How to care for your jewellery

Every piece of jewellery expertly crafted by Jubilee Jewellers is manufactured exclusively from fine metals. When it comes to caring for your precious jewellery pieces, proper maintenance is key to preserving their beauty and longevity.

How to care for yellow gold jewellery

Yellow gold jewellery is durable but can still be prone to scratches and damage if not cared for properly. 


  • Clean with a soft cloth
  • Gently wipe your yellow gold jewellery with a soft, lint-free cloth to remove dirt, oils, and fingerprints.


  • Store your gold jewellery separately from other pieces to prevent scratching. You can use jewellery pouches or lined jewellery boxes for storage.


  • Keep your gold jewellery away from harsh chemicals such as chlorine, bleach, and household cleaning products, as they can damage the metal.
  • Remove your gold jewellery before engaging in strenuous activities such as sports or heavy lifting to prevent damage.

How to care for sterling silver 925 jewellery

Sterling silver jewellery is beautiful but requires regular care to prevent tarnishing and scratching. 


  • Use a soft silver polishing cloth to gently polish your sterling silver jewellery and remove tarnish buildup.


  • Store your sterling silver jewellery in a dry, airtight container or a tarnish-resistant jewellery box to prevent tarnishing.


  • Avoid exposing your sterling silver jewellery to moisture, including water, sweat, and humidity, as it can accelerate tarnishing.
  • Take off your sterling silver jewellery before swimming and showering to prevent exposure to chlorinated water and harsh chemicals.
  • Chemicals found in perfumes, lotions, and hairsprays can tarnish sterling silver, so it's best to apply these products before putting on your jewellery.

Continuum silver, known for its durability and resistance to tarnishing, still requires proper care to maintain its lustre and shine.

  • To prolong its lifespan, take off your continuum silver jewellery before doing any activities that may cause damage, such as sports or heavy lifting.

Annual check-up

Just as regular servicing is vital for maintaining the performance and longevity of your car, so too is servicing your jewellery essential for preserving its beauty and integrity. Much like how a car undergoes thorough cleaning, inspection, and maintenance to identify and address any issues, jewellery servicing involves professional cleaning and examination to ensure stones are secure, clasps are functioning correctly, and the metal remains in optimal condition. Ignoring jewellery maintenance can result in tarnishing, damage or even loss of precious stones.

By investing in annual jewellery servicing, you not only safeguard your valuable pieces but also uphold their sentimental and monetary worth.

Contact the friendly team at Jubilee Jewellers to arrange an annual check-up for your jewellery.
