Caring for your jewellery
Store unworn jewellery flat in a jewellery box or pouch to prevent scratches.
Remove your jewellery before engaging in practical activities, to ensure it doesn’t get accidentally damaged.
Try not to expose jewellery to household chemicals, perfume and hairspray, as these can cause precious stones and metals to tarnish and discolour.
Avoid storing your jewellery in damp or humid conditions as this causes tarnishing.
We offer a full cleaning, re-finishing and re-sizing service, please contact Hannah to discuss this
Cleaning your jewellery at home
Where possible we always advise that you opt for a professional cleaning service. If you wish to clean your jewellery at home, these are some suggested guidelines which you may find useful.
Over time silver jewellery can tarnish. Carefully use a soft toothbrush and warm soapy water to remove any dirt and clean around the granules. Ensure you dry the piece thoroughly.
You can use a silver or gold cloth to restore the shine to a polished piece.
Gold jewellery and diamonds and other gemstones may also be cleaned in warm soapy water, brushing gently with a soft toothbrush to remove dirt. Ensure you dry the piece well afterwards.
Take extra care when cleaning jewellery set with stones and pearls.
Restoring Surface Finishes
With wear matt surfaces can start to polish up when worn, this is especially true of rings. To restore a matt finish very gently rub the piece with a green scouring pad, in a soft circular motion in with warm soapy water. If you are unsure you can test this on the inside or back of the piece first. Ensure you dry the piece well afterwards.
Oxidisation is a surface treatment given to the silver. Over time with wear, this can start to rub back, exposing the silver underneath. This is particularly true of rings, as they receive more everyday wear. This worn affect can be very desirable as silver highlights are added to the piece. However if you would like the oxidised finish to be restored Hannah can provide this service.
