Care Instructions:

Please treat and wear your jewellery with the utmost care. Never get it wet. Your jewellery should be cleaned regularly and gently, after wear with a soft cloth for the resin and a gold or silver cloth for the metal. Your jewellery should not come into contact with any skincare or hair care products or any household cleaning products, alcohols or smoke. It should also be stored away from UV light/sunlight and heat. Regular exposure to light will accelerate fading of pressed flowers. You can find full care advice and tips in our Jewellery Care section. Please follow this advice to ensure your jewellery looks it’s best for as long as possible. A card will be provided with your order with basic care information and a note to visit our website for full care instruction

Material Guide

We carefully choose high quality materials for all of our pieces. We are regularly asked about the materials that are integral to our collections so we thought we'd put together a little guide for you. We hope you find it helpful but if you have any further queries please don't hesitate to contact us, we love to hear from you!

14k Gold Filled and Rose Gold Filled

Gold filled jewellery is made by mechanically bonding a solid layer of real gold to a base metal core. Our gold filled jewellery uses 14k gold which is very hard wearing. It will last 10-30 years when cared for properly. In comparison, gold plated jewellery may peel, flake and fade within 12 months. So gold filled jewellery is great for those special pieces that you want to enjoy for years to come.

The gold layer must equate to 1/20th the weight of the item at a minimum to qualify as gold filled.

Sterling Silver

Sterling silver is a classic and many of you probably own many silver pieces already. It is a very durable and versatile metal.

Sterling silver is an alloy made up by weight of 92.5% of silver (hence the "925" stamp) and 7.5% of other metals, most likely copper for strength and durability. It is the addition of copper that can cause silver to tarnish but fear not, you can easily polish your silver jewellery back to a shine with a silver cloth. Though some wearers do prefer the look of darkened silver.

Raw Brass

We sometimes use raw brass in our designs. This is often an option we select for larger pendant designs where using gold filled is either not possible or would make the piece very expensive. It has the same beautiful golden yellow colour and is very durable. We polish it to a shine and add gold filled chains. Raw brass will take on a beautiful patina over time, some wearers like this look. But if you prefer it to appear golden, you can easily polish it up again. We prefer this to gold plate as there is no coating to rub away or fade and you can polish it back to a shine whenever you wish meaning that your jewellery will last beautifully for years to come.

Gold Plate and Rhodium Plate

Our plated collections are available in two finishes; gold plate and rhodium plate. These pieces are made from a base metal - usually brass - that has been plated with real gold or rhodium. Our platings are high quality at 3 microns thick.

Plated jewellery isn't as durable as gold filled, sterling silver or solid gold jewellery. It will inevitably fade with wear so be sure to follow our Jewellery Care Guide to ensure it looks it's best for as long as possible. This is not a fault or a flaw, it is the nature of plating and this is reflected in the price. For longer lasting jewellery we suggest sterling silver or gold filled.

Plated jewellery is an affordable way to emulate the look of finer jewellery. It's great for occasional wear and for updating your wardrobe to reflect the latest styles and trends.

Our plated jewellery is lead, nickel and cadmium free.

Rhinestones, Crystals and Cubic Zirconia

Sometimes we need a little sparkle in our lives and these high quality man-made stones are a great option. We only use Swarovski Crystals, Preciosa Crystals, high quality glass rhinestones and cubic zirconia. The stone type will be detailed in the applicable product description.

Semi-precious Stones

We love to use natural semi-precious stones in our designs from time to time. As each one is entirely unique, pieces featuring these stones will be available in limited quantities. We handpick all stones to ensure they are both beautiful and high quality. Please refer to specific product listings for more information.

Resin

We use hard acrylic resin in our Botanical Collection to encase pressed flowers. Our resin is non-yellowing and has a smooth glossy finish and the clarity of glass.

Though it is waterproof, it should not get wet as moisture can seep between the resin and metal causing irreparable discolouration. And though it is durable, we advise you take care to prevent scratches; avoid abrasive surfaces and materials and do not store your resin jewellery with anything sharp or abrasive.

Pressed Flowers

We grow and press most of the flowers used in our Botanical Collection ourselves in our North Yorkshire garden. We occasionally also source some of our flowers from other small UK businesses.

Other Information

As a brand, kindness and inclusivity are our key values. All of our pieces are vegan friendly which means we do not use materials of animal origin including (but not limited to) leather, fur, feathers, shells, "mother of pearl", silk, pearls or any other animal-derived materials. We also take care to remain respectful of religious and cultural symbols.

Jewellery Care

To keep your jewellery looking it's best please read through the care guide below:

  • Avoid contact with perfumes, cosmetics, sun protection, hair products, skincare products, oils, hand santiser, alcohol, household cleaning products and cigarette smoke.
  • Always remove jewellery before bathing, showering, swimming or washing - your jewellery should not get wet.
  • When dressing add jewellery last to avoid snagging/breakage.
  • At the end of the day remove jewellery first before undressing to avoid snagging/breakage.
  • Do not wear your jewellery in bed to avoid breakages and tangles.
  • When not in use, store your jewellery carefully in a cool place away from UV/sun light to avoid damage, discolouration and tangled chains.
  • Buff the resin gently with a soft dry cloth to clean away smudges.
  • Always keep your jewellery dry. This is super important. Water can seep under the resin causing the metal inside to darken or discolour. This will spoil your jewellery permanently as it cannot be cleaned out.
  • We also advise limiting UV exposure to preserve the colour of your flowers for longer. Do not store or leave your jewellery in direct sunlight as this will speed up the fading process.
  • Pressed flowers will maintain their natural colours for some years if cared for correctly. But like many organic materials, they will lose some colour over time, this is entirely natural and not a fault, it is something that cannot be prevented.
  • Our chains are of a high quality but please remember that they are not indestructible. Take care not to catch or pull them and handle gently to avoid breakages.
  • If you like to layer your necklaces take care during wear and removal to avoid tangling or breaking the chains.
  • Do not use tools to grip clasps and fastenings as this can cause damage and crushing.
  • Acids in skin, sweat and cosmetic products can cause oxidisation of metals inc brass, silver and gold: This reaction is completely normal and not harmful to you but could leave a darkened or greenish mark on your skin or clothes. You can reduce the likelihood of this occurrence by following the instructions detailed here.
  • Always clean your jewellery before storing it away. It will pick up products and acids from your skin which could cause discolouration if left.
  • Oxidisation and tarnishing is completely normal and will occur on most metals. You can buff the metal back to a shine with a silver or gold cloth. It is important to do this regularly rather than leaving tarnishing to become worse over time as it will then be much harder to clean.
  • We often use crystals and natural gemstones in our designs. Again, please remember that they are not indestructible and can be damaged or cracked if not handled carefully. Opals especially, like all our jewellery should be kept dry.
  • Please note that we will not be held responsible for any damage or breakages caused by accidents and improper care. This includes scratches, dents, broken chains, lost earring backs and any attempts to make alterations.
  • We want you to love and enjoy your jewellery for years to come so if you do have a little accident, please contact us as we aim to offer repairs at very fair prices.
  • If you lose or damage a stone, again we will aim to repair or replace at a fair price where possible. As natural gemstones are completely unique, the replacement stone is likely to be a little different.
  • Our jewellery is not suitable for children under the age of 14 years old.
