Jewellery items are delicate and should be handled with care, please follow these care instructions to get the best wear out of your Alexandra Dodds Jewels.
Remove your jewellery when washing hands, using any detergents or chemicals of any kind, as they may tarnish and harm the finish and gemstones.
Sterling silver items will tarnish naturally, to clean gently wash under warm water with a toothbrush and baking soda, and polish with a soft cotton polishing cloth.
GOLD PLATED JEWELLERY
Jewellery that is gold plated consists of a 22 carat hard gold plate over sterling silver. Gold plating will wear in time and the silver beneath will start to shine through. How long this takes depends on the amount of wear and environment the piece is exposed to. Avoid contact with water, detergents or chemicals of any kind as this may tarnish the finish. If you would like your piece to be re-plated, Alexandra Dodds offers a gold plating service- gold plating and shipping charges will occur.
OXIDISED STERLING SILVER JEWELLERY
Some Alexandra Dodds jewellery pieces are oxidised to give them a black finish. Oxidisation is a treatment of silver which changes the surface colour of silver to black. It is a temporary finish and with wear will reveal the silver underneath, lending a stronger surface character. How fast wears depends on the amount of contact with skin, water, and abrasive surfaces. All oxidised pieces are finished with a wax polish to make them last longer. Store your oxidised jewellery away from your other jewellery to minimise wear and scratching and take jewellery off at night. Avoid all contact with soaps, detergents, chemicals and water. Alexandra Dodds will happily re-oxidise any piece free or charge, shipping charges will apply.
