My pieces are made to be worn. However here are some recommendations to follow: avoid contact with cosmetics and perfumes and remove your jewellery before bed, shower or washing-up. Remove your jewellery if you’re going to do any manual labour, including housework to prevent it from getting damaged. Stones and Pearls can chip or crack if they’re knocked against a hard surface. Harsh solvents used in cleaning can damage any kind of jewellery and particularly pearls.
Sterlings Silver & Vermeil
Sterling Silver & Yellow 18ct Gold Vermeil tarnish naturally over time but more you wear them, less it is going to happen. If an oxidation mark appears, gently buff your jewellery with a jewellery polishing soft cloth, do not use tissue or paper towels, they can cause scratches. Wearing them often is going to preserve the Sterling Silver’s shine.
Pearls are delicate, they need proper care to last. It is better to put them on last and take them off first. Pearls are more vulnerable to cosmetics, vinegar, lemon and perfume. They do not like chlorine (neither in swimming pools or even regular showers). If you want to clean them, use a soft cloth with a bit of water.
After a few years, pieces that you have worn frequently could lose some of their platings. This is natural wear and tear, but don't worry the plating can be replaced in our ateliers. Don’t hesitate to contact us to receive a quote to restore your jewellery and give them a fresh new look.
With the correct care, your pieces will age perfectly over time.
