The right piece of jewellery can add instant glamour to any outfit. A great pair of earrings, an elegant necklace, or a charming bracelet can highlight your personality and show off your personal sense of style.

We keep our favourite items for years, often passing them on to our children as they grow up themselves. Unfortunately, the more you wear your favourite items of jewellery, the more likely they are to lose their glimmering appeal. A good clean every now and then, however, will bring them back up to their sparkling best.

It's important to keep the benefits and potential risks in mind when choosing your buffing tools, be they homemade metal polishes or professional solutions. So read on for a quick run-down of some of the most popular approaches to cleaning jewellery and what you need to know about them before you start work on your favourite piece of jewellery.

Water and dish soap

Looking for a way to clean your jewellery without spending money on a professional jewellery cleaner? One of the most common choices is to mix mild dish soap with water. This is a good option if you need to remove slight films from metal, or remove gentle discoloration. All you need to do is rub the jewellery, then rinse in cold water.

Unfortunately, this method will only be able to deal with slight tarnishing. Additionally, if you leave the jewellery in the water for too long, or fail to dry it properly, you actually risk speeding up the tarnishing process.

You might use ammonia to clean your floors, but did you know it’s also used to clean diamonds? All you need to do is mix a small amount of ammonia with warm water, and place your diamonds into the mixture so that they can sit for around 15 minutes.

Of course, the main problem with using ammonia is that you're exposing yourself – and your jewellery – to some very harsh chemicals. It may help the gems to sparkle, but at the expense of the metal surrounding them.

Vinegar is renowned as a home cleaning solution. If you’re looking to use it to clean your jewellery then make a note that you need to use white vinegar, not brown like below. Simply pour the vinegar into a bowl and allow the jewellery to soak in it for about 15 minutes. Once it's done soaking, gently scrub the jewellery to remove grime.

It’s a pretty safe approach and you should see some quick results. But like dish soap, it won’t always get rid of the deepest tarnishes. You'll also be exposing your favourite pieces to a very strong scent, which can be difficult to remove, even with extended wear.
