Our jewellery is built to last, but proper care will help it last forever. Getting your silver and gold jewellery cleaned once a year is a good idea to keep it looking its shiniest, but you can keep it looking its best at home by following our top tips below.
Wrap individual pieces in tissue or cloth or put them in separate compartments in a jewellery box. Hang on to the boxes, bags and wraps that our jewellery comes in as they’re often the best way to store your jewellery in order to protect pieces from damage and dirt.
Sometimes jewellery tarnishes when it’s not worn, especially silver and gold. To maintain the lustre of your jewellery, place silver in an air-tight container or bag. Alternatively, anti-tarnish strips in your storage container will absorb the oxidants that discolour and tarnish jewellery.
When travelling with jewellery, use a case to protect your favourite pieces. Traditionally made of fabric or leather, a jewellery travel case can carry jewellery of all types and easily rolls up to a size that’s easily stored in most suitcases, make-up cases, or bags.
If it tarnishes, your jewellery can be cleaned using a very soft specialist jewellery cloth. Alternatively, silver pieces can be cleaned gently with a soft toothbrush and warm soapy water. Avoid using ‘dip’ polish or abrasive jewellery cleaners as these contain harsh chemicals and can destroy your jewellery over time.
We know you know how to wear jewellery but here are some tips to help reduce wear and tear:
While it is very rare, sometimes pieces can break – but don’t please panic as we may be able to help.
Simply email us on firstname.lastname@example.org with a picture of the jewellery and we will see what we can do to help.
We cannot offer a guaranteed fix or replacement as factors such as purchase date (general wear and tear will be expected) and the extent and cause of the break will have to be taken into consideration. If there is a fix available, we will always be honest and clear about the work involved and any associated costs.
Our sterling silver, gold and rose gold filled jewellery has a warranty of 12 months and our gold and rose gold plated products 6 months with proof of purchase.
