Jewellery Care 101: Keep Those Gems Gleaming

Now, let’s get real about jewellery care. When you’re about to dive into activities that might put your precious pieces at risk, do the decent thing—take them off. That means household cleaners and chlorine-filled swimming pools are no-go zones for your bling. We don’t want any unnecessary drama.

And when you’re not flaunting those studs, make sure they’re comfy. Jewellery loves to be stored individually in a soft pouch or a box with compartments. Keep them away from harsh sunlight and ensure those harder gemstones aren’t getting up to mischief with the softer ones. We wouldn't want any catfights in the jewellery box, now would we?

Alright, let's dive into the world of White Gold! 🌟👑

So, White Gold is like the chameleon of the jewellery world. It's not just pure Gold; it's Gold hanging out with some other metals, like Silver, or Palladium. And here's the thing, depending on which buddies Gold invites to the party and how much of each metal they bring, White Gold can take on different shades. 🎨

The term "White Gold" gets thrown around a lot in the jewellery biz, but it's kinda like the word "white" itself – it covers a whole bunch of colors. Think pale yellow, slightly brownish, or even a hint of rose. 🌼🍂🌷

Now, when it comes to the exact mix of metals, there are a couple of recipes. One is the Gold–Palladium–Silver combo, and the other is Gold–Nickel–Copper–Zinc. But here's a little heads-up: some folks might be sensitive to nickel, especially if they wear it for a long time. It's like that one friend who's great at parties but can get on your nerves if they stick around too much. 😅

Now, if you're wondering about the Gold itself, it's rarely pure Gold. Even before its White Gold makeover, it often has a touch of something else in it, like a mercury alloy. And guess what? That can cause some people to have an allergic reaction. Ouch! 🤧

But no worries, when I get my White Gold from the EU, it usually leans more towards the Gold–Palladium–Silver mix. And for any vintage pieces or preloved gems, I give 'em a makeover with a splash of Rhodium. That keeps 'em looking fresh and shiny. 💍✨

And here's a pro tip: avoid taking your White Gold jewellery for a swim, especially in pools with lots of chlorine. Chlorine can be a bit of a buzzkill and speed up the fading of that Rhodium plating. Nobody wants that! 😎💧

So there you have it, White Gold, a bit of a mix but still a star in the jewelry world! ⭐✨

Shipping: The Glamorous World of Parcel Patience

Alright, my fellow sparkle enthusiasts, let's talk dispatch and delivery. Picture this: I’m a one-woman powerhouse, working tirelessly to bring you the finest jewellery. I aim to dispatch your glittering goodies the same day (because I'm just that efficient). But here's the kicker—being a boutique operation, my stock is as limited as my patience for non-sparkly things. Most of my treasures are shipped from my legion of talented smiths and suppliers to me on order.

UK Domestic Shipping: Fast but Fashionably Late 🚚

For my lovely UK-based customers, your sparkles will typically waltz their way to you in about 5-7 business days. Quick, but not quite instant gratification. I’m not Amazon! Think of it as joyous anticipation before the big reveal!

International Shipping: The Waiting Game 🌍

For my fabulous international friends, I need you to channel your inner zen master. Shipping times can vary wildly, anywhere from 5 to 30 business days. Why? Because customs clearance is a thing. Patience, darling. Good things (and sparkly ones) come to those who wait.

Out of Stock? Not Out of Luck! ✨

If the piece you’ve fallen in love with is out of stock, don’t fret! It’s available for order with a lead time of 4-10 weeks, depending on which of my brilliant suppliers is crafting your new favourite accessory. Just drop me a line about your heart's desire, and I’ll do my absolute best to meet your needs.
