Your jewellery can lose its shine when exposed to air over a long period of time. The loss of shine or tarnish is a natural process, not a defect, which can be recovered through various home methods or through a deeper cleaning in our Atelier (by appointment only). We strongly recommend that you follow the recommendations that follow, to ensure your jewellery remains in its original glory for a long time to come:
Remove your jewellery:
-before going to sleep
-before going to the beach
-before participating in any physical activity
-before performing your daily/night beauty routine
-before using cleaning products or harsh chemicals such as bleach, solvents, thinners or paints.
Exposure to certain chemicals or environments can compromise your jewellery. This includes (but is not limited to): perspiration (sweating), perfumes/colognes, cleaning products, chlorine, salt water, etc.

How to preserve your jewellery
- Ideally, store your jewellery either in its original box/cotton bag, or individual plastic bags, in order to avoid friction with other pieces.
- Absolutely avoid using rubber containers as they can cause accelerated staining and may cause the jewellery to darken.
- Keep your jewellery away from any exposure to direct sunlight or hot places
- Under no circumstances should you store your jewellery in a bathroom or any damp place.
Although our Gold plating is of exceptional quality (Vermeil - 3 micron layer thickness of Gold), we cannot guarantee that the gold plating on our items will last forever. Gold plated items are, by their nature, more fragile and prone to lose their colour over time. How quickly the colour fades will depend on a number of factors, such as whether chemicals are used on the skin, how much the wearer sweats, or the wearer's skin pH level. That’s precisely why it is especially important to ensure the proper care of your gold-plated jewellery.
