WHEN YOU BUY JEWELLERY FROM TAMI&TAMI, WE WANT TO ENSURE THAT THE SATISFACTION AND JOY OF WEARING OUR SENSATIONAL, HANDMADE PIECE STAYS WITH YOU FOREVER.
CARING FOR YOUR JEWELLERY
By their nature, the items we sell are both delicate and robust. Yes, they are designed to last but when they are worn regularly, they can easily get neglected. To maintain their pristine appearance, by following these tips, you’ll be a shining example of what keeps jewellery looking its fabulous best!
LOOKING AFTER VERMEIL JEWELLERY
Make sure to remove your vermeil pieces before washing your hands, showering and exercising as Vermeil is not a sweat and water lover.
Make sure not to apply lotions, hand sanitizers, body oils, perfumes while wearing Vermeil jewellery.
Always take off your jewellery first, or applythe liquidsbefore wearing the pieces.Store in a safe and dry space, preferably in their box when not wearing.
LOOKING AFTER STERLING SILVER ITEMS
Sterling silver is particularly prone to tarnishing with age. This is because the silver corrodes when it is exposed to air, humidity and our natural sweat.
It also doesn’t take kindly to the chemicals that are often present in perfume, lotions, make up, hairspray, nail polish remover and body oils.Remove your silver jewellery before exercising, washing your hands or showering.
Always apply silver jewellery last thing when getting ready, so please avoid contact with lotions, make up and perfume.
LOOKING AFTER GOLD-PLATED ITEMS
Gold plating is also likely to degrade over time and, especially on highly polished pieces of jewellery, scratches can become more noticeable if they are used regularly.
For this reason, gold plated sterling silver jewellery does require care and attention to keep it looking in excellent condition.
LOOKING AFTER PEARLS AND GEMSTONES
Avoid direct contact with perfumes, lotions, hand sanitizers and other cosmetics. Make sure to put on your pearl and gemstones last thing when getting readyClean your gemstones with a clean, soft, damp cloth when needed.
WEARING JEWELLERY - FIRST OFF, LAST ON
Whether you are wearing rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings or other high-quality handmade jewellery items for special occasions, they should be the first thing you take off and the last thing you put on. Remember this and you won’t go far wrong.
At TAMI&TAMI, we also recommend that you keep away from exercising, showering or bathing when you are wearing your jewellery. Going to the gym should be a jewellery-free event!
If you can see a buildup of dirt, you can lightly wipe your jewellery with a soft cloth.Please make sure not to wipe too much as it can damage the surface of your jewellery.
STORING YOUR JEWELLERY
Where possible, store your jewellery pieces individually, preferably in a jewellery box. Ensure items don’t rub together, scratch or get tangled up. Take particular care with gemstones – it’s not good if they knock against one another when stored.
Keep your jewellery in a cool, dry place away from sunlight, until it is ready for use. Avoid leaving pieces out in the open where possible, to stop them getting damaged.
