Like all good things, your jewellery will sometimes need a bit of love and attention. To ensure you get the best out of your jewellery, here is a list of ways to look after your pieces.
- Water, Chlorine, perspiration, strong detergent and cosmetic products can all react with jewellery causing pieces to tarnish, and in some cases corrode. Always remove jewellery before swimming / showering and try to apply cosmetics and perfume before you put your jewellery on.
- Damp and warm conditions, along with prolonged exposure to air and sunlight, can cause jewellery to discolour over time. Where possible store your jewellery in a simple zip locked bag and avoid leaving pieces in bathrooms, near radiators or on windowsills as this can accelerate the tarnishing process.
- If you wish to give your silver jewellery some extra sparkle a silver dip or silver polishing cloth will restore the shine to your pieces but make sure that you wash off any product after cleaning with warm water and a soft cloth or toothbrush. Please note some stones may be damaged by contact with cleaning solutions so be sure to check the individual stones durability first.
