Care & Cleaning
Caring for your Platinum Jewellery
Store pieces separately, in a jewelry box or chamois bag so they don't get scratched by other items of jewelry.
Keep your precious pieces in a safe place and have them sufficiently insured. If you are unsure about the value of your piece take it to LOUIE DANIELE for valuation.
We recommend that you have your platinum jewelry cleaned and inspected periodically. This will help ensure its appearance.
Clean platinum in the same way you clean other fine jewelry - using a pre-packaged jewelry cleaner or by soaking it in a mild solution of soap and warm water then gently rubbing it with a soft cloth.
Any alterations or adjustments, resizing, polishing and cleaning should be done by a LOUIE DANIELE platinum trained bench worker.
You should take your platinum piece to LOUIE DANIELE for polishing if visible scratches appear. All precious metals can scratch and platinum is no exception. However, the scratch on platinum is merely a displacement of the metal and little of its volume is lost.
Platinum develops a patina over time, which is the matte finish that is unique to platinum. If you prefer the high shine look, the piece can be taken to LOUIE DANIELE to have it re-polished to a high gloss look.
Remember that all precious jewelry, including platinum, should not be worn when performing heavy work, labor, or if contact will be made with hard or abrasive surfaces.
Guard against door handles, pushing trolleys and car doors. These can cause accidental damage to your platinum jewellery.
