For effective jewellery cleaning, follow these steps. Begin by soaking your jewellery in a mixture of plain dish soap (avoiding anything with moisturising elements) and warm water. Alternatively, you can use an at-home jewellery cleaner, but ensure it is suitable for your specific pieces by checking the label.

After soaking, gently scrub the stones and the areas beneath the settings using a soft bristled toothbrush. This will help remove any dirt or grime accumulated on the jewellery.

Next, rinse the jewellery thoroughly with clean water to remove any soap or cleaning solution residue.

To ensure the jewellery is completely dry, carefully dry it using a soft, lint-free cloth or allow it to air dry. Keep in mind that soft gemstones like pearls, opals, and emeralds require extra care as they can be easily damaged. Avoid using warm water and dish soap for cleaning these types of stones. Instead, refer to the instructions provided with your at-home jewellery cleaner to determine if it is safe for these gemstones.If you have any doubts or concerns about cleaning certain types of stones, remember that we are always happy to professionally clean any pieces you have purchased exclusively from Elita.
