Features Primary Material : 9ct yellow gold One of a Kind : No Metal : 9ct yellow gold Hallmarked : Yes Finish : satin Cleaning InstructionsPerfumes, lotions and chemicals can all affect the look of jewellery over time.Using a soft (old!) toothbrush and warm soapy water can remove build-up of dirt/discolouration.Using hairdryer (on a low setting) afterwards will help to avoid water marks on your jewellery.Avoid contact with harsh chemicals, especially when wearing jewellery with gemstones.FinishesFinishes that are applied to our jewellery can alter over time, simply due to everyday wear. This is more applicable to rings and bangles; satin & frosted finished pieces may become shinier with wear and polished items can become slightly duller with time.Snake chainsSnake chains have an unusual semi-rigid form that can make them susceptible to kinking.Careful storage and handling is required to preserve the chains original shape. We suggest that your necklace is loosely coiled or hanging up to avoid being squashed or misshapen.
