How do I clean my jewellery? - Dainty London

Hey, I'm Jade, the proud founder of Dainty London Jewellery, and I'm here to give you the lowdown on how to keep your precious gems sparkling like they're fresh off the red carpet.

  1. Gather Your Treasures

Before you embark on your jewellery cleaning journey, assemble your bling-cleaning squad. You'll need a few items for this mission: a soft-bristle toothbrush, mild dish soap, warm water, a lint-free cloth, and a jewellery polishing cloth. These are your trusty companions for the sparkling adventure ahead.

  1. Know Thy Gems

Not all gems are created equal, and each requires a unique approach to cleaning. For hardy diamonds and sapphires, a warm soapy bath works wonders. However, delicate gems like opals, pearls, and emeralds prefer a gentle touch. Opals can be sensitive to sudden temperature changes, and pearls, well, they're a bit high maintenance. Avoid harsh chemicals at all costs, as they can damage your precious treasures.

  1. The Soak and Swish

For those hardy gems that can handle it, prepare a warm, soapy bath. Mix a few drops of mild dish soap with warm water in a bowl. Drop your jewellery in and let it soak for about 15-20 minutes. This bath will loosen up any dirt, oils, or lotions that have taken up residence on your bling.

  1. Brush Away the Grime

After their relaxing soak, it's time for a gentle scrub. Take that soft-bristle toothbrush and delicately scrub your jewellery, paying special attention to the nooks and crannies. This is where dirt likes to hide. Don't go full-on superhero; gentle strokes are the name of the game. 

  1. Rinse and Shine

Bid adieu to the soapy residue by rinsing your jewellery under warm running water. Make sure to use a strainer or plug the drain to avoid any accidental escapes. Once rinsed, pat your jewels dry with a towel or dish cloth. Now, they're looking fresher already!

  1. The Polish Dance

For that extra sparkle, reach for your jewellery polishing cloth (we sent you a complimentary one when you placed your order). Gently rub your pieces and watch them shine like they're ready for their close-up on the red carpet. Avoid paper towels or tissues, as they can scratch your gems.

  1. Pearl Wisdom

If you're dealing with pearls, keep them away from water. Instead, wipe them gently with a soft, damp cloth after each wear. This will prevent them from losing their lustre.

  1. Store It Right

After all that hard work, give your jewellery a comfy home. Store them in individual pouches or compartments to prevent scratching and tangling. Keep them away from direct sunlight and extreme temperatures.

  1. Regular TLC

Remember, cleaning your jewellery should be a regular affair, not just a once-in-a-blue-moon event. The more often you show them love, the longer they'll dazzle.

And there you have it, your bling-bling cleaning guide. Follow these steps, and your jewellery will shine brighter than a Hollywood star on the red carpet. Happy cleaning!
