HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR JEWELLERY?
Jewellery from Margaux Clavel will last many years if you look after it well. Although our jewellery is made from strong precious metals, it remains delicate and can still be affected by other metals, materials or chemicals you come in contact with on a day-to-day basis.
Please be conscious of what you are doing through the day and take your jewellery off if you think it might have a chance of getting damaged, like while exercising, gardening, showering, washing your hands, swimming, cooking, doing household tasks, …
GOLD PLATED PIECES
The gold plated sterling silver pieces are plated with 3 microns of 18 carat yellow gold. This surface treatment will fade over time because of contact with clothes, hard surfaces, sweat, perfume, hairspray, air pollution and others.
Everyday or frequent wear might speed up this process, especially on items like rings and bracelets which are more likely to get rubbed.
You can get your item re-plated. Get in touch to receive a quote for the service charge applicable.
STERLING SILVER PIECES
Sterling silver pieces might naturally tarnish and get oxidised, even if they are simply sitting in your jewellery box. You can clean them using a silver polishing cloth or any silver cleaning chemicals available on the market.
Avoid direct contact with chemicals, perfumes or cosmetics, avoid to pull chains, store your jewellery in a safe place and try to gently wipe your pieces with a soft cloth after each wear to remove any marks of make up or oils (from your skin), also try to get them checked regularly especially if stones are set on your piece.
All your pieces from Margaux Clavel can be repaired so do not hesitate to get in touch if your jewellery need a fix. Also email us if you have any questions on how to take care of your jewellery piece.
