Over time jewellery will begin to reflect the wearer and their individual lifestyle. With wear the finish will change; matt finishes will become more shiny and polished finishes will become more matt.
Handwash, perfumes, chlorine, detergents, and oils can all cause tarnishing and damage to the surface finish. Apply scents or cosmetics before you put on any jewellery. If jewellery comes in to contact with water gently dry with a soft cloth to avoid risk of tarnishing. Do not wear jewellery whilst swimming, bathing, showering, doing household tasks or whilst exercising.
Jewellery can be gently cleaned with a very soft toothbrush and warm, soapy water. It should be rinsed thoroughly and dried well.
You can use a silver cloth to polish silver jewellery.
The oxidised finish on silver will wear with time and reveal the silver underneath in a beautiful way unique to your piece.
Gold plating is not a permanent process and will wear with time and wear. If you require a piece of jewellery to be re-plated, please be in touch for information about cost.
For jewellery with gemstones it is advised that you check the settings occasionally. If the setting appears worn or the stone appears wobbly, stop wearing the jewellery and get in touch. We will endeavour to make it secure again.
