As with any jewellery, it is recommended to not wear it while bathing/showering, sleeping and exercising.
Gold Plated Jewellery
To protect your gold plated jewellery piece from tarnishing, avoid contact with water, cremes, gels, make-up and perfumes.
To remove any tarnish from your gold plated and silver jewellery, simply dip the piece into a specialist liquid cleaner for silver jewellery.
Although the piece comes with a thick golden layer, the plating will wear off over time. I am happy to repolish and replate your jewellery at a small charge.

Oxidised Silver and Stone Jewellery
To remove any tarnish from your oxidised silver and stone jewellery, it is advisable to use a soft silver polishing cloth which will bring your piece back to shine.
Oxidised silver does not give a permanent colouring and wears off over time, especially when it gets wet. I am happy to re-oxidise your jewellery at a small charge.
Copper Eletroformed Jewellery
Due to the organic nature of the electroformed jewellery pieces, they are more delicate and therefore need to be handled with extra care.
All metals oxidise over time. This is a natural process. However, copper oxidises quicker than silver. Applying a thin coat of nail varnish onto the copper might prevent oxidation in difficult to reach areas. Alternatively, placing the piece into a vinegar bath or jeweller's pickle should bring it instantly back to a super shine.
