Care of your itemsHandling of items
Untangle and untwist chains or links prior to putting them on.
Be gentle when handling your jewellery as the pieces are delicate and handmade, so you need to look after them carefully.
Don’t over-stretch the stretch bracelets. The elastic is strong but won’t cope if over stretched, so let us know if you need something slightly bigger, we will happily do what we can to extend any bracelet or necklace in line with our terms and conditions
Tiaras and some jewellery pieces are made with flexible components to allow for some movement whilst they are being fitted. This is to ensure your tiara looks perfect for you on the day. However, as I'm sure you will appreciate, wire will only go backwards and forwards so much before it inevitably gives up and snaps. Therefore, please avoid over handling of your tiara before the big day to help maintain it's shape and avoid breakages.
Tarnishing or oxidising turns metal a different colour and makes it lose its shiny finish. All jewellery metal is prone to tarnishing when it comes into contact with the air. It is usually caused by perspiration and also exposure to oxygen in the air. Tarnishing is also accelerated with excessive handling, by people who have different levels of acidity in their skin and also the pieces that are coming into contact with cosmetics products. A tarnished product is not an indicator of quality, and it natural even with the most expensive of pieces!
Tantrums and Tiaras use only tarnish resistant wire in it's tiara and jewellery designs. It should help your tiaras maintain their sparkle long after your big day.
All Tantrums and Tiaras pieces come in a presentation box to help reduce the risk of tarnishing. Items should therefore as much as possible be kept in their original/similar packaging when not being worn. If your jewellery gets dirty, wipe over with clean, dust-free soft cloth.
The most common cause of allergic reaction to jewellery is through contact with the metal Nickel. In fact as many as 10% of people are allergic to it. The European Union decided to control its use in an attempt to reduce the numbers of people who suffer from a reaction. The products used to form jewellery at Tantrums and Tiaras is bought from UK suppliers that have to comply with the European Union directive. Tantrums and Tiaras therefore does not knowingly sell jewellery with harmful levels of Nickel in them.
