Our jewellery is pretty hard-wearing but to ensure it lasts a lifetime and to keep it looking its best, we recommend that you adhere to the following advice.
Try to avoid bumping , scratching or sleeping in your jewellery as this could cause damage.
Do not submerge your jewellery pieces in water. Resin is not waterproof, only water resistant. So please remember to remove your jewellery before showers, swimming, washing up etc.
Store your jewellery out of direct sunlight. Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight or heat can cause the resin to discolour and soften.
Avoid exposing your jewellery to harsh chemicals or cleaning products. This includes perfume, hair spray, cleaning solutions, nail polish remover, antibacterial hand sanitiser etc. Solvents will react with the resin and cause it to become damaged or break down completely.
Silver will usually tarnish eventually. Silver will tarnish faster under certain conditions. Humidity, air quality (such as living near the sea), even body chemistry will affect how quickly it tarnishes. Silver can be cleaned with a sliver polishing cloth, but be careful not to use it on the resin part of your jewellery. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully.
If you encounter any problems please get in touch via our website.
To keep your memorial casts looking their best we recommend that you adhere to the following advice:
Our memorial casts are made from high quality durable plaster, but they are delicate ornamental items and should be treated as such. Casts should be handled with care only when necessary. Our casts are not fixed to display plinths so that you may display them in whatever position you prefer. Please take care when positioning casts and ensure they are placed securely and on a level surface to avoid falls.
Your memorial cast is suitable for display indoors only. They should be stored away from wet or damp conditions and should not be submerged in water.
Do not expose memorial casts to harsh chemicals or any cleaning products. They can be cleaned lightly using a dry soft cloth and you should avoid excessive rubbing.
