Jewellery Care

Just like anything you love in life, your jewellery needs to be looked after. 
Here are some important tips to help you keep your jewellery looking its best so that you can enjoy wearing it for years to come:
  • Avoid exposing your jewellery to perfumes, creams, oils and household chemicals.
  • Store each item of jewellery separately in the box provided to avoid scratches.
  • Keep chains fastened and lay them flat so that they do not tangle.
  • Take care to avoid extreme humidity or heat as this may cause tarnishing.
  • Remove all jewellery before showering, swimming, or washing up. 
  • Clean your jewellery regularly using warm soap and water, and the jewellery cloth provided with your purchase.
With time and wear, sterling silver will naturally become oxidised and eventually tarnish.  Storing silver jewellery in a sealed plastic bag or airtight box when it is not being worn will keep out the air that causes oxidation.

All gold jewellery is plated in a thick layer of 18kt gold, however gold plated jewellery will wear over time. Follow the above tips and try not to wear gold plated rings next to other rings to avoid scratches.
