You don't want to take off your favorite items when you're swimming in the sea or pool and you're wondering whether they are waterproof and can withstand the salt or chlorine without being damaged
In principle, it is not necessary to take off your jewelry when swimming or sunbathing at the beach or pool. However, there are a few risks that we would like to mention. For example, silver can discolour due to oxidation. However, this always happens over time and is not particularly due to sun or water. Even the grains of sand on the most paradisiacal beach have the risk of leaving small scratches on your gold and silver jewellery. So best be a little careful. Especially when it comes to digging or building sand castles. In addition, you should always be extra careful in the water so that your beloved jewelry does not get lost.
It can therefore be said in general that robust materials such as gold or silver as well as synthetic diamonds are waterproof. So if you wear them while showering, washing your hands or walking on the beach, you don't have to worry because they withstand brief contact with water, sun or moisture on the skin without discoloring permanently. Our real jewelery is also not attacked by chlorine or salt water, which is why you don't have to worry about that either.
However, real jewelry can also become dull over time, silver jewelry can tarnish and scratches can occur. You should therefore always ensure that your jewelry is properly cared for and cleaned.
It is helpful if you take care to select high-quality pieces of jewelry with the highest possible gold or silver content, which have cleanly processed clasps and settings. Avoid jumping into the water with jewelry that is too filigree, as brackets or delicate soldering points can give way and stones can come loose or clasps can open. You should also make sure that rings, for example, fit well: in the course of extensive sunbathing, your fingers can swell, so that tightly fitting rings quickly press uncomfortably, while the opposite effect can occur when swimming and you run the risk of losing your ring if your fingers become narrower.
In order to prevent sunscreen, sand or salt residue from being deposited in the jewelry, causing scratches or robbing your jewelry of its shine, you should always ensure extensive care and cleaning after your day at the beach.
