Spring Cleaning Your Jewelry Collection: Tips and Tricks

March 13th, 2024

Spring is the perfect time to declutter and organize your belongings, including your jewelry collection. Over the years, we accumulate pieces we no longer wear, forget about hidden gems we already own, and neglect to properly care for our precious jewelry. Spring cleaning your jewelry collection can help bring new life to your pieces and help you fall in love with them all over again.

Take inventory of your jewelry collection

The first step to spring cleaning your jewelry collection is to inventory what you have. Gather all your jewelry in one spot and categorize them based on type, such as necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings. Take note of pieces that are missing stones, broken, or need repairs.

Eliminate what you no longer wear

Now that you have a clearer picture of what you have, it's time to eliminate pieces that no longer serve you. Ask yourself if you still love a particular piece or if it fits your style. If the answer is no, it's time to let it go. Consider selling, donating, or gifting pieces that are still in good condition. For jewelry items, including gold pieces, that you no longer wear, Medawar's can help. They buy gold and can assist with any items you don't wish to keep anymore. 

Deep clean and repair

After eliminating pieces you no longer wear, it's time to deep clean and repair them. Get rid of tarnish and dirt using a jewelry cleaner or a mild soap and water. Make sure to dry your pieces properly and check for any flaws. If you notice missing stones or broken pieces, bring your jewelry to Medawar's for repairs. 

Reorganize your jewelry

Now that your jewelry is clean and repaired, it's time to reorganize. Consider investing in a jewelry box or a hanging organizer to keep your pieces safe and in good condition. You can also sort them by color or material to help you quickly find what you need. Remember to store delicate pieces separately to avoid tangling or damage. 

Plan new ways to wear your jewelry

Finally, it's important to plan new ways to wear your jewelry. Mix and match pieces to create new styles and pair them with fresh outfits for the new season. You could also try layering necklaces or stacking bracelets for a chic look. Experiment and have fun with your collection!

Spring cleaning your jewelry collection can be a fun and rewarding process.
