When jewellery oxidizes, it can look dull and discoloured, which can be frustrating. Here are some tips on what you can do to restore your jewellery:
Clean it with a soft cloth: Use a soft, clean cloth to wipe the jewellery and remove any surface dirt or debris. Avoid using rough cloths, as they can scratch the jewellery and make the oxidation worse.
Use a polishing cloth: A polishing cloth is a specially treated cloth that can remove tarnish and oxidation from jewellery. Gently rub the jewellery with the cloth until it shines.
Soak it in vinegar: If your jewellery is heavily oxidized, you can soak it in white vinegar for a few hours. After soaking, rinse the jewellery with water and dry it with a soft cloth.
Use baking soda: Make a paste with baking soda and water and apply it to the jewellery. Gently rub it in, then rinse with water and dry with a soft cloth.
Take it to a jeweller: If your jewellery is valuable or delicate, you may want to take it to a jeweller for professional cleaning and restoration.
Remember, prevention is key to keeping your jewellery from oxidizing. Store your jewellery in a cool, dry place, and avoid exposing it to moisture or harsh chemicals.
