How can I clean my jewellery?

To ensure the safe and effective cleaning of your precious lab grown diamond jewellery, without the risk of damage, we offer some expert recommendations. Cleaning gold, platinum and lab grown diamonds can be easily achieved using a gentle solution of mild soapy water or ammoniac.

Begin by submerging your jewel in a bowl of lukewarm water mixed with a small amount of detergent and kitchen salt or soda. Next, carefully polish it using a soft toothbrush, ensuring thorough cleaning. Rinse the jewel with running lukewarm water and gently pat it dry using a soft and fibre-free cloth.

Using ammoniac is another option for cleaning your jewellery. Place your jewel in a bowl filled with a mixture of 3 parts lukewarm water and 1 part ammoniac. Allow it to soak for approximately 30 minutes, and polish your jewel with a soft toothbrush afterwards. Rinse the jewel with clear water and allow it to dry naturally.

Be careful when cleaning white gold jewellery, as it is created by combining gold with other materials to form an alloy, which is then coated with a rhodium layer. Hard scrubbing can potentially damage this rhodium layer and affect the overall appearance of your white gold jewellery.

If you prefer not to clean your gold and diamonds yourself or don’t have enough time to do so, we offer professional cleaning services. Our experienced jewellers utilize an ultrasonic cleaner, which uses vibrations to remove impurities, ensuring a thorough cleanse even in the tiniest crevices. These cleaners are particularly effective for intricate jewellery that is difficult to clean using a toothbrush alone.

For further advice on maintaining the condition of your jewellery and to explore additional maintenance tips, we encourage you to consult the lab grown diamond jewellery experts at Valquère.
