GOLD AND PLATINUM are the ideal metals to wear for your wedding or engagement ring, but as with all jewellery they do need a little care and attention. Ensure that you remove your jewellery before taking part in activities in which it may become scratched or damaged (for example, washing up, weight lifting and rock climbing). Try not to wear your jewellery when it may be exposed to soap or chemicals as these can dull, discolour or damage the metals. Always apply any moisturiser or perfume and let it dry before putting on your jewellery. Over its lifetime your gold and platinum jewellery will become scratched. Many of us embrace this as a natural part of well-loved jewellery but if you have a particular occasion you would like your jewellery to sparkle for, then please get in touch.
