Taking Care of your Vintage Jewellery

Signs of age add to the unique appeal and story of your precious pieces, but to minimise unwanted damage try to avoid liquids, make up and hair products and where possible try to store flat in packaging to avoid storage wear and tear.
We are always happy to make any repairs whether you have purchased through our store or not.


Here are some tips for taking care of your vintage jewellery:


  1. Keep it dry - Water can cause many costume jewellery materials, such as metals and adhesives, to tarnish or break down over time. Avoid wearing costume jewellery in the shower or while swimming, and be sure to dry it thoroughly if it gets wet.

  2. Store it properly - Proper storage is essential for keeping costume jewellery in good condition. Store your jewelry in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight or moisture. You can use a jewellery box or a soft fabric pouch to keep your pieces organized and protected.

  3. Keep it clean - Regular cleaning can help maintain the shine and quality of your costume jewellery. To clean your jewellery, use a soft cloth or a gentle jewellery cleaner, being careful to avoid any delicate parts or embellishments. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials, as these can damage the finish of your jewellery.

  4. Handle it carefully - Vintage costume jewellery can be more delicate than fine jewellery, and can be easily damaged if mishandled. Be sure to handle your jewellery with care, and avoid exposing it to unnecessary stress or strain.

  5. Avoid wearing it during strenuous activity - Vintage costume jewellery can be more fragile than fine jewellery, and can be easily damaged during strenuous activity. 

  6. Check for damage - Regularly inspect your vintage jewellery for signs of damage, such as loose or missing stones, broken clasps, or damaged links. If you notice any issues, contact us or take your jewellery to a professional for repair

  7. Rotate your pieces - Wearing the same pieces of vintage jewellery every day can cause them to wear out more quickly. Try rotating your pieces, and giving them a break between wears, to help maintain their quality and longevity.

By following these tips, you can help ensure that your vintage jewelry stays in great condition for years to come. Whether you're wearing a statement necklace or a delicate pair of earrings, taking proper care of your vintage jewellery can help you enjoy it for many occasions to come.
