Special care for gold and silver personalized jewelry
All jewellery can eventually tarnish, but your best defense is to be vigilant and properly care for your items. At UB Jewels, we recommend that you give your gold or silver jewellery a quick clean at the end of the day, using a soft cleaning cloth, to remove any fingerprints or oils that may have accumulated from normal wear. And once a week, we recommend a more deep clean — use a simply mix of 1/2 cup warm water with a few squirts of mild liquid soap, and let your jewellery soak for three minutes. Then remove your items, rinse with clean water, and allow the jewellery to dry. That’s it!
Sterling silver jewellery deserves extra special care, so for these precious items we recommend a silver polish.You can purchase a quality silver cream at most jewellery stores, drug stores and even supermarkets.
Your jewellery commemorates your most special moments in life, so treat it with care and it will last you a lifetime
