HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR FRANCESCA PIECES:Sterling silver pieces:
Our sterling silver collection is perfect for every day wear. All sterling silver will oxidise slightly and tarnish over time. To clean, lightly wipe with a damp cotton cloth or sterling silver polishing cloth. Please contact us or visit us in store if you would like a Francesca polishing cloth.
Gold plated pieces:
Gold plating is a method of depositing a thin layer of gold onto the surface of another metal such as sterling silver by electrochemical plating. The plating thickness on Francesca pieces is 2 microns thick. Tarnishing is subject to change due to the acidity of the wearers skin, care habits and exposure to salty air, skin creams, hairspray, chlorine and other chemicals. To prolong the life of your gold plated jewellery, avoid contact with water and chemicals (such as detergents, soaps and perfumes). To clean, lightly wipe with polishing cloth. 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.
To clean pearls, 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 your pearls
Solid gold and diamond jewellery
Your solid gold jewellery is great for every day wear! Your solid gold and diamond pieces can be cleaned in a jewellery dip cleaner or in warm water using a mild detergent. You can also use a gold polishing cloth to clean your pieces, these may be available in store subject to availability.
14 carat gold reflects the gold content of the metal used, 14 carat gold contains 58.5% pure gold.
