Caring for Plated Jewellery
Items of “plated” jewellery are coated in a thin layer of precious metal. To decrease the chances of wearing this out, here are easy tips on keeping the luster of your plated jewellery. As it is a very thin layer of precious metal, extra care must be taken to maximize its lifespan and prevent damage.
- Do not spray on perfume or other sprays while wearing your plated jewellery. Wear your jewellery after you have sprayed on your favourite perfume so that chemicals in the spray or perfume do not interact with your jewellery’s metal.
- Wait until your lotion or cream is dry or has been absorbed by your skin before you wear your plated jewellery.
- Substances like oil, nail polish, nail polish remover, chlorine, perfume and the like may react with metal/plated jewellery and will cause it to tarnish or can remove the plating. This also goes for sweat, so make sure you don’t forget to remove your plated jewellery when you exercise or anything that would require heavy physical work.
- Never wear plated jewellery whilst doing the washing-up; doing hand-laundry; in the shower or bath.
- Never wear plated jewellery whilst swimming.
- Never wear plated jewellery in a sauna, steam-room or jacuzzi.
- Never wear items of plated jewellery whilst sleeping.
- After every use, clean your plated jewellery with a cotton ball or a very soft cloth to remove any dust and dirt it has acquired.
- If your jewellery needs more cleaning you may clean it with warm, very slightly soapy water. Stay away from jewellery cleaners and antibacterial soaps which may have certain components that will make your plated jewellery tarnish more quickly and may also remove the plated surface.
- To avoid scratches, wrap your jewellery in a soft cloth after cleaning or keep it in a jewellery box separate from other types of jewellery you have.
- Acidic diaphoresis excretors: with individuals who excrete acidic sweat, a rapid breakdown of any plating compounds may occur. Furthermore acidic sweat may also cause compounds within plated, sterling silver and non-solid precious metals to tarnish and stain the skin. We would strongly advise acidic diaphoresis excretors not to wear items of jewellery plated in precious metals.
Failure to adhere to the above instructions will void any guarantees or warranties.
Health & Safety
Pierced Jewellery: by its very nature, can be dangerous, and we advise you to use extreme caution when inserting, removing and wearing pierced jewellery. Items of pierced jewellery should always be removed before going to sleep.
You agree to absolve us of any responsibility of injury incurred as a result of our products. We strongly advise you to practice extreme care when using any items of pierced jewellery. Items of pierced jewellery should NEVER BE WORN WORN WHILST ASLEEP. CHILDREN SHOULD NEVER BE ALLOWED TO PLAY WITH, OR WEAR ITEMS OF PIERCED JEWELLERY. We would like to take this opportunity to remind you that due to UK Health & Safety regulations, all pierced jewellery is non-returnable and non-refundable.
Choking Hazards: Many of our products come with small parts, which over time may become detached, this could result in the detached piece being swallowed and result in a choking hazard. We strongly recommend that you take good care of your items, so as to avoid loose parts. You agree to absolve us of any responsibility of harm arising from detached or other small parts, which may be viewed as choking hazards.
Necklaces: by their very nature, necklaces can become caught on foreign bodies and result in injury. We strongly advise you to take extreme caution whilst wearing a necklace, and you agree to absolve us of any responsibility of injury arising from wearing one of our products.
Bracelets/Bangles: these items can snag or get caught on foreign bodies, which could result in injury. We strongly advise you to take extreme care when wearing one of these items. You agree to absolve us of any responsibility of injury arising from wearing one of our products.
Children: None of our products are suitable for children. Children should not be allowed to wear or play with any of the items we sell. You agree to absolve us of any responsibility of injury to a child which has been caused by one of our products. We strongly advise you to keep any items which could cause a choking hazard or injury away from children.
Allergic Reaction: We endeavour to manufacture our products from allergy-free materials. However, due to the extremely varied and complex nature of allergens, we cannot guarantee that our products are allergy-free for everybody. If you have any history of allergies, we strongly recommend that you only purchase items which are made from solid precious metals. We would strongly advise against anyone with a history of allergies of any kind from inserting pierced items made from plated base metals into their body. The plating on such items may become worn over time, resulting in the base metal being exposed and increased risk of allergic reaction. In rare cases, where an individual excretes acidic diaphoresis, a rapid breakdown of any plating compounds may occur, resulting in higher rates of allergic reaction.
Furthermore, acidic diaphoresis may also cause compounds within plated, sterling silver and even gold to tarnish and stain the skin; for example: green is common with gold, and black staining is common with silver. We would strongly advise acidic diaphoresis excretors to only wear stainless steel or solid platinum jewellery, as silver, gold, palladium and titanium can cause an allergic reaction in these people.
Nickel Intolerance: none of our jewellery contains nickel. However, we would strongly advise against those with a nickel intolerance from wearing jewellery containing palladium. Recent research has shown that a tiny proportion of people who suffer from nickel intolernace may experience a similar reaction to palladium.
In the unlikely event you develop an allergic reaction to one of our products, you agree to absolve us of any responsibility for this reaction.
