Caring for your jewellery

All Linda Macdonald jewellery is made from solid sterling silver with solid gold detail and will last a lifetime with the correct care and storage.
To help your jewellery be treasured for a lifetime, please -

  1. Store your jewellery away from exposure to air/environment. A zip/lock plastic bag is a very practical and cheap way to do this. This will be especially useful for silver jewellery, as it will cut down on tarnish significantly.
  2. Store your jewellery separately, so it doesn’t rub & scratch against each other.
  3. Do not store jewellery next to heating vents, windowsills or in the bathroom. Damp and hot condition will cause the jewellery to tarnish badly.
  4. Skin and hair products can react, causing the silver to tarnish. Apply any scents or cosmetics before you put on your jewellery.
  5. Remove jewellery when exercising, cleaning, gardening or any other rough or physical work.
  6. Try not to wear it overnight.
  7. Silver is susceptible to damage by chlorine and salt. Avoid wearing silver jewellery when using chlorine or bleach, or while in a pool, hot tub.
  8. Hot weather, bright sunlight and perspiration can also speed up the tarnishing process. Jewellery should always be taken off before the pool, shower or sea.
  9. A Silver 'Dip' solution is not recommended for our jewellery due to the oxidised effect we commonly use.  The best way to clean our jewellery is with a soft brush and fairy liquid followed by a rub with an anti tarnish silver cloth (available to buy at most hardware stores)
