Caring for your Gold Jewellery
Naturally, gold has a tendency to scratch so extra care should be taken whilst wearing your jewellery. Avoid exposing your gold jewellery to perfume, cosmetics, moisturiser and other substances. Heavy lifting should be avoided when wearing rings on your fingers, as this can tarnish and misshape the jewellery.
To clean your ring at home, a non-abrasive cleaner like a soft dishwashing liquid, warm water and an old toothbrush works well. Be sure to rinse well and dry completely using a soft cloth before wearing.
I can buff out the scratches and repolish for a fee of $30. Please note, this will not stop scratches from occurring in the long run but will make the jewellery look like new again. For the most part, gold jewellery can be worn every day and ages well as time goes by, resulting in a naturally unique piece of jewellery.
Caring for your Sterling Silver jewellery
Due to the nature of some metals please keep in mind that the colour can slightly change over time. Sterling Silver can tarnish over time due to the nature of the material, especially if it isn't worn frequently. This tarnishing will disappear slowly with wear.
Sterling silver is a precious metal and may require cleaning from time to time. Sterling Silver can tarnish rapidly when exposed to salty air, chlorine, household chemicals and products containing sulphur. If this happens to you, remove tarnish using a non-abrasive silver polish and soft cloth and gently rub your sterling silver. Then use a soft brush or toothbrush and wash in warm, sudsy water, ensuring all polish is removed and carefully dry. This will remove the tarnish and dullness, keeping your sterling silver like new.
Store your jewellery in the original packaging.
Caring for your Gold Plated jewellery
Please keep in mind that gold plating is only a surface treatment that can wear away over time. To maintain gold plating, avoid water, swimming and wearing in the shower.
Always store your jewellery in a dry and secure place in its original packaging. If your gold plating seems to be fading, contact at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a re-plating.
Caring for your jewellery with Gemstones and Pearls
To keep your gemstones clean, avoid wearing jewellery during moisturiser, make-up and fragrance application. Take care to protect your jewellery from the impact of hard or abrasive surfaces. If your jewellery has a prong setting, avoid snagging the setting on clothing as this may cause loosening in the setting, risking the loss of a gemstone.
Earrings with Pearls should not be worn in water, swimming and showering. Always store in a dry and secure place.
