Care & Cleaning
Sterling Silver (925)
Sterling Silver is a precious metal that will naturally tarnish over time. This darkening of the metal is not related to its quality, it is a natural reaction of the metal to the oxygen in the air that can be removed by cleaning your jewellery. To slow down the tarnishing, we recommend that your jewellery is stored in a container (ideally a lined box or soft pouch) and away from direct sunlight. To remove the tarnished layer we suggest that you polish your jewellery with a soft cloth periodically.
Gold and Rose Gold Plate (18K)
All of our charms and chains are made from high quality 18 Karat gold plate. Gold plate may tarnish over time but the darkening of the metal is not related to its quality. It is a natural reaction of the metal to the oxygen in the air that can be removed by cleaning your jewellery. We recommend you to treat your jewellery with utmost care and attention. We advice you to remove your jewellery before going to bed, showering, doing housework or swimming and keep it in a jewellery box; avoid direct exposure to some chemical (solvent, hair spray, perfumes…) and high temperatures. We suggest that you polish your jewellery with a soft cloth periodically.
Our bracelets and necklaces are made using durable and colorfast polyester or satin braids.
Bracelets with braid can be worn at all times, however wearing them in the shower and regular contact with water may substantially reduce their lifespan.
In order to lengthen your bracelets lifespan, we would recommend that you remove it before showering, swimming and generally avoid contact with water.
We do offer a Restring Service in the event that your braid has become worn – or even if you just fancy a change of colour.
