Care & Materials Guide
The Esq Jewellery range carries pieces of 925 sterling silver rhodium plated, 18K gold plated, 14K & 9K solid gold jewellery. Details of each piece, including materials and dimensions, can be found in their respective descriptions available online.
Our gold-plated range is designed to resist rusting or turning blue or green on the skin. They are suitable for everyday wear; however, to maintain their longevity, it's essential to follow our care guidelines, as plated pieces may fade faster over time without proper care.
It's crucial to note that all Esq Jewellery pieces are crafted from 925 true sterling silver. To prevent oxidation (a naturally occurring chemical process that may happen when silver is exposed to high moisture or humid conditions without ventilation) we recommend storing your piece correctly. Avoid keeping it enclosed for extended periods and instead air it out in a dry environment whenever possible. Oxidation only affects the surface and can be managed with proper care.
Our 14K & 9K solid gold jewellery is specifically designed for everyday wear and will not fade. These pieces are resistant to water, moisture, and sweat. Nonetheless, as with any jewellery, regardless of the material, we advise avoiding contact with perfumes, hand sanitisers, fake tan, moisturisers, direct sunlight, and harsh chemicals to ensure their longevity.
Each piece of Esq jewellery is of a fine and delicate nature, and customers are advised to take extra care to ensure the longevity of their piece:
- Keep jewellery dry at all times and avoid contact with saltwater, chlorine, perfumes, moisture, sweat and body products as these elements can tarnish and damage your jewellery.
- Remember to remove your jewellery when showering.
- Avoid using fake tan while wearing your jewellery.
- Take rings off when sanitising your hands.
- Protect your jewellery from extreme heat and exposure to harsh elements.
- For plated jewellery, be particularly cautious as wear and tear may cause the plating to rub off over time.
We want you to love and wear your piece! To maintain the integrity of each item, please handle them with care. Even the highest-quality materials can be susceptible to snapping or breaking if handled aggressively. Extreme bending, applying force, or rough handling is not considered a manufacturing fault, and Esq Jewellery will not be liable for replacing items mishandled in such a manner.
