Cleaning jewelry: an expert reveals her best tip for shine and cleanliness
Even the finest pieces of jewelry lose their shine over the years. Especially before a festive occasion such as a wedding or yours, we want to settle for nothing less than the best – this also includes the perfect condition of our accessories. Environmental influences as well as care and soap residues can hide in the space between the frames or make the surfaces appear matt. If you want to gently clean your diamond, gold and silver jewelery at home, jewelery designer Weronika Gula reveals her favorite trick:
You can easily clean your jewelery (provided it is made of high-quality material such as real gold and diamonds) yourself with a little baby shampoo and a soft baby toothbrush and remove any shampoo/perfume and hand cream residue. Afterwards, the piece of jewelry always shines almost like new – but be careful with colored stones and pearls, these are very sensitive and should only be treated by professionals!
Instead of the baby shampoo, you can also use a gold or silver care product if you already have one. However, pay close attention to the softness of the toothbrush: if it is too hard or you work with too much pressure, the surfaces of your precious metals can be scratched. This cleaning routine also does not replace professional cleaning by goldsmiths – but it does provide a fresh shine from time to time.
