Jewellery Care

All of Francisca Rendic Jewellery Designer products are handmade using sterling silver or Gold. All of the jewellery is made in Australia and made using Australian raw materials.

STORAGE

Remember to store your jewellery in a cool and dry place. Better results if stored your jewellery wrapping the jewellery separately in a moisture-free plastic bag. The reaction with the chemicals in the environment and body oils causes jewellery to naturally oxidise. However, it is very easy to keep it clean and bright if you know how and use the correct care products.

CLEAN

Use just a polishing cloth, as gentle rubbing and buffing alone will remove mild tarnishing. Polishing cloths are ideal as they are usually impregnated with a polishing compound, last a long time and give an amazing shine. Clean with soap and warm water and dry very well is another way to clean and remover the grease of the jewellery.

Avoid contact with perfume, hairspray, saltwater and cleaning products.

For oxidised sterling silver, which is intentionally darkened silver made by tarnishing it in a controlled way to increase detail and the appearance of depth in a design. Should be careful when cleaning oxidised jewellery though, as too much scrubbing and you will scrub the effect off!

For enamel painted with sterling silver, it is delicate as it is hand-painted. Therefore don’t use water or use soap, only polishing cloth to be used to polish.

For further polishing, a Customer Sales Service, provides services such as cleaning

and polishing, re-oxidising, removing scratches, ring re-sizing (depending on

the ring design).

But most important of all, wear your jewellery. Don’t tuck it away for special occasions, it will not tarnish any less. Take care of it and it will last a lifetime to be passed down as an heirloom for generations to come.
