Jewellery Care

Jewellery, Gifts and Care Instructions

Please, please, please note that jewellery and packaging containing small items, pins (this will be highlighted in your package if there are any), twine, tissue paper - these can be harmful to babies, small children, animals and pets. Please keep them out of harms way - thank you.

As you are probably already aware we use a variety of select suppliers and take time to ensure our jewellery is Nickel free and is of a base metal unless otherwise stated eg, Stainless Steel or Real Silver. 

To care for your jewellery and gifts you should always avoid contact with liquids, hairspray and perfume. Each item you purchase comes together with these care instructions.

All of our descriptions are as accurate as possible including measurements, but please feel free to contact us if require any additional information at

The product images were taken with a digital camera and the colour reproduction may vary depending on the type of monitor you are using. Due to differences of computer monitors, the colours displayed on your screen may vary from the actual colours of the products. Darley Lovell assumes no liability for inaccuracies or misstatements about products.

All sterling silver will tarnish over time, but it will happen much faster when it comes into contact with agents such as perfume, salty air, sulphur, skin creams, hairspray, chlorine and acidic skin ph. The amount of tarnishing (oxidation) that occurs is dependent on the skin and care habits of the wearer. Tarnishing is therefore not a manufacturing fault.

We also recommend that you do not wear your jewellery whilst bathing, whilst in bed or during sporting activities.

Always undo the clasp to remove your bracelet or necklace. 

How should I store my jewellery? 

Jewellery should be stored away from natural sunlight and heat, in a protective (lined) jewellery box or a tarnish-resistant pouch. It can also be stored in a plastic zip lock bag made of Mylar or polyethylene. Never use polyvinyl plastic bags, such as bin liners as they contain sulphur compounds, which will make sterling silver tarnish faster. Do not store your jewellery in the bathroom.

Please note that our gift boxes are not made for long-term storage, we use recyclable material and they are not airtight. 

How should I clean my Darley Lovell jewellery? 
Clean your jewellery with a soft toothbrush in diluted soapy water. Avoid soaking pearls. Polish your jewellery regularly with a good quality silver polishing cloth. Avoid the use of silver dip or paste as they contain harsh chemicals.

Leather care creams are recommended for use on our leather products
