For you to enjoy your item for many more moons to come, please look after your jewellery using the advice given below.
On average, gold plated jewellery can last about two years before the gold plating begins to tarnish and wear down. However, the length of time can be much longer with proper care.
Water generally does not damage sterling silver. *But* water does cause silver to oxidize (darken) more quickly, and what type of water and the chemicals in it has an impact on how much it will cause your silver change colour. Think shampoo suds, chlorine, perfume etc...
Here’s a list of tips on how to care for your Sunday Moon jewellery.
1. We do not advise wearing your Sunday Moon jewellery in the pool, sauna, steam room or jacuzzi as exposure to chemicals may tarnish or cause wear to your item.
2. We advocate maintaining a healthy mind and body, but please remove your Sunday Moon jewellery when exercising as sweating may cause the jewellery to tarnish.
3. The best way to store your jewellery is to place it in your tarnish-free Sunday Moon jewellery box, which is free from chemicals and will protect your item from the elements, which slows down the tarnish process.
4. Looking, feeling and smelling great is important to our wellbeing. Applying scents or cosmetics before you put on your jewellery will help to maintain your Sunday Moon jewellery as perfumes and lotions may tarnish them.
