Everything You Should Know About Jewelry Cleaning & Maintenance


Jewelry is created, in most cases, to be both beautiful and durable. Personalized jewelry, like a custom necklace or a custom bracelet, may have some facets or corners that could gather dust from everyday wear, or have their shine dulled a little by natural body oils. That’s why it’s important to have a regular cleaning schedule for custom jewelry – committing to bringing your piece in for cleaning at regular intervals will help it stay gorgeous, year after year.

Did you know there are also a few things you can do to keep “mileage” off of your favorite custom jewelry in-between cleaning appointments, too? Here are a few rules to keep your favorite belongings looking picture-perfect:

• Don’t wash your dishes while wearing anything that will be immersed, such as custom rings.

• Remove hand and wrist jewelry prior to applying hand lotions, and allow lotion to “soak in” before putting them back on.

• Take your jewelry off prior to bathing. (Important tip: make a habit of doing this in the bedroom, not by your bathroom sink, to avoid the potential ring-down-the-drain headache.)

• Don’t let a broken fastener or bent link go unfixed: you might intend to do it later, but the jewelry could break and become lost before you do.

At Gold N’ I, we know how precious your jewelry is to you – memories, wishes, and love are often as much a part of your custom jewelry as precious metals or precious gems. Take care of your favorite pieces and they’ll take care of your style in return!

Custom Made Jewelry: A New Kind of Experience


Jewelry says so much about your style all on its own, but through custom jewelry creations, it can say even more. Whether you’re taking an inherited piece in for jewelry repair or jewelry maintenance and want to change it up, or you’re intrigued about creating something new from scratch, customized jewelry is both exciting and rewarding. Imagine a new statement piece that frames and flatters a stone from an old piece that no longer suits you, or a bracelet crafted to incorporate your favorite precious gems and style.

What Is Custom Made Jewelry?

Custom jewelry is a blanket term for gorgeous specially-created jewelry pieces: custom bracelets, custom rings, and so on.  To create one of these works of art, a client shares their vision with a jewelry designer, who then uses his or her skills to bring it to vivid, glittering life. One of a kind, custom pieces of jewelry help the wearer share their style with the world, giving them a truly unique accessory that they’ll love to wear or share with a loved one.

Depending on your tastes, these jewelry creations can use any type of precious metal, incorporate a variety of themes, and include multiple precious gems throughout their structure.

The only limit to the beauty you can create is your own imagination: it’s time to dream in the hues of rubies, emeralds, sapphires, and gold.
