Caring for Your Jewellery
Silver and Gold
Precious metals such as silver and gold are soft in nature. Treat them well and they will last forever. Silver and gold can be sensitive to acidity, moisture and chemicals, so avoid contact with moisturisers, perfumes, chlorine etc. If discolouration occurs due to contact with such liquids use polish cloth to restore sheen. When silver jewellery is sitting still for a period of time it becomes oxidised and discolouration can occur, this is a natural and inherent characteristic of silver. If you only wear your jewellery on special occasions we recommend you keep them in a zip lock bag. Tarnish does not occur as often in gold hence it's high demand and desirability. Clean with warm soapy water with a soft brush or with a polish cloth to rid of dirt or superficial scratches.
Brass is a very durable and beautiful metal often used in fashion jewellery, furniture and industrial features. Like silver it is sensitive to moisture and acidy so avoid contact with chemicals and water. In case of discolouration or tarnish use polish cloth to restore sheen or provided emery paper to maintain matte finishes. Similarly to silver, when brass jewellery is sitting still for a period of time it can become oxidised, this is a natural and inherent characteristic of brass. If you only wear your jewellery on special occasions we recommend you keep them in a zip lock bag.
