4. Preserving Your Jewellery: Best Practices

To help reduce tarnishing and scratching, we recommend following these simple yet effective guidelines for storing your Alvin Gems Jewellery:

When not wearing your Jewellery, it is advisable to store them in their original pouch and box. This protective casing not only shields them from dust and moisture but also helps prevent unnecessary exposure to light, which can contribute to tarnishing.

4.2 Choosing the Right Environment

Selecting an appropriate storage location is crucial. Aim for a dark, cool, and dry place to keep your Jewellery. Avoid storing them in direct sunlight or areas with excessive humidity, as these conditions can accelerate tarnishing.

5.1 Refund

If the product is deemed faulty and within the 30-day guarantee period, we can offer you a refund. This ensures that you are not left dissatisfied with your purchase and allows you to explore alternative options.
