Jewellery Care

Jewellery information 
Please do not get any Readers Society jewellery wet or damp. Please don’t swim, shower, steam/sauna, sunbath or wash hands with these items on. 
All metals/gold/silver/beads can fade and tarnish with exposure to water and the sun. 
If you have any metal allergies we do encourage you to email us first to talk through what items you may need to avoid.

If an item is 18k gold, gold plated, sterling silver or stainless steel it will be stated on the product description. Even through this product is harder wearing and should not tarnish, we still recommend not getting it wet or leaving it out in the sun. 
As a new business, we would like to improve the quality of product and service, we welcome feedback. We are currently looking into more gold plated/18K gold/waterproof golds and silver options but these do not come cheap. We want to make affordable pricing options so everyone can wear their bookish merch with pride but look to strike a happy balance with our products long term.

Our tips to make your items last long:
Tip #1: Protect your jewellery by storing it in a pouch (like one provided with all jewellery orders) or box to avoid scratches when not wearing. Leaving items out in direct sunlight can cause discolouration.   
Tip #2: Please don’t forget to take off your jewellery before swimming, showering, having a bath or jumping in a sauna/steam room. Protect your items by avoiding direct contact with sweat, body lotion and perfume. 
Tip #3: We have a mixture of materials that need to be cared for differently, you can extend your items shine by cleaning it regularly with a soft, DRY cloth. Overtime and wear some of our items will start to naturally tarnish.
