How To Care:
To minimise prolonged exposure to moisture and chemicals that can cause tarnishing and wear, we recommend not wearing your jewellery while showering, swimming, exercising, or cleaning.
When not being worn, it’s best to store your jewellery in an enclosed jewellery box or similar container, or in our felt bag, which helps absorb excess moisture.
To clean your jewellery, gently wash it with warm water and a mild dish detergent. Use a very soft cloth or brush to get into recessed areas. Make sure to completely dry your jewellery afterwards with a soft cloth to ensure no moisture remains to prevent your jewellery from tarnishing.
Cleaning silver with toothpaste can produce sparkling results. Dilute toothpaste with a bit of water, polish the silver with a soft cloth, and rinse.
Note: Don't use toothpaste on silver-plated items, as it can corrode the finish.
BAKING SODA, BOILING WATER, SALT, AND ALUMINIUM FOIL
If toothpaste didn’t yield the results you were after, make the following chemical solution from baking soda, salt, boiling water, and foil to remove extra stubborn staining.
1_ Grab some aluminium foil to line the kitchen sink or a deep roasting pan. The dull side of the foil should be placed down.
2_The next step is to place the jewellery onto the foil and pour boiling water over the items, until fully covered. You should then add 2 tbsp—each of salt and baking soda.
3_Stir the solution thoroughly to ensure the baking soda dissolves in the mix, as granules may scratch the metal. The solution will cause any tarnish to be transferred to the aluminium foil. It may only take between 5 to 10 minutes to see a big difference in your jewellery.
4_ Gently drain the solution using a colander and rinse your jewellery in warm water, before drying with a clean cloth.
Note: We’re going to be honest; the solution can smell a little like rotten eggs… but we promise it’s worth it to remove years of wear in just minutes.
Rhodium and 14k gold are very resistant to tarnishing; however, frequent exposure to moisture and chemicals may still cause them to tarnish. We strongly suggest protecting your plated jewellery from interacting with any harsh chemicals such as perfumes, hand sanitiser, soaps, and cleaning products to prolong the lifespan of the plating. If the 14k gold vermeil product is quickly peeled off within one year of purchase, please contact us and we can provide you with a re-plate service.
Place your titanium jewellery in a bowl and allow it to soak for several minutes. Use a soft brush to scrub the jewellery. Pay special attention to engravings and stone settings. Rinse your jewellery in warm water and dry it with a micro-fiber cloth. If the jewellery still looks dirty, repeat the cleaning, rinsing and drying steps.
