CARING FOR YOUR JEWELLERY
TO HELP KEEP YOUR JEWELLERY IN TIP-TOP CONDITION, WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU FOLLOW THESE SUGGESTIONS.
Using a soft natural bristle toothbrush and warm soapy water can remove build-up of dirt/discolouration.
Using a hairdryer (on a low setting) afterwards will help to avoid water marks on your jewellery.
Avoid contact with harsh chemicals, especially when wearing jewellery with gemstones.
Perfumes, lotions, and chemicals can all affect the look of jewellery over time.
Make accessorising the last finishing touch – Select your jewellery after you have applied make-up, perfume, and hairspray to avoid unnecessary contact with these chemicals.
Wearing your jewellery (rather than keeping it hidden away in a box) is the best way to avoid tarnishing on silver! Your skins natural oils help to form a barrier against oxidisation.
If you find your item of silver jewellery blackens when you first wear it, follow the above method of cleaning with a toothbrush & warm, soapy water.
Initial discolouration should fade within time. It isn’t clear why this can happen to some people’s jewellery, but from researching, it seems it could be attributed to medication, diet or even pregnancy
Do not swim or shower in your jewellery
STORING YOUR STERLING SILVER JEWELLERY
Sterling Silver loves somewhere cool, dark and moisture free to live.
Give your jewellery a little love with a silver polishing cloth after wearing and before putting away.
Fasten all your chains to stop them getting tangled, always fasten any extender chains on the last hole.
Store your jewellery in an airtight jewellery box or even in little airtight Ziplock bags or soft pouches and always separately as they can scratch each other.
Don’t throw away those little bags of Silica you get in your lovely new handbag, they are great moisture zappers so pop a couple in your jewellery box.
Finishes that are applied to our jewellery can alter over time, simply due to everyday wear. This is more applicable to rings and bangles; satin & frosted finished pieces may become shinier with wear and polished items can become slightly duller with time.
