How do I clean jewelry properly - clean and care for gold jewelry and silver jewelry properly

Gold jewelry: cleaning and care

Gold jewelry is not only a valuable investment, but also a timeless beauty. Especially the massive pieces of jewelry will remain beautiful for a lifetime if you care for and clean your favorites properly.

To ensure that gold jewelry always stays sparkling, follow these care tips:

This is how you clean gold jewelry properly:

  • Store carefully: Real gold jewelry is prone to scratches and needs good care. It is best to store the pieces carefully in a cool and dry place and ideally transport your gold jewelry in separate cloth bags when traveling.
  • Use mild soapy water: Mix warm water with a mild soap, preferably dishwashing liquid, and immerse the gold jewelry. Use a very soft brush to gently remove dirt particles. Then rinse thoroughly and dry carefully.

  • Avoid Ultrasonic Cleaning: Although it may seem quick, using ultrasonic cleaners can damage jewelry. Loose stones could become loose or sensitive surfaces could become worn.

  • Use the CAPULET Cleaning Kit: We have developed a special care set for jewelry cleaning that cleans gold jewelry and makes it shine beautifully again. You can find the CLEANING kit here .

This is how you clean silver jewelry properly

Silver jewelry adds elegance and sophistication, but it tends to oxidize over time. We have tips for you here to prevent silver from tarnishing. With these tips you can keep your silver jewelry radiantly beautiful:

  • Wear regularly: Silver jewelry looks best when worn often. Your skin's natural oils help slow oxidation. Wear silver jewelry when exercising and sweating excessively, as the PH value can be more acidic and aggressive.

  • Store airtight: Store silver jewelry in airtight containers or bags to minimize exposure to air, which can promote oxidation. Please do not store it in the bathroom or in freshly painted wooden drawers.

  • Polishing with a silver polishing cloth: Use a special silver polishing cloth to gently remove light traces of oxidation. Rub gently to avoid scratches. You can find the best silver cleaning cloth in our CAPULET Cleaning Kit.

  • Use the CAPULET brass brush : Our special jewelry care brush, used with detergent and water, ensures perfectly cleaned and shiny silver jewelry. You can find the brass brush here .
