Jewellery Care

All jewellery requires care and attention and doing so will ensure your's keeps in better condition for longer.

How to look after your Jewellery

To keep your jewellery looking beautiful and it's best for longer we recommend the following:

  • Remove your jewellery before showering, bathing and always before swimming in chlorinated water or the sea.
  • Keep your jewellery out of direct sunlight & avoiding exposure to humidity and extreme conditions.
  • Minimise contact with water, body lotions, perfumes, sun lotions, hairspray and cleaning products as these may lead to tarnishing over time.
  • When not worn, store your Jewellery in a cool, dry place or in the box/pouch it came with. Avoid keeping with other pieces of jewellery to ensure it doesn't rub or scratch.

How to clean your Jewellery

Sterling Silver
To keep your jewellery sparkling, we advise using a jewellery polishing cloth to gently rub your jewellery and remove any build up of dirt.

Gemstones
Gemstones can be delicate and exposure to hot water, chemicals and direct sunlight should be avoided.
We advise using a soft, damp cloth to clean your gemstones after wearing.

Silver Plated
Do not use silver cleaner or silver dip on plated jewellery.
Use a dry soft clean cloth and wipe gently. Try to avoid over cleaning.

How to prevent tarnish

Sterling silver will naturally oxidise over time and tarnish. By storing your sterling silver products in an airtight box or bag it should minimise this oxidisation process.
To remove tarnish, gently scrub your jewellery with a soft brush in diluted soapy water. Dry thoroughly then buff with a jewellery polishing cloth.
