How to clean jewellery
From Pandora Moments to Pandora Me and Pandora Reflexions, the cleaning instructions below cover all Pandora jewellery and collections. Choose the care instructions to match your jewellery.
How often should you clean jewellery?
We recommend having your Pandora jewellery pieces checked by a jeweller once a year. If you’re looking for where to get rings cleaned or where to get jewellery cleaned, remember that your local Pandora store is the place to go for professional cleaning and to check stone settings.
How to clean and maintain your Pandora jewellery
Polish your Pandora jewellery frequently with a soft polishing cloth to maintain their shine. Buff your sterling silver pieces with the white side of the polishing cloth – it's infused with a gentle cleaning solution that’s specifically formulated for our signature metal. For plated metals, such as 14k rose gold-plated and 14k gold-plated, use the untreated pink side of the polishing cloth. You can use the approved Pandora Care Kit to clean Pandora rings, bracelets, charms, necklaces, pendants and earrings. Before using the kit, check the instructions for individual stone care on the corresponding page of this jewellery guide to make sure you care for any extra materials on your piece in the recommended way. When using Pandora’s mild cleaning solution, leave jewellery to soak for approximately two minutes and then follow the instructions for polishing. Don’t use toothpaste or harsh abrasive products when cleaning it and avoid using ultrasonic cleaners, which may cause damage.
Why does jewellery tarnish?
When silver is exposed to air over a longer period of time, it's likely to oxidise and turn a darker colour. Don’t worry though, this is absolutely normal. To restore its original look, just use the Pandora Care Kit to make your favourite pieces bright and shiny again. Simply place your ring, bracelet, necklace, earrings or charm in the gentle cleaning solution for a few minutes and after you take it out, use the small brush to loosen any dirt. Next, dry and buff it with the white side of the polishing cloth – it's infused with a gentle cleaning solution that’s specifically formulated for sterling silver. For plated metals, such as 14k rose gold-plated and 14k gold-plated, use the untreated side of the polishing cloth. That’s it! Your Pandora jewellery will look just like new.
How to store your Pandora jewellery
A polishing cloth won’t remove scratches, so it’s important to protect your Pandora too. Store them separately in a tarnish-resistant jewellery box or pouch and keep away from abrasive surfaces. Remove your rings prior to swimming, bathing and other sporting/physical activities and limit contact with make-up, creams, perfume and lotions. There are also a few environments and products you should avoid when it comes to your pieces. Try to keep your jewellery away from extreme temperatures, such as direct sunlight, extreme cold and dampness.
