To help protect the durability of your jewellery, remove your jewellery when you shower, bathe or engage in heavy exercise, particularly when swimming in the sea or a chlorinated swimming pool.
Gemstones are natural and therefore can be prone to absorbing dirt and to chipping.
Avoid spraying perfume, applying creams or any other liquids directly onto your jewellery. It is better to put on your jewellery after you have applied your make-up and perfume.
Avoid wearing your jewellery when using bleach, cleaning products and other chemicals.
We highly recommend that you store your jewellery in the original packaging provided or another suitably lined box or soft pouch and place a small packet of desiccant crystals in the packaging which will minimise exposure to moisture. Although moisture will not damage your silver, it may cause it to tarnish more quickly.
To keep your jewellery looking its best and to remove the build-up of dirt and premature tarnish we recommend using a silver polishing cloth which are readily available in most supermarkets or online and are inexpensive. Rub the piece in one direction rather than circular motions.
A silver cleaner solution can be used to clean Sterling Silver pieces but we advise the above method in preference to silver cleaning solutions. This option should not be used where the piece has a semi-precious stone in the design as the stone may become damaged and lose its lustre.
Silver is a soft metal and prone to scratches so only use a silver cloth to polish the piece. You should not use paper towels or any abrasive material.
It is normal for silver to tarnish over time. However, if you care for your jewellery as outlined above then tarnishing can be minimised. If you would like us to clean your jewellery for you, please use the contact form to get in touch.
