Alternatively, if your jewellery has lost its lustre then contact us today about our polishing services, to help restore the shine to your favourite jewellery.
Gold on silver should be treated like gold, until the plating wears off. Other plated items and costume jewellery can be damaged by polishing, so leave them alone.
Only polish items which should have a shiny surface. If the piece has a matt or satin finish; do not polish, but you can remove discolouration with a soft eraser. Scratches cannot be treated at home. If you want the finish restored, take it to a jeweller.
This metal is too hard to polish at home. However this hardness means it will last for years before losing its shine. When it needs re-polishing, take it to a jeweller.
Yellow or red gold won't tarnish under normal conditions. However certain chemicals - some used in medicines, others in products like bleach - will cause discolouration. You can't deal with this problem at home, your jeweller can help.
With time, white gold may turn yellow; again seek help from your jeweller.
In normal wear gold gets scratched. Rub steadily with a Silver (or Jewellery) Polishing Cloth, and its appearance will be somewhat improved. However you will not be able to achieve the brilliant polish of a new item. If you want the item restored to that condition, take it to your jeweller.
