Here is a how-to on polishing your jewellery. Dialux offers a range of polishing products to suit any kind of material used in jewellery design for desired finishes.

Dialux is a premium polishing compound commonly used throughout the jewellery making industry. The products are made in Germany with high quality ingredients.

The bars are combined of a compound that is blended with abrasive grit. The large range of polishing bars allows for a variance in levels of abrasiveness, achieving the required finish on different materials.

Here is a useful chart which explains the appropriate polishes for each material, as well as the finish you will have at the end.

We recommend that you sand down your material first with a Polishing Buff Wheel and ensure that any scratches have been removed. After this, apply a conservative amount of Dialux polish onto the appropriate tool. This may be a calico wheel or belt etc.

It is important to not cross-contaminate your tools as you do not want the different polishes to mix.

Pre-Polish:

It is suggested that for pre-polishing, the Yellow, Grey or Orange is the best. Take care to only use slow movements for these polishes as they are more abrasive than the rest of the range.

Polish:

For polishing, White and Blue are normally the recommended, and occasionally Grey for stainless steel materials. If you are using the Blue Dialux with a Flexishaft Pendant Drill Kit it is best to use a Calico Wheel.

Finish:

The final finish for gold or silver jewellery, use either Red, Black, Green, White or Blue. It is recommended that you use a soft Cotton Mop for the Black polish.
