JEWELLERY CARE ADVICE

Marion Made Jewellery is designed to to be worn and treasured. It does need to be looked after and loves a bit of TLC. To keep your jewellery looking its best here are a few simple care tips: 

  • A silver-dip solution is the best way to clean both your silver and vermeil jewellery. Dip your jewellery in the solution for a couple of seconds only and then rinse thoroughly in warm water. For more stubborn dirt use tan old toothbrush to gently rub away and then rinse well.
  • A silver polishing cloth can also be used to gently buff your items to a high finish.
  • Silver dip solution will damage soft stones such as pearls so give them a rub with a soft cloth or use a specialist pearl cleaner.
  • Scents, lotions and potions can all react with silver causing it to tarnish, cause the vermeil to erode and damage stones, especially pearls. We recommend applying your products first & allowing a few minutes for them to be absorbed.
  • Avoid spraying perfume or hairspray directly onto your jewellery as this can damage it.
  • Jewellery should be removed when doing physical work,playing sports etc.
  • Hot weather and sweat can speed up the tarnishing process.
  • At night store your pieces in a cool dry place such as their box or a jewellery box.
