Concrete Care…

  • Although concrete is strong, on a small scale it’s not indestructible. Please take care not to drop or knock your jewellery as both the concrete and enamel finishes are prone to chip and mark.
  • Prolonged contact with skin can cause a slight discolouration of the concrete and enamel finishes due to the natural oils in your skin but this will not harm you or the jewellery.
  • Although water will not damage the concrete it can harm the jewellery's finishing touches, where possible please avoid contact with water. 
  • Avoid contact with harmful chemicals, even things like perfume and moisturisers can damage and discolour the concrete.
  • You may want to polish up the metal aspects of the jewellery but please avoid getting cleaning solutions on the concrete as it can discolour the concrete.  
  • Otherwise, treat concrete jewellery with just as much love and care as all your other jewellery!
     

Silver & Brass Care...

  • For a simple clean, gently brush your jewellery clean using a soft toothbrush in warm soapy water. Once clean, rinse in fresh water then rub dry with a soft cloth or dry with a hair dryer. ( PLEASE NOTE - using a hair dryer is great on chain but be careful as the metal will heat up really quickly! )
  • To clean up more tarnished silver a polishing cloth or silver dip can be used. Check the instructions that come with each of these products before using.
  • Brass jewellery can be polished up using Brasso. Apply a small amount onto a soft, clean, cloth or soft toothbrush, rub into the brass and then clean off with a new clean, damp cloth. 
     

General Care Tips…

  • Storing silver or brass jewellery in an airtight container will prevent it from tarnishing too quickly.
  • Avoid getting jewellery wet where possible remove when washing up, bathing, showering or swimming.
  • Avoid contact with harmful chemicals, even things like perfume and moisturisers can damage jewellery, particularly plated jewellery.
