Jewellery Care Guide

925 STERLING SILVER

Made up of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper, 925 sterling silver is one of the most popular materials for jewelry making thanks to its durability. Unlike pure silver, which is too soft to work with, sterling silver is harder, making the metal perfect for more intricate and complex jewelry designs.

CARE

To maintain your sterling silver jewellery's brilliant shines, avoid any contact with water. While pure water does not damage 925 sterling silver, most water we come into contact with is not purified (i.e. those chlorinated resort swimming pools and luxury spas you like to soak in). To keep that enviable shine intact and make it a 'forever' piece, store your silver in an airtight bag that boasts anti-tarnish properties. Silver is delicate, so to polish it without scratching use either a special jewellery or microfiber cloth.

316L STAINLESS STEEL

316L stainless steel is otherwise known as 316L surgical-grade stainless steel. Made of a steel and chromium, it is considerably more durable than silver. Its bright and silvery finish, which is resistant to tarnish, is a popular and affordable choice for fashion jewelry. Unlike sterling silver, stainless steel jewelry is strong enough to withstand daily life and household chores.

CARE

Caring for your stainless steel jewelry is easy. Simply pour warm water into a small bowl mixed with some dishwashing soap. Using a soft cloth, gently wipe the jewelry until it is clean. Remove any remaining soap with a moistened cloth dipped in clean water. To maintain that beautiful shine, use either a jewelry polish or a special polishing cloth.

GOLD VERMEIL

Gold vermeil jewelry is popular and more difficult to pronounce than to care for. Vermeil (pronounced ver-may) is a special style of gold plating that is often also referred to as silver gilt. Vermeil is a gold coating that is laid over the top of a sterling silver base, which makes the jewelry more durable and gives it that prettier long-lasting color and shine.

CARE

To keep your gold vermeil jewelry looking beautiful and shiny, avoid any contact with chlorine, bleach and sweat (no it is not an excuse to ditch the workout). To clean, use a soft dry microfiber cloth to gently buff it. Do not use chemical cleaners, as it is likely to strip the jewelry of its gold finish.

SOLID GOLD

Gold in its purest form (24k) is too soft to work with. To make it more structurally sound and easier to work with, alloys are added. Typically alloys that are used include manganese, copper, palladium, nickel, and/or silver. This combination of pure gold and alloys create solid gold (AKA 14k gold), meaning your beautiful pieces will not tarnish or fade over time. And if you live an active life, you no longer have to worry, as this metal is less prone to scratching!

CARE

Show your solid gold jewelry some love by mixing lukewarm water and a few drops of dishwashing liquid in a bowl to clean it. Soak the jewelry in the soapy solution for a minute and then using a soft bristled brush (a toothbrush will suffice) gently scrub your jewelry. Remove any soapy residue by rinsing with warm water and blot dry with a soft microfiber cloth.

MOONSTONE

Often described as a dreamy stone, this ethereal gem channels the moon, which helps you get back in touch with your fierce inner goddess (think Beyoncé)! Carrying the meaning of 'new beginnings', this popular crystal helps you to become more in tune with yourself and your emotions.

CARE

To maintain your moonstone jewelry, avoid wearing it while doing any labour-intensive work (you might be happy to know this includes cleaning). Store your moonstone jewelry in a soft felt-lined box away from other jewelry to prevent rubbing and scratches. Clean your moonstone to retain the shine by washing it in lukewarm soapy water. Leave your piece to soak for 2-5 minutes, rinse off the soapy water and dry using a soft microfiber cloth.

LABRADORITE

While it may sound like a dog breed, Labradorite is a brilliant blue gemstone that is popular in jewelry making. Throughout history, shaman and healers have used this impressive gem to guide and heal. Not only are the vibrant hues eye-catching, Labradorite is also believed to protect you from negative vibes.

CARE

Prolong your love affair with your favorite Labradorite jewelry by showing it the love it deserves. Your labradorite gem prefers to be gently bathed in lukewarm soapy water. Use a soft bristled brush to gently get into the nooks and crannies. Once washed, pat it dry, and wear it again; yes, it is that simple!

OPAL

Opulent opal, as it is often described, was once the favorite gemstone of priests and royalty. Confident queens love the vibrant sapphire color that is thought to symbolize purity and wisdom. Opal is also the birthstone for October.

CARE

Give your opal the royal treatment by gently cleaning it with mild dishwashing liquid mixed with lukewarm water. Use a soft-bristled brush or microfiber cloth to remove any markings. Opal is not friends with bleach, chemicals and cleaners, therefore avoid using such products if you want to enjoy a long-lasting relationship with your jewelry.

ROSE QUARTZ

A true muse loves rose quartz. Its gentle pink appearance represents unconditional love and femininity, making it a comforting and nurturing gemstone.

CARE

Give your rose quartz jewelry that TLC it deserves. To clean; hold it under warm running water. Use a soft bristled brush to clean under the stone and in between its prongs.

DIAMONDS

Diamonds really are a girl's best friend. The superwoman of precious stones, the diamond is one of the hardest natural substances that exists. All our diamonds have been ethically sourced from our trusted suppliers.

CARE

Diamonds are forever, so treat them with all the love and care in the world. Despite their hardness, a diamond is not 100% resistant when it comes to chips.
To clean, mix lukewarm water with a touch of mild dishwashing liquid and clean with a soft-bristled brush. Once you have finished, be sure to rinse thoroughly to ensure there is no soapy residue.
