CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Thank you for choosing Roxanne Rajcoomar-Hadden Jewellery. All our pieces are handmade. And like all jewellery, they are delicate and to be handled and stored with care.

 

CARE TIPS

Try to remove your jewellery when applying any, lotions or scents, especially with pearls. Chlorine is especially damaging to jewellery, to avoid damage, please remove before swimming.

Avoid storing Roxanne Rajcoomar-Hadden Jewellery jewellery next to costume jewellery, or jewellery that is not the same metal. Store jewellery separately so that pieces do not tangle, rub or scratch against each other. Lay long necklaces flat, or hang. Please use the pouch provided for everything else.

GOLD JEWELLERY

Pure gold is the only precious metal that will not tarnish. However,  it is a soft metal and care should always be taken with your gold jewellery. The higher the carat weight, the softer the metal; for example, 9 carat gold tends to be more resistant to scratching than 18 carat gold. We recommend that you wear rings of a similar carat together, e.g. your wedding and engagement ring. It is recommended to have your gold jewellery polished once per year. For polishing and repair services please contact rox@rrhjewellery.com

 

SILVER JEWELLERY

Sterling Silver is an alloy mixed with silver and other metals, usually copper. Pure silver is too soft for everyday wear; therefore, copper is generally used to give it strength while at the same time preserving the ductility of the metal and its beauty. As with most precious metals, sterling silver tarnishes; however, it is less likely to happen as quickly if regularly worn. All our pieces are handmade. And like all jewellery, they are delicate and to be handled and stored with care.
