Our jewellery is designed to be worn and loved for many months and years to come, but like most things in life they need caring for and sometimes a little TLC along the way.
Here’s are our tips to ensure your pieces stay looking fresh!
How To Care For Your Jewellery
Our animal jewellery is far too cute to only be worn a couple of times so let’s look at how to make sure they stay sparkling.
Reduce Exposure To Chemicals
It’s important to wash your hands…..But, take your jewellery off to do so when possible. Exposure to soaps, perfumes and lotions, including fake tan and hand-sanitiser, can result in the tarnishing of your jewellery pieces.
To prevent this we suggest that when you apply any of the above chemicals, you simply wait for a couple of minutes for it to settle, before putting on your cute jewellery.
Don’t Be Afraid To Take It All Off
We’re love seeing people about wearing our jewellery, but to keep your pieces looking their absolute best, it is recommended to remove your jewellery every time you wash, exercise or shower.
Store & Protect
Where you leave your jewellery when you’re not wearing it is just as important as when you’re wearing it.
The best place to store your favourite pieces is in a clean dry place, such as a jewellery box or a fabric lined case.
We would recommend that when possible, you keep your jewellery in an airtight container and out of direct sunlight to prevent fading.
If you don’t have the above, then the fabric pouch your jewellery comes in would be a good starting point to store your jewellery.
Also on a side note - we advise not to store different metals together as mixing silver and gold-plated jewellery for too long can result in tarnishing.
However don’t worry if you’re a mixed metal gal, styling together each day won’t cause any harm to the jewellery.
Clean With A Good Old Pamper
We normally look to polish our jewellery every few months. Being gentle is key! We would recommend either using a microfiber cloth or a specialist jewellery cleaning one.
NO products or chemicals are recommended for the jewellery
