FASHION JEWELLERY & FINE JEWELLERY

The difference between fashion jewellery and fine jewellery is the quality of the metal used in the jewellery and the authenticity of the stones set into the pieces. 

Fashion jewellery is a great way to stay on trend and expresses your personal style without breaking the bank. However, cheaper jewellery is plated with thin silver or gold plating, normally they would wear off.

Sterling silver is a precious metal and may require cleaning from time to time. Using a small amount of silver polish on a soft cloth, gently rub the silver several times.

Gold should be cleaned regularly in order to maintain its beauty and patina. This would apply to all jewellery from all different stores.

CLEAN YOUR JEWELLERY

All metals can tarnish if in contact with harmful chemicals and even perfumes, moisturisers and essential oils. 

Jewellery dislikes chemicals and oils so be careful to remove when swimming, bathing or exercising and when doing housework or gardening. (or anything involves heat or moisture.)

Don’t bath or shower and apply lotion and perfume with the necklace on. Store jewellery in a box or a bag. Don’t sleep in your jewellery.  Don’t use any abrasive to clean it.

Using a dry, clean cloth, gently wipe your jewellery often to remove any oils that may have transferred from your skin. Even if not being worn, we still recommend regular cleaning.

SILIVER

Naturally tarnished when exposed to air, oils and other elements There are a few other factors that can also cause tarnish; some skin types, lotions, exposure to other tarnished jewellery and improper storage to name a few.

 Most people never suffer tarnishing, however, if your Silver Jewellery does tarnish, it causes no actual harm and can be easily resolved at home by cleaning with a Silver Polish Cloth.

GOLD:

Gold tarnishes very slowly, if left unworn in a jewellery box for a very long time, it might turn slightly dull. As with silver a polish with a cloth should be enough to make it shiny again. 

GOLD PLATED: 

Our gold plated jewellery are 18K gold plated over sterling silver, your plating will eventually rub  off with wear, that can happen eventually, you can always have it replaced which is not expensive.

The best way to prevent tarnishing is to keep your Jewellery oil free; always wipe it with a dry, clean cloth after wearing and never leave it out as being exposed to sunlight, air or moisture can increase the rate of tarnishing. 

If you have any other queries about maintaining your jewellery, please let us know!

BRASS

Brass is one of the most popularly used metals for jewellery, partly due to its resemblance to gold. It has been used since its creation in making beautiful jewellery designs.

Due to its affordability, workability and durability, brass is a very good choice for jewellery and is increasingly being used in the jewellery world.

GOLD FILLED

Just as gold-plated jewellery is plated with gold, gold-filled jewellery is as well, but there is a big difference between the ways these products are made. Gold-filled items have a much thicker layer of gold on them, and the gold is much higher quality. ... You can't say the same about gold-plated jewellery. Gold filled is more tarnish resistants
