Jewellery Care

 

Please note that each product is hand made by Emma and therefore unique. Slight variations in form and material are part of the unique character of her work. The purchaser is responsible for the care of the work. To make sure you take the best possible care of your jewellery, please take a look below for the specific care directions for the collection that your piece of jewellery belongs to. 

Hollows Collection

 

The Hollow Collection is made from Sterling Silver and Oxidised Silver with a textured satin finish.

 

  • Cleaning using silver dip is not advisable for oxidised pieces. The Oxidised Silver is what gives the centre of each piece it's black finish, all Silver will oxidise naturally over time, however to keep the surface of your jewellery from tarnishing too quickly you can occasionally clean it with an old, soft toothbrush and some washing up liquid or a mixture of baking soda and water.

  • Using a polishing cloth is not recommended on these pieces as they have a textured satin finish and this may dull the surface.

 

  • Try to avoid dropping your jewellery as the surface may scratch or dent. If you have a scratch that needs to be removed please contact me at info@emmawylie.co.uk or approach you local high street jeweller for a quote.

Surfaces Collection

 

The Surfaces Collection is made from Sterling Silver with a polished finish.

  • Silver polishing cloths can be used on these pieces. You can purchase these from most high street jewellery stores and a gentle rub from time to time will remove any tarnish that has accumulated on the surface and keep your silver looking clean and bright. 

  • All Silver will oxidise naturally over time and pieces with a textured surface can be enhanced nicely by this effect. However if you wish to keep the textured surface of your jewellery from tarnishing too quickly you can occasionally clean it with an old, soft toothbrush warm water and some washing up liquid or a mixture of baking soda and water.

Tips for General Jewellery Care

 

  • Remove your jewellery before engaging in practical activities. this will ensure that your jewellery does not get accidentally damaged.

 

  • Beauty products for skin and hair can react with precious stones and metals, causing your jewellery to tarnish, discolour and possibly corrode. I recommend removing all jewellery while applying cosmetics, scents and sprays.

 

  • Exposure to the environment can cause your silver jewellery to tarnish over time, however storing your jewellery in airtight boxes or bags will keep it looking newer for longer.

 

  • Damp or humid conditions can cause your silver jewellery to tarnish quicker than usual. Remove all jewellery before bathing or showering and do not keep it on a windowsill or near a radiator.
