Taking Care Of Your Mint & Birch Bar Jewellery

Taking Care Of Your Mint & Birch Bar Jewellery

June 15, 2018

When it comes to jewellery your options are endless. You can wear jewellery in Summer, Spring, Fall, and Winter. You can wear it with a dress or with a t-shirt. You can wear it during social events, and you can wear it when you are by yourself. While bar jewellery is extremely versatile in the ways that it can be worn, stored, and flaunted, it must be taken care of properly if you plan on using it for a long period of time. In today’s blog post, we will be discussing some ways to ensure that your gold fill bar jewellery lasts as long as possible.

Things To Avoid

While regularly cleaning your customized bar necklace is the best way to ensure that it stays in top-notch quality for the longest period of time possible, there are some things that you should do your best to regulate or avoid.

  • Pools & Hot Tubs - One of the most damaging things that you can do to your jewellery is to wear it in the pool or the hot tub. Both pools and hot tubs are chock full of chemicals that are meant to balance the PH levels and bacterial levels in the water. If the water can kill bacteria, it can absolutely damage your gold fill jewellery.
  • Body Chemistry - Body chemistry is a rather ambiguous term, as in this case, it refers to anything that comes out of your pores. Natural oils that are necessary for skin health are the most common substance that slowly seeps from your pores, but dirt and other foreign substances that have accumulated on your skin may hitch a ride with the oils. Oils and other substances can damage the gold fill on your bar jewellery if it is not properly cleaned from time-to-time.
  • Sweat - Sweat, much like body chemistry can be potentially damaging to your bar necklace as it is an oily substance that gold fill doesn't necessarily react well to. Sweat, however, is highly variable, as some people's body chemistry will be more susceptible to tarnishing jewellery than others.
  • Product - Beauty products like sunscreen, google, unscented lotion, perfume, cleaning products, soaps, nail polish remover, and hairspray are all corrosive substances and if your gold fill bar necklace is not cleaned off quickly it can be tarnished.

How To Clean Gold Fill Jewellery

In order to clean your Mint & Birch gold fill bar jewellery, you will need two things — water and a non-abrasive cloth. While the materials that are needed to clean your jewellery are easily accessible and easy to use, it is extremely crucial that you clean it by dabbing the water free rather than wiping it off. If you were to wipe the water off of your Mint & Birch gold fill bar jewellery you could potentially damage it by rubbing dirt and other microscopic particles across its surface — causing micro-scratches.
