Jewellery Care

We care for you and your jewelleries, so we want them to last ! 🤍

But first, let us explain to you the main materials used to create our jewelleries and how to maintain their shine:

Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% by weight of silver and 7.5% by weight of other metals, usually copper. It tarnishes when exposed to salty air, chlorine, sulfur, humidity, perspiration, cosmetics, household bleach and other strong chemicals. To prevent tarnish as much as possible, we recommend that you store your fine jewellery in a safe, dry place when not in use.

316L Stainless Steel

Made of a steel and chromium, it is considerably more durable than silver. Its bright and silvery finish, which is resistant to tarnish, is a popular and affordable choice for fashion jewelry. Unlike sterling silver, stainless steel jewelry is strong enough to withstand daily life and household chores.

Simply pour warm water into a small bowl mixed with some dishwashing soap. Using a soft cloth, gently wipe the jewelry until it is clean. Remove any remaining soap with a moistened cloth dipped in clean water.

Brass is a combination of pink copper and gray zinc, it has a natural matte yellow color that gives it a slight vintage look. Like 925 silver, brass oxidizes in contact with the air and over time. Non-allergic and it has a high degree in corrosion resistance. Oxidation is a surface phenomenon and it is easy to overcome, in order to keep its brass jewellery bursting.The two main things to do for proper care of brass jewelry are to store them in pouches or a jewellery box, and to protect them from contact with acidic substances.

Gold plated 

  • Plating is a process where a layer of gold is placed on to coat the surface of another metal. As the jewellery is not 100% solid gold, extra care should be taken to maximise its lifespan. Anything plated will eventually tarnish with time and wear. DON'T use any abrasives to clean your gold plated jewellery! So ignore all of the advice online to use baking soda or a toothbrush to clean your gold plated items! Anything abrasive will remove the layer of gold. This includes a lot of polishes used on real silver and gold as polishing metals usually involves slightly removing a layer of metal as you buff.
Here’s a tip for polishing up gold plated jewellery: spray some window cleaner onto a piece of kitchen towel and gently rub it over your metal.


 

Bellow you will find a few advices on how to make the most of your pieces.

Take them off during:

  • Household and outdoor chores
  • Showering, bathing or swimming in pools, hot tubs, hot springs and the ocean
  • Using lotion, hair products, fragrances and other cosmetics
  • Exercising at the gym or during contact sports
  • Preparing meals

How do I avoid my jewelleries from tarnishing so quickly?

 
1. AVOID WATER
By that we mean chemicals like bleach, chlorine in swimming pools and salt water (like the sea!). Hairspray, perfume, moisturisers and cosmetics are all liquids and they should be kept away from your jewelleries.
2. CLEAN OFTEN
We recommend using a polishing cloth regularly to prevent the natural process of tarnishing.
3. TAKE OFF AT BEDTIME
This is because we all sweat. We also recommend taking your pieces off when exercising for the same reasons.

4. STORAGE
Never store your jewellery in the  humidity of your bathroom. They should be stored away from natural sunlight and heat. We recommend keeping them in the jewellery pouch it was supplied in.
 
Please note: 
 
We cannot be held liable for tarnish on the products due to you not following proper jewellery care.
