Care Info 6
Silver with a Gold or Black Rhodium plating has had a thin coating of the precious metal electroplated to the surface of solid silver, as this is a surface finish it can wear away over time. Rubbing can, of course, wear away plated or coated surfaces. Some substances in our daily lives can affect plating and cause silver to tarnish prematurely. Soap, water, hairspray, chlorine, perfume, food, latex, perspiration, even heat and the natural oils on our hands can cause tarnish and plating to wear.
You should always remove jewellery before showering or swimming as metals can react with shampoo, chemicals and chlorine. Never allow leather to get wet. Wet leather will stay damp inside and deteriorate from within, this will loosen the bond within the clasp and affect the strength and look of the leather.
As with all jewellery, straps, links and clasps can be opened, damaged or broken if not treated with care. Please check your jewellery carefully when you receive it and contact us within 7 days if it is delivered faulty or damaged.
Your jewellery is fully guaranteed for 6 months against faulty workmanship or materials - although this does not cover accidental damage, misuse or wear and tear. If you have a problem with plating within 3 month s of purchase we will re-plate free of charge, after this time we will charge a £20 re-plating fee.
