How to clean your jewelry
A few easy steps to clean your silver jewelry at home.

Jewelry is more than just an accessory - it is a testament to your style, a symbol of special moments, and often, a precious keepsake. We pride ourselves on creating pieces that are not only beautiful but also durable for everyday wear because every day is a diamond day. With the proper care, your jewelry can maintain its luster and charm. 

Follow these easy steps to clean your sterling silver jewelry and take care of your jewelry to keep it looking its brightest self.

How to clean your jewelry

What do you need:

  • A bowl with warm water 
  • Detergent-free soap
  • A soft-bristled brush (tip: an old toothbrush will do).
  • A cleaning cloth: every piece of DPT Antwerp jewelry comes with a cleaning cloth to remove dust & dirt. 
  • Your precious sterling silver jewelry


Add a few drops of the detergent-free soap to your bowl with warm water and stir the water and soap to dilute the soap.


Take the sterling silver jewelry you want to clean and carefully lay it in the warm water. Let it soak for a few minutes. 


After a few minutes, take the jewelry out of the water and gently scrub it with a soft-bristled brush. Use a gentle hand to remove persistent dirt and reveal the jewelry's shine. When done, rinse the jewelry with clean water.


As the last step, dry and polish the pieces with the cleaning cloth, included in your DPT order. It will restore the jewelry's shine and make it look as new.


Congratulations - now you've got clean & shiny jewelry. This routine will help keep your jewelry free from dirt and grime, ensuring its sparkle.

Tips & tricks

It’s important to keep your jewelry away from abrasive cleansers, antibacterial soaps, perfumes, and lotions. These products can contain chemicals that may cause gold-plated jewelry to tarnish. Instead, opt for gentle, jewelry-specific cleaning solutions when necessary.

While our pieces are designed for daily wear, extensive contact with water can accelerate tarnishing, especially for gold-plated items. Remove your jewelry before swimming, bathing, or engaging in water-related activities to prolong its life.

For a jewelry storage tip, when not in use, store your jewelry in a clean, cool, and dry place. A jewelry box with a soft lining is ideal for preventing scratches and other damage. If you have multiple pieces, consider separating them to avoid tangling and friction.

Understanding plating & longevity

We use precious and durable materials to ensure that our jewelry is of premium quality. Gold plating, however, will naturally wear off over time. The good news is that this process can be repeated. At DPT Antwerp, we offer one free replating service as part of our commitment to our customers.

Our jewelry, crafted from 925 Sterling silver and gilded with 18-carat gold or protective white rhodium, is designed to resist oxidation. However, humidity and improper storage can sometimes cause staining. These spots can easily be removed with the polishing cleaning cloth provided with your jewelry. Regular cleaning and proper storage are key.

By following these jewelry care tips, you can ensure that your DPT Antwerp jewelry remains as stunning as the day you first wore it. Regular cleaning, careful storage, and mindful wear will keep your pieces shining brightly.
