Tom Wood Treatment & Jewellery Care
If you love your jewellery, show it. Treat it with care and avoid direct contact with water and chemical products e.g. soap, perfume, abrasive products. Make-up, perfume and hairspray may dull the finish of your jewellery and cause discolor.
Do not wear your jewellery when in the swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna/steam room or while bathing or showering. Protect your jewellery from moisture and keep it away from all sources of heat such as radiators and windows. The stones might as well get effected by damp conditions. Remove your jewellery when doing your household.
Even how much you love your jewellery, you should not sleep with it.
Tom Wood only use natural stones and all stones have their own nature and they come with different hardness. So please be aware that stones might break if they get hit by something hard. So a general rule will be to avoid impact with hard surfaces.
925 sterling silver is a «soft» metal. Chunky jewellery made of silver, like Tom Wood signet rings, will more easily be exposed to collisions with other surfaces. Scratches and small bulks is not considered a defect, but just a sign of normal wear and tear.
Tom Wood use anti-tarnish or Rhodium treatment on all our jewellery. Still, silver might tarnish (oxidize) over time. To avoid this as much as possible, gently wipe your jewellery clean with a soft cloth after each wear to remove dirt and oils (from skin). If your jewellery eventually tarnish, go to a jeweler and buy the correct polish for your jewellery. Read the instructions carefully and clean your jewellery back to «new».
Please store your jewellery at a nice place away from natural daylight and any kind of damp or heat (so the bathroom is not a good idea). Keep it safe in individual bags or boxes to avoid scratching and rubbing.
It might be smart to do an annual service at a goldsmith to some of your jewellery, in particular to check clasps, mounts and soldering when that’s relevant.
Do not bend and pull chains, bangles or rings.
Best of luck with your new Tom Wood piece.
We hope it will last for a long time!
