How to care for your Solid Gold

Caring For Your Solid Gold
We design timeless pieces in both 9k and 14k Solid Gold. Solid Gold should not oxidise or discolour and will stand the test of time and so we highly recommend choosing this option for any jewellery you wish to wear daily such as Engagement rings and Wedding bands or any favourite piece you want to hold onto forever!
 
Our top tips

The perfect addition to every outfit, follow our top tips for daily wear to ensure these exquisite pieces stay shining bright:

TIP ONE: As it’s a soft metal, gold can be susceptible to bumps, scratches, and dents. Be mindful whilst wearing and always remove when playing sport.

TIP TWO: Take your jewellery off before getting in a pool or spa as exposure to chlorine will weaken the gold’s structure and eventually lead to it breaking.

TIP THREE: Household cleaners with acids or abrasives will damage your jewellery’s finish. We recommend using rubber gloves or removing your jewellery whilst cleaning.

TIP FOUR: Put your jewellery on last when getting ready as makeup, perfume, hairspray, and lotions can damage the appearance of your gold.

TIP FIVE: Don’t wear your jewellery in the bath or shower as a build up of products will leave a soapy film on the gold.

 
Cleaning advice

To ensure your gorgeous solid gold jewels continue to gleam we recommend regular cleaning, which can easily be done at home:

Simply add a few drops of mild washing up liquid to a bowl of lukewarm water and soak your solid gold jewellery for about 15 to 30 minutes. Don't use hot or boiling water, especially if your jewellery contains fragile precious stones. Equally, don't use freezing cold water because any dirt will become harder to remove.

After soaking, gently scrub with a soft-bristle toothbrush (the softer the better!) to remove any hidden grime lodged in nooks and crannies. Next, rinse each piece in warm running water to remove any remaining dirt.

Finally, lightly blot dry with a soft cloth and let the jewellery sit out on a towel to air dry completely before wearing.

 
 

Storage advice 

We recommend storing your jewellery in a safe place, at room temperature, and out of direct sunlight. Choose a soft lined jewellery box to avoid any unwanted scratches!
