s too easy for your jewelry to slip off of you and slide right down the drain, especially with the slippery assistance of soap. In addition, soaps, shampoos, conditioners and lotions can leave residue on your favorite piece, dimming its sparkle, or contain chemicals that may actually damage your jewelry.
While removing your jewelry when you shower is the best choice, practically speaking, it may not always happen. Though there is certainly a risk, some people have jewelry they never remove for a variety of reasons. If you do end up wearing your jewelry in the shower (and really just due to regular wear), you will definitely want to clean the piece on a routine basis. Talk to your jeweler to determine what professional jewelry cleaning formula is best for the piece in question.
If you are worried about losing your jewelry if you remove it, just be sure to put it in the same place every time. Whether it’s in a small dish, a jewelry box or even a jar of jewelry cleaner (hey, you can keep your jewelry safe and clean it too!), being consistent with where you store your jewelry will help keep it safe.”
