Vintage Jewellery will not be brand new, in “never worn” showroom perfect condition. The jewellery itself may show signs of minor wear and tear, or small repairs may have been carried out over the years. This is part of the beauty and patina of owning a piece of jewellery with a history.
Our precious jewellery pieces have been cleaned and valuated before they are listed for sale. Auld Lang Syne Timeless Jewellery takes pride in our customer service and value all our customers, if you have any issues at any time, please do not hesitate in discussing the matter with us. We do not cover wear and tear of jewellery.
Jewellery, given the proper care and service, can last a lifetime, or more! To ensure the longest life of your amazing piece, we recommend the following care and maintenance steps.
Jewellery is delicate by nature and we encourage customers to take extra care when wearing it daily. An easy tip is taking off your rings when you are doing rough handwork that may damage the stone or the shape of a ring.
Gold is a malleable (soft) substance and a fine setting or a band can be bent and warped. When metal bends it can cause stones in their settings to fall out. We also recommend taking your jewellery off when washing your hands, showering, sleeping, doing housework, exercising and even while dressing. This is to ensure that it doesn’t catch on items of clothing or anything that may lift setting claws and loosen stones. Fine bands & thin claws can wear quicker with time then thicker stronger designed pieces it is your responsibility to look at your lifestyle and practicality of the design of what you buy.
Jewellery is very delicate and needs to be worn accordingly. Annual maintenance of your jewellery is recommended. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee wear and tear, so you need to consider the design of the piece you have chosen and treat it with great care and love to enjoy the full benefit of your exquisite piece now and into the future!
