Easy ways to clean and care for your jewelry at home
Fill a small bowl with lukewarm water and a few drops of a mild soap, like Dr. Bronners. Soak your gold jewelry for about 20 minutes in the soap solution. If needed use a very soft brush, like a children's toothbrush, to gently scrub off visible dirt. Take care to not scrub stamped areas as it may remove the enamel from the impressions. After soaking, rinse the jewelry in plain water to remove any leftover soap residue. Make sure to completely dry the piece after rinsing with a soft towel before wearing. To restore shine, polish with a soft jewelry cloth.
When you are not wearing your gold jewelry, we recommend storing it wrapped in a soft cloth or jewelry pouch.
To remove tarnish at home, use a small dab of natural toothpaste on a very soft cloth. Rub the silver jewelry with the toothpaste to buff away the tarnish. After removing the tarnish, rinse thoroughly with water to remove any leftover residue. Be sure to dry the piece completely before wearing or storing. Alternately, you can make a paste with baking soda and water instead of using toothpaste. To restore shine, polish with a soft jewelry cloth.
Tarnish is natural and tends to develop more when the jewelry is being stored, not when it's worn. To store silver jewelry, we recommend keeping it in a zip top plastic bag with an anti-tarnish tab.
