Your ToniMay jewels were lovingly handmade for you and will love you for years to come if you take appropriate care of them. Some pieces require more care than others so it is important that you follow the care instructions on this page.
To care for you ToniMay jewels please store them in a safe and secure place (not in your wallet!) to avoid dust, moisture and direct light that can cause tarnishing and damage. The box that your jewels were delivered in is a perfect home for them, provided they are not stored with other pieces that could put them under pressure.
We recommend gently wiping down your pieces between wear and before storage to remove any chemicals or body oils that have transferred to the pieces and may cause tarnishing or plating wear during storage.
We recommend you invest in a good quality polishing cloth to keep your jewellery clean and sparkling. Silver and Brass will naturally tarnish and oxidise as the metals react to heat, body oils and other chemicals during wear but a regular polish with a polishing cloth will help restore the shine. Please note that tarnishing is not considered a fault of the product, just a sign it needs a good clean.
Please avoid polishing any gold plated pieces as polishing can cause damage to the gold plating and cause it to lighten. Please also polish chains very delicately and avoid stretching or tugging them which can cause links to stretch or snap.
Please don’t wear your ToniMay while swimming, showering, washing your hands or while doing household chores. Contact with sunscreens, creams, hairsprays, perfume, salt/chlorinated water, soaps and chemicals can cause damage to the stones and metals we use in our pieces.
Please remove your ToniMay jewels before sleeping, working out at the gym or carrying heavy items. We recommend that your ToniMay pieces are the last thing to put on and the first thing to take off when getting ready for the day. Silver is a soft metal and can bend, warp and break under force. Necklaces can kink, stretch and snap during sleep or if tugged on or caught on clothing while getting dressed. Rings, cuffs and earrings can bend, snap and warp under pressure.
Gold plated pieces are best suited to occasional wear only as the plating will wear to expose the metal underneath if worn on a daily basis. Gold plating will wear on all pieces over time, however exposure to water, chemicals and polishing will also cause gold plating to wear more quickly. Please note that gold plating is not permanent. Our gold plated necklaces, cuffs and earrings are typically a silver base and gold plated so over time will lighten over time to expose the silver underneath where-as many of our gold plated rings are brass based which will oxidise over time due to plating wear.
Please avoid dropping your jewels or allowing them to come into contact with hard abrasive surfaces. Gemstones and silver can scratch, chip and crack if they are dropped or come into contact with rough surfaces like concrete.
