PRECIOUS AND CONSCIOUS MATERIALS
9CT SOLID GOLD
Your solid gold will never fade or tarnish and will hold, if not increase, it’s value with time. It’s my best choice for timeless durability, a smart investment, creating legacy or just because you deserve it!
Just like gold, all of your DAWN & DAISY silver pieces have been made with 100% recycled sterling silver. I recycle all of the silver dust and scraps and either send them back to my refiners to be made into new solid recycled silver, or create new pieces right here in my studio with it. Email me if you would like to use YOUR silver pieces to be recycled into a new DAWN & DAISY heirloom.
To give your recycled sterling silver pieces their original shine, polish them gently with a microfiber or polishing cloth. For resistant tarnish, you can buy some specific tarnish removing products like the Hagerty silver clean, or try this homemade recipe;
In a small bowl, place a square of aluminium foil to cover the bottom. Fill with hot water, 1 tbsp of salt, 1 tbsp of baking soda and 1 squish of dish washing soap. Let your piece soak for 10-15 min, rinse thoroughly, dry, and voila!
I, as an ever evolving small business, am slowly steering away from gold vermeil for clash of value reasons. I want your DAWN & DAISY pieces to last a lifetime and to become future heirlooms. Whoever, gold vermeil being applied as a layer over sterling silver and not being solid gold, it will eventually fade over time. I value transparency, longevity and durability over affordability, hence why I am no longer producing gold vermeil pieces and all future gold pieces will be made of solid 9ct gold.
Gold vermeil care
Gold vermeil can react to chemicals, perfumes, high PH level and hard knocks and scratches. To make your gold vermeil last as long as possible, here are a few guidelines you can follow;
- Store all jewellery out of direct sunlight and in a cool, dry place.
- Clean jewellery with warm water and a soft bristle toothbrush to get into nooks and give it its lustre back.
- To give it a bit more brightness, gently shine it with a microfiber cloth.
