Jewellery care

General jewellery care: Store each piece of jewellery separately in a soft lined box or pouch so pieces don't rub against each other. Don't wear jewellery swimming as chlorine damages all metals. Remove jewellery before gardening or household cleaning to prevent wear and chemical damage. 

Oxidised silver jewellery: Over time, the black oxidisation layer will wear off on those areas that rub against clothes or other jewellery. The piece will end up with an antique look; dark in recessed areas/inside of chain and shiny on raised areas and edges. Do not use silver polish on oxidised silver as this will remove the finish.

Shiny silver jewellery: Clean regularly with silver polish if you wish to maintain a bright shiny finish. Dry thoroughly after exposure to water to avoid tarnish.

Gold plated jewellery: Clean with mild dishwashing liquid diluted in water if needed. Avoid scratching or rubbing so plating lasts a long time. Avoid exposure to perfume and hairspray. All our gold plated jewellery is heavily plated.

Brass jewellery parts: Brass tarnishes faster than silver but can be easily cleaned with silver polish.
