JEWELRY CARE

18k Gold
To prevent damage to your white, yellow or rose gold jewelry, we recommend you store it safely away from other pieces to avoid unnecessary scratches. Gold should be kept away from harsh chemicals, such as cleaning and beauty products, to avoid discolouration to the metal.

All our 18k white gold has been plated with a white rhodium finish, this is a layer of plating applied to the metal to emphasize the bright white finish of the metal and can be especially susceptible to discolouration when brought into contact with chemicals. Should this occur, you can bring these into a Charles Krypell retailer (ideally wherever the piece was purchased) and they will contact us directly offer you a rhodium plating service to bring back that white shine.

 

Platinum
Platinum has the advantage of being a harder and more durable than most wearable metals, however, it needs caring for in a similar way to your gold pieces. It is still prone to scratching so should be suitably stored to prevent it from rubbing against other pieces you may have. Again we would recommend you keep this away from any strong chemicals to avoid damaging or weakening the metal.

 

Sterling Silver
Silver jewelry will naturally tarnish over time, the amount of tarnishing (oxidation) that occurs is dependent on the skin and care habits of the wearer. We recommend cleaning your jewelry using lukewarm soapy water and a soft brush and then finish by polishing with a soft cloth to prevent the natural process of tarnishing.
