Caring for your jewellery Care for silver plated jewellery as you would your silver jewellery. Protect it from perfumes, hairsprays and other cosmetics as these can erode the plating. Store it in an airtight box or bag out of direct sunlight wrapped in acid free tissue paper to protect from tarnish and handle and wear with care.Remove tarnish from plated items with a polishing cloth but reduce the amount of polish used as over exposure can remove the silver or gold plating.Unlike sterling silver or gold, plated jewellery will eventually wear quicker and easier. Proper cleaning, maintenance, and storage are critical for extending its life usage. Warning As jewellery contains small parts these present a choking hazard and a risk of fatal injury. We recommend close adult supervision of any child wearing jewellery.
We do not accept orders for under £15.00 (excluding postage) We reserve the right to refuse any order.
