Jewellery Care

Our beautiful jewellery is handmade to last and stand the test of time. 

However, in order for them to be cherished throughout your life, our jewellery will need to be looked after with care. This is because we use natural materials, which can become damaged if not treated with a bit of love and attention.

 Below is a simple guide to help you care for your beloved jewellery.


Jewellery care


Store each piece of jewellery in its own separate box and wrap your pearls in a soft cloth to avoid them scratching each other.


Do and don’t

Avoid contact with chemicals, heat, and cosmetics.

After you have put on your perfume, make-up, hairspray, hand cream, or body lotion, wait at least 10 minutes before you put on your jewellery.

Remove your jewellery before handling cleaning products, gardening, and undertaking any household activity or physical exercise.

Jewellery should also be removed before entering a pool, the sea, or a bath or shower, as well as when exposing yourself to the sun.

We do not recommend sleeping with your jewellery on.



Check that the stones mounted in your jewellery are not loose; if such is the case, take your piece to your jeweller as soon as possible.

Take extra care if your piece contains gemstones or pearls, since many of these can be quite delicate. Hot water, chemicals, cleaners, and heat should be avoided at all times.


Cuff Bangles

Your cuff /open bangle should not be forced open or closed on the wrist. The opening must slide under your wrist bone on the outer side of your arm where the wrist is at its thinnest.




Clean silver pieces regularly using a good quality silver polishing cloth to prevent tarnishing.

The process below is used to clean silver jewellery that does not contain stones or pearls. Also, make sure your jewellery has not been oxidised for cosmetic reason, as this method will restore the silver’s natural whiteness.

To do so, cover the bottom of a bowl with a sheet of aluminium foil. Pour warm water into the bowl and add 2 tablespoons of baking soda. Then, immerse your jewellery in the solution and let it soak for 30 minutes. Rinse your jewellery in clean water and dry it with a soft cloth. To finish, polish your jewellery using a good quality silver polishing cloth to revive its original lustre.


To clean your gold and platinum jewellery, soak them for 10 minutes in lukewarm water (not boiling) with a drop of eco-friendly washing-up liquid. Then, to gently remove any dirt and build up scrub with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Rinse and dry with a soft cloth.



To clean your jewellery containing one of these gemstones, squeeze a drop of eco-friendly washing-up liquid in a bowl of warm water (not boiling) and soak them for 10 minutes. Then using a soft-bristled toothbrush, gently remove any dirt and build up, insisting around and underneath the stone setting. Rinse and dry with a soft cloth to finish.


Clean the setting with a soft toothbrush dipped in lukewarm water (do not use soap) and dry using a soft cloth.

These are porous gemstones, so never immerse them in water!


Wipe each pearl using a soft cloth dampened in lukewarm water. You can add a bit of mild soap if necessary. Wipe them a second time with a clean damp cloth to remove all the soap.  Finally, very gently dry each pearl using a soft cloth and allow your pearls to air dry properly before putting them away.
