Talvi Jewellery Care


  • To clean your sterling silver or solid gold jewellery use a soft bristled toothbrush with a small amount of dish soap and scrub gently, then rinse in cold/warm water & pat dry with a soft cotton cloth.

  • Be sure to remove jewellery before applying sunscreen, body care products or perfumes, & before swimming, bathing or showering.

  • Use a polishing cloth specific to your precious metal (silver polishing cloth for silver, gold cloth for gold) to bring it back to it's full or desired lustre.

  • When your jewellery is not being worn, store it in a dry airtight container.


Gold plated jewellery is a great option for those who can’t afford a full gold jewellery. To decrease the chances of wearing out, here are easy ways on keeping the luster of your gold plated jewellery. As it is a thin layer of gold, extra care should be taken to maximize its lifespan. Gold plated jewellery will wear down over time with use & require re-plating. It is not a permanent gold finish & requires special care.

  1. Do not spray on perfume or other sprays while wearing your gold plated jewellery. Wear your jewellery after you have sprayed on your favourite perfume so that chemicals on the spray or perfume does not interact with your jewellery’s metal.

  2. Wait until your lotion or cream is dry or has been absorbed by your skin before you wear your gold plated ring, bracelet or necklace.

  3. Substances like oil, nail polish, nail polish remover, chlorine, perfume and the like may react with metal/plated jewellery and will cause it to tarnish easily. This also goes with sweat, so make sure you don’t forget to remove your gold plated jewellery when you exercise or anything that would require heavy physical work, and also when swimming.

  4. After every use, clean your plated jewellery with a cotton ball or a very soft cloth to remove any dust and dirt it has acquired. Gently rubbing the surface of your gold plated jewellery using a soft jewellery cloth also helps restore shine.

  5. If your jewellery needs more cleaning you may clean it with warm, soapy water. Soak it for a few minutes and you may clean it with a soft brush. Stay away from jewellery cleaners and antibacterial soaps which may have certain components that will just make your gold plated jewellery tarnish more quickly.

  6. To avoid scratches, wrap your jewellery in a soft cloth after cleaning or keep it in a jewellery box separate from other types of jewellery you have.
