Care Guide

Every piece of our Noirdes Jewellery is made with exceptional craftsmanship from precious metals and natural gemstones, our jewelleries require adequate care.

To retain your jewellery’s beauty, we recommend referring to the care guide enclosed with your order or contacting our customer care team for further assistance.

 

Note: 925 Sterling Silver is an alloy made of 92.5% pure Silver and 7.5% Copper. This combination makes your silver jewellery items more durable to wear.

 

      Storing

      • It is recommended that you use a jewellery box with individual plush-lined compartments. This is to help avoid scratching by other items of jewellery.
      • All of our Noirdes Jewellery pieces come in their own beautiful packaging so you can keep them safe in that.

      Cleaning your jewellery (Silver & Gold)

      • If tarnishing occurs, you can clean your jewellery using jewellery cleaner or by soaking it soap and warm water. Afterwards rub it gently with a soft cloth, always remember to dry your Jewellery after exposure to water.
      • Special Consideration An “oxidised” finish is the deliberate blackening of crevices in the ornamentation of a silver object to make its decorative details stand out more clearly. This finish can be removed by overzealous cleaning and polishing.

      Gemstones

      Gemstones require special care. It is important to protect your jewellery from impact against hard surfaces and avoid contact with abrasive surfaces.

      Gold Vermeil

      • Our gold Vermeil jewellery has a thin layer of 18 carat gold on top of 925 sterling silver.  Gold vermeil is a common type of gold plating that you see in stores that sell fine jewellery. Not to be confused with regular gold plating. Vermeil is a much thicker layer of Gold which gives the pieces their long lasting colour.
      • Gold vermeil can wear off over time- Please use non- abrasive cleaning materials. If a cleaning substance is too strong it may remove the gold.

      • Always remove your jewellery before entering the water, including the shower and swimming pools.
