There are many metal products in the world, not just silver accessories and Hawaiian jewelry, that have patterns engraved on them.
Many people who want to take care of the items they have purchased may wonder whether it is okay to do it themselves or whether it seems difficult to care for and maintain.
Metal engraving items can be polished efficiently and without sacrificing the atmosphere by keeping certain points in mind.
In this article, we will explain how to efficiently care for engraved items and what you should never do.
How to polish engraved jewelry and precautions
Unless you take extreme care such as suddenly sanding away scratches, you don't need to be very careful when caring for commonly available items with engravings.
Normally, a simple polishing using the polishing cloth will be sufficient to clean the surface.
However, the care method will vary depending on the type of engraving or metal engraving, and some products may lose their appearance if polished without checking thoroughly beforehand.
Even if you simply say that it is engraved, the textures vary widely.
If it is deeply engraved, such as the deep cut of Hawaiian jewelry or three-dimensional engraving or high engraving of metal engraving, there is little chance that it will lose its atmosphere even if it is polished a little strongly.
However, in the case of products that have been shaded using a method such as pointillism, the engraved pattern itself may disappear if you try to polish it with strong force.
First, check how the pattern is created on the engraving item you are cleaning.
Let's polish carefully
As a general rule, do not use force to polish items that have engravings on them.
If you are polishing the engraved metal surface yourself, you will need to polish it so that the corners do not get crushed.
The most common cause of failure when cleaning engraved accessories is polishing them all at once with electric tools or files you're not used to.
This can cause problems such as the pattern disappearing or becoming thinner.
Many of the jewelry sold at IMULTA are beautifully finished by engraving closely together to create shading.
Care should be taken when cleaning such jewelry and items, as the pattern will look completely different if the surface is scraped.
Do not use power tools to polish unless you are very experienced at polishing.
It is safe and recommended to polish frequently by hand
For accessories that are used on a daily basis, the main cause of dirt is dirt clogging the grooves of the engraved patterns.
Lightly loosen the dirt with lukewarm water and gently scrub with a soft toothbrush to remove the dirt.
If the product has a smoked pattern, rubbing it too hard may cause the smoke to peel off.
If you want to restore a certain level of shine, use a polishing cloth or a commercially available liquid polishing compound to clean it.
The easiest and safest way to polish engraved jewelry is by hand.
With regular care, your jewelry will take on a variety of expressions.
One way to enjoy it is to make it your own jewelry.
