How Do You Take Care of Fine Jewelry?

Just like precious artwork or beloved clothing, fine jewelry needs special care in order to maintain its beauty for years to come. Famed jewelry designer Hulchi Belluni’s jewelry care guide has the expert advice you need to make sure your fine jewelry stays just as stunning as the day you got it.

Caring for Your Fine Jewelry

All fine jewelry should be treated with love and care. Always wipe it clean with a soft, slightly damp cloth after wearing to get rid of dirt, makeup, or other impurities and store it in a soft cloth, bag, or jewelry box to keep it safe from scratches and dents. Do not wear fine jewelry to bed or when swimming, cleaning, or showering, as chemicals like chlorine, soaps, and detergents can damage metals and gems.

Caring for Diamond Jewelry

Though diamonds are one of the hardest substances in the world, they still need proper care:

  • Take off diamonds before doing rough work as strong blows can chip them.
  • Avoid wearing them around chemicals like chlorine or cleaning solutions
  • Wash them regularly with a soft-bristled toothbrush and warm, soapy water.
  • Store your diamonds separately from one another and other jewelry to avoid scratches

Caring for Gemstone Jewelry

Colored gems also require specialized care. This is particularly true with stones that were heated or treated to enhance their color. To keep gemstone jewelry safe and beautiful, be sure to:

  • Avoid contact with chemicals, saltwater, hairspray, and perfume, as well as sudden temperature changes
  • Clean them regularly with lukewarm water and a soft, clean cloth.
  • Store them in cotton wraps or bags, not plastic

Do keep in mind that emeralds, opals, and tanzanite gems are extra-sensitive and therefore require specialized care.  

Caring for Gold & Platinum Jewelry

Even subtle or simple gold and platinum pieces need care. To keep your precious metals beautiful, be sure to:

  • Clean them regularly by soaking in lukewarm, soapy water and gently scrubbing with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Don’t forget to rinse and pat dry with a soft cloth.
  • Take them off before exercising, bathing, gardening, swimming, or doing housework.
  • Avoid contact with cleaning solutions, chlorine, hairspray, perfume, and sweat.
