Caring for Sterling Silver Jewellery

Silver can tarnish over time. However, the amount of tarnishing is dependent on the skin and care habits of the wearer. Please avoid contact with perfume, skin creams, acidic skin ph etc. We also recommend that you do not wear your jewellery while bathing, in bed or during sporting activities.

To clean your silver jewellery, we recommend you use warm soapy water with a soft toothbrush and then use a sliver polishing cloth to restore its shine. Take extra care when cleaning jewellery with gemstones and pearls as some gems are sensitive to chemicals.

Caring for Gold/ Rose Gold/ Black Rhodium Plated Jewellery

Plating is a process of adding a layer of gold, rose gold or rhodium over sterling silver which in time can wear away. Avoid bringing your jewellery into contact with perfumes and lotions or swimming, take your jewellery off before showering and sleeping.

To clean gold, rose gold or rhodium plated jewelry, we recommend polishing it with a microfibre polishing cloth. We do not recommend cleaning with a liquid silver or gold cleaner or polishing with a pretreated jewelry cloth intended for silver or gold items with no coating. These cleaners can break down and shorten the life of the gold or rhodium plating.

For any questions about how to clean your jewellery please feel free to contact us.


Jewellery should be kept away from natural sunlight and heat, in protective jewellery box.
