Care Guide Jewellery
With the proper care, your jewellery shine and its appearance will last longer.
Precious metals and natural materials will change over time, but we've gathered some tips on how to care for your jewellery and keep them for many years.
Clean your jewellery
Pour a small amount of mild soap into lukewarm water and use a small, soft toothbrush to clean your jewellery. Rinse in clean water and dry with a silver cloth.
Gold plated/gold vermeil, etc. And oxidized jewellery is more sensitive to cleaning. Gently clean with a very soft toothbrush or cloth. If you rub too intense, it may cause your gold plating to fade away.
If your silver jewellery has become dull, a silver-polishing cloth is a great tool to make it shiny again. However, it will not remove the scratches.
Store your jewellery
Store your jewellery away from direct sunlight, heat and moisture. The best way to store it is in a separate cloth pouch or box.
Never store your jewellery in a plastic bag, rubber or metal box, as this will make your jewellery tarnish faster.
Do not store your jewellery in the bathroom or other humid places.
Avoid hard rubbing, as it will eventually tear off your oxidized or gold plating (including gold-filled, which is extra plated layers).
So be gentle when you clean your jewellery - Always!
Hagerty jewellery cloth is soft and will not scratch or mark your jewellery. It is suitable for instantly removing dirt from rings, bracelets, pendants, necklaces, brooches and more.
Replace the cloth when it turns completely black, then it has fulfilled its purpose.
Hymness can't guarantee that the gold pleating or oxidized finish will last forever.
Gold pleated pieces and oxidized finishes are more fragile and will eventually lose their colour over time. How fast the finish will fade depends on multiple variables from exposure to chemical products in skincare, cleaning, your skin PH, sunlight, moisture and use.
Allow all perfume, lotions, or other body chemicals to dry before putting on your jewellery.
Avoid household chemicals, like bleach and ammonia, when swimming in chlorinated water, as these chemicals will tarnish the jewellery.
Avoid wearing your jewellery when swimming in the ocean and during sports as sweat and salty waters change the color.
