Jewellery care


Jewellery is made to be worn, to adorn your body and accentuate your own beauty. The best place for your most loved pieces is on you, however they do need to be cared for and cleaned from time to time. 


Please remember to not wear your jewellery in the shower, doing housework, working out or while swimming. There is no need to risk anything happening to your beloved pieces. Jewellery is removable for a reason. I have heard many stories of rings being lost in the ocean, pendants getting tangled in wet hair and chains breaking… Please just take the extra few seconds to remove it and you can make sure that you will be able to pass it on to future generations unmarred and as beautiful as the day you bought it.


Silver jewellery can develop a tarnish over time, which can make your jewellery develop a somewhat dark patina and can cause it to look dull and less shiny. This is due to oxidation from moisture, chemicals in beauty products and hand sanitiser and your natural pH in your skin. Remember to take your jewellery off before sleeping or doing any of the physical activities above and storing it in the box it came in or in another jewellery box. Should tarnish or dullness happen, follow the steps below to bring your piece back to life. 


To clean silver and gold jewellery, use a small bowl and fill it with warm (not boiling) water and a small amount of dish soap. Place your jewellery into the bowl and leave it to soak for a few minutes. Then use a soft toothbrush (baby toothbrushes work great!) and lightly brush your jewellery, dipping the brush back into the water if necessary. Once you have brushed your jewellery, rinse it under cold water and dry with a polishing cloth or a micro fibre cloth. Please don’t use a tea towel or kitchen paper, as there are micro abrasives in them and they will add scratches to your piece. Be very careful with any stone set jewellery. As long as the water isn’t too hot it should be ok, but bear in mind that cracking or colour change are possible if proper care isn’t taken. 

Matte finishes will shine up with wear over time, making each individual piece even more unique to you. However, if you would like for a matte finish to be reapplied, please contact me and I will organise this with you.
