Caring for your platinum jewellery
Ensure your precious platinum pieces remain in perfect condition with advice and tips on jewellery storage, cleaning and maintenance. Look after your precious platinum jewellery and its looks will last forever.
Where should I keep my platinum jewellery when I am not wearing it?
Store pieces separately, in a jewellery box or chamois bag so they don’t get scratched by other items.
How do I care for platinum jewellery?
Clean platinum in the same way you clean other fine jewellery to maintain its fine appearance and ensure that it lasts. Either use a mild solution of soap and warm water, and gently rub it with a soft cloth, or buy a jewellery cleaning solution.
Will platinum jewellery scratch?
All precious metals scratch, and platinum is no exception. It is unique in that the metal is only displaced, not lost. Have your platinum jewellery polished if you are interested in maintaining a high shine. Look for a qualified jeweller or platinum trained bench worker for all adjustments, resizing, polishing and cleaning.
Can I wear my platinum ring while doing manual work such as cleaning or gardening?
Remove your platinum jewellery when undertaking heavy work. It is also advisable not to handle bleach or harsh chemicals when wearing your jewellery. Although they won’t hurt the platinum, chemicals may discolor diamonds or gemstones.
