Welcome to Jewelry Black Hills Gold for instructions on cleaning and caring for your Black Hills Gold Jewelry.

How to Clean Black Hills Gold Jewelry

To clean your jewelry, pour a small quantity of mild soap into some lukewarm water and use a small, soft toothbrush. Toothbrushes are ideal for cleaning jewelry with patterns, which can otherwise be difficult to clean. If the dirt is hard to remove, soak the jewelry in clean water. However, remember that this cleaning method should not be used to clean jewelry with cultured freshwater pearls.

Protecting Your Black Hills Gold Jewelry

We recommend that customers remove jewellery before going to bed or participating in physical activity. Remember that jewellery must not be exposed to chlorine or salt water, as this will dull the appearance. Try to prevent your cultured freshwater pearls from being exposed to water and cleaning agents. Cultured freshwater pearls must only be cleaned with a soft brush or a cloth.

A silver-polishing cloth is a great tool to make your silver jewelry shine again if the pieces have become dull. However, it will not remove scratches. Silver-polishing cloths can be purchased from PANDORA retailers or your local goldsmith.

Storing Your Jewelry

Jewelry should be stored away from natural sunlight and heat, in a protective (lined) jeweler box or a tarnish-resistant pouch. It can also be stored in a plastic zip lock bag made of Mylar or polyethylene. Never use polyvinyl plastic bags, such as trash can liners as they contain sulfur compounds, or rubber containers which will make sterling silver tarnish faster and can also turn silver jeweler black. Do not store your jeweler in the bathroom.


Genuine pieces of jewelry provide lasting memories and symbolize the unforgettable moments in your life. Because genuine jewellery is kept for many years, the precious metals, stones, and cultured freshwater pearls need maintenance and care.

Please note that our PANDORA white gift boxes are not made for long-term storage as they are not airtight and tarnishing will occur over time.

Caring for your Black Hills Gold

The frosty finish on Black Hills Gold may pick up dirt and grime.  Thorough scrubbing with a soft brush and mild soap followed by  a warm water rinse and drying with a soft towel should keep the jewelry bright and new-looking.

Pearls and opals should be cleaned using warm water and a soft cloth.  Avoid using any cleaning agents or excessive heat.

Avoid using any detergent on bangles, lockets and hoops.  To clean use minimal warm water and a soft brush.  Do NOT immerse

Some cosmetics and hand lotions contain substances that may darken the surface of the leaves.  Frequent cleaning should prevent darkening.

By its inherent nature, silver will tarnish over time and requires cleaning to restore it to its natural beauty.  This cleaning should be done by contacting us at and together we will help you decide on how to clean your precious jewelry.
