Care of Jewellery
Care should be taken to preserve the lustre of the silver and colour of the stone. Black onyx is a gem stone and because like many gems it can damaged by chemicals and oily products treat it with respect. The possible consequence of using such aggressive solutions may result in the discolouration of the gemstone. To minimise the damage therefore we recommend removal rings and bracelets before washing in detergents, chemical cleaning products and hand / body lotions.
We do not recommend a jewellery dip as this may affect the gemstones. We favour a silver polishing cloth, carefully avoiding the gemstones. If you need any advice we will be pleased to help.
