JEWELLERY CARE

LEJEUNE jewellery is carefully crafted from recycled 925 Sterling Silver and 24k Gold Vermeil. 

All 24k Gold Vermeil LEJEUNE pieces are plated to 4.5-5 microns, making it more hard wearing than standard plating. 

Sterling Silver can tarnish and although Gold Vermeil is more durable than standard plating, it's natural that the metal is still susceptible to wear and fading over time. 

We recommend you remove jewellery prior to showing, exercising and avoid contact with harsh chemicals such as oils, perfumes and lotions as this will accelerate the metal oxidising. Wear non-plated Sterling Silver pieces often to maintain their shine. 

Clean pieces gently with soapy water and a soft cloth or ultrasonic cleaner. Ensure jewellery is completely dry before storing.

Avoid rubbing against other metals and refrain from harsh and abrasive cleaning techniques as this can damage your jewellery. 

When not in use, we recommend you store your pieces away from direct sunlight in a jewellery pouch with silica gel, anti-tarnish bag or ziplock bag to minimise reaction with the air. 

Sterling Silver posts are naturally soft due to the high silver content, so we recommend gently bending them back into shape if accidentally bent.
