Jewellery Care



Exesia Jewellery is delicate by nature and requires care to keep its beauty and lustre. 

Sterling Silver may tarnish or oxidise over time as a natural reaction to common chemicals in the environment, from body heat & the acidity of our skin. 

To help minimise this we recommend putting your jewellery on after applying perfumes, hairsprays & moisturisers well as removing all jewellery prior to using household cleaning products. ​

Avoid wearing your jewellery in chlorinated or salt water pools as the chemicals can accelerate oxidisation causing even the highest quality Sterling Silver to tarnish. 

To keep your jewellery sparkling like new we recommend:-

  1. Gently wash in warm sudsy water, rinse & air dry.
  2. Very gently polish with a soft jewellery cleaning cloth.
  3. Do not over polish plated items to avoid rubbing off the plating or scratching the surface. 
  4. Store each item in separate plastic ziplock bags when not wearing to minimise oxidation & possible damage.
  5. Remove jewellery before showering/ bed to avoid accidental breakage to a beloved piece as silver is naturally a soft metal. ​If your jewellery does tarnish we recommend the following natural cleaning method which is safe for most jewellery items.

  1. Boil a kettle of water
  2. Line a small bowl with aluminium foil.
  3. Add 1 tablespoon of Bicarb Soda  & 1/2 a teaspoon of salt.  
  4. Pour in approximately 1- 2cups of the boiled water (it will froth up).
  5. Add your tarnished jewellery items. Wait 20 seconds to 1min and gently swish around using a plastic fork. (Be careful not to overcrowd the bowl or knot up any chains).
  6. Remove jewellery using the plastic fork & rinse thoroughly under running water (careful not to drop anything down the sink!).
  7. Lay on paper towels to dry.
  8. Once dry, very lightly polish with a soft jewellery cloth. ​
Please note... This method should not be used for cleaning Yellow & Rose Gold plated items as the process will cause the colour to fade. It is also not suitable for cleaning costume jewellery containing dyed or glued-in stones that may become discoloured or dislodged during the process.
