Guide to caring for your jewellery
Silver & Gold will naturally tarnish & discolour, as will Gold plated items. To get the most out of your jewellery here are a few things you can do to help maintain your jewellery.
It’s a great idea to remove jewellery when doing chores, manual work, showering or swimming.
Store your jewellery in its jewellery box when you are not wearing it.
Chemicals will adversely react with your jewellery, accelerating the risk of damage to the surfaces. Avoid contact with industrial & domestic chemicals, jewellery baths or dips, chlorinated water in swimming & spa pools, Sulphur, lotions, cosmetics, hair products & perfumes.
Gold plating will wear off over time. If you wear your jewellery every-day this will happen more quickly.
The best method for cleaning oxidized Gold, Silver or Gold plating is to carefully use a jewellery polishing cloth.
After cleaning, rinse your jewellery under running warm water and carefully dry with a soft cotton cloth.
