CARE & MAINTENANCE
It is important that proper care is given to ensure your stones always sparkle at their best. Dust, lotions, soaps and daily wear can cloud the brilliance and dull the surface of your jewellery and stones. We recommend using gold or silver jewelry cleaner - following the instructions as prescribed by the manufacturer.
Diamond Simulants (and coloured stones) should be given the same level of protection and respect as a diamond, even a diamond will chip/break if hit with force. Gardening and heavy lifting can expose your jewellery to damage - avoid wearing your jewellery during these activities. Hard and abrasive surfaces can damage your jewellery. Please take care to avoid any surfaces that may damage your jewellery.
RHODIUM, WHITE GOLD & STERLING SILVER
White gold jewellery is rhodium plated to produce a beautiful lustrous finish. To ensure your jewellery always looks its best, it will need to be re-rhodium plated periodically. This is standard for all white gold jewellery. How often it will need to be re-rhodium plated will vary depending on the type of wear and your natural acidity levels. The same also applies for sterling silver jewellery.
Gold vermeil is an overlay of gold over a base of sterling silver. Gold vermeil jewelry requires special care. Remember to store your gold vermeil jewelry in an airtight container when not in use—and to remove before applying perfumes, lotions, or before bathing. Chlorine, especially at high temperatures, can permanently damage or discolor your gold vermeil jewelry. Avoid wearing gold vermeil jewelry while using chlorine bleach or while in a pool or hot tub.To clean gold vermeil jewelry, buff VERY gently with a soft and dry 100% cotton cloth or a microfiber cloth. NEVER use chemical cleaners on 22k gold vermeil jewelry--it can strip the gold finish. It is natural for gold vermeil jewelry to tarnish with time—it adds character to the item makes it as individual as you are.
STORING YOUR JEWELRY
We recommend that you store your jewelry in the special pouch and jewelry box provided with your order. You can also store your jewelry in any air-tight container or bag. Proper storage helps to prevent scratching of stones and metal. It is best to keep jewelry away from extreme heat or moisture. Be careful not to place heavy objects on top of your jewelry during storage and to be gentle when putting on or removing your jewelry.
