Jewellery Care

CARING FOR YOUR GOLD JEWELLERY

A simple method of cleaning your gold jewellery is to use warm water and a mild detergent (used for dish washing), and a very soft brush to gently clean the items while they were in the water. Next step, gently dry it with a soft lint-free cloth or tissue.
You should also have your jewellery checked by a qualified jeweller at least once a year for loose prongs-claws, worn mountings and general wear.

Do have it Professionally cleaned periodically. Between visits to your jeweller, it's important that you check your jewellery pieces each time you wear them, just look them over for any wear or damage, such as clasps that are not fastening securely, prongs-claws that may be cracked, bent or loosened, and chains that may be kinked.

  • Remove your gold jewellery when using chemicals and engaging in manual work like in the garden and doing dishes. Gold will scratch abrade reducing its lustrous appearance.
  • Remove your gold jewellery when swimming – Chlorine and other chemicals will affect its lustre.
