Jewellery Care Tips
Sterling silver, 14k gold filled and 14k solid gold are all soft metals, so each jewellery piece should be stored separately to avoid scratching.
It’s best not to leave jewellery (especially sterling silver) exposed to air over long periods, as this will contribute to precious metal tarnish.
Tarnish is a natural process that courses a discoloration on silver jewellery and other precious metals and will occur over time when exposed to perspiration, skin acids and oils, cosmetics and hydrogen sulphide gas found in the air.
Jewellery should be cleaned regular with soft cloth to avoid tarnish.
In order to maintain the beauty of each piece, we recommend storing in the soft pouch provided when you’re not wearing your item.
Remember to clasp your necklaces and bracelets when storing, in order to prevent them from getting tangled.
If you find yourself with a particularly stubborn knot in a chain, the best tools are a needle and some patience.
Gold Plated Care Tips
All 14k gold is 58.5% pure 24k gold. Generally, the higher the carat weight, the softer the metal (14k is more scratch resistant than 18k or 22k).
Gold-plating is a method of depositing a thin layer of gold onto the surface of another metal.
As with any surface treatment, the gold-plating will wear off over time and use, to reveal the metal underneath. The wearing process can be slowed down if you take good care of your pieces.
All gold plating can be re-plated if needed.
