Gold Plated Sterling Silver

To prolong the life of your gold plated pieces, avoid contact with chemicals such as perfumes, cosmetics, lotions, detergents and salt water. Due to the nature of these metals, over time tarnishing will occur. Factors such as the acidity of your skin, and how well you look after your jewellery will affect the rate of tarnishing.

We recommend the use of a soft cleaning cloth, not a polishing cloth as this will wear down/rub off the gold plating.

Gold plated jewellery should be removed prior to swimming, exercising and showering. Store your jewellery in their boxes, with each piece separated to prevent them from rubbing together and causing scratches.

Keep your gold plated jewellery out of direct sunlight as prolonged exposure will cause tarnishing.

 

Rhodium Plated Sterling Silver

All of Miro Miro's silver pieces are rhodium plated, which gives them that lustrous shine. The rhodium enhances the durability of the silver underneath as it protects it from scratches and tarnishing.

However, as it is only plating the rhodium will wear away over time. Similar to gold plating, to prolong its life we recommend avoiding contacting with chemicals such as perfumes, cosmetics, lotions, detergents and salt water.

We recommend the use of a soft cleaning cloth, not a polishing cloth as this will wear down/rub off the rhodium plating.

Rhodium plated jewellery should be removed prior to swimming, exercising and showering. Store your jewellery in their boxes, with each piece separated to prevent them from rubbing together and causing scratches.

Keep your gold plated jewellery out of direct sunlight as prolonged exposure will cause tarnishing.

 

Onyx Stones

Onyx stones are relatively soft and porous. We recommend using a soft cloth to clean around the stones, do not rub them. As they are porous, any contact with chemicals or liquids will damage them. They will absorb any liquid and damage will occur. Keep your stones out of direct sunlight as this will cause discolouration.

 

Clear Quartz

Clear quartz stones are relatively hard. We recommend using a soft cloth to clean the stones. As they are hard, avoid contact with other jewellery as they may cause abrasion. Keep your stones out of direct sunlight as this will cause discolouration.
