Our jewellery: Care tips
To keep your Fine Fellow in top condition, we would like to give you some care tips.
Sterling silver tarnishes when it comes into contact with skin, perfume or skin creams. The best prevention: Wear it often. When your Fine Fellow remains on your side, it polishes itself all by itself. However, it is better not to wear it while showering or bathing, sleeping or during strenuous activities.
Lukewarm soapy water and a soft toothbrush work wonders.
Use a silver polishing cloth to make your Fine Fellow shine again.
Do not use silver polishes or immersion baths. These are too aggressive and may damage the surface of your jewellery.
The gold-plated Fine Fellows are galvanically coated and can react sensitively to contact with skin creams, perfume and sweat. Also, it is better not to wear it while showering or bathing, sleeping or during strenuous activities.
If the gold plating wears off over time, the silver will start to shine through. Simply send us your beloved Fine Fellow and we will be happy to re-gild it for you for a reasonable fee.
Has your Fine Fellow suffered an injury and needs repair? We will be happy to discuss the best approach. This way we ensure an excellent repair at a fair price.

Silver rose gold plated
The rose gold-plated jewellery is just like the yellow gold-plated jewellery coated with a layer of 18ct gold by a specialised company. This layer of rose gold darkens over time as the copper in the gold alloy comes into contact with the oxygen in the air.
