People are used to protecting their skin from the sun’s rays in the summer by applying sun screen, but they aren’t usually as concerned with protecting their jewelry.

Intercept Silver & Jewelry Care Co. knows how easily jewelry can be damaged in the summertime while people are out having fun in the sun. That’s why we’ve provided you with a list of simple tips that will help keep you jewelry shining throughout the summer.

Cooling off is a common activity in the summer, however, chlorine from pools and salt water from the ocean are some of the easiest ways to damage your jewelry. Be sure to remove all of your jewelry before going swimming. Both chlorine and salt water erode most gemstone and precious metals like silver.

We alluded to the popularity of sun screen in the summer already, but this preventive measure can also be destructive toward jewelry. Applying sun screen and other lotions can damage your jewelry if they’re applied over the jewelry for convenience. Products like this will make jewelry look dull over time, so don’t forget to take off your jewelry before putting on sun screen.

Jewelry care and maintenance is another great way to keep jewelry looking pristine throughout the summer. Tarnish and corrosion prevention packaging from Intercept Silver & Jewelry Co. is a good example of steps you can take to keep your jewelry looking as good as new. Regularly having a jewelry cleaning cloth is also a wise idea in the summer.

Storage is also an important factor when taking care of your jewelry. Pick a clean, dry space to store your jewelry when you’re not wearing it and it should keep its shine. Besides a proper climate, also keeping jewelry in Intercept’s tarnish and corrosion prevention packaging while in storage will help keep it immaculate.
