If you dislike cleaning, you're not alone. Only 1% of jewelry owners felt they knew how to properly care for their jewelry, according to a Jewelers Mutual Group survey.
Whether your client received jewelry as a gift or has had a piece for decades, make sure that cleaning and caring for their jewelry is on their spring cleaning checklist. Keeping their jewelry safe is important too.
Provide them tips on when to take their jewelry off to prevent loss or damage. The survey found that 60% of respondents do not remove their engagement ring while washing their hands and over 50% of respondents do not remove their engagement rings while showering.
Here's why your clients should be taking their rings off during these times:
- When you wash your hands: Cool temperatures can cause your fingers to shrink, creating room for your ring to slip off. You may not even notice and now you're searching ways to get your ring out of the drain.
- When you are showering: Although your favorite body wash or shampoo may seem harmless, it could cause grimy buildup on or even contribute to deterioration of your ring.
Additional information on cleaning and caring for jewelry is available in Jewelers Mutual's Cleaning and Care Guide.
In addition to cleaning, spring is a great time to remind clients to take inventory of their jewelry collection and insure any pieces they may have unprotected.
