All Littlesmith jewellery is made of a high jewellery grade stainless steel metal or a brass base metal. Our jewellery is then coated with either gold, silver, or rose gold, using an advanced method of plating called " Ion Plating ". To care and keep your jewellery looking new, use a soft cloth made for jewellery cleaning. Gently polish by hand. Avoid using dip cleaners. To retain its beautiful lustre, keep your jewellery in the Littlesmith case or a moisture-free environment when not wearing. It is advisable not to wear your jewellery in pools or hot tubs. Please avoid your jewellery coming into contact with acne medications, self-tanners and perfume.
