platinum is one of the rarest and most durable precious metals. it is resistant to tarnishing and discoloration due to chlorine and other chemicals. platinum jewelry needs to be properly cared for, the same way your other fine jewelry needs care.
store platinum in a cool, dry place and keep it free from dust, moisture, perspiration and makeup. jewelry should be stored in a soft cloth. chains should lie flat to avoid kinks. avoid placing pieces atop each other in a pouch, jewelry box or drawer.store pieces individually in a soft pouch or in drawers lined with a piece of soft cloth, such as felt. this also helps prevent pieces from knocking into and scratching each other. signs of wear such as scratches may eventually appear, but there is usually little metal loss. visible scratches can be removed by repolishing the piece.
a soft chamois cloth is an effective way to clean platinum and keep it shiny. grease can be removed by dipping jewelry into plain rubbing alcohol. to remove slight tarnish use warm soapy water mixed with a few drops of ammonia. a baby toothbrush is soft enough to use for jewelry cleaning. rinse with warm water and air dry.
though platinum is highly durable and resistant, you should avoid contact with chlorine, sulfur and strong household cleaning supplies, since the harsh chemicals are corrosive and can erode the quality and sheen of of your jewelry. also avoid high temperatures.
