Jewellery Care 101

Jewellery Care 101

We want every Hunt Of Hounds piece to look great and last for a lifetime. Check the care card that came with your piece for instructions, and follow the tips below to help you take the very best care of your jewelry.


Sterling silver will tarnish over time when left exposed to the air. Wearing silver is actually the best way to care for it, as the natural oils in your skin will polish it for you!

Vermeil is not a 'forever' finish. The life of a vermeil (gold over sterling silver) piece is dependent on your body chemistry and the activities you engage in while wearing it. To keep vermeil jewelry looking great, avoid repeated rubbing and contact with harsh solutions like pool water and detergents.

Daily Wear & Care

We recommend taking off all vermeil pieces when working out, washing your hands, showering, swimming, and cleaning. Exposure to cleansers, detergents, disinfectants, perfumes, and lotions can accelerate the wear of vermeil.

Take caution when using hand sanitizer. When possible, remove your jewelry prior to application - especially gold-plated pieces. Sterling silver and solid gold are more resilient to exposure to alcohol and can be worn for infrequent application of hand sanitizer.

Our sterling silver and solid gold pieces can be worn when washing your hands with mild soap. Take care not to scratch the surface or damage gemstones as you move your hands.


Store your jewelry in a dedicated jewelry box or container that can protect your pieces from oxygen and humidity. Try to separate each piece from the next by using a ring tray or a pouch. Sterling silver pieces will tarnish when not worn, so be sure to rotate your styles.


Gently rub your piece with a dry, non-abrasive cloth, such as a jewelry polishing cloth. Do not use chemical cleaners or other solutions as they may damage the finish and dull gemstones. Please contact us if you have any questions about cleaning or polishing your Hunt Of Hounds pieces.

We do our very best to create timeless pieces with high-quality materials. By following these tips, your jewelry will keep looking beautiful for years to come.
