How to Keep Your Jewelry Safe During the Summer: Five Essential Tips

Scarlet Angel

Summer brings sunny days and outdoor activities, but it can also pose a challenge for taking care of your jewelry. With these five tips, you can keep your pieces in good condition throughout the season.

1. Avoid Contact with Personal Care Products

Remove your jewelry when washing your face, using skincare products, applying sunscreen, lotion, or perfume. The chemicals and oils in these products can damage the metal and dull your pieces.

2. Protect Your Rings During Exercise

When working out, especially when lifting weights, make sure to remove your rings. The strain and contact with equipment can damage or deform them.

3. Don’t Swim with Your Jewelry

The chlorine used in pools can damage the structure of metals like gold and silver.

4. Keep Away from Sand and Saltwater

Saltwater and sand can scratch or harm your jewelry. It’s better to store them in a safe place before going to the beach. They can also fall off and get lost while swimming in the ocean. 

5. Choose the Right Jewelry for Each Activity

Gold is more resistant than silver, and it’s better to avoid plated pieces as sweat can affect them. If you decide to wear jewelry with gems, choose the hardest and most resistant ones, such as ruby (the birthstone of the month), sapphire, or diamond.

Travel Jewelry Recommendations from PAAR

Packing for a summer trip? The key to traveling light is to pack versatile clothing and accessories that can work for both day and night, and that don’t take up much space in your suitcase.

Here are some of our recommendations:

Although it's generally not recommended to swim or expose your jewelry to chemicals like chlorine, perfume, or sunscreen, sometimes we forget to take them off. For summer, the ideal pieces are those made from 14k gold or 925 silver, as they are less likely to tarnish or fade. If you want to add a bit of sparkle and color to your jewelry, we recommend using pieces with harder gems like diamonds, rubies, or sapphires.
