If you feel your jewellery requires a specialist clean. We recommend you return to us for cleaning for a small fee.
Semi Precious Stones and Diamonds
Diamonds are hard enough to scratch other services. Please take care to store fine jewellery with diamonds separately from other pieces.
Semi precious stones can be lightly cleaned with a soft dry cloth. When wearing these items avoid chemicals such as deodorants, hairsprays and perfumes. Try to keep out of direct sunlight.

Oxidised or blackened silver
Macha oxidizes sterling and Fine Silver (99.9% silver) by hand, making each and every piece unique. Oxidising is a coating that wears off through time. To preserve the original appearance, follow the same care as for Fine Jewellery pieces. Some fading is normal though darkened areas should remain in crevices embracing the original antiqued appearance.
