Caring for your jewellery

After wearing, wipe your jewelry with a soft silver polishing cloth. Wipe the surface of your jewellery with gentle pressure to help prevent any tarnish and also to cleanse the metal of skin, perfume, food, taking care not to wipe any pearls that may be present.

We would also recommend removing rings when washing your hands or moisturising and in particular when doing the washing up - washing up liquid is one of the only substances that can actually wear down diamonds and pearls over time so that they lose their lustre. Avoid wearing jewellery when cleaning, doing exercise or playing sports.

Put your jewelry on last, after cosmetics, perfume, hairspray and other chemical substances that can be corrosive.

Store your jewelry pieces separately, in a jewelry box or pouches, to avoid scratching.

We would discourage using commercial liquid polish or “dips” on your jewellery, as these can sometimes be too abrasive and, when used too liberally, can also remove any deliberate oxidisation detail.
