It’s important to take care of your jewelry,
as much as you take care of your car, clothing, and other materials of a certain value.


  • Take off your jewel whenever you’re planning on doing ‘dirty’ tasks to prevent the dirt and grease from getting into or onto your jewelry.
  • You can clean your jewel with hot water, a soft (!) toothbrush and some detergent: let your jewel soak in hot water with detergent for about 30 min., clean with the brush, rinse and dry with a soft towel.
  • Invest in a semi-professional ultrasonic cleaner. You can find these in our webshop or in other electro stores. Use it maximum every two weeks. I guarantee you’ll be very happy with this investment!
  • Bring in your jewel every year to clean, polish and rhodinate if necessary. It’s like bringing your silk dress to the dry cleaner occasionally!
  • When not wearing your jewel, store it into a box away from sunlight and humidity.


  • Delicate jewelry is my trademark, so I need you to take care! Take off your jewelry whenever you’re planning on doing something that might damage your jewel – like gardening, renovating, sports and even the dishes. Always store it in a box during these handlings.
  • Don’t wear your jewelry in hot tubs, saunas, or swimming pools. Be aware with chemical products in general. 
  • Store each jewel separately. Each material has its own hardness. Harder materials (like diamond, platina) might scratch the softer materials (like silver).
  • Diamond is the hardest material in the world. Colored stones each have their hardness, always ask for it when you buy a jewel. They are more subjected to scratches and therefore need more care!
  • The locks of your bracelet or necklace can wear down. The suspension can soften, which can result in the fact that your lock doesn’t close perfectly anymore. Get it replaced asap!
  • Bring in your jewel every year when your stone is set with prongs. We need to check every year if the prongs didn’t move, so you won’t lose your stone. When your jewel was bought at Melanie Van Dooren, this check-up is for free at atelier Melanie Van Dooren.
