Jewellery Care

How to keep your Jewellery Clean and Shiny

Sterling Silver:

To maintain the brilliance of your sterling silver jewellery, regular cleaning is essential. Begin by gently wiping the piece with a soft cloth to remove any surface dirt or oils. For a deeper clean, create a mild solution of warm water and a gentle, non-abrasive soap. Dip a soft-bristled toothbrush into the solution and gently scrub the silver, paying attention to intricate details. Rinse thoroughly with water and pat dry with a clean cloth. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials, as they can damage the silver's surface.

Plated Jewellery:

Plated jewellery requires special care to preserve its lustrous appearance. Avoid exposing plated pieces to water, harsh chemicals, and excessive moisture. To clean, use a soft, lint-free cloth to gently buff the jewellery, removing any fingerprints or smudges. Avoid abrasive cleaning agents or rough materials that can scratch or wear off the plating. If necessary, lightly dampen the cloth with water or a mild cleaning solution specifically designed for plated jewellery. Remember to store plated pieces separately to prevent scratching or rubbing against other jewellery. plated jewellery will always fade away, if this does happen, contact me on so we can re do the plating 

Gold Jewellery:

Gold jewellery is renowned for its durability, but regular cleaning helps maintain its shine. Begin by preparing a mixture of warm water and mild dish soap. Soak the gold jewellery in the solution for a few minutes, allowing the soap to loosen any dirt or debris. Gently scrub the piece with a soft-bristled brush, focusing on intricate areas. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry with a clean cloth. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials, as they can damage the gold's surface. Additionally, store gold jewellery in separate compartments or soft pouches to prevent scratching.

Remember, regardless of the type of jewellery, it's advisable to remove it before engaging in activities that may cause damage, such as swimming, exercising, or using harsh cleaning products. By following these simple cleaning and care instructions, you can keep your jewellery looking radiant and ensure its longevity for years to come.
