What is tarnishing? Jewellery will naturally tarnish with exposure to the air, environment, perfumes, moisturisers, hairspray, soaps and perspiration. Tarnishing is a non permanent, chemical change in the surface of metal which darkens and dulls over time. Tarnishing will change the jewellery colour from white, through yellow, then to brown and eventually dark. Pollution, contact with chemicals and some skin types will increase the chances of tarnishing happening quickly. It’s difficult to avoid tarnish on jewellery. As tarnishing is a natural process you can either accept it as part of the ageing process of your jewellery or you could try to prevent it through proper jewellery care.

What is wear and tear? Wear and tear describes the general appearance that jewellery develops during its life. Metals are soft and can distort if squeezed or twisted. Repeated twisting may cause cracking and repeated abrasion may cause permanent changes to the surface. Wear and tear can alter the appearance of jewellery significantly.

We know & understand you love your jewellery but try not to wear it 24-7 as this will reduce a life of your piece. Put your jewellery on after applying hair products, hand and body creams, perfume and make-up. Remove rings when washing your hands and avoid swimming and bathing while wearing jewellery. All jewellery should be removed when engaging with activities such as sport and houseworks. We also recommend you put on jewellery last when dressing and take off first when undressing as well as we highly recommend to remove jewellery before going to sleep. While not wearing store your jewellery in the original packaging to avoid scratches.

Sovereign Body Jewellery does not take any responsibility for the tarnishing or damage which ensues from client actions / lack of proper jewellery care.
