Care Instructions

Instructions for all products:

Silver tarnishes when it is exposed to the air. This process is called Oxidization and results in a tarnishing effect on the silver which is called Silver Sulphate. This is the chemical reaction the other metals and copper have with the air. This is what creates that blue/brown look on the silver. It can also leave marks on your skin if you haven’t cleaned the jewellery item. Therefore we recommend the following: 

  • Avoid contact with all liquids and chemicals, such as perfume, sea water, mayonnaise, ammonia, chlorinated pool water, hair spray and sweat. Contact with these substances will increase the rate at which tarnishing occurs.
  • Ensure your jewellery is not exposed to humidity and is not stored in direct sunlight.
  • Try to remove your sterling silver jewellery when at home so they are not exposed to the fluids mentioned above

All of our products where possible are Rhodium or Platinum plated to give brilliant shine and more durability. Having this plating will keep your sterling silver brighter for much longer that standard silver. From time to time due to age you may want to have the it replated and any jeweller can do this, we are not liable for loss of shine or tarnishing.

Where a product has care instructions, you must follow these instructions. We are not liable for any loss or damage in the event that the instructions have not been followed.
