Caring for your Kit Heath jewellery

 To keep your Kit Heath sterling silver looking beautiful, we recommend you care for it in the following ways:

  • Silver cloths can be purchased from us or your Kit Heath retailer.
  • To bring back the sparkle to faceted gemstones, use warm soapy water and a soft brush, and rinse with clean water.
  • Clean textured finishes using warm soapy water and a soft brush, and rinse in clean water.  
  • Textured finishes and jewellery with rose and gold plate detailing we recommend for occasional wear only.
  • Sandblast finish can be cleaned with an eraser.
  • We recommend when wearing silver jewellery, avoid contact with perfume, hairspray and deodorant.  
  • We recommend you store silver jewellery in a cool, dry place and in a sealed ziplock bag.
  • Always remove jewellery before bathing or swimming.

 Pearls love to be worn, we recommend you care for them in the following ways:

  • The natural oils and moisture in your skin help maintain their lustre.
  • Avoid contact with perfume, make-up and creams.
  • Do not expose to excessive heat as this can dry out the pearls.
  • Wipe with a soft cloth or with a specialist pearl cleaner only.
  • Do not immerse strung pearls in water as this will discolour and damage the string and pearls.
  • Restring when knotting becomes loose or when the string begins to discolour.
  • Always store pearls in soft pouch and away from other items of jewellery.

Plated jewellery, such as gold and rhodium, continues looking beautiful when you:

  • Clean regularly using a non-abrasive jewellery cloth. Using a specialist cloth ensures the plating stays looking fresh, longer.
  • Just like sterling silver, we recommend keeping plated sterling silver away from everyday chemicals, such as perfume.
