Caring for your MèRIDESIGNS products

MèRIDESIGNS invested a lot of effort and research ensuring the use of high quality materials in all the designs.

  • Avoid direct contact with water (salt or fresh), excessive perspiration, and chemicals such as chlorine, sulphur detergent and lotion. Excessive light, heat or moisture will deteriorate the quality of plating on the metal. Exposing plated jewellery to water will cause the plating to disintegrate or wear off. No showering in your new jewellery.

  • Remove your jewellery before exercising or prior to bedtime. Excessive perspiration and body oils can sometimes surface tarnish the piece.

  • Do not store your jewellery next to heating vents, window sills, or in a car. The less air and light your silver is exposed to when you aren’t wearing it, the less tarnish will occur, ensuring you will have shiny jewellery for years to come.

  • To clean your plated jewellery, wipe your piece lightly with a damp cotton cloth to remove surface dirt or dust. 

  • Prior to storing, make sure your jewellery is dry. As moisture speeds the tarnishing process, it’s important to make sure your jewellery is dry before putting it away.

  • Ideally, store your jewellery in a soft lined box or pouch. Try to keep pieces apart, so that they so don’t rub together or tangle up.

  • All metals except gold will oxidise and change colour over time. Constant wear will give jewellery a patina and even silver will remain shiny if worn every day or at least regularly.

  • MèRIdesigns is not responsible for any damage, discolouration, or change in material properties over time. Our pieces are delicate and we take no responsibility for careless wear or storage.
