JEWELLERY CARE GUIDE
The quality of our jewellery is extremely important to us and this guide will help you maintain that quality for as long as possible. There are several factors that can effect the wear and tear of jewellery so it is important to remember that jewellery is delicate and needs to be carefully looked after.
We strongly advise that you remove jewellery when washing your hands, showering or swimming because water and chemicals (especially chlorine) can affect the longevity of the gold plating, encourage silver to tarnish and dull gemstones. Always apply make-up, hair spray, perfume, moisturiser etc before putting your jewellery on as the chemicals in these can affect the jewellery.
Extreme temperatures and strong UV rays can cause gemstones to fade in colour and lose their original beauty, so do not keep jewellery in direct sunlight and remove it whilst sunbathing.
Cleaning and Storing Jewellery
To clean your jewellery and restore its shine we recommend that you use a clean, soft and dry 100% cotton or microfibre cloth to gently wipe the surface. Do not use a polishing agent or abrasive compounds as using these will wear away the layers of gold. Take care to store your jewellery separately so that it does not get damaged or scratched by other pieces. If possible store your jewellery in its original box, to help prevent tarnishing.
Gold and silver plated jewellery will also eventually tarnish or discolour if left out in the open air. To prevent this from happening, store your pieces in a cool, dry place, such as a jewellery box or the original Gold Lunar gift box.
