Cleaning and Care
Q: How should I care for my jewellery?
A: Jewellery is delicate and should be cared for accordingly. To extend the life of your jewellery, please follow these care instructions.
Take off your jewellery before your daily rituals such as: showering, lotion, perfume, exercise, washing dishes, etc.
Before bedtime, lay your jewellery out flat to avoid tangling/scratching.
For necklaces, clasp the necklace when removing it to assure the chain does not tangle or knot.
To fully remove tarnish and any stains on your silver or plated jewellery, we recommend using any anti-tarnish silver polish that can be found at your local supermarket or drugstore. Some brands that we have found to be effective include Tarn-X and Hagerty. Be sure to follow the instructions on the bottle and to always wear gloves when working with silver polish.
