All pieces are handcrafted in Sterling Silver, Solid Gold and Gold Plated Silver and although all are durable materials, not totally indestructible. Please read the below tips for loving your jewels and keeping them safe and shiny.
Looking after your Gold
Angharad Gold jewellery is handmade in either 9K or 18K solid gold. Gold is one of the least reactive chemical elements and therefore will stay the most lustrous however a little polishing with a jewellery polishing cloth can go a long way. For every order we include a complimentary polishing cloth for both Gold and Silver.
Looking after your Silver
Silver jewellery will naturally tarnish a little over time. We recommend a jewellery polishing cloth to keep your silver shiny. For every order we include a complimentary polishing cloth for both Gold and Silver.
Looking after your Stones
All precious stones set in Angharad Jewellery are natural and the durability of each stone is dependent on its hardness. Daily life comes with knocks and bumps which can allow settings to weaken and stones to dislodge. To prevent this from happening we recommend taking off your rings before commencing manual labour/DIY and any other activities that may put strain on your hands and therefore on your rings too. Stones set in necklaces and earrings are a little more protected but are still vulnerable to swimming(salt and chlorine,) perfumes and extreme temperatures so best to take off your jewellery if you are entering a situation that could have a negative impact. Since many natural gemstones can be quite delicate, hot water, harsh chemicals and cleaners should be avoided, we recommend just using a dry cloth to keep them shining. We also recommend sending your Angharad pieces with stones in back to our studio every few years for a checkup and a clean. Alternatively you can take your jewels to a local jeweller who will be able to check on the settings too.
Looking after your Gold plated Silver jewellery
To ensure that your gold plated pieces remain as shiny as possible, we advise you not to wear whilst showering, exercising or swimming. Please be careful to avoid contact with oils, lotions, perfumes, makeup. We recommend that you take off your plated jewellery before exercise as plated jewellery and perspiration are not friends. Gold plated jewellery is a little more fragile and needs a little more love. Clean gently with a soft cloth and nothing else.If the plating wears off with time we can offer a plating service to get your piece looking brand new.
