Satinising precious metal means meticulously carving tiny grooves into the surface of the jewellery. Satinised jewellery can only be cleaned using a very soft brush, lukewarm water, and mild detergent. The brush will remove dirt and grease from the grooves. A piece of cloth will not suffice for proper cleaning.
HAMMERED AND POLISHED GOLD
Gold surfaces without grooves may be cleaned using a piece of cloth or a soft brush, lukewarm water, and mild detergent. To preserve the matte appearance of hammered gold, we recommend that the surface is wiped very gently.
It may very well be that diamonds are referred to as a girl’s best friend because they can withstand almost anything. We recommend cleaning these hard stones using a soft brush and mild detergent. Whether cleaning a piece of solitaire or pavé jewellery, you do not need to be afraid to harm the stone, although you do have to be careful when cleaning the gold surface (see above).
CORAL, PEARL, PRECIOUS STONES
The hardness of coral, pearl, and precious stones varies with each stone, and their surface is not as strong as that of diamonds. We recommend extreme caution when cleaning fine jewellery adorned with coral, pearl, and precious stones in order not to harm the surface of the stone. Use only a very soft brush, lukewarm water, and mild detergent to carefully clean the edges of the stone setting. A piece of cloth may be used to clean the surface of the stone.

You are always welcome to hand in your fine jewellery at a flagship store or with an authorised OLE LYNGGAARD COPENHAGEN retailer to have it cleaned by professional craftsmen.
