Each piece of Clare Quinlan jewellery is handcrafted and requires appropriate handling. We use sterling silver and our gold pieces are all hand plated with 22K gold. All jewellery (including earring hooks and posts) are nickel-free. Damage from careless wear/storage is not the responsibility of Clare Quinlan Jewellery.
Jewellery and keepsakes are not toys should never be left with a child without adult supervision.
Here are some tips to ensure your pieces retain their beauty:
- Avoid exposing your jewellery to perfume, aerosols and cosmetics. This may tarnish and dull its appearance. Using a silver jewellery cleaner or polishing cloth to restore its shine easily fixes tarnishing.
- For pieces with a matte finish – using a small amount of toothpaste and a polishing cloth can remove some discolouring of sterling silver jewellery.
- Avoid wearing your jewellery while showering or cleaning. Household cleaners and soaps can contain chemicals that may be harmful to your jewellery.
- Avoid exposing your gemstones to salt water. This may dull and erode your beautiful stones.
- Avoid exposing sterling silver to chlorine as it can tarnish its sparkle.
- Always remove your jewellery before sleeping or participating in sport as it may be damaged.
- Store your jewellery in the pouch provided with your purchase and try to keep pieces apart so that they don’t rub together and become scratched or tangled. Our pouches also offer a degree of tarnish prevention and storing your jewellery in this way will keep the jewellery looking its best and keep it from being misplaced.
