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.
Clean regularly with silver polish (cream silver polish and a soft cloth is best) if you wish to maintain a bright shiny finish. Dry thoroughly after exposure to water to avoid tarnish.
Gold plated jewellery
Our gold plated pieces are solid sterling silver covered with a layer of 18 karat gold. This layer will eventually wear off over time so please be careful to take care of your gold plated jewellery by following the below tips:
Clean regularly in a bowl of mild dishwashing liquid diluted in warm water gently, and rinse and pat dry thoroughly. Then very gently buff it with a microfiber cloth (like those used to clean eye glasses).
Avoid scratching or rubbing so plating lasts a long time.
Remove your gold plated jewellery before swimming, showering or excercising.
Avoid exposure to perfume, hairspray and body lotion. Put these on first and let them sink in to your skin before putting your jewellery on.
We may be able to replate your jewellery. You can contact us for a quote.
