Caring For Your Jewellery

How should silver jewellery be cared for?

Silver jewellery is prone to tarnishing over time. To prevent this, store your silver pieces in airtight containers or zip-lock bags to minimize exposure to air. Avoid contact with harsh chemicals such as perfumes, lotions, and cleaning agents, as they can accelerate tarnishing. When cleaning silver jewellery, use a soft cloth or a silver polishing cloth to gently remove any tarnish.

What about gold jewellery?

Gold jewellery is more resistant to tarnishing compared to silver. However, it still requires proper care. To clean gold jewellery, mix a few drops of mild dish soap with warm water. Soak the jewellery for a few minutes, then gently scrub with a soft brush. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry with a clean cloth. Avoid wearing gold jewellery while swimming in chlorinated water, as it can damage the metal.

How to care for plated jewellery?

Plated jewellery, such as gold-plated or silver-plated pieces, requires extra care as the plating can wear off over time. Avoid exposing plated jewellery to water, sweat, and chemicals. Remove plated jewellery before showering, swimming, or exercising. Clean plated jewellery with a soft cloth and avoid using abrasive materials or harsh chemicals.

What are some general tips for jewellery care?

Here are a few additional tips to keep in mind:

  • Remove jewellery before engaging in any physical activities or household chores.
  • Avoid storing different types of jewellery together to prevent scratching.
  • Regularly inspect your jewellery for loose stones or any signs of damage.
  • Consider getting your jewellery professionally cleaned and inspected annually.


Taking care of your silver, gold, and plated jewellery is crucial to preserve their beauty and value. By following these guidelines, you can ensure that your jewellery remains in excellent condition for years to come. Remember, proper care and maintenance will keep your precious pieces shining bright!
