RESOVON Jewelry Cleaning Steps

1. Bring in your jewelry
At RESOVON, professional jewelry cleaning is usually an extra service that you can clean while you wait. If you have multiple items, you can always drop them off at our store for a reasonable fee to be thoroughly cleaned and inspected.

2. Inspection process
Before cleaning, your consultant will check your jewelry to make sure there are no loose stones or need further repairs. If you wish, they can examine your item further, informing you of potential risks to be aware of or to consider for future repairs.

3. Jewelry cleaning
Once he is sure that the tracking is safe, the jeweler will evaluate the best way to clean the jewelry. Polishing wheels make precious metals shine, ultrasonic cleaners remove dirt and grime from small crevices, and steam will make any stone shine. If you are cleaning white gold jewelry, you may also consider rhodium.

Jewelry Inspection
Before polishing your jewelry, we will thoroughly inspect it to diagnose any wear or erosion. If we notice any wear or erosion, we will recommend preventive maintenance to help you avoid risks in time.

Because precious metals are soft and easy to move. We recommend that all precious metal jewelry that is worn frequently be cleaned and inspected every six months to ensure the stone is securely set. Frequently worn gem-set items should be viewed by an experienced jeweler and inspected for prong and closure wear to avoid the sad event of a lost gemstone.

For some jewelry that is worn every day, the surface is rough, eroded, and worn due to frequent exposure. However, going to professional departments such as jewelry stores for cleaning is a waste of time and cost. Some customers will choose to clean jewelry at home. So, are all jewelry suitable for cleaning at home?

The answer is NO. Many materials should not be cleaned at home. Here are some jewelry varieties that should be handled with care.

1. Organic gemstones or materials such as pearls, ivory, leather, coral, wood, etc. should not be exposed to harsh cleaning agents or soaked in liquids or ultrasonically cleaned. Because harsh liquids can permanently damage or stain these jewelry materials.

2. Antique or rare artist jewelry should not be left in the home. Polishing and jewelry cleaning can destroy the luster and integrity of some rare jewelry.

3. Never allow non-professionals to polish and clean the coins.

4. Some gemstones that have been treated or contain natural oils will affect the quality due to the absorption of detergent or moisture when cleaning jewelry. Such as emerald, opal, turquoise, lapis lazuli and all the organic gemstones and materials listed above.

5. Chemical exposure can lead to disaster. Soaking jewelry in chlorine-based cleaners can completely dissolve a piece of jewelry, leaving only the stones behind.

Likewise, constant exposure to swimming pool chlorine can corrode the solder used to make jewelry.

A tiny drop of mercury on a broken thermometer can seep into the gold and contaminate any other jewelry it comes into contact with.

In general, anything corrosive that contains acids, bases, or chemicals may not be suitable for cleaning jewelry.

6. Polishing coated metals with abrasive compounds will wear away the coating, and once the metal body is exposed, they may discolour or tarnish over time.

7. Pay attention to the following details when using an ultrasonic cleaner to clean jewelry.

The friction of the ultrasonic water tank may cause abrasion to the surface of the jewelry.

Ultrasonic vibrations loosen gemstones and break fragile materials such as amber and enamel.

Ultrasonic vibrations can change the color or remove surface enhancements of many exotic gemstones.

Ultrasonic vibrations remove fillers from gemstones that contain additives.

Use only recommended ultrasonic jewelry cleaning fluids.

Make sure your items are positioned so they don’t rub against each other or against the bottom and sides of the ultrasonic tank.

Do not leave jewelry unattended in an ultrasonic cleaner for long periods of time.

Polishing Precious Metal
You can purchase jeweler’s rouge cloth or velvet cloth from your local jeweler to brighten your jewelry.

These are soft cloths that contain mild polishing compounds and are used to brighten jewelry. The polishing material on the cloth isn’t abrasive enough to damage your gemstone or metal, but it will create a nice shine when rubbed hard on gold or silver.
Be sure to place the jeweler’s cloth in a dust-free container such as a plastic bag when you’re done.
