Jewellery Care Guide
Every piece of Luke Rose jewellery is exceptionally handcrafted to the highest standard, using only the finest quality metal and stones.
We want you to enjoy your Luke Rose pieces for many years to come, so there are a few simple steps you need to follow to keep your jewellery looking like new.
Silver and 9ct gold are both prone to tarnish if left in their packaging for long periods of time. You will notice that when you open your jewellery box for the first time, your jewellery has been packaged in small, air tight plastic bags, together with a small black anti tarnish tab. It is important to keep your pieces in these original air tight bags when it is not being worn. If you remove the jewellery from these bags and then store it in the box for long periods of time you will risk turning silver jewellery black with oxidation due to the moisture in the air.
How to wear your jewellery
Take extra care when wearing necklaces. Delicate chains can be caught on clothing or handbag straps without you realising. Your jewellery should be put on last when dressing and taken off first.
We do not recommend wearing your necklaces to bed as they can catch on pillow cases and sheets.
We recommend removing your silver and 9ct gold jewellery when you swim, bathe or whilst doing vigorous exercise, to avoid tarnishing and wear and tear.
It is important to never wear your silver jewellery in swimming pools or spa pools. The chlorine in the water will react with the silver, turning it dull with a slightly green patina.
Maintaining your jewellery
All Luke Rose Jewellery comes with a branded gold or silver polishing cloth. This can be used to gently rub your jewellery to bring back it’s original shine. We also recommend cleaning your gold jewellery with a soft brush and mild detergent or ammonia solution, making sure to rinse and dry the jewellery thoroughly afterwards.
