Did you know that not all jewelry is waterproof?

The summer season is right around the corner and you know what that means: it’s time to spend more time in the great outdoors, whether it’s hitting the local trail for a hike, spending some time at the beach soaking in the sun or relaxing poolside in your own backyard. And with more time spent out in the sun and the surf comes the opportunity to wear your favorite pieces from day to night, whether it’s a cute bracelet or customized name jewelry.

But did you know that not all jewelry is waterproof? Unfortunately, most pieces can be damaged if you accidentally wear them into the pool, the water at the beach or even a quick shower or bath. However, there are plenty of waterproof jewelry options available out there if you know what to look for and where to look.

1. What is waterproof jewelry?

But before we talk about options, let’s talk about what waterproof jewelry is first. This unique type of jewelry is specifically designed to be resistant to the damage that can be caused by exposure to water.

At En Route, our entire collection of customized jewelry is carefully designed to be completely waterproof. These personalized pieces won’t tarnish, meaning that the beautiful gold we use to create each piece will not come off with day to day wear. In addition, it won’t change color and won’t leave your skin with a weird green tone. That way, you can wear your favorite personalized pieces everyday without having to worry.

2. How to care for waterproof jewelry

Although this type of jewelry naturally maintains its beautiful appearance both in and out of the water, it’s important to take care of it, too, to keep it as shiny as possible. Help maintain its amazing shine no matter when or where you wear it by gently wiping it with a damp cloth to clean the dust off of the surface afterwards.

As always, when not wearing your waterproof customized jewelry, it’s important to keep it safely and properly stored. Be sure to keep them in a secure container that is safe and dry to help maintain their shine and beautiful appearance.
