How to look after your Off The Map jewellery
We hand-make all of our jewellery using solid precious metals. We never use silver or gold plated base metals, so we advise you to take good care of your jewellery.
Sterling Silver jewellery
Particles from soaps, sun screen, perfumes and body lotions can cause silver to tarnish. Excessive moisture, such as perspiration and humid environments, can affect your jewellery in the same way so you'll need to clean it regularly when you are in a hot climate.
Give your sterling silver jewellery a good hand polish with our specialist silver jewellery cloth (included with every order). These cloths are made from high-quality cotton impregnated with a silver cleaner and an anti-tarnish agent. The cloth is designed for dry use only and will work well as long as it's not washed.
If you think your sterling silver jewellery needs a professional clean and polish in our workshop, we will always be happy to do this for you – just get in touch.
Jewellery and leather
The natural leather we use with our jewellery is sourced from a reputable supplier. Our leather bracelets and necklaces feature riveted clasps to ensure they are secure, tough and long lasting.
We recommend you avoid wearing your leather jewellery in the shower or while swimming as contact with water, perfumes and soaps can alter the colour and finish of the leather.
Our cord jewellery features sliding knots that are hand-stitched to order for a secure tie with tough fabric.
We still recommend you avoid wearing your cord jewellery in the shower and swimming as contact with water, perfumes or soaps may alter the durability of the cord or weaken the knots.
Excessive moisture such as perspiration can also affect your jewellery so you'll need to clean it regularly when you are in a hot climate.
We will always replace your cord bracelets if they get worn, so you can be sure every part of your jewellery will last for years.
