We design our jewellery to last a lifetime but to keep it looking as beautiful as the day it arrives take care when storing and cleaning your jewellery
The setting and the stones can both be damaged by sharp impacts that can occur when working with your hands, doing exercise etc. It is therefore best to remove them if you know you are about to embark on an activity that may expose them to risk.
Before sleeping we recommend removing your jewellery to avoid it being knocked and damaged in the night or becoming tangled.
Avoid bathing in a hot tub, showering, swimming in the pool or sea in your jewellery. Chlorines and other substances may tarnish and damage precious metals and erode gemstones.
Be aware that damp and hot conditions may tarnish and erode your jewellery. Keep this in mind when on holiday sunbathing.
Some of our 18 carat gold jewellery is plated with rhodium, which can give it either a bright, polished white gold finish, or a black sleek appearance.
Store your rhodium plated jewellery in its own pocket or pouch of a jewellery box or wallet to prevent it getting scratched .
It is normal for plated items to discolour over time, depending on amount of use and treatment. The repair specialists will be able to advise on replating. You can also contact us for the replating service
CARE AND CLEANING
Pearls and other organic or porous gemstones should be protected from the alcohol or acids in make-up, perfume and hairspray.
Jewellery dips and sonic cleaners can damage pearls and gemstones, and wear down rhodium coatings. Generally, jewellery should be cleaned with nothing stronger than very mild soapy water and a soft toothbrush, while porous gemstones and pearls require only lukewarm water.
Beauty products for skin and hair can react with precious stones and metals, causing your jewellery to tarnish, discolour and even possibly corrode. Please Always put your jewellery on last, after applying and cosmetics, scents and sprays.
