Platinum Care and Tips

Atomic number 78, more commonly known as PLATINUM. This extremely rare element that is found in the earth’s crust can be very useful indeed. From catalytic converters, pacemakers, optical wires through to watch parts. Of course, our favourite use for this precious metal is jewellery. (Obviously). A hypoallergenic and naturally white metal, it is four times stronger than gold and will not colour or fade. This makes it a top choice for jewellery making. 

 

As it is the Queens Platinum Jubilee, we thought we would put together a little guide to help you get the most out of your Platinum Jewellery. Not you Queenie, we’re pretty sure you have a “Royal Jewellery Cleaning Person”. What a fantastic job that would be……..

How To Care for My Platinum Jewellery.

Although it is strong, your platinum jewellery is precious, so following these simple rules will help you keep it looking it’s best for years to come.

  • Always remove your jewellery before doing any vigorous activity, such as exercise or baking. (This is a good rule to follow with any jewellery.) 
  • Keep your platinum items separate to your other jewellery items when they are not being warn. This will prevent scratching to the other items. 
  •  Do not expose your platinum jewellery to harsh chemicals. Thinking of bleaching the bathroom? Remove your platinum rings first! 
  • If you are going to clean your platinum jewellery yourself, use a solution of warm soapy water and a soft bristled toothbrush.  
  • Is your platinum starting to look “frosty”? This may be what is called Patina. If this occurs then it will need to be professionally cleaned and polished. We will be able to help you with this.
