As you’ve probably gathered by now, we’re serious Stainless Steel Jewellery fan girls here, we can’t get enough of the stuff. Reason being – it’s strong as hell and doesn’t discolour your fingers. It’s nickel free and so suitable for the vast majority of us. Every single item we sell (including our favourite Crypt Coffin Ring and Orb Weaver Spider Ring) is made from this godly substance. I’ve countless rings that are dinted and scratched to hell, some people love this rough look but personally I prefer the bands of my rings to stay the same shape.
1. Pour some warm water into a small bowl, and add some mild dishwashing soap.
2. Dip a soft, lint-free cloth in the soapy water, and then gently wipe the stainless steel jewellery with the damp cloth until the piece is clean. When cleaning it, rub the item along its polish lines.
3. Wipe the remaining soap off your jewellery using a moist cloth dipped in clean water.
4. Dry the jewellery well with a clean towel, and then leave your pieces to air dry.
After your stainless steel jewellery is clean, you can use a jewellery polish or a polishing cloth to shine it.
Although stainless steel jewellery doesn’t tarnish or corrode and doesn’t require special care, it can sometimes scratch depending on the plating.
That’s why you should wear and store your pieces in a way that minimizes any contact with other items that can damage your stainless steel jewellery.
If your jewellery does get scratched, you can always have it professionally polished by a jeweller.
Store your stainless steel pieces separately from jewellery made of other metals. It is best if you keep your stainless steel items in individual bags or pouches.
