HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR FRANCESCA PIECES:
STERLING SILVER: Valued for its versatility and beauty, sterling silver may be worn everyday without fading. All sterling silver will oxidise slightly and tarnish over time. To care for your piece, simply polish it with a silver polishing cloth or dip it in a gentle silver cleaning solution. Silver is a delicate material, so remember to treat your piece with love. Please contact us or visit us in store if you would like to purchase a Francesca silver polishing cloth.
GOLD PLATED: Gold plating is a method of bonding a thin layer of liquid gold onto the surface of another metal; such as sterling silver, by electrochemical plating. Featuring 18k gold on solid sterling silver, Francesca pieces are of the highest quality with plating thickness varying from 2 to 3 microns. To care for your piece, avoid wearing it in water and take care when using perfume, foundation, tanning products and lotion. Tarnishing is subject to change due to the acidity of the wearers skin, and exposure to such products. Tarnishing is not a manufacturing fault and if you would like to a piece which can be worn every day without tarnishing we recommend our Noir Solid Gold range.
GOLD FILLED: With the elegance and beauty of gold, gold filled jewellery wears like solid gold, without the price tag! Featuring a layer of 14k solid gold bonded to sterling silver, our gold filled collection may be worn everyday without fading or tarnishing. To care for your piece, simply give it a light polish with a soft micro-fibre cloth. Gold and silver are delicate materials, so remember to treat your piece with love.
SOLID GOLD: The metal of royals, gold has long been revered for its rarity and timeless beauty. Unlike many other metals, gold will never tarnish or fade, making it perfect for everyday wear. To care for your piece, simply polish it with a gold polishing cloth or dip it in warm water, using a mild detergent. Gold is a delicate material, so remember to treat your new piece with love. Please contact us or visit us in store if you would like to purchase a Francesca solid gold polishing cloth.
SEMI-PRECIOUS STONES: To clean your semi-precious stone, gently wipe them with a soft, damp cloth. Avoid exposure to detergents or chemicals. Hair spray, perfumes, chemicals and soaps can damage and/or discolour the stones.
