Great care has been taken in creating your jewellery. To protect it and contribute to its longevity, there are a few tips to follow:

Store your jewellery separately and in its original packaging as metals and stones can scratch when they come into contact with each other. Do not let your jewellery come into contact with household detergents or other chemical products and take care when spraying perfume.

Sterling silver jewellery: Silver jewellery will naturally tarnish over time, the amount of tarnishing (oxidation) that occurs is dependent on the skin and care habits of the wearer. We recommend cleaning your jewellery using lukewarm soapy water and a soft brush and then finish by polishing with a soft cloth to prevent the natural process of tarnishing.

Gold jewellery: To preserve the shine of gold jewellery, use a non-abrasive gold polishing cloth. White gold can be cleaned in the same way as yellow gold. Since white gold is not truly a white metal it is possible that in years to come the item, in particular the rings shank may take on a dulled tone. When this occurs the ring can simply be re-rhodium plated and it will look brand new.

Diamonds and precious stones: We advise against wearing it when in contact with extreme temperatures and rugged services. Stones may become loose over time and we recommend periodic examinations to assess the security of settings.Gentle cleaning is recommended with non-abrasive jewellery cleaner and we advise against ultrasonic cleaning. To clean diamond jewellery, we recommend gentle brushing with a mild solution of one part ammonia to six parts water.
