Each Jess Blak object is made with the finest materials and craftsmanship, please follow these guidelines to ensure your purchase lasts a lifetime.
Silver is not indestructible and if twisted or bent, joins can snap. your silver will tarnish and wear over time, allowing your piece to become truly unique, however if you wish to restore the original finish you may return the piece by paying the cost of postage for a polishing service.
Many factors can influence the condition of jewellery. therefore you should make sure that your jewellery is properly cleaned, polished and stored. please read through the care instructions to ensure your precious jewels are kept looking their best.
Always protect your jewellery from knocks, scratches, chemicals and extreme temperatures to minimise damage or wear. we recommend removing your jewellery when sleeping, when you shower or bathe and particularly when on the beach, in the sea and in chlorinated water. avoid spraying perfume or applying creams where they might come into direct contact with your jewellery.
Sleeping in necklaces can cause tangles that put stress on joins and can cause damage. stones set in silver should be worn carefully, as when worn silver will wear away and stones can become loose and dislodge.
Storage: to protect your jewellery, pieces should be individually placed in pouches or within a soft lined box to stop them being scratched or tangled. ideally, store your jewellery in a dark, cool and dry place and try to keep pieces separate, so that they don’t rub together or tangle up.
metal: silver jewellery will naturally tarnish over time. using a jewellery polishing cloth (available from most jewellers) is an effective way to keep jewellery looking shiny and lustrous. ideally, store silver pieces in an airtight bag to help reduce tarnishing. do not use tissue paper or paper towels to clean metal as they can cause scratching. do not use polishing creams or polishing cloths on plated jewellery, as it can remove the plating.
Jess Blak objects are ethical to the extent that it is possible. I am mindful of ethical practices and attempt to source my materials from local industries.
