Jewelry Care & Cleaning

Jewelry Care & Cleaning

Bliss by Cori jewelry will withstand reasonable wear and tear, however by its very design, its pieces are delicate and should be treated with care.

You want your jewelry to stay as beautiful as the day you received it, so below are some guidelines to keep it looking like new.

Contact with perfumes, soaps, lotions and creams can discolor and damage jewelry. I recommend removing your jewelry before applying perfumes and lotions.

Though many customers wear Bliss by Cori jewelry as everyday pieces, there are still ways to keep it looking shiny and perfect forever!

To avoid scratching or bending your jewelry or snapping any chains, you should remove it when exercising, showering or sleeping or carrying out any manual activity.

Make sure to also remove your jewelry before swimming as chlorine can damage/tarnish gold-filled, gold-plated and sterling silver jewelry.

Gemstone Beaded Jewelry

Most gemstone beads can be cleaned using a washing solution of slightly tepid water and mild soap such as Ivory Dish Liquid.

Dip a lint free cotton cloth into the liquid to dampen and wring out excess water.

Using a circular motion, gently wipe the cloth over the full body of the bead to remove dust or buildup on the exterior.

Cleaning of beads with exceptionally heavy buildup, may require that you disassemble the necklace to clean the beads. The best care for your beads is the proper care during wearing your gemstones.

A rule of thumb is to add your jewelry as the last item on and first item off while dressing which will diminish environmental or accidental damage.

We do not recommend the use of commercial "cleaning immersion solutions" as they will remove titanium metallic or aurora borealis coatings on beads.

We do not recommend the use of Commercial Ultra Sonic Cleaners as they can damage beads or metal finishes.

Gold-Filled Jewelry

To clean your gold-filled jewelry, use an ultrasonic cleaner with one part Windex and three parts water. If you don’t have this, use the same Windex/water solution to soak your jewelry in for a few minutes and a soft toothbrush to gently clean away any buildup.

Sterling Silver Jewelry

To clean your sterling silver jewelry, use a sterling silver cloth. If you don’t have one, make a baking soda paste with two parts baking soda, one part water. Gently rub the mixture into the jewelry and use a soft toothbrush to clean away buildup.

Gold-Plated Jewelry

To keep your gold-plated jewelry looking new, gently wipe down pieces after every wear with a SOFT cloth, such as one you’d use for your glasses or camera lens.

To clean your gold-plated jewelry, use warm water and basic soap (not antibacterial soap, as it contains chemicals that can tarnish gold-plating). Soak your pieces in the solution for a few minutes, then wipe down with that soft cloth to restore the shine!

Storing Your Jewelry

Store your jewelry in a dry place away from direct sunlight or extremes of temperature to avoid oxidation and tarnishing. It is best to store jewelry made of similar materials together, as mixing gold-plated pieces with silver ones could cause them to tarnish more quickly.

I recommend keeping your jewelry in your Bliss by Cori cloth jewelry bag.
