How To Care For Handmade Jewellery

Understanding how to care for your handmade jewellery is simple with our straight-forward jewellery care guide.

We’re going to tell you how to clean your pieces, store them, and keep them in shipshape condition.

How To Clean Your Handmade Jewellery

You only need a few simple household essentials to clean your jewellery at home. A soft cotton cloth, a soft toothbrush, baking soda, and some drops of gentle washing up liquid mixed with tepid water.

Only use a soft cotton cloth to polish your gemstones. Anything that is rougher may scratch the jewels and leave a mark. That even includes tissue and kitchen roll. You can pick up a cotton cloth at your local supermarket. You can ask your jeweller for jewellery care tips specific to your choice of stone.

Follow These Steps To Clean Your Gold Jewellery:

  1. Mix a bowl of warm water and washing up liquid
  2. Drop the piece of jewellery in the water and leave to soak for five minutes
  3. Remove the piece and lay it on a soft cloth
  4. Clean any crevices with a soft toothbrush
  5. Rinse and dry with a soft cloth

And To Clean Silver Sterling:

  1. Mix baking soda with a dash of washing up liquid and warm water to create a paste
  2. Rub the silver jewellery gently with the paste
  3. Briefly place the piece in clean water to remove the soap
  4. Once it’s rinsed, dab the jewellery to draw out any water from between the gemstones
  5. Finally, dab it with a soft towel and leave the piece to air dry

Once Your Pieces Are Dry, Immediately Store Them Back In Your Jewellery Box.

Alternatively, you can invest in a specific jewellery cleaner. However, it isn’t necessary when washing up liquid works so well.

How To Store Your Handmade Jewellery

You should always store your jewellery in a fabric-lined jewellery box to keep it safe between each wear. A compartmentalised box is best so that you can separate your pieces to prevent tarnishing.

Because gold is softer than silver you should keep the two metals separate. Otherwise, your silver pieces may scratch the gold ones – even a gold vermeil ring is vulnerable to silver

You can store the most precious pieces of handmade jewellery within individual jewellery boxes too. This helps avoid any tarnish taking place and prevents your pieces from getting tangled up.
