Jewellery Care

In this guide, we'll cover how to clean your jewellery and tips to help them last longer. We all love our pieces, and taking a few extra steps as precaution can prolong its life, and keep them shiny for longer! We recommend cleaning your pieces once a month to keep them in great shape. 

Preventative care

Gold filled jewellery is great for everyday wear, but keeping it away from any harsh chemicals will help prolong its lifetime, colour and shine.  Things to keep your jewellery away from include:

  • Perfumes, hairspray, skincare, lotion, hand sanitiser and sunscreen 
  • We also recommend removing your jewellery before doing high impact physical exercise
  • Never subject any jewellery to the harsh chemicals found in pools, cleaning products, and some personal hygiene products. This can discolour and strip the jewellery leaving a darkened appearance. 

It isn’t the end of the world if you have accidentally done any of the above a few times as your pieces are very durable, but following these guidelines will help your pieces last longer. If it comes into contact chemicals, rinse off the pieces with water and pat dry.

How to care for gold filled jewellery

We recommend washing your pieces every so often with mild soap, warm water, and dry with a soft cloth. A polishing cloth is included with all orders if you need to give your pieces a shine. When your jewellery is not being worn, make sure to store your jewellery in a dry and sealed place such as the pouch it came in or a jewellery case. This is to avoid moisture and keep pieces from rubbing against metals or getting tangled.

  • Use mild soap with lukewarm water and soak your piece in the solution for 5 minutes. 
  • Gently scrub your piece with a soft bristled toothbrush or with your fingers. Make sure to really focus on the areas with the most build-up.
  • Gently pat your piece dry with a soft cloth.
  • Rinse and repeat if needed. 

How to care for your pearls

To prevent any build-up of oils or other substances, use a soft cotton cloth to wipe your pearls regularly. If your pearls are visibly stained, you can mix the same solution of lukewarm water and mild dish soap mentioned above. Don't submerge the pearls into water, but rather, dip a soft cloth in it and wipe the pearls then pat dry. 

For storage, pearls should be stored away from other objects or jewellery that may scratch their surfaces. You can keep the pearls in the original jewellery pouch that came with the order, but don't store them in an airtight bag or box as pearls need moisture and it may lead to cracking.

Make sure to take your pearl jewellery off before any water based activities such as showering and swimming.
