Cleaning Your Swarovski Crystal
Swarovski recommends that you polish
your Swarovski crystal
regularly with the Swarovski
polishing cloth. If soiled, use
soft brush to wash your crystal
in lukewarm water containing
a small amount of a mild detergent.
Then rinse under running
water. Dry with a soft, lint-free
towel and finish with the
Swarovski polishing cloth. To help you clean and care for
your crystal, Swarovski has produced the Swarovski Cleaning Kit.
The kit includes a natural bristle brush with a
a pure cotton polishing cloth, cotton gloves and a small bag of
crystals for decorative purposes.
When handling your crystal, it is recommended that you wear
the Swarovski Gloves to avoid leaving fingerprints. This will
help maintain the brilliance of your Swarovski crystal.
Swarovski Jewelry is fashion jewelry, and as such,
it is either gold or rhodium plated, and a
certain amount of wear and tear will
occur over time. Swarovski's plating
standards are very high and under
normal circumstances your Swarovski
Jewelry will have a very long life. To
ensure the lasting beauty of your
Swarovski Jewelry, do not use sonic cleaners,
or commercial jewelry cleaners.
Jewelry cleaners usually contain ammonia or alcohol which
can have a damaging effect on the plating.
Swarovski recommends that you occasionally
polish each piece with a soft lint-free cloth.
If your jewelry is very dirty, wash your jewelry
using warm water, a mild dish detergent and
a soft bristled brush. Rinse thoroughly with clean water
prior to drying with a soft lint-free
cloth. Please note: Do not wash the Swarovski simulated pearls.
These shouldbe buffed with a soft dry cloth.
Also, it is a good idea to put your Swarovski
Jewelry on after applying perfume, hand cream
or hair spray. Never wear your jewelry in the bath,
in bed, doing dishes or when exercising.
This can cause unreasonable stress and wear
and tear. Store your jewelry in the soft pouch
or box provided by Swarovski to prevent scratching.
Chains and necklaces will retain their
shine and glitter best if they are hung up when not
being worn. Do not store your Swarovski
Jewelry in areas of excessive heat or sun exposure.
