Take Care Of Your Jewellery – A Basic Guide

For those that wear jewellery regularly, keeping your jewellery clean and looking good requires regular effort. Here are some general guidelines that may help:

How To Take Care Of Your Jewellery

    • Remove Your Jewellery Before Bathing
      Remove all jewellery before showering or cleaning. Soap can cause a film to form, making it appear dull and dingy. By preventing the formation of this film you immediately reduce the occasions of servicing.

How To Clean Your Jewellery

    • Use Jewellery Polishing Cloths for Best Results
      Using jewellery polishing cloths to take care of your Jewellery is really the best practise. Polish silver or gold with a jewellery polishing cloth gives you the best results. You can use a svelte or very soft cloth, but the professional cloths are the best. Using tissue or paper towels can cause scratches due to the fibres in the material.

    • Clean Your Jewellery With Care 
      Cleaning your own jewellery regularly can keep it looking good. You can purchase commercial jewellery cleaners or you make a cleaning solution yourself. NEVER use any type of corrosive solutions on your Jewellery eg) Bleach, Clorox etc
    • Use Warm Water to Clean Jewellery 
      Using warm water is best when cleaning your own jewellery. Hot water can cause reactions with cleaning fluids that can damage your jewellery. It might cause it to discolour. Sterling Silver is especially susceptible to this problem.

    • Avoid Cleaning Damaged Jewellery 
      Never clean any jewellery in areas that are visibly damaged, cracked or broken. Cleansing solutions can worsen the damaged area, so be extra careful when cleaning damaged Jewellery.
    • Inspect Your Jewellery Regularly
      Just like anything else, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Make sure you store your Jewellery properly, clean it carefully and never expose it to chemicals directly…and that includes spraying Perfume on it! Follow these above basic guidelines and your jewellery should last you a very long time!


How to Store Your Jewellery

    • Your jewellery should be the last thing you put on in the morning and the first thing you take off at night. That way, your necklace won’t get spritzed with perfume and your earrings won’t get caught in your clothes. To prevent scratches and tangles, separate pieces on velvet-lined trays, in boxes with compartments, or in small zipper plastic bags.
