      What Does it Mean When your Jewelry Says ".925"?

      Do you have a piece of jewelry that is stamped with a mark that says "925" and your wondering what it means?

      Is it just a random number or does it hold some significance in the world of jewelry? As it turns out, that small but mighty number is actually a mark of quality and authenticity. In order for a piece of jewelry to be labeled as sterling silver, it must contain at least 92.5% pure silver, with the remaining 7.5% being made up of other metals for added strength and durability. This .925 stamp is a symbol of the craftsmanship and care that goes into creating high-quality jewelry. So the next time you see that number on your favorite necklace or ring, you can be sure that you are wearing a piece of jewelry that is not only beautiful but also made to last. 

      "knowledge is power" and now you have the power to elevate your jewelry game. If you're looking for more pieces made of .925 material we have a great selection at XO Hanalei jewelry.

      Tarnish-Free Jewelry Maintenance: Dos and Don'ts

      Proper maintenance is key to keeping jewelry tarnish-free, but there are certain dos and don'ts that many people are not aware of. In this blog post, readers will learn the important tips and tricks for maintaining their jewelry's shine without causing any damage.

      Have you ever noticed that your once-shiny jewelry starts to lose its sparkle over time? With everyday wear and exposure to various elements, our precious pieces can quickly become dull and tarnished. But fear not, because in this article, we will dive into the art of cleaning jewelry and provide you with the tips and tricks to restore your jewels to their former glory. As fashion icon Coco Chanel once said, "A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls." And we couldn't agree more. So let's get started on how to care for and maintain your beloved jewelry.

       

      1: If you don't have the budget for solid gold choose 14k gold filled jewelry or 18k gold vermeil. 

      This type of jewelry is much better quality than gold plated jewelry or brass jewelry and does not tarnish as easily. If it does tarnish it is possible to clean it and here's how:

      - Buy a sunshine polishing cloth for jewelry and use it sparingly. 

      - For 14k gold filled jewelry use toothpaste and a damp cloth to gently buff away dull and darkened jewelry and the result will be shiny and almost like new. 

      - A few drops of dawn dish soap in a bowl of warm water does wonders for cleaning jewelry. 

       

      2: Keep your jewelry away from perfumes, makeup, lotion and any other harsh chemicals or cleaning products. 

      Did you know that the average woman spends over $3,000 on cosmetics and fragrances every year? Yet, despite the investment and care put into creating the perfect beauty routine, one small but common mistake could be causing lasting damage. We're talking about keeping jewelry away from makeup and perfumes. It may seem like a minor detail, but the effects can be major.

      Remove your jewelry if you plan on spritzing perfume or using lotion near it. You will thank us in the long run. 

       

      3: Remove your jewelry before entering pools or jacuzzis

      Are you guilty of wearing your favorite jewelry while taking a dip in the pool or relaxing in a jacuzzi? You're not alone. But did you know that this seemingly harmless habit can actually be damaging to both your jewelry and your health? In fact, according to a survey by the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals, 63% of pool and jacuzzi owners have reported damage to their jewelry due to exposure to chemicals and high heat.

       

      We hope these simple tricks and tips help you to keep your jewelry looking it's best! If you have any questions we are always here to help. You can email us: info@xohanalei.com
