We believe jewellery is meant to be worn every day. Most of the jewellery we sell requires very little care — just wear and enjoy. We do recommend taking off your jewellery when swimming, engaging in sports activities and to never apply perfume directly on the jewellery.
Here are some helpful tips to keep your jewellery looking its very best!
Silver | Silver tarnishes quite quickly when it comes into contact with oxygen or sulphur. Happily, the best measure to prevent this is wearing your silver jewellery often. The oils in your skin help prevent tarnish. (depending on your own body chemistry.) When storing your silver jewellery, use an airtight plastic bag (like a Ziploc) and if you can, put in a piece of chalk or a silica gel – these will help prevent tarnish while you are not wearing your silver.
If your silver is tarnished the best way to clean it is with a jewellery polishing cloth. There are also many viable home remedies for cleaning silver online too. Just remember that silver is very soft so use something like a very soft baby toothbrush to avoid scratching.
Gold | Mix a small amount of mild dish detergent with warm water in a bowl. Put the jewellery into the bowl and let sit for a few minutes. Use a soft toothbrush to gently scrub the jewellery. Remove the piece from soapy water, rinse it and dry thoroughly with a soft polishing cloth.
You can also use a polishing kit for extra shine and to remove any tarnish.
