How to clean your jewelry properly

Taking care of your jewelry is very important because overtime almost every piece of jewelry becomes dull. Regular cleaning and proper storage are what your jewelry needs. In this article, we'll tell you ways to take care of your beloved jewelry. 


We recommend that you clean your jewelry as it becomes soiled. We also recommend that you clean your jewelry every week with a soft cloth to remove dust.


Cleaning with a soft brush

This method does not require any special knowledge or tools. You will only need a soft toothbrush. Before using the brush to clean the product, you need to soften the dirt that is on the product. To do this, we recommend making a solution of water and dishwashing liquid or soap. Dip your product in the solution for 10-15 minutes, and then lightly rub it with a brush. Do not be too fussy, the cleaning should be very gentle so that the oxide does not rub off the jewelry. After the procedure, you can wipe the item with a napkin or a soft cloth and leave it to dry completely. 

Cleansing with special products

Another way to clean jewelry is to use jewelry polishes. Such products dissolve dirt from silver and gold jewelry. However, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with the contents of such products and follow the instructions carefully. This is important because some stones may be damaged by the chemicals in the cleaner.

You can also use special wipes for jewelry. Such wipes are suitable for removing non-serious dirt and can be used regularly to remove dust. 

Cleansing stones in jewelry

Stones may require more frequent care than a sterling silver setting. If possible, wipe the stone in your piece every week to keep it smooth and dust-free.

We recommend that you familiarize yourself with the description of the stone in your piece so that you can perform the cleaning procedure correctly. For example, opals and pearls cannot be placed in water, so other cleaning methods should be used.

How to clean your jewelry properly

What should I avoid when cleaning jewelry?

In order not to spoil the jewelry, you need to be careful and follow a few simple rules:

1. You should not use hot water to cleanse
Hot water can damage the mineral in the piece. For example, emeralds, sapphires, amethysts, etc. may crack from hot water. It is better to use lukewarm water.

 2. Do not use any harsh chemicals.
These chemicals may cause serious damage to the items: the stone may lose all color and the silver may become dull. The safest solution is a soapy solution or a solution with dishwashing liquid.

3. Do not use a hard brush or sponge.
A hard sponge or bristle brush can seriously damage the metal of which your jewelry is made. Try to avoid such materials. It's better to use a soft cloth and a soft toothbrush for children.

Professional cleaning of your products

The methods we have described can be used at home and performed by anyone. You can also go to the store where you bought the jewelry. Usually, the stores provide a warranty for the repair and cleaning of products. The jeweler will be able to clean the piece most gently and professionally with a special technique. This cleaning will be of good quality and you will not have to worry about the jewelry.

How often should I clean the product?

There is no universal time limit, it will all depend on how carefully you wear the piece and how often you wear it. We recommend that you clean your jewelry as it becomes soiled. We also recommend that you clean your jewelry every week with a soft cloth to remove dust.


Taking good care of your jewelry is all about prolonging the life of your favorite pieces. You only need to follow a few simple steps and rules to keep your rings, earrings, and bracelets looking their best.
