Caring for your jewellery
While gold does not tarnish like silver it can begin to look dull and flat over time. For most pieces that are set with stones, I suggest warm soapy water and an old toothbrush.
Soak the ring in very warm soapy water for a few minutes and then give the back of the setting a good scrub. Rinse again in warm water and dry with a tissue.
The diamonds should now be sparkling again.If the metal has become dull, then you need to let us renew the ring for you. If it’s one of our rings there is no charge. If not it will cost from £10-£20 depending on the piece.
Clean your silver regulary
To prevent silver tarnish build-up, a dulling that naturally occurs when silver reacts with sulphur or hydrogen sulphide in the ambient air you will need to clean your silver jewellery using polishes formulated specifically to remove tarnish.
Tarnish is most easily removed when it first becomes visible. Although wearing your silver jewellery often is the best way to prevent tarnish from building up, regular cleanings of all your silver items will prevent tarnish and keep your silver bright and sparkling.
Silver cloths are the best, I feel, for keeping your silver jewellery clean. If you are in any doubt about your jewellery, just call or email us and we will be happy to help.
