Aftercare:

Jewellery care

Each of our products is made by some of the most skilled designers, jewellers and technicians in the industry. We offer a few pieces of advice to ensure that your jewellery’s quality is preserved eternally.

We recommend removing jewellery:

When you participate in activities with abrasive contacts on your hands,

When you shower or bathe and particularly when on the beach, in the sea and in chlorinated water

For activities which could result in your rings being knocked and damaged

Avoid spraying perfume or applying creams directly onto your jewellery.

Keep away from extreme temperatures, humidity and sunlight, and avoid wearing your jewellery when using bleach.

Storing jewellery

To protect your jewellery when not worn, pieces should be individually placed in the Blackacre leather-lined box to stop them being scratched. Ideally, store your jewellery in a dark, cool and dry place, and keep pieces apart.

Metals

We only allow our customers to use the most precious metals, which therefore have a lower propensity to tarnish when compared to other metals, such as Sterling Silver and 9ct Gold. However, over time all metals, when exposed to the elements, will experience some degree of tarnishing. This can easily be dealt with by using a soft, lint-free cloth to keep your jewellery looking shiny and lustrous.

Diamonds

Diamonds are the hardest material in the world as per the Mohs Hardness Scale. This means that they are incredibly difficult to scratch or mark, but does not make them indestructible.

For all of our diamonds and gemstones, we suggest hot water, harsh chemicals and cleaners should be avoided at all times. We advise cleaning your precious stones with a clean, soft, damp cloth after wearing. Very porous stones such as turquoise and emeralds should be cleaned using an untreated, dry, soft cloth only. Do not use tissue paper or paper towels to clean gemstones as they can cause scratching
