A Few Of Our Top Tips.....
Put the Perfume Down
Taking care of your jewellery from the get-go is crucial. Exposure to soaps, sprays, and lotions can result in your pieces becoming tarnished. To avoid this, we suggest waiting a few minutes for any products to dry before accessorising for the day. Perfume can be especially damaging to your jewellery due to its essential oils and alcohol content, so make sure your fragrance is completely dry by leaving it for 10-15 minutes before adding any jewels. And don’t forget to remove your jewellery if you’re topping up any products throughout the day!
Remove On The Reg
We’re all about wearing your jewellery each and every day, but to keep it looking its best, make sure to remove it any time you wash, exercise or sanitise. While pearls at the pool may seem rather harmless, it’s probably a good idea to keep your jewellery away from any sort of physical activity.
Store it Like You Mean it
Storing your jewellery in a clean and dry place is ideal, such as in a jewellery box or a fabric-lined case. This keeps it safe from scratches, sprays and pesky tangles. Alternatively, the velvet pouch that all Daisy pieces come with is a great ‘in-between’ place for storage - especially when travelling. While it may seem a little over the top - for those wanting to keep their jewellery pristine for even longer, try to store the same metals together. Not only does it make your pieces easier to organise, but it’s just one more precaution to keep your jewellery from tarnishing.
Let’s Keep it Clean
It never hurts to give your jewellery a polish every few months. For your gold-plated pieces, simply stick to polishing them gently with a microfibre cloth. If you’re dealing with silver, you can also use some warm, soapy water - but make sure to let it dry before popping back in your jewellery box.
So, let’s recap - here are the condensed lists of what to do and what not to do:
How Jewellery Can Tarnish
- Exposure to soaps, perfumes, lotions & oils, chlorine and cleaning chemicals
- Submerging in water for long periods of time or repeatedly dampened
- Oxidising through prolonged exposure to direct sunlight
- Exposure to toxins or chemicals released from the skin through sweat
Gemstones Need Extra Care
- Never fully submerge your gemstone in water
- Avoid exposing all gems to either extreme darkness or excessively bright light
- Store your gems in a sealed container such as the Daisy pouch
- Never use chemical cleaners

Something to note: unfortunately, we don’t offer re-plating services here at Daisy, so following these care tips is crucial to keep your jewellery sparkling for years to come...
To deep clean your jewellery you need a specialist jewellery cloth that has not been chemically treated. Alternatively, you can use a good quality microfibre cloth.
If you’re a Golden Goddess this one’s for you. No chemicals or jewellery cleaning agents, such as ‘dip’ polishes, should be used on gold-plate.
Listen up Silver Siren’s! To keep your jewellery shining bright you can carefully clean your pieces with a soft toothbrush and warm soapy water. You can then pat dry with a soft cloth.
