Jewellery Care

Below are our recommended tips to keep your jewellery clean and sparkling. If you have specific questions on how to care for the jewellery we created for you, contact us.

Please do not expose your gems and pearls to chemicals, including jewellery polishing compounds, hairspray, perfume, swimming pools, and ocean water.

Sterling Silver (non-plated) Jewellery

Our favourite silver cleaner can be made at home with Sunlight Dishwashing Detergent and baking soda.

Combine equal parts of Sunlight and baking soda to make a paste. Gently rub the paste on your silver piece.  Use a soft-bristle toothbrush to access small corners. Avoid contact with gemstones and pearls. Rinse in warm water. Dry immediately as sterling silver tarnishes when humid.

Polish and protect your jewellery with our polishing cloth. Loaded with polishing and anti-tarnish agents, it will give your jewellery a lasting shine. 

This works wonders on both polished and textured surfaces. Try it today and make your jewellery look new again!

If the tarnish spots persist on your sterling silver jewellery, apply a small amount of our favourite silver polishing compound Flitz, as follows: 

- While wearing protective gloves, apply the Flitz with a soft cloth.  Rub it well on your silver jewellery so that it removes tarnish while imparting anti-tarnish agents. Deep spots may require two or three applications.

- Make sure there is no paste residue remains before putting it in contact with skin and clothing.  

- Do no apply Flitz to any gemstones or pearls. 

To remove tarnish from sterling silver chains, try dipping them in a solution such as Town Talk Silver Sparkle. Please beware that this solution is extremely potent. Be sure to wear protective rubber gloves and avoid any exposure to gemstones and pearls as the solution will corrode them.  This solution may stain stainless steel surfaces so it's best to open the jar on a protective plate. Rinse the silver chain thoroughly after dipping them. 

Jewellery plated in Gold or Rhodium

Use a soft micro-fibre cloth to clean our designs handcrafted in bronze or silver and plated in gold or rhodium. Persistent spots may be buffed lightly with our polishing cloth

To preserve the plating for as long as possible, do no immerse your plated jewellery in water, especially chlorinated or salt-water pools. 

Do not apply any polishing compounds to plated jewellery as they will remove the plating layer. 


Make your diamonds sparkle again by cleaning them in warm water mixed with a small amount of Sunlight dishwashing detergent and the help of a soft bristle toothbrush. 

If in a pinch or when travelling, rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball will do the trick.

Gold and Platinum 

Gold and platinum do not tarnish and should require minimal care. Clean your jewellery with warm soapy water and dry it gently with a soft microfibre cloth. 

Be extra gentle when cleaning white gold jewellery as it is often plated with rhodium to give it an even brighter white finish. 

Avoid exposing your solid gold jewellery to chlorinated or salt water pools as the chemicals may react with and discolour your gold. Should this take place, we can re-polish your gold to restore its shine.
