JEWELLERY CARE

 

 Jewellery can become damaged , no matter how well it is made, depending on how you look after it. Please  read the advice given.

 Try not to wear your jewellery when asleep as it can sometimes lead to stretched chains and accidental damage.

  • Store your jewellery preferably in a sealed bag with the anti tarnish strip provided or

       in its packaging to keep it safe when it is not being worn.

 

  • Avoid perfumes and body creams, or household chemicals coming into contact with your jewellery (especially porous stones such as pearls and opals) They can affect the metal and cause the surface to tarnish or become greasy and dirty. Some household products are very strong and can affect surface finishes and even corrode the metal.

 

  • Take time to check your jewellery for any signs of wear and tear. Check clasps and stone settings etc.

 

  • Take off your jewellery when exercising or doing housework or DIY, as it can misshape and scratch your jewellery and possibly lead to permanent damage.

 

  • Plated and Oxidised finishes can wear off overtime. These effects can be reapplied.

 

  • Using a polishing cloth, regularly polish your pieces to keep them bright and tarnish free. The polishing cloth helps to protect your jewellery from tarnishing and keeps the surface looking bright and clean.

  • You can purchase silver dips which will restore your silver jewellery back to its bright silver colour. It is very important that you follow the instructions on the product. Do not dip oxidised, gold plated pieces and certain stones.
