Many factors can influence the condition of jewellery. Therefore you should make sure that your jewellery is properly cleaned, repaired and stored. Take care to avoid extreme humidity or heat as this may cause tarnishing. This will keep them looking their best.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Please follow these steps to ensure your beautiful jewellery lasts a lifetime.

Wearing
Silver Jewellery will naturally tarnish over time. Always protect your jewellery from knocks, scratches, chemicals, sunlight and heat/cold to minimise these effects.

  • We recommend removing jewellery when you shower or bathe and particularly when on the beach, in the sea and in chlorinated water.
  • Avoid spraying perfume or applying creams directly onto your jewellery.
  • Keep away from extreme temperatures, humidity and sunlight, and avoid wearing your jewellery when using bleach.

Storing
To protect your jewellery, pieces should be individually placed in a pouch or within a soft lined box to stop them being scratched or tangled. Ideally store your jewellery in a dark, cool and dry place, and try to keep pieces apart, so that they don't rub together or tangle up.

Cleaning

Metal
Using a soft, lint free cloth is an effective way to keep silver, 18ct yellow and rose gold vermeil jewellery looking shiny and lustrous. A silver cleaner can also be used to clean sterling silver pieces. Ideally, store silver pieces in an airtight bag to help reduce tarnishing. Do not use tissue paper or paper towels to clean metal as they can cause scratching.

Shells
Since many shells are quite delicate, hot water, harsh chemicals and cleaners should be avoided at all times. We advise cleaning your shells with a clean, soft, damp cloth after wearing.

Resin
The best way to clean cords on our friendship bracelets is to occasionally wash the piece with a mild soap in lukewarm water. Don't expose your resin pieces to strong lights, as this will make them yellow.

Nickel
We do not add Nickel to Giada Giachino Jewellery.
