Jewellery Care Guide


Evergreen Gold

Gold - Nothing can beat the appeal of this precious metal. Every woman loves to flaunt her Gold ornaments. But have you ever thought of that these delicate yet beautiful pieces need care too ! Gold is lasting and durable but can get scratched or dented if treated roughly. Furthermore, with regular wear, your gold Jewellery will eventually accumulate a film of soap, body oils and even grease. If treated carefully, the gold Jewellery item you purchase today could last a lifetime and might even be handed down to future generations.

Gold is not hard to clean, but the exact cleaning method you choose should depend on whether your gold jewelery have gemstones or not. So here are some tips that will help preserve the beauty of your gold Jewellery.


Wearing Jewellery

  • It is recommended not to put on jewelery during performing the tasks which may cause mishap or damage to the Jewellery.
  • Don’t wear Jewellery in swimming pools and spas because chlorinated water can react with the metals found in Jewellery causing color changes and even structural damage. As a result it's a good idea to remove Jewellery before entering the pool or spa.
  • Put Jewellery On After Applying Makeup because Cosmetics, hairspray, perfumes and lotion can contain chemicals that can often damage Jewellery. Putting Jewellery on after applying these materials will limit exposure to Jewellery and any potential damage.
  • While taking off, wipe each piece of jewel with clean cloth for removing sweating and oil.

Cleaning Jewellery

  • In a large bowl, mix 2 parts dish soap and 10 parts warm water.
  • Soak Jewellery for 3 hours, then gently scrub with a soft, clean toothbrush. (This method is also safe for any pieces with diamonds.) If Jewellery is delicate design and embellished with diamond and other precious stone, recommended to clean it gently with toothbrush.
  • Rinse in hot water.
  • Dry thoroughly with a soft cloth or microfiber cloth, then polish with a Jewellery cloth (available at most Jewellery stores).
  • Repeat as often as needed. And rejoice, squeaky-clean types: You can’t over-clean gold. Rubbing alcohol can work wonders, but bleach can literally destroy Jewellery so avoid it at all costs.

Storing Jewellery

  • Store your Jewellery in a container and prevent pieces from moving around for which fabric-lined Jewellery boxes are ideal.
  • To maintain the luster of your Jewellery, place silver anti-tarnish strips in your storage container to absorb the oxidants that discolor and tarnish Jewellery.
  • Taking a regular inventory can be incredibly useful when making an insurance claim or filing a police report. A photograph, a written physical description of each piece and it's cost is ideal. Furthermore, store that information apart from your Jewellery in the event it is taken too.
  • Traveling can be tough on Jewellery, so it's wise to use a travel case to protect your favorite pieces. Traditionally made of fabric or leather, a Jewellery travel case can carry Jewellery of all types and easily rolls up to a size that's easily stored in most suitcases, makeup cases or business attaches.
