Adding big and bold fashion jewelry to your ensemble is an easy way to show off your inner sparkle, and it's all about that upscale look at an affordable price. Sometimes called costume jewelry, fashion jewelry requires special care to prevent damage and maintain a superb sparkle. For pieces that you only wear from time to time, we recommend cleaning these before storing them away; however, for pieces you wear more often, a good rule of thumb is to clean them monthly.
Because fashion jewelry often uses glue to keep all the beautiful details and pieces perfectly in place, you have to be extra careful during the cleaning process. Some fashion jewelry made with glass, beads or stones can be especially delicate. Before you begin cleaning, examine each piece for loose stones.
You will need the following items to start cleaning:
- One bowl of warm water
- Polishing cloth
- Soft, absorbent cloth
