Jewellery Care

Thank you for purchasing Elsie & May Jewellery

To help keep your Jewellery looking clean and sparkly please follow the  guidelines below 

  1. Do not spray on perfume or other sprays while wearing your jewellery. Wear your jewellery after you have sprayed so that chemicals on the spray or perfume does not interact with your jewellery’s metal.
  2. Wait until your lotion or cream is dry or has been absorbed by your skin before you wear your jewellery.
  3. Substances like oil, nail polish, nail polish remover, chlorine, perfume and the like may react with metal/plated jewellery and will cause it to tarnish easily. This also goes with sweat, so make sure you don’t forget to remove your jewellery when you exercise or anything that would require heavy physical work, and also when swimming.
  4. Clean your jewellery with a cotton ball or a very soft cloth to remove any dust and dirt it has acquired. Gently rubbing the surface of your jewellery using the Elsie & May microfibre soft jewellery cloth provided. This is machine washable so can be used again and again.
  5. If your jewellery needs more cleaning you may clean it with warm, soapy water. Soak it for a few minutes. Stay away from jewellery cleaners and antibacterial soaps which may have certain components that will just make your jewellery tarnish more quickly.
