Even diamonds if not looked after properly will not last forever. Our jewellery is made from high quality materials and good care is essential to maintain them in good state. Here are some tips on how to maintain the beauty of your colour couture jewellery.
General CareApply make-up and spray perfume before putting your jewellery on. This minimises the exposure to these chemical which overtime can cause damage.

Remove your jewellery when doing strenuous or high-impact activites. Take your jewellery off before swimming. Immersing some gemstones in water can cause permanent damage and chlorine wrecks havoc on jewellery.

care 3 Sterling Silver Storing silver in the open air and humidity for extended period of time can cause it to tarnish quickly. This is caused by oxidation and warm moisture in air.
It is important to regularly clean your silver items to minimise tarnishing and retain the silver shine. We would recommend a silver cleaning cloth. If using cleaning solution ensure it is intended for use on sterling silver. Don’t leave your jewellery exposed to the air when not in use; store them in jewellery boxes or pouches.
GemstonesClean your semi-precious gemstones using a moist soft cloth. Avoid using chemical cleaning fluids and ultrasonic cleaners.
