Ashes Jewellery is exceptionally special because it serves as a reminder of a loved one and your unique bond. Looking after your jewellery is the best way to ensure its longevity and keep it looking its absolute best. Of course, every order from us arrives with comprehensive instructions on maintaining your jewellery’s optimal condition. We’ve explored the best ways to keep your ashes jewellery in perfect condition in this blog.
Avoid contact with water
Always remove your jewellery before it comes into contact with water. This includes swimming, bathing, and exercising. Remove it before cleaning too, especially when using bleach and bathroom cleaners. This is because water and certain liquids could cause potential harm to your item, particularly due to the presence of chemicals, salt or chlorine commonly found in water. Heated water might also trigger chemical reactions, resulting in discolouration. Incidental water exposure, like getting caught in the rain, should not pose any significant issue.
Regularly polish your jewellery
Regularly polishing your ashes jewellery with a sterling silver polish cloth will help maintain its shine and beauty. We would recommend against using liquid cleaning solutions.
Storing your jewellery
Your jewellery should be stored in its original box, in a cool and dry place. Keep your jewellery separate from other jewellery items, as this can help avoid silver tarnishing.
Take care on holiday
While on holiday, protect your jewellery from prolonged sun exposure and heat, and avoid wearing it while sunbathing (and swimming, of course!)
Avoid UV light
Never expose your jewellery to direct artificial UV light, including nail lamps and sunbeds.
Check your fixings regularly
Check your jewellery fixings regularly to ensure they’re working correctly and aren’t damaged.
Be aware of lotions and sprays
When wearing your jewellery, avoid contact with perfumes, lotions, and chemicals.
