Caring for your Rebecca Hearth Jewellery pieces is vital to their longevity. As much as we want you to enjoy wearing your jewellery, it is important to understanding the materials vulnerabilities and adhere to these guidelines will assist in maximising the longevity of your piece applying them to your lifestyle
Remove your jewellery when:
- Showering or bathing
- Exercising, in particular at the gym where lifting or heavy pressure can be applied e.g Yoga
- Cooking, washing up, or cleaning
- Avoid all cosmetic products including perfumes and hair sprays
- Any physical activity where your jewellery might be at risk of damage from force and/or chemicals. E.g. painting
- Avoid exposure to any extreme temperatures
As a rule of thumb for everyday life we like to say make your jewellery the last thing you put on when heading out, and the first thing you take off when winding down. And if ever in doubt, keep it safe and take it off.
We recommend storing your jewellery in a safe place when not in use, and preferably on a soft material to avoid any damage.
Damage can be defined as breaking, scratching, squashing, bending, chipping, staining, cracking or anything that has resulted in a change from the original state.
Not only do we want you to enjoy your jewellery but if anything has happened to your jewellery where care has been neglected this will void any warranty of that piece.
Tips to care for your jewellery:
If your Rebecca Hearth Jewellery is looking a little dull or tarnished the best thing to do is bring it in for a complementary clean, but if you are unable to do this or just want to do some maintenance here are a couple at home tips to bring back the sparkle. Soak your jewellery for a few minutes in some warm water with oil breaking soap (not moisturising) best is a dish washing detergent. Then using an old toothbrush gently move the bristles over all the crevasse to remove any dirt, then rinse with warm water. Wipe over with a silver cleaning cloth and watch it shine! This can be used on all metals in our collection.
