Caring for your personalised jewellery and stamps

Whether you’ve ordered personalised handprint, paw print or fingerprint jewellery, a little bit of care will keep it looking its best.

How to care for your silver personalised jewellery

As with all jewellery, it is advisable to remove it when using household cleaning products as these harsh chemicals can mark the sterling silver. The best way to clean your personalised jewellery is to use an impregnated polishing cloth to rub over the silver. However, make sure you avoid polishing the fingerprint/hand print area as this will remove the antiquing.  Liquid silver cleaners should also be avoided, as these will remove the antiquing and change the appearance of the silver.

 

If you wear your jewellery on a daily basis, or it comes into contact with other metals (e.g. keys), it is likely to scratch and show signs of wear, and detail may fade.  This is normal and to be expected.  You are advised to regularly check all jewellery findings and fittings (e.g. chain and bracelet clasps, jump rings, cufflinks and key rings) to ensure they have not been subjected to wear and tear.  If you feel any of your jump rings or clasps need some attention or tightening, please get in touch and I will be happy to help.

How to care for your personalised stamp

Each stamp is handmade and you may notice slight differences or variations in wood colour.  These slight variations all add to the charming character of your keepsake and help make it totally unique.  You can use your personalised stamp with ink pads of different colours to add variety and fun to your stamping 🙂  If you would like to clean your stamp you can either wipe it with a damp cloth or use a little bit of water and soap/washing up liquid and a soft scrubbing brush, but they shouldn’t need cleaning very often.  Take care not to get the stamp very wet as the label may get wet and soggy!
