Are you exposing your jewellery to these?

Updated: Oct 21, 2021

We all do it! We love our jewellery so much that we live & love life to the full in it, all day every day! But there are some things that really don't do jewellery any favours.

Here's our top 3 no-no's when it comes to looking after your jewels at home.



It’s a great idea to remove your rings & things when doing chores, cooking, showering, sleeping or any manual work. We have seen all manner of distressed jewels that have suffered whilst working at home.


Do not use gin, toothpaste, baking soda, aluminium, harsh industrial/domestic chemicals. Only use reputable brand jewellery baths or dips, following the instruction completely.
No-no number 2/. Exposing your jewels to chemicals

All chemicals may adversely react with your jewellery & gemstones, accelerating the risk of damage to the surfaces. Do not use gin, toothpaste, baking soda, aluminium, harsh industrial/domestic chemicals. Gin is great for drinking but no so much for precious metals & gems!


Only use reputable brand jewellery baths or dips, following the instruction completely. A good cleaner is the Connoisseurs range of cleaners available at Regal.


Avoid contact with chlorinated water in swimming, spa & mineral pools, Sulphur, lotions, cosmetics, hair products & hair dyes, perfumes.   When wearing perfume or hairspray allow it to dry well before putting on your jewellery.
No-no number 3/. Sunburnt and overexposed to Chlorine

Avoid contact with chlorinated water in swimming, spa & mineral pools, Sulphur, lotions, cosmetics, hair products & hair dyes, perfumes. When wearing perfume or hairspray allow it to dry well before putting on your jewellery, especially Pearls.



When you not wearing your jewellery, create a favourite place to put them in or better still, store each item away in its own jewellery bag.
