Is my jewellery sterling silver?

Your jewellery is 99.9% fine silver, which is actually purer than sterling silver.  All the attachments, example chains, charm carriers or jump rings are 92.5% sterling silver.

Will my jewellery mark or dent?

Fine silver is a relatively soft metal, if it is worn everyday, on a charm bracelet with lots of charms or on a key ring, it will mark over time.

Regular polishing with a silver cloth will help to keep it looking new.

Are all the Accessories silver?

All accessories are 92.5% silver (sterling silver), whilst our charms are 99.9% silver.

Are you able to take any bespoke jewellery orders?

We are always open to ideas and suggestions and even try to design pieces of jewellery. We will let you know whether what you would like or suggest is possible to do. If we don't feel that we can provide you with a beautiful bespoke piece of jewellery then we will be honest with you and decline the opportunity.

How do I look after my jewellery?

Silver tarnishes naturally, the tarnish is caused by many everyday items. Good practice would be to remove jewellery before bathing and particularly swimming; chlorine will cause tarnishing. Regular cleaning with a standard silver cloth (available from us) will keep your piece in tip top condition.
