Jewellery Care

Lynott Jewellery takes pride in hand-selecting quality metals with high-quality plating. However, some fashion jewellery (including plated, 925 Sterling Silver and expensive jewellery brands) can experience normal wear and tear over time. To extend the life of your jewellery, please give them occasional breaks and to keep them away from any moisture and creams.

Jewellery Care Tips

  • Keep items in the jewellery pouch provided when not in use

  • Avoid sweat or liquids

  • Wipe often with a soft cloth

  • Do not sleep in your jewellery

  • Avoid chemicals (especially hand cream)

  • Avoid bathing, showering or washing your hands with jewellery on

  • Wait for hand/face cream to dry before putting on any jewellery 

  • Apply a layer of polymer coating/clear nail varnish on the inside of your rings

Jewellery care for delicate items 

With thin or delicate items, please only pull it straight. Please do not twist it and do not use a twist motion when you opening or closing the clasp or the links may snap. If you twist it, it may snap. Put delicate items on last when getting ready and take it off first to avoid them getting caught. 

Green Finger

Traces of copper will be found in Gold/Rose Gold plating as this contributes to the colouring of the metal. In some extreme cases of sensitive, highly acidic skin, you may experience some oxidisation (slight greening). The other main cause of oxidisation is chemicals found in hand creams. This is, in fact, a common trait in even the finest of jewellery, 

If you are allergic or sensitive to metals or have had green tainting before then you are likely to experience the same reaction. Those that are sensitive to metals should not purchase copper/brass based jewellery and instead opt for  Stainless Steel jewellery.

We take no responsibility or liability for any reactions that may take place; It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure all precautions are taken as we are unable to know each individual's allergies and sensitivities.
