How To Care For Your Jewellery

If your new Night Time Holiday piece is made from Eco Silver...

Eco Silver (also called Recycled Silver) is the exact same quality as Sterling Silver, it's just a much more environmentally friendly and ethical material - made completely from Recycled Silver rather than newly mined.

Silver naturally tarnishes with age, but will always polish back to its original finish.

How to care for your eco silver pieces:

  • Wearing your piece often.
    Tarnishing happens mostly when the item is left unworn!
    The natural oils in the skin help to keep your silver shining.
  • Removing whilst using chemicals like household cleaners.
  • Removing whilst swimming in chlorinated water.

To bring your silver jewellery back to a high shine, here are a few gentle polishing methods you can do at home:

Light tarnish - Make a paste from baking soda and water.

Apply a small amount to a cloth and rub the piece gently. Rinse and pat dry!

Heavy tarnish - Leave to soak in a bath of 1/2 cup white vinegar and 2 tbsp baking soda for 2-3 hours. Rinse and pat dry!

If Your Night Time Holiday Jewellery is Beaded...

Beaded jewellery from Night Time Holiday is made with Semi Precious Stones and
Sterling Silver findings to ensure your jewellery stays in beautiful condition for a very long time!

How to care for your beaded pieces:

• Remove before exercising, bathing or swimming. Sweat, chemicals and water can have an effect on the semi precious stones and metals.
• Put on your beaded bracelets and necklaces last in your routine. This ensures they don't come in contact with hairsprays, makeup or lotions whilst getting ready.
• Remove whilst cleaning to keep away from harsh chemicals.
• Keep out of direct sunlight.
Don't leave your jewels on a sunny window sill, as sunlight can effect some semi precious stones.
• Handle them with love!

If your new Night Time Holiday piece is made from Brass... 

Naturally, brass will dull and tarnish over time with exposure to oxygen, oils in your skin & your pets coat, and water. The natural patina that brass takes is still beautiful, but can easily be polished back up to a lovely shine if desired.

How to care for your brass pieces:

To bring your brass products back to a high shine, here are 2 gentle polishing methods you can do at home:

Option 1 - Use toothpaste or a paste made from baking soda and water, and a soft old toothbrush/cloth to gently clean the piece. Dry thoroughly, as watermarks on brass can be stubborn.

Option 2 - Make a paste of white vinegar and baking soda and smear it over the desired area. Leave the piece to sit in the paste for 20 minutes, rinse well and dry thoroughly.
