OPAL CARE
Opals are delicate gemstones and require special attention. View opal care instructions here
 

STORAGE
Store jewellery separately in a protective box in a cool, dry place. This will protect your piece from humidity and prevent abrasion or scratching from contact with other jewellery. 
 

CARING FOR YOUR JEWELLERY

Always remove jewellery;

  • Before any exercise or sporting activities
  • Before coming into contact with water or liquid
  • Remove jewellery before sleeping
  • Before dressing and undressing to avoid the piece or prongs getting caught on clothing

Take care not to drop, knock or tap your jewellery on hard surfaces as this can crack your gemstone, and scratch or damage the plating on your jewellery.
 

PLATING & TARNISH
Tarnish is a natural and very normal process that can occur with silver and plated jewellery over time. This can be accelerated by exposure to certain substances, skin acidity, storage conditions, humidity and water.

  • To ensure your gold, rose gold and rhodium-plated jewellery continues to live its best life, avoid;
  • All liquids including water, salt water, chlorine, shampoo & conditioner, perfume, soap, make-up, fake tan, hairspray, cleaning products, lotions, oils and oxidising agents (like hair dye; peroxide).
  • Swimming, showering and washing your hands – always remove your jewellery first.
  • Jewellery must be removed before any kind of exercise. Sweat is a complex, natural thing (that contains sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, fatty acids and much more) and it can speed up tarnish.
  • Just like us jewellery doesn’t like extreme heat, direct sunlight or humid environments. These conditions can cause jewellery to tarnish rapidly.
  • Repetitive contact with a hard surface can cause wear and damage to plating over time 

CLEANING
Gently polish with a soft cloth. Don’t use any cleaning products as this can damage plating.
