Preserving the Sparkle of Your Treasures

Caring for your jewelry is crucial to maintaining its beauty and longevity. At Jose Galicia, we understand that each piece is not just an accessory but a cherished keepsake. Follow our guide to care for different materials and keep your jewelry looking as stunning as the day you received it.

General Care Tips

Preserving Your Jewelry's Luster:

  • Storage: Store your jewelry in a velvet-lined jewelry box or in soft padding to prevent scratches.
  • Avoid Chemicals: Remove your jewelry when using harsh chemicals, cleaning agents, or applying beauty products.
  • Regular Cleaning: Gently wipe your jewelry with a soft cloth after each wear to remove oils and dirt.

Silver Jewelry

Maintaining Shine and Preventing Tarnish:

  • Use a silver cleaning cloth to polish your silver jewelry. This will help remove tarnish and restore its natural shine.
  • For deeper cleaning, use mild soap and warm water. Rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth.
  • Store silver in anti-tarnish bags or with anti-tarnish strips to slow the tarnishing process.

Gold Jewelry

Ensuring Lasting Brilliance:

  • Clean gold jewelry with a solution of warm water and a few drops of mild dish soap. Soak for a few minutes, then gently brush with a soft-bristle brush.
  • Rinse thoroughly under warm running water and dry with a soft cloth.
  • Avoid exposing gold jewelry to chlorine and other harsh chemicals.


Keeping the Sparkle Alive:

  • Use a soft, damp cloth to clean gemstone jewelry. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials.
  • Be cautious with ultrasonic cleaners as they can damage certain gemstones.
  • Store gemstone jewelry separately to avoid scratches.

Stainless Steel

Durable and Easy to Care For:

  • Clean stainless steel jewelry with warm water and mild dish soap. You can use a soft brush for hard-to-reach areas.
  • Rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth.
  • Stainless steel is more resistant to tarnish and corrosion, making it easier to care for.


Retaining Its Sophisticated Sheen:

  • Clean platinum jewelry with a mixture of mild soap and warm water. Use a soft brush to gently remove any dirt.
  • Dry with a clean, soft cloth.
  • Store separately to prevent scratches, as platinum can be scratched more easily than other metals.


Gentle Care for Delicate Beauty:

  • Wipe pearls with a soft, dry or damp cloth after wearing to remove body oils and residue.
  • Never use harsh cleaners or soak pearls in water, as this can damage their luster.
  • Store pearls in a soft cloth away from other jewelry items.

Professional Cleaning and Inspections

For Lasting Perfection:

  • We recommend having your jewelry professionally cleaned and inspected once a year, especially for pieces that are worn regularly.

Jewelry Care Products

Essential Tools for Maintenance:

  • Consider investing in quality jewelry cleaning cloths, polishing solutions, and a soft-bristle brush designed specifically for jewelry care.
