Caring for your Swarovski Jewelry

All our jewelry pieces are crafted in a traditional way and are therefore very delicate. Each stone is individually set, and the metal is plated. Follow these care instructions for how to clean your Swarovski earrings, rings, necklaces, and bracelets, and keep your jewelry looking its best.

How to clean Swarovski jewelry

Title:
Follow these steps to clean your jewelry and maintain its brilliance:

1

Wash and dry your hands.

2

Use a soft, lint-free cloth* to gently clean the product from every angle.

3

For pendants and necklaces, clean the chain last as this is likely to be the dirtiest part.

4

When cleaning pierced earrings, hold your jewelry piece by the post (the part that goes into the earlobe).

5

If possible, clean after every wear to remove any dirt or other signs of daily wear. 

More care tips to keep your Swarovski jewelry at its best:

Title:
  • Store your jewelry in its original packaging or a soft pouch to avoid scratching. This also helps to reduce exposure to sunlight and excessive heat, which can fade color.
  • Always remove your jewelry before washing your hands, swimming, or applying body care products such as perfume, hairspray, soaps, and lotions. These products can damage the metal and reduce the lifetime of the plating, as well as cause discoloration and loss of brilliance.
  •  Put on your jewelry last when dressing and take it off first when undressing. Each stone on your Swarovski jewelry is individually set, therefore each piece is very delicate and can be damaged when tugged or pulled. We also recommend that you do not wear your Swarovski jewelry in bed or when exercising.

Things to avoid

Title:
  • Avoid contact with water and other fluids – especially acidic liquids, sonic cleaners, and commercial jewelry cleaners containing ammonia or alcohol. These types of liquid can damage both the plating and the crystals.
  • Avoid impact with hard surfaces, as this can cause scratches and chips to the stones and the plating.

Deep cleaning your jewelry

Occasionally, your jewelry may require more intensive cleaning to remove more persistent dirt or stains. However, in order to protect the plating, this should not be done too often.
Follow these steps to deep clean your jewelry:

1

Fill a clean bowl with lukewarm water (around 30°C) and add a few drops of mild, pH neutral dish detergent. Do not use boiling water as it may damage your jewelry.

2

Wash your jewelry in the water for up to two minutes, using your hands or a soft-bristled brush. Avoid applying hard pressure during cleaning as this may scratch or damage the surface.

3

Rinse with clean water, taking care to remove any traces of soap.

4

Dry thoroughly with a soft, lint-free cloth* or lay your jewelry on a clean piece of cloth until you are sure it is completely dry.
