Here are a few tips on basic care, to maintain the quality of your delicate jewellery for as long as possible.
To improve the longevity of your items, we recommend removing your jewellery when swimming, showering, washing your hands or using cleaning products.
Chlorine, salt water and exposing your jewellery to humidity and prolonged sunlight can also damage or discolour gold vermeil items and certain gemstones which can fade and become dull over time.
As jewellery made from precious metals is susceptible to damage from chemicals present in perfume, make up, hairspray, lotions and oils, extra care must be taken to maintain the quality of your items. We recommend applying any such products prior to putting on your jewellery.
If items become dull you can use warm water and washing up liquid with a soft toothbrush to loosen any dirt, then rinse with clean water and pat dry with a soft cloth.
We supply a complimentary microfibre jewellery cloth with all of our items to help to maintain the shine and to add a little sparkle.

Plating/ Gold Vermeil
This a 2.5 micron layer of 14ct gold plating that is applied onto the sterling silver base layer.
Due to natural wear and tear the plating can wear away over time, more so on rings but the addition of this layer will help to increase the longevity of the jewellery.
Sterling silver will naturally become oxidised and eventually tarnish from exposure to air. All of our silver jewellery has an anti tarnish coating to minimise this natural occurrence.
All pieces are sterling silver with an anti tarnish or plated finish.
All pieces are stamped 925 & hallmarked if over 7.78grams.
