At the bottom of the jewellery hide and oxygen found in air, clothes, lotions, chemicals etc. and causes the jewellery to be tarnished over time. Luckily there are many good ways to delay the process. Here is what you can do yourself to maintain the luster of the jewellery:

Storing

Store your jewellery in the zip-lock pouch that comes with the jewellery. Squeeze out the overflow air and seal it tightly! Avoid storing your jewellery in humid rooms, like bathrooms and showering rooms

Cleaning

Wash your jewellery frequently. Use warm water and diluted hand dishwashing detergent and gently brush the piece (and the chain) with a soft toothbrush. Air dry or wipe gently with a soft cloth or use cotton swabs, they are absorbent and do not give scratches, due to the softness. Tissue paper and paper towels can cause scratching.

Polishing

Wash it first, as described above. Then use the attached polishing cloth and rub gently to remove the discoloration and to restore the shine. The cloth is impregnated with a very finely divided polish. Polishing cloths are available at well-stocked goldsmith shops.

Please avoid wearing your jewellery when

  • Sleeping
  • Showering, sauna and bathing in both saltwater and chlorine water
  • While gardening, exercising, housekeeping etc.

Please remember to

  • Apply lotion, hairspray, spray deodorant and perfume before you put your jewellery on!
  • Check the lock regularly!

Jewellery that recently has been polished and surface treated by a goldsmith has a very special sparkle. It is unfortunately difficult to achieve exactly the same surface yourself. Remember that you can always send your piece to Lingon Design for maintenance & polishing. Your jewellery will look like new again!

Please contact us anytime if you need help or advice on taking care of your jewellery!

Please note! We can not be responsible for how you wear your jewellery. Scratches and knocks are part of normal signs of everyday wear!

 

For gold-plated jewellery

The Lingon Design jewellery is made with love for you and nature. We want to help you keep your jewellery as beautiful as the day you bought it.

At the bottom of the jewellery box there is a zip-lock pouch and a small polishing cloth for gold. Please read below how to use them.

The gold plating on the jewellery unfortunately wears out over time and the silver underneath will eventually appear. Luckily, there are many good ways to take care of your gold plated jewellery:

Storing

Store your jewellery in the zip-lock pouch that comes with the jewellery. Squeeze out the overflow air and seal it tightly! Avoid storing your jewellery in humid rooms, like bathrooms and showering rooms.

Cleaning

Wash your jewellery frequently. Use warm water and diluted detergent and gently brush the piece (and the chain) with a soft toothbrush. Air dry or wipe gently with a soft cloth or use cotton swabs, they are absorbent and do not give scratches, due to the softness. Tissue paper or paper towels can cause scratching.

Polishing

You can polish your gold plated jewellery as long as the gold layer has not worn off. Clean it first, as described above. Then use a special polishing cloth intended for gold and wipe gently to remove the discoloration and to restore the shine. The cloth is impregnated with a very finely divided polish. This is best suited for jewellery with a polished and smooth surface.

Please avoid wearing your jewellery when

  • Sleeping
  • Showering, sauna and bathing in both saltwater and chlorine water
  • While gardening, exercising, housekeeping etc.

Please remember to

  • Apply skin lotion, hairspray, spray deodorant and perfume before you put your jewellery on!
  • Check the lock regularly!
