How to Clean Your Jewelry

If spring cleaning doesn't sound like much fun to you, start with your jewelry to get it as sparkling as the first time you wore it. Everyday routines, like applying perfume, lotion or makeup, eating a greasy burger or sweating on the treadmill, affect the shine of your jewelry, so don't be surprised if you look at that milgrain detailing on your favorite gold ring and notice some serious gunk or if your sterling silver dot studs have just lost their luster.

Here are some tips for how to clean your collection gently and thoroughly using our jewelry cleaning kit. Remember - do not clean your jewelry over a drain or sink. It's best to clear a spot at a table and take a few minutes to focus on the task to avoid losing precious items. 

For pendants, earrings and rings, pour some jewelry cleaning solution onto a gentle cleaning cloth (we love the treated cleaning cloths included in our jewelry cleaning kit) to rub your jewelry vigorously! If you are cleaning it right, you should be able to see the grime coming off onto the cloth, which is the best part, so use that elbow grease. 

To clean diamonds, it's as simple as Dawn dish soap and a soft toothbrush! Let the piece sit in a bowl of lukewarm water with a few drops of soap. Then gently scrub the stone and surrounding metal. Be sure to get the underside of the diamond to clean all those facets and bring back the shine. You can also use a bling brushWhile you're at it, we recommend getting your prongs checked once a year to maintain safety and long-term wear! 

Keep in mind, it's best to get your diamond band or ring professionally cleaned once a year as well. Anyone who has purchased a diamond ring from us, can stop by our flagship and receive complimentary cleaning any time. 



To clean necklace chains, we strongly recommend that you soak your chains in jewelry cleaning solution, like the bottle included in our kit, or get them professionally cleaned at a jewelry shop. If you want to soak them, make sure that you gently rub them with the polishing cloth after. Be careful not to pull on them too tight.

That's all there is to it! Remember - 

Check back throughout the spring for more jewelry cleaning tips pertaining to specific metals.

Diamonds are a girl's best friend, a guy's biggest splurge and the timeless symbol of priceless love.

The Channel 4 I-Team went undercover at Genesis Diamonds, perhaps the best-known jewelry store in Nashville.

St. Patrick's Day

"...I was like a stone lying in the deep mire; and He that is mighty came and in His mercy lifted me up, and raised me aloft, and placed me on the top of the wall. And therefore I ought to cry out aloud and so also render something to the Lord for His great benefits here and in eternity---benefits which the mind of men is unable to appraise."

How to Style Your Nightstand

Nightstands are tricky business - very small real estate that should be well-styled and functional. They can get cluttered so easily with books and lamps and jewelry and picture frames and knick knacks,but if we can help it, we'd prefer to keep them super simple and super pretty - all with the help of ring cones and dishes and swoon-worthy candles.

Ranger Station Candle / Small Pop Co. Ring Cone / Rosanna Fancy Another? Ring Dish

Plenty of space for a cup of coffee by morning and abook or journal by night. We love ring dishes for corralling necklaces, earrings and beyond - think pocket change or last weekend's movie ticket. 

As for light, a large lamp on a nightstand can take up a lot of precious real estate. To keep the nightstand minimal, we opted for a Ranger Station candle for a little light and a lot of ambiance and a directional floor lamp that still allows for reading in bed.

And ring cones are just adorable. The perfect home away from home for your favorite rings with some variety in height to keep the entire vignette interesting to the eye. These cones by local Nashville maker Small Pop Co. are a fun explosion of pattern and color. Bonus - they're made from clay and resin so they're almost impossible to break, which is perfect for blindly swatting at your alarm clock in the dark.

Tuesday Truths 18 / Zephaniah 3:17

He will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing. Zephaniah 3:17

The struggle within us to search for praise / love / approval comes to an end when we remember that in Christ the Creator already rejoices over us gladly, soothes us lovingly and sings over us loudly. Amen.
