Jewellery care tips

Want to keep your jewellery looking shiny and new for as long as possible?

Here are our top tips:

  • Apply beauty products and perfume before you put your jewellery on
  • Remove jewellery before swimming in the sea or pool
  • Store jewellery away from heat, sunlight and air
  • Store individual pieces separately, to avoid tangling and scratches
  • Store in a zip lock bag


Sterling silver jewellery can tarnish (this can appear as dark or black marks) when not worn. Tarnish marks can easily be removed with a jewellery polishing cloth - a purchase that is well worth it! You can also avoid tarnish by storing silver jewellery away from air (for example: in a zip lock bag).


Our gold fill jewellery might have a dainty and delicate appearance, but it is very durable and mostly tarnish resistant. It can be polished up with a microfibre cloth and washed gently in soapy water, to remove any build up of creams etc (a toothbrush can come in very handy for getting into small spaces).


We want you to be able to to enjoy and wear your A Box For My Treasure jewellery for as long as possible, so if you need your jewellery repaired get in touch:
