Please note that all metals oxidise naturally with time and will require maintenance. Depending on your professional life, you will need to carefully assess whether your piece should be worn during working hours. If in doubt about whether you should wear your piece in a specific situation, be safe and take it off. Adhering to these guidelines will assist in maximising the longevity of your piece.
Take your jewellery off once a month and clean it under lukewarm water with a small drop of mild soap. Rinse everything under running water and buff dry with a soft cloth. For big tarnished spots we recommend that you to bring it to a trusted jeweller so your piece can be thoroughly cleaned by an expert.
Chemicals and household substances that can weaken or damage metals, even if not immediately apparent.
The most important factor in caring for your fine jewellery is understanding appropriate wear.
Taking off items when showering, bathing and swimming in chlorine pools.
Taking off items when applying cosmetic products and perfumes.
Taking off items when exercising. Sweat is very acidic and can harm your jewellery. In addition to this, contact with exercise equipment can easily damage the quality of the pieces.
Taking off items when cooking, washing up or doing any hands-on work, where your jewellery may be exposed to chemicals.
Frequent exposure to moisture and direct sunlight can quickly dull your pieces over time! We do recommend you use biodegradable zip bags to avoid items getting scratched and tarnished as moisture and humidity can cause oxidisation and tarnish your items, especially if you store your jewellery in your bathroom.
What do you do if your favourite necklaces become knotted?
To work through any knots, we recommend using a pin to gently untangle the chain. Take care to avoid being too heavy-handed, as you may break the chain. Generally, gently and patiently working on a knot will be effective. Chain products should be stored in their original packaging or carefully hung to avoid tangling.
