Care & Size GuideIn caring for your jewellery, it’s important to understand the vulnerabilities of precious metals and stones, and apply these to your lifestyle. To carefully maintain your precious piece, we recommend avoiding exposure to any impact, pressure or extreme temperatures. Metal, natural gemstones and even diamonds can crack or chip upon impact with the wrong object. Chemicals and some household substances can weaken metal or damage natural gemstones, even if not immediately apparent. The most important factor in caring for your fine jewellery, is understanding appropriate wear. As much as we want you to love and enjoy wearing your jewellery, its important to remove your jewellery when:
- Showering, bathing or swimming
- Applying cosmetic products or perfumes
- Exercising, especially at the gym
- Cooking, washing up, cleaning
- Gardening or doing any hands on work, where your jewellery is exposed to chemicals or force.
Depending on your professional life, you will need to carefully assess whether your piece should be worn during working hours. If in doubt about whether you should wear your piece in a specific situation, be safe and take it off. Adhering to these guidelines will assist in maximising the longevity of your piece.Thin band rings may misshape over time, particularly when worn on an everyday basis.

Each stone is completely natural and can vary its shade and colour in light. Pieces with stones require extra care, specifically those with precious stones. We recommend having stones checked every 4 to 6 months by a professional (based on regular wear), to ensure they are not loose. You can check this at home also, by gently tapping the surface of the stone and watching for any movement, or listening for any clicking (this should be avoided for soft stones such as opal or moonstone). If you have knocked your piece, or if you suspect a stone is loose, refrain from wearing the piece until it can be checked professionally
Special care stones
Special care stones include but are not limited to opals, moonstone and emeralds. These stones are soft and fragile, and therefore require special care and wear. Opals should be stored in a soft cotton cloth, and should not be exposed to hot water or rapid changes in temperature.
Avoid wearing earrings in the above scenarios. Do not wear your earrings if you feel your earring backs are loose, see a professional for a replacement back.
Avoid wearing necklaces in the above scenarios. When unworn, take care not to tangle fine chains. If a clasp appears as though it is becoming loose, refrain from wearing the piece until it can be checked professionally.
Polish your jewellery with a soft cotton cloth. If silver use silver cleaning cloth. Stone pieces (excluding special care stones) can be cleaned using warm soapy water and a soft toothbrush. Cleaning is a good time to check over your piece and check the tightness of stones. Avoid ultrasonic cleaners for micro pave pieces, or special care stones.
