Here are some of our tips about how to look after your jewellery


All of Sharon Mckinley's jewellery is hand-made and requires delicate handling. In order to keep your jewellery in the best condition, please follow a few simple steps:


. Silver jewellery  will tarnish over time and wear, so store out of direct sunlight to slow this  process down and protect your jewellery.


. Where possible, when not wearing your jewellery, store in the box provided or similar i.e. a jewellery box. Try to keep individual pieces separate to avoid scratching.


. It is good to polish frequently with a soft dry cloth to avoid tarnish and retain lustre. Should your piece become tarnished then clean with a silver cloth which you can purchase from most jewellery/department stores.


. To bring back sparkle from gemstones use warm water, a small amount of washing up liquid and a soft small brush, take care not to scratch the silver and rinse thoroughly.


. Avoid contact with perfume, creams, body oils and deodorants, they may contain abrasive chemicals that will tarnish and discolour your jewellery.


. To keep the condition of your jewellery looking like new remove when showering, swimming or when undertaking manual or domestic work.


. Following these simple steps will ensure the look of your jewellery is prolonged and your enjoyment extended.

Enjoy your jewellery!
