Care Maintenance and Cleaning your Swarovski Jewelry
Although the swarovski pearls are resistant to most everyday chemicals just as cultured pearls are, it's best not to wash the swarovski pearls. You need only buff them with a dry, soft cloth or towel.
As for the swarovski crystals, they are of the finest, most genuine lasting quality. Therefore, it is not hard to ensure and maintain their lasting quality and fascinating beauty. Occasionally, simply polish the swarovski crystals or beads with a dry, soft, lint-free cloth or towel. If soiled or very dirty, you can wash them by mixing a small amount of mild detergent or a soft, gentle soap with lukewarm water, and wash your swarovski crystal in there using a soft bristled brush or a soft cloth or towel. Rinse thoroughly under clean, running water. Dry with a soft, lint-free cloth or towel.
Do not use boiling water, sonic cleaners, or commercial jewelry cleaners because those as well as other cleaners contain alcohol or ammonia which can have a damaging effect on the gold or rhodium plating some of the swarovski jewelry has, and also damage the metallic color coating on most of the crystals and beads.
It is best to never wear your swarovski jewelry in the pool, ocean, bath, shower, in bed, while doing dishes, while cleaning, or while exercising. Try not to get your swarovski jewelry wet. Put on your swarovski jewelry after applying hairspray, perfume, makeup, lotion, or any products basically. Exposing your swarovski jewelry to any of these products or conditions can cause wear and tear or unreasonable stress. Store the jewelry somewhere safe, like a jewelry box or pouch, to prevent it from getting scratched or dirty.
When not wearing your necklaces, chains, and bracelets, it's best to keep them hung up in order to best retain their shine and luster. Do not store any of your jewelry, whether it's swarovski jewelry or not, in areas exposed to excessive sunlight or excessive heat. Most important, just like glass, crystal can chip or crack if dropped on the floor or a hard surface. Handle your swarovski jewelry with care and it will last you a lifetime.
