HOW DO I CARE FOR MY JEWELLERY - CLEANING AND STORING?
To ensure your gems and metals retain their best appearance, it is recommended to store your jewellery away from the sunlight or bright lights so that the original brilliance is maintained. Do not allow your jewellery to come into contact with perfume, lotions, hairspray, cosmetics or other chemical products such as cleansers and harsh soaps. Do not wear your silver jewellery in the shower, tub, pool and whirlpool!
STERLING SILVER naturally tarnishes when exposed to air, but it can be easily cleaned. We recommend using a buffing cloth that has been treated with an anti-tarnish formula to remove tarnish. Go To "OTHER GREAT STUFF" for our special polishing cloth. Wearing the jewellery will also preserve the finish. Keep silver in an air tight bag whenever possible. We do not recommend the chemical silver dip that you find at department stores. They are highly toxic and can damage your pearls and gemstones!
Gentle handling is recommended when removing your jewellery. Stand over a rug to be safe with large gemstones. Some of our jewellery uses very fine, thin metal wire to achieve the delicacy and intricacy of our work. This is quite durable for normal wear, but can be weakened if bent or pulled roughly.
Keep your PEARLS away from chemicals! Put your pearls on after your hairspray and perfume. Makeup or grime can be removed from pearls and gemstones with warm filtered water and a tiny bit of gentle handsoap, rub with a soft cloth to clean, and air dry.
If you must clean your gold vermeil jewelry, use a very soft cloth or gentle hand soap and filtered water. Do not use jewellery polish as the abrasives and chemicals will strip the gold layer.
ARE YOU ABLE TO DO CUSTOM / SPECIAL ORDERS? YES!! Special orders are always welcome! If you are looking for a piece of jewellery to wear with a specific outfit, send us a photo or colour swatch and we can work with you to design something special or guide you to a great choice for your specific needs.

CAN I SEND A GIFT?
OF COURSE! To let us know this is a GIFT, include your message to the lucky recipient with their name and address in the message box beside the item before you check out. We include beautiful gift wrapping and a personalized note card free of charge! If you can't decide what to buy, check out the GIFT CERTIFICATE page!
