Jewellery Cleaning & Care
Ensure you keep your jewellery in perfect condition and longer lasting by following our cleaning and care guide below. Although we offer a professional cleaning service there are some simple ways to keep your precious metal and diamonds in great condition and sparkling for longer.
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR JEWELLERY
Ensure you remove your jewellery when applying beauty products such a make-up, moisturiser, body creams, hair products or perfumes.
Try not to soak or submerge your jewellery in sinks or baths with cleaning products added. This can damage and tarnish your jewellery over time.
If you swim regularly, it is better to remove your jewellery as chlorine can damage and tarnish your jewellery.
It is ideal to remove your jewellery when cooking or cleaning as small knocks can damage or dislodge stones and chemicals can discolour the metal and cause corrosion.
STORING YOUR JEWELLERY
Do not store or display your jewellery in direct sunlight as this can discolour and damage the metal.
Keep your jewellery away from damp or wet environments such as bathrooms to prevent tarnishing and corrosion.
Ensure chains are fastened to prevent tangling and damage.
Keep jewellery in a good quality jewellery box and separate each item to prevent scratching. If you don’t have a jewellery box, soft cloth will work well.
HOW TO CLEAN YOUR JEWELLERY AT HOME
Normal wear of your jewellery will pick up natural oil and skin deposits along with dirt and grime from soap, and skincare products. We would recommend getting us to professionally clean your jewellery every few years but there are simple ways you can restore precious metals and add sparkle to diamonds from the comfort of your own home.
STEP 1: FILL A BOWL WITH LUKEWARM WATER AND MILD WASHING UP
STEP 2: SOAK YOUR JEWELLERY FOR 10-15 MINUTES
STEP 3: USE A SOFT BRISTLED BRUSH TO LOOSEN ANY DIRT
STEP 4: CHECK DIAMONDS ARE SECURE AND NOTE ANY LOOSE OR DAMAGED STONES OR FIXINGS
STEP 5: RINSE IN CLEAN COLD WATER
STEP 6: CLEAN AND DRY WITH A LINT FREE CLOTH
