We aim to ensure that all photographs are a clear representation of each product. However as a result of the individual nature and composition of gemstones, items may vary slightly in colour from those displayed on site. This can also be caused by variations in computer monitors.
We make every effort to ensure the most accurate descriptions of our items and to identify or disclose treated or synthetic stones. We get the most pieces reviewed by a highly regarded valuer in the trade.
Please note that stones in our pre-owned jewellery are not flawless and so there may be inherent natural imperfections in some of them. Diamond grades for colour and clarity are intended as guides, with the given limitations of mounts and settings, and are not guaranteed by us. Gemmological reports will be stated where they come with a piece of jewellery.
Pronounced "ver-may", this is a term used to describe sterling silver base metal that has been plated with gold. Please note that with time, vermeil can wear down so take care of your jewellery both when you are wearing it and when storing it. Due to the base metal being sterling silver, vermeil may be better for those who have skin allergies to other base metals.
Keep your jewellery in a dark, cool and dry place - ideally in a jewellery pouch.
Remove any jewellery when you shower, have a bath or swim to avoid damage or soap causing a film on your jewellery - definitely no jacuzzis, steam rooms or saunas. Take care not to spray perfume on your jewellery. Use a soft jewellery polishing cloth to help keep it shining.
Please note that gold vermeil on silver jewellery can fade over time. It is important to follow the instructions above to maintain it at its best for as long as possible.
Avoid wearing silver in chlorinated water as this will discolour it. Make sure that silver is stored away from excessive light and air as these can further tarnish the jewellery. If the silver is tarnished, you can use a jewellery cloth or jewellery silver dip to remove the tarnish.
