Swarovski jewellery is crafted with care, and it requires special care to retain its magic and brilliance. 
Find out how to care for and clean your Swarovski jewellery in this simple guide.

Caring for your Swarovski Jewellery

All our jewellery 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 jewellery looking its best.

How to clean Swarovski jewellery

Follow these steps to clean your jewellery and maintain its brilliance:


Wash and dry your hands.


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


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


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


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

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

•    Store your jewellery 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 colour.
•    Always remove your jewellery 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 discolouration and loss of brilliance.
•    Put on your jewellery last when dressing and take it off first when undressing. Each stone on your Swarovski jewellery 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 jewellery in bed or when exercising.

Things to avoid

•    Avoid contact with water and other fluids – especially acidic liquids, sonic cleaners, and commercial jewellery 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 jewellery

Occasionally, your jewellery 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 jewellery:


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 jewellery.


Wash your jewellery 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.


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


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


If you need any further advice about cleaning Swarovski jewellery, please contact us or visit your local retailer.
*A lint-free cloth is a special type of cleaning cloth that does not release any fluff. 
You can purchase these cloths online, in DIY shops, or in some supermarkets.
