Our jewellery is carefully handmade from a variety of materials including Sterling Silver, Gold Vermeil (18ct gold plated sterling silver), solid 9ct or 18ct gold and precious and semi-precious stones.
Please treat your piece of jewellery with care to ensure a long life.
Store your jewellery pieces individually so they don’t scratch, keep your chains fastened so they don’t become tangled and close hoop earrings. Silver and gold vermeil jewellery will naturally tarnish and oxidise with time and wear. Storing your jewellery in a sealed plastic bag will keep out the air that causes oxidation.
We advise not to swim, or shower while wearing gold vermeil jewellery, and remove rings when washing your hands. Chlorine, salt water, shower products, perfume, hairspray, lotions and deodorant can tarnish your jewellery (especially gold vermeil) and make them look dull. Avoid sleeping in pieces as they will have increased wear and pressure.
CLEANING YOUR PIECES
We plate sterling silver jewellery with high micron hard gold plating. Gold plating is a surface layer and will wear over time. Earrings and necklaces tend to get less wear than rings. We offer an affordable re-plating service to our customers. Please enquire at the store.
