- Have your jewelry cleaned regularly so dirt & oil doesn't build up on the metal by even more importantly, under the gemstones & diamonds which causes them to look dull & cloudy. Most jewelry stores offer FREE professional cleaning...The Gold Mine does for sure!
- Take your jewelry in for a "Spa Treatment" once a year. What do I mean? This means having your jewelry professionally buffed which removes scratches and brings it back to a high luster shine.
- If you have white gold or silver jewelry, you'll need to have it Rhodium finished every so often. This brings the metal back to a "High White" color instead of a yellowy white which in can turn into over time. Rhodium finishing is routinely done at the factory to insure a fine white look and also prevents silver from tarnishing.
- Buy a bottle of jewelry cleaner at most any jewelry store for either silver or gold jewelry to use as a good "At Home Cleaner" which is good in-between jewelry store visits.
