Jewellery care

Looking after your jewellery is important to keep it looking it’s best. It is recommended that you clean your jewellery regularly and store your pieces in a cool and dry place. It is advisable to store pieces that are not worn often in a sealable plastic bag or wrapped in acid free paper to prevent it from tarnishing.

Cleaning your jewellery
The easiest way to clean your jewellery is by using a soft toothbrush and soapy water (washing up liquid is perfect for this). Gently clean the piece and then pat dry with a soft lint free cloth. For silver jewellery you can also use a polishing cloth with embedded polishing material to clean any oxidation and get your pieces looking shiny.

Wearing your jewellery
To keep your jewellery in it’s best condition, it is advised that you remove it before showering and swimming (this is especially important for gold vermeil jewellery). Both chlorine and sea salt can tarnish your jewellery and in the case of gold plated jewellery it will wear away the layer of gold much quicker. Try to avoid spraying perfume, hairspray and applying creams directly onto your jewellery and remove rings and bracelets when using household cleaning products.

Silver jewellery
All our silver jewellery is made from solid 925 sterling silver.

Gold vermeil jewellery
Gold vermeil refers to pieces made of solid sterling silver covered with a layer of gold. Our gold vermeil pieces are plated with 2.5 microns (industry standard) of 18ct gold, giving the jewellery a durable gold finish.

We offer a cleaning and re-plating service for all our gold vermeil jewellery. Please contact us at [email protected]

Oxidised jewellery
Some of our pieces are available with an oxidised finish, giving them a black finish. This is done by using an oxidising solution to bring out texture or other detail on the jewellery. It’s important to not use any silver polishing product on these pieces as it will wear away the oxidised finish. It’s best to wash these pieces with mild soap and warm water and pat dry with a cloth. The black finish can fade slightly over time, especially where the jewellery rubs against the skin. When this happens, we can re-oxidise the piece for you free of charge.
