• Always protect your jewellery from chemicals, including perfume. Yes, your Britney Spears Fantasy is a chemical. Sterling silver is a soft metal and our gold is layered on top of this, so harsh chemicals can affect it over time, making it weaker, changing its colour and removing its lustre. We suggest putting on your perfume before your jewellery to the side of your neck, wrists or onto your clothes rather than your skin where your jewellery will rest for the remainder of the day.
  • Abrasive and hard surfaces can scratch your jewellery. Try to store your precious pieces in a soft lined box (like the one it came in - go figure) or a fabric pouch so that your jewellery pieces don't rub together.
  • Clean your jewellery regularly, using a professional jewellery cleaning cloth. This will ensure your pieces stay shiny and the exact colour that you purchased, for years to come. You can purchase one from our website over here. Always read the manufacturer's instructions first before using another type of cloth on your jewellery to make sure that it is soft enough for sterling silver and gold plating.
  • Pretty please avoid swimming in chlorine and salt water with your jewellery on. Over time, chlorine can cause damage to all metals as well as draining colour and shine from the pieces. Best to pop them under your beach towel and swim free and easy. The odd slip up here and there won't change the colour or tarnish your pieces straight away, but over time regular dipping will take its toll. 
  • Avoid wearing your jewellery while cleaning, gardening or doing hard heavy labour. Or just avoid hard heavy labour in general, yuck. Even basic household cleaning fluids have the ability to reduce the lustre of the metal, while harsher products will play havoc on the sterling silver and gold plating. As much as we want you to show off your shinys, save it for later. 
  • We know personal hygiene is key, but try to remove your pieces before washing the bod and hands. This is a precaution to ensure they remain in tip top shape forever, but they will not change colour or tarnish if you don't do this daily. If your piece happens to get wet, be sure to thoroughly dry your jewellery. Think of your jewels the same way as you treat your favourite dress, only you get to wear your jewellery every single day.
