Jewellery Care

Many factors can influence the wear and tear of jewellery. You should take the same care of your jewellery as you would your favourite piece of clothing. Here are some important tips to help you keep your jewellery looking its best so that you can enjoy wearing it for years.

HOW SHOULD I TAKE CARE OF MY JEWELLERY?

Always store your jewellery pieces individually, preferably in a box or pouch so that they don’t rub together, scratch or tangle. Particular care should be taken with gemstones to ensure that they do not knock against one another when stored. Also remember to keep your chains fastened so they don’t become tangled.

Take care to avoid extreme humidity or heat as this may cause tarnishing. With time and wear, sterling silver will naturally become oxidised and eventually tarnish. Storing silver jewellery in a sealed plastic bag or airtight box when it is not being worn will keep out the air that causes oxidation.

All our sterling silver jewellery is plated and high polished which protects the silver from exposure and helps reduce long-term tarnishing.

HOW SHOULD I CLEAN MY JEWELLERY?

Clean your jewellery carefully with a soft, non-abrasive and lint-free cloth; this helps maintain or bring back its shine. If necessary, you can use a mild washing up liquid with warm water and a soft toothbrush, then rinse with clean water and make it dry with a soft cloth.

WHAT PRECAUTIONS SHOULD I KEEP FOR MY JEWELLERY?

Always remember that your jewellery should be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off when dressing. Your jewellery is particularly susceptible to damage from the effects of chemicals present in perfume, hairspray, make-up, nail polish remover, body oils, sun tan lotion and deodorant.

Do not keep jewellery in direct sunlight as prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause many gemstones to fade and lose their colour. Amethyst, rose quartz, chalcedony and smokey quartz are just some of the gemstones that can become paler from exposure to sunlight.
