Tips on Caring for your Vinny & Charles Jewellery

Our pieces are all made with high quality materials and expert craftsmanship. They are made to last. To ensure the longevity of your piece, here are a few things you can do to care for and protect your jewellery, to maintain that quality and ensure your piece sparkles for generations to come.


We recommend removing your jewellery before showering, bathing and swimming. And, avoid getting the jewellery in contact with chlorine bleach, perfumes, lotions or harsh chemicals.

We recommend removing your jewellery before doing any rough or manual work, like gardening or cleaning, and avoid doing any activities that might scratch or damage the piece. 


You can periodically clean your jewellery at home using warm water, mild dish soap (no detergents) and a soft brush.

Just be sure to rinse your jewellery in a glass as you could risk losing loose stones - or the entire piece - if you rinse directly in the sink. We also recommend that you service your gemstone and diamond jewellery with a jeweller every 6 to 10 months to avoid stones falling out.

All of our white gold pieces are rhodium plated as per industry standard practice. This gives the metal a "whiter" and more 'silvery' lustre as white gold is comparatively more yellow in appearance in its natural state. If you would prefer to have the white gold piece without rhodium plating, please get in touch with us. We recommend having your white gold jewellery re-plated once a year.

Cleaning & Storage

To clean your jewelry, please use the special jewellery polish cloth we provide when you purchase your piece. When your jewellery isn't being worn, each piece should be stored separately, away from sunlight and direct heat.

When you’re not wearing your jewellery, we recommend storing it in your Vinny & Charles jewellery box. And, before putting it away, wipe your jewelry with a soft cloth to remove any oils. 


We strongly recommend that you obtain appropriate and adequate insurance for your jewellery with a local reputable supplier.

White Gold Jewellery

Rhodium plating of white gold jewellery is a jewellery industry standard practice. The Rhodium plating will provide a white 'silvery' appearance. White gold in it's natural colour has a more yellow luster to it.

When it comes to gold alloys/mixes - every manufacturer has their own recipe that they will use depending on what characteristics within the metal they are looking for. The alloys can change the natural colour of the metal slightly so jewellery from two different manufacturers can look different in their natural white gold state.
(So for example 14k gold is 58.3% pure gold, 18k gold is 75% pure gold etc with the rest being made up of alloys)

We recommend yearly maintenance and replating of your white gold jewellery.
