How Often Should I Clean My Art Deco Sapphire Earrings?

You’ve undoubtedly had your ears pierced for a long time. You’ve gone through the process of caring for your pierced ears and being cautious not to touch the earrings with unclean hands, and now everything is healed. Not only may you change your earrings as often as you like, but you also don’t have to clean them anymore, right?

Almost! To be more specific…

Wounds following piercing can take up to 12 months to fully heal and be fairly protected against infection and allergies – just like normal healthy skin. Even after the piercing has healed fully, you should maintain a regular art deco sapphire earrings cleaning practice. Not cleaning your earrings on a regular basis might result in dirty, infected holes because unclean earrings transfer germs into your piercing. Furthermore, dirt and dust might cause your lovely studs to lose their luster and become discolored.

So, when should you clean your earrings?

  1. Before wearing them

After a long day, most folks remove their earrings and place them in their jewelry box, where they continue to gather dust, filth, and bacteria. Cleanse your earrings with running water and uncolored liquid detergent before wearing them the next morning.

For a deeper clean (for metal earrings, not medical plastic), dab a little cotton ball with hydrogen peroxide or alcohol and wipe the whole surface of the earrings. Strong cleaning solutions and alcohol are not recommended for buccellati earrings because they can cause the medical plastic to become brittle, discolored, and delicate.

  1. Weekly cleaning

Whether you wear your earrings every day or not, keeping them clean will keep the shine and germs at bay. Remove your earrings and soak them for 20 minutes in a mix of warm water and uncolored liquid cleanser.

Clean them with a gentle toothbrush and rinse with clean water. To dry, wrap them in a clean cotton towel. While hydrogen peroxide is the most effective at eradicating bacteria, it can also cause harm to your buccellati earrings (particularly softer metals like gold), so using an uncolored liquid soap may be a better alternative.

  1. Clean the earring holes too

Earring holes are such a little part of our anatomy that no one notices them. Unfortunately, much like your face, your ears absorb all of the dirt from the outdoors and everything in your hair. Cleaning the earrings is insufficient if you fail to remove the germs from the holes. At the very least, once a week, thoroughly clean your ears with liquid soap and running water while taking a shower.

If you still have the art deco sapphire earrings that your expert provided you after the piercing, use them to clean the holes before putting on the earrings for convenience.

That’s all! You’re on your way to a healthy, infection-free jewelry-wearing routine!

  1. Clean fresh piercing

As a reminder, if you have just had your ears pierced, you should clean the holes and the earrings twice a day. Because a new wound is more prone to bacterial infection, it must be kept as clean as possible. During a shower, thoroughly clean your ears with liquid soap and flowing water.

We provide art deco sapphire earrings for simple application if you are hesitant of touching the newly pierced holes when cleaning. The swabs easily remove germs and debris from the whole surface and earrings without introducing new bacteria from your hands. Remove the piercing earrings only when the holes have healed, which can take six to twelve weeks.

If, despite following these recommendations, you still suffer minor irritation, soreness, or pain in your ears, this might be due to nickel allergy, which affects around a quarter of the population.

How to Perform Regular Earring Cleaning Ritual

Most jewelry stores provide ready-made cleaning solutions, and while they are not very costly, there are less expensive options available to you.

By far the most common and widely available cleaning chemicals are rubbing alcohol and hydrogen peroxide. Both are effective disinfectants, and any excess that does not wash away will evaporate fast. When hydrogen peroxide is exposed to air, it degrades to a simple water solution; therefore there are little potential side effects or skin responses.
