CARING FOR YOUR JEWELLERY

Due to the handmade process and traditional fibres used in each piece, imperfections are normal and natural softening and colour change may occur overtime.

  • Extend the life of your jewellery by keeping it dry
  • Clean the metal of your piece with a soft dry cloth after every wear
  • Store your piece in a sealed box away from direct sunlight and humidity
  • Remove when showering, swimming or exercising
  • Avoid contact with make-up, sunscreen, lotions, perfumes or hairspray
  • Avoid contact with pale colour clothes as dyes used in your piece may not be colour fast
  • For sterling silver pieces – clean with a soft silver polish cloth carefully avoiding the natural fibres within the piece
  • For yellow and rose gold filled and brass pieces – clean with a soft polish cloth carefully avoiding the natural fibres within the piece
