Jewellery Care

Pearl & Peach jewellery is high-quality, created using only Sterling Silver or 14K Gold Filled findings, so that your jewellery will last you for years to come. Of course, there are ways to properly care for your jewellery to ensure it maintains its quality for as long as possible. Simply put, caring for your jewellery is based on: what chemicals come into contact with it and how long for, how you remove these chemicals, and how you store your jewellery.

How to Avoid Tarnishing 

Avoid wearing your jewellery in the pool/ocean. If you forget to remove your jewellery before going for a swim, be sure to rinse your jewellery with lukewarm water and pat dry with a clean cloth immediately after swimming!

Avoid exposing your jewellery to sweat - remove your jewellery before exercising! If you do sweat while wearing your jewellery (which, let's face it, is unavoidable in the Aussie heat), rinse your jewellery with lukewarm water and pat dry with a clean cloth.

Avoid exposing your jewellery to chemicals such as sunscreen, perfume, body lotion, hairspray, cleaning products, etc. It is best to put your jewellery on after you have put on your skincare products, makeup, and perfume and let them settle into the skin for a moment. As for cleaning products, remove your jewellery when cleaning! 

Day-to-Day Jewellery Care

After each wear, gently remove any dirt, oils and skincare/makeup products by wiping your jewellery with a soft cloth. If your jewellery has been in contact with a lot of dirt/oil/products while wearing it, simply rinse your jewellery under lukewarm water and dry with a cloth. 

Remove your jewellery before you go to sleep - movement in your sleep may snag your jewellery, causing it to break! 

How to Give Your Jewellery a Deep Clean

  1. In a bowl of lukewarm water, add a mild dishwashing detergent or soap.
  2. Soak jewellery in the bowl for approximately a minute.
  3. Rinse jewellery with clean, lukewarm water a couple of times to ensure all of the detergent/soap is removed.
  4. Pat dry with a soft cloth - ensure jewellery is completely dry before storing.

Storing Your Jewellery 

Store your jewellery in a dark, dry location after you have cleaned it (either just a quick, daily clean or a deep clean). Keep your jewellery separate in your felt Pearl and Peach pouch to protect it from dust and to ensure that individual pieces do not get tangled together.
