Jewellery cleaning tips
Care tips for jewellery
We have put together the most important care tips and tricks here.
Minor soiling can be easily removed from costume jewellery with soap and water. We do, however, recommend using a cotton or microfibre cloth if you are cleaning your delicate costume jewellery yourself. Small details can be additionally reworked using a toothbrush.
Genuine jewellery will naturally lose its lustre over time and become duller. We recommend having it cleaned professionally by a jeweller once a year.
Jewellery made of gold only, without gems, pearls or crystals can be easily cleaned in a bowl with lukewarm water and a little dish-washing liquid. Leave the gold to soak in the bowl for a short while. It can then be rinsed with clean water and dried with a soft cloth.
Silver can tarnish over time. The so-called black patina can be cleaned in soapy water. Stains can be removed easily with a silver or microfibre cloth and a silver cleaning paste.
Stainless steel jewellery is very easy to care for. Use a gentle microfibre cloth or a precious metal care cloth for glossy surfaces. Major soiling can best be removed with cotton wool. Your jewellery will look like new and regain its original lustre in just a few minutes.
Jewellery with gemstones should be kept away from any chemical agents and soaps. The gemstones can be cleaned in water and any remaining dirt can then be gently removed. We recommend using a soft cloth for final rework.
Don't put on your pearl jewellery until after you have applied your make-up, creams and perfume. Any make-up residue can be wiped off the pearls with a moist soft cloth. Make sure to avoid your jewellery coming into contact with chemicals while gardening or doing housework. Excessive heat and moisture should also be avoided.
A watch is a timeless accessory and is exposed to many types of soiling when it is worn regularly. Any rough cleaning agents or those with chlorine content should be avoided in the care of the sensitive metal parts. They could cause scratches in the plating or the glass face. Please only use a lint-free and slightly moistened cloth. Use a toothpick to remove residual soiling in the grooves.
