Caring for your Chupi Piece at homeUpdated a year ago

14k Solid Gold pieces are designed to be worn every day - they are heirlooms and are made to become part of your story.

  • A gentle clean with a soft 100% cotton cloth is ideal for maintaining your jewellery’s shine.
  • Try to not wear your jewellery in the shower or when swimming, to avoid losing your precious piece down a drain or in the sea!
  • Do not wear your jewellery in a chlorinated swimming pool, to avoid any chance of tarnishing. Even solid gold doesn’t like Chlorine!
  • Apply any perfume, body lotion or creams and let dry before you put on your jewellery, to ensure your solid gold maintains its lustre.

To clean your jewellery:

Grab a small bowl, pour in some warm water, a splash of gentle soap and stir. Place your jewellery in the solution to soak for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, rinse any suds away with clean water, then polish with a soft 100% cotton cloth and pat completely dry.

For any jewellery with a visible build up of dirt or grime, after soaking you can use a soft brush (like a baby toothbrush) to loosen any grime before removing it with a rinse.

For solid gold Chupi pieces set with diamonds:

We recommend an ultrasonic cleaner. These handy little devices can be purchased from many retailers online. The ultrasonic cleans your jewellery using sound waves - little bubbles are formed in the water and are vibrated to clean your piece to sparkling perfection. We don’t recommend the use of an ultrasonic with Moonstones, Emeralds and a variety of other gemstones but for solid gold pieces and solid gold pieces set with diamonds they are a brilliant tool.

Different gemstones have different needs when it comes to care - for instance, Emeralds and Opals aren’t the biggest fan of moisture, and many gemstones cannot be cleaned in an above-mentioned ultrasonic cleaner.
