General Care


Over time, jewellery can become a treasured family heirloom if it is cared for properly. 

Exposure to dust, body perspiration and general outside world interferences can over time damage your jewellery, resulting in duller gemstones and wearing down the metals on your jewellery. 

Professional cleanings are recommended as often as once a year, you should seek the expertise of a reputable jewellery cleaner to help maintain your jewellery.

Precious metals tarnishes and can become damaged when exposed to harsh chemicals such as washing up liquids or if worn during physical exertion resulting in body perspiration. Please exercise common sense to help protect your jewellery.

Washing Jewellery

GOLDWINTER recommends washing jewellery by hand in warm water with a mild detergent such as mild soap.

All jewellery should not be left to soak in water. To avoid spotting, it is important to dry your jewellery immediately after washing.

Polishing Jewellery

 Use a soft cloth to apply the polish. Rub each piece gently but firmly lengthwise, using straight, even strokes. You may use a small brush (like a toothbrush with natural bristles) for decorative trim or borders. Wash in sudsy water, being sure to remove all the polish. Rinse well in warm water, dry thoroughly and buff gently with a soft cloth.

Storing Jewellery

It is recommended you never store jewellery where it can easily be exposed to sunlight or at risk to general damage from the outside world.

To this effect, inside a container such as the one sent by GOLDWINTER with your order is recommended.
