Caring for Your Jewelry

At Joe Rosenberg Jewelers, we understand that your jewelry is not just an accessory, but a cherished possession. That's why we've put together this care page to provide you with the information you need to keep your jewelry looking its best. From handling and storage to maintenance and repairs, we've got you covered. With proper care, your jewelry can be enjoyed for generations to come.

Jewelry Maintenance
  • Regularly clean your jewelry using a soft-bristled brush and a mild cleaning solution. Avoid using harsh chemicals, as these can damage your jewelry.
  • Have your jewelry professionally cleaned and inspected at least once a year. A professional jeweler can identify any issues and make repairs before they become major problems.
  • Be sure to have your jewelry properly sized and adjusted to ensure a comfortable fit. Loose or tight jewelry can cause damage or discomfort.
  • Be mindful of wear and tear on your jewelry. Avoid wearing delicate pieces during activities that could cause damage, and remove your jewelry before doing household chores or heavy lifting.
  • Store your jewelry in a dry, cool place away from direct sunlight and extreme temperatures. Exposure to heat and light can cause discoloration and damage.
Watch Maintenance
  • Have your watch serviced by a professional watchmaker every three to five years to ensure proper function and longevity.
  • Avoid exposing your watch to extreme temperatures, shock, and magnetic fields, as these can affect its accuracy.
  • Store your watch in a dry, cool place away from direct sunlight and strong magnetic fields.
  • If your watch is water-resistant, make sure you have the seals and gaskets checked regularly and avoid exposing it to water if it is not rated for diving.
  • Clean your watch regularly with a soft cloth and avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that could scratch or damage the finish.
Proper Storage
  • To avoid scratches, store each piece of jewelry separately in a soft pouch or box. This can prevent tangling, scratching, and other types of damage.
  • A jewelry box with compartments can help you organize your jewelry and prevent pieces from rubbing against each other. Look for a box that has soft lining to protect your jewelry.
  • Store your jewelry in a dry, cool place away from direct sunlight. Exposure to humidity can cause metal to tarnish and gemstones to become cloudy. Direct sunlight can fade some gemstones and cause others to change color.
  • Avoid storing your jewelry near chemicals, such as household cleaners, as these can cause damage to your jewelry.
  • Avoid touching jewelry with dirty or oily hands, as this can cause smudges and smears.
  • Do not wear jewelry while doing activities that could cause damage, such as swimming, gardening, or playing sports.
  • Avoid exposure to extreme temperatures, humidity, and direct sunlight, as this can cause discoloration and damage to gemstones.
  • When removing jewelry, gently wipe it down with a soft cloth to remove any oils or dirt that may have accumulated.
  • Store your jewelry separately in soft pouches or boxes to prevent scratching and tangling.
  • Regularly inspect your jewelry to check for any damage, loose stones, or other issues. Early detection can help prevent further damage and reduce repair costs.
  • Always take your jewelry to a trusted and reputable jeweler for repairs. Attempting to fix it yourself or taking it to an unqualified jeweler could cause further damage.
  • Be sure to ask for an estimate of the repair costs before agreeing to the work. This will help you make an informed decision and avoid any surprises when it comes to the cost.
  • Keep in mind that some repairs may take longer than others, depending on the extent of the damage and the availability of parts.
  • Once the repairs are complete, inspect the jewelry thoroughly to ensure that it has been restored to its original condition.
