Care of your Silver Jewellery
Due to the purity of fine .999 silver, the jewellery is softer than .925 sterling silver. It is therefore more prone to scratches and signs of wear and tear, and needs to be carefully looked after. Please note that the black colour within the imprint and text may disappear over time, and with polishing.
Items should be carefully polished using a silver polish and polishing cloth. It is recommended that you take care not to polish inside the imprint, so as not to remove the black colour and fine detail of the print.
The Assay office requires any piece of Silver Jewellery over 7.78g to be officially Hallmarked. Where any of our pieces are affected by this, the cost of hallmarking is built into the price. We do not hallmark any pieces under this weight as standard. However, if you would like a hallmark added to your jewellery, please let us know and this can be arranged for a small charge. Hallmarking takes approximately 7-10 days therefore please allow for this extra time when ordering.
