To prevent silver from tarnishing the best thing to do is wear it regularly and store it in a dry place when it isn’t been worn. Such as a bedroom rather than a bathroom. Low cost silver dip or a polishing cloth can be easily used to remove any tarnishing and refresh your piece.
To attain our signature oxidised look a treatment is applied to the surface of sterling silver. This finish can get better with wear as raised areas become less dark and more contrast shines through. We do however recommend storing oxidised items separately to other jewellery to avoid consistent knocks against other metal and hard surfaces as this may cause the surface finish to wear more quickly.
If Gold jewellery becomes dull or tarnished use a gold cloth to gently rub any discoloration away. Many of our gold pieces have areas of high polish, such as the inside of rings or the backs of pendants so we recommend storing items separately from other jewellery to avoid scratches.
To maintain sparkle and lustre it is important to clean your pieces regularly. Most local high street jewellers offer this service. Often using an ultrasonic machine, which gently vibrates to loosen dirt from settings allowing light to shine through and your gemstone to regain sparkle.
