Caring for Your Permanent Jewelry: Tips and Tricks


Permanent jewelry is a beautiful and lasting way to make a statement, but it requires care to maintain its luster and durability. At Mavka Jewelry, we believe in helping our customers enjoy their pieces for a lifetime. Here, we share essential tips and tricks for caring for your permanent jewelry.

Understanding Permanent Jewelry Materials:

Permanent jewelry is typically made from high-quality materials like gold, sterling silver, and sometimes platinum. These materials are chosen for their durability and resistance to everyday wear.

Daily Care and Maintenance:

  1. Gentle Cleaning: Regular cleaning is vital to keep your jewelry shining. Use mild soap and warm water to clean your gold and silver pieces. For intricate designs, a soft-bristled brush can help remove any dirt lodged in crevices.

  2. Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Be mindful of exposing your jewelry to harsh chemicals found in cleaning products, chlorine, and certain cosmetics. These can tarnish or damage the metal over time.

  3. Regular Checks: Although permanent jewelry is designed to be durable, it's wise to periodically check for any signs of wear or damage, especially in the welding points.

Special Considerations for Sterling Silver:

Sterling silver can tarnish over time. To maintain its shine, occasionally polish your silver jewelry with a silver cleaning cloth. If tarnishing occurs, a silver polish can restore its original luster.

Managing Exposure to Elements:

Permanent jewelry can withstand most daily activities, including showering and swimming. However, prolonged exposure to salt water or chlorinated water can affect the metal. It's advisable to rinse your jewelry with fresh water after such exposures.

Professional Care and Repairs:

If your permanent jewelry ever requires repair or adjustment, it's best to seek professional assistance. At Mavka Jewelry, we offer repair and maintenance services to ensure your piece remains as beautiful as the day you got it.


Caring for your permanent jewelry is straightforward and ensures your piece remains a beautiful symbol of your personal story for years to come. By following these simple care tips, you can protect and preserve the beauty and significance of your permanent jewelry.
