Jadeite jade is among the toughest of gemstones however it is still a gemstone. These figurines are so unique and delicate, they need to be well cared for. At Tranquil, all of our necklaces display Jadeite pieces whereas our bracelets are made with a variety of different jade types from all over the world. We will provide you with a clear understanding of how to care for all of your pieces, starting with jade pendant pieces. The care for your jade is quiet simple.
How to Clean Jade Pieces
The proper way to clean jade can simply be done in the luxury of your own home. Create a solution with mild soap and warm water, then mix thoroughly. We recommend using a soft bristled toothbrush for cleaning the crevices within carvings and settings. Keep in mind, you want to still try to minimize the exposure of your jade jewelry to water. After cleaning, dry immediately and polish with a microfiber cloth. Most common jewelry cleaner techniques can cause problems due to the standard wax applied to all jade after polishing.
What Not to Do With Your Jade
If you ever take your jade to a jeweler, please remind them to never steam jade. We recommend removing your jade before swimming in a chlorine treated pool, the ocean, showering or soaking in a hot tub. If you are a gardener or work with similar conditions, please remove your jade before working with dirt and soil. The quartz dust in soil is a powerful abrasive.
Our Jade Bracelets Care Guide
Just as our jade necklace pieces, you want to remove your bracelets before coming in contact with water. You also want to remove your bracelet before engaging in any activities that can possible cause the string in your bracelet to break. All types of jade from different parts of the world are still jade, so they can all follow this care guide. If cleaning is needed, you should follow the technique above. After rinsing and thoroughly drying your bracelet, polish it to keep its luster. Unlike a necklace, underneath the beads of a bracelet is string holding them together. Although they are made to withstand an immense amount of time, the circumstances tell how long they last. Please be gentle with your jade bracelets to prevent them from breaking and providing them with a long lasting life.
Don’t knock it Against Hard Surfaces
In order to keep your jade in good condition with a beautiful appearance, be aware of how you wear it. If it is a necklace, it could knock against the edge of something, causing it to crack or break. Make sure you store your jade figurine in a safe place where it won’t fall. Banging any jade stone into other hard objects can permanently damage the piece. If your jade is rare, you will want to do anything you can to protect it. As a high-quality retailer, we at Tranquil feel it is very important to know how to take care of jade jewelry.
