Caring For Your Hand Stamped Jewelry : A Guide For Giving It a Facelift
As mentioned in my previous post, the best way to clean aluminum jewelry is with soap and water (Dawn dishwashing soap being my favorite). With a little wash down and a good polishing rub from a clean towel, your piece will shine like new.
As these aluminum cuffs are worn, especially if you are active, or if you swim or bathe while wearing them, the black on the lettering may dull or wear off.
The easiest and most effective way to make them stand out again is with a black sharpie pen…yes as sharpen pen.
This technique will work on any type of metal: silver, copper, brass, sterling.And is especially great for hand stamped rings as they have frequent exposure to soap and water.
Follow the directions below and your rings, bracelets, and necklaces can quickly and easily be restored to a like-new condition.
