Should I Be Cleaning Jewellery?

From everyday pieces to statement items that you wear on special occasions, your jewellery may need looking after from time to time. But how should you be cleaning your jewellery in order to avoid damaging it?

In this jewellery care guide, we're going to take a look at the do's and don'ts of cleaning jewellery, as well as the difference that buying high-quality jewellery can make to your jewellery care routine.

If you want to keep your pieces looking their best for longer and ensure you can continue wearing them for years to come, this guide is for you.

Cleaning Gold & Silver

Cleaning Gold

When it comes to cleaning gold jewellery, don't use any artificial solutions! We recommend using our Monica Vinader polishing cloth to clean your gold jewellery and remove any built-up dirt. This polishing cloth is available on request. All that you need to do is rub the piece in one direction to wipe away any grime.

Cleaning Silver

Silver polish can be used to clean silver jewellery. The ingredients in a good quality silver polish will help to dissolve the tarnish and also provide it with a protective coating. Cleaning silver jewellery is simple once you know how.

Cleaning your jewellery on a regular basis will keep it looking brand new. But how you clean each piece is important, as certain metals and gemstones need to be cleaned with specific solutions to protect them from damage.

Firstly, try to remember to remove your rings when washing your hands, cleaning the house or applying beauty products, as this will keep the settings free from dirt and grime.
Likewise, don't wear your jewellery when you're swimming as chlorine and saltwater can damage it and leave it looking dull.
If you have items with gemstones or pearls in them, you should wipe them with a soft cloth after wearing them to remove any oils or perfume from the surface.
he higher-quality jewellery you buy, the longer it will retain its stunning appearance. Cheaper materials tend to break more easily and also show signs of wear much more quickly than high-quality jewellery. In addition to the durability and longevity of high-quality jewellery, there's also the appearance to consider. Cheap jewellery doesn't shine as well as high-quality pieces, meaning it may give off a dull look and provide no benefit to your overall style. If you want to invest in jewellery that you can continue to wear for years and even pass down to future generations, it pays to invest in higher quality items.
