Cleaning & Caring: Gold and Vermeil Jewellery

Cleaning specific jewellery pieces

Jewellery consists of many different materials, metals, stones, gems and organic materials.

Each material brings its own cleaning challenges.  If in doubt please just wipe your piece over with a soft cloth after each wear.  This will remove dirt, grime and body oils before you place it back into storage which will keep it looking its best longer.

In some designs the stones or focal pieces are glued into position and some cleaners (even water) may loosen the hold over time causing the focal to fall out.

Caring for Gold and Vermeil Jewellery

Gold jewellery doesn’t tarnish, but it can be dirtied or dulled by the oils in your skin, body lotion, makeup or other substances.

Gold, can be cleaned easily with a mild detergent in warm water and a soft cloth or brush (baby toothbrush).

Put the item into a bowl of warm soapy water and let sit for a few minutes. Use a soft toothbrush to gently scrub the jewellery. Remove the item from the soapy water and rinse it.  Dry thoroughly with a soft polishing cloth.

Gold filled and Vermeil Jewellery (gold plating over sterling silver) can be cleaned in the same way.
