Read on to learn how to clean your dainty jewelry at home.

Cleaning Your 925 Sterling Silver:

While silver jewelry is more prone to tarnishing than dainty solid gold jewelry, there are a few ways to clean the tarnishing and prevent it from re-tarnishing. You can purchase silver polishes online that contain ingredients to help dissolve and remove any tarnish while protecting your pieces from tarnishing again. Sometimes a microfibre cloth is all you need, or we recommend a specific jewelry polishing cloth like this one here.

Cleaning Your Solid Gold Jewelry:

The best part about dainty solid gold jewelry is that it won’t tarnish, discolour or oxidize when getting wet, making it extremely easy to clean. 

  1. Add a few drops of dish soap to a shallow bowl of warm water. 
  2. Place your gold jewelry into the mixture to sit for about five minutes. 
  3. Mix the pieces around in the bowl. 
  4. Once the timer is done, pat them dry on a soft cloth or towel 
  5. If you have a soft toothbrush, you can gently brush over the pieces for optimal cleaning. 
  6. Rinse with warm water and a strainer for smaller pieces
  7. Buff dry with a soft cloth or towel

Cleaning Your Gemstones:

Restoring the sparkle to your diamonds, ruby’s or emeralds in a gold setting is easy. You can follow the exact instructions as cleaning your dainty solid gold jewelry, but instead, mix your dish soap with seltzer water. We recommend using a soft toothbrush to brush the stones after cleansing, rinse them with running water and then buff them dry.

Cleaning Your Pearls:

Pearls are precious and can quickly become dull or lose their lustre. Luckily, we’re here to help bring it back to life. Whether your pearls are clasped together with solid gold or not, NEVER soak them in water as this can cause them to break. Instead, lay them flat on a soft cloth or towel and take either a makeup brush or paintbrush and dip it into a mixture of warm water and shampoo. Gently rub each pearl with the brush, and then rinse them clean with a damp towel. Leave them to dry flat, and their lustre should return naturally.
