Looking after you
Bespoke, Upcycling and Sizing
Having a bespoke piece made to your individual requirements is a thoroughly rewarding experience which results in the most personal jewellery that you will treasure forever.
Our workshop is on hand to help with sourcing, designing and creating unique jewellery just for you and can cater to pretty much any budget. So please do drop us a line to learn more about our complimentary consultation process.
One of the most wonderful things about precious metals and pearl strings is that they’re completely flexible. Pendants can be melted down and transformed into rings or pearl necklaces can be split into bracelets and earrings. This lets you keep wearing your jewellery when fashions change or you want to take more enjoyment from a cherished family heirloom.
If your bracelets, rings or necklaces aren’t quite the right size, whether they’re from Cornwall Gold and Cornwall Pearl or not, we can help adjust them so they fit like gloves. Call our workshop on 01209 203280 for more information.

What do we mean by wear and tear
This is the results of life we can see on jewellery. Many activities can cause wear and tear, such as handwashing while wearing jewellery, or rifling through handbags. Scratches on the metal, stones becoming loose or falling out, the dulling or breaking-off of pearls are some examples.
Being mindful of when you wear your jewellery is a part of looking after it.
Not looking after jewellery would include wearing it during sport, gardening, or DIY. These activities result in damage which we regard as beyond ‘normal wear and tear’.
In addition to these, pearls should not have perfume sprayed on them, sometimes people send back strings to be re-strung and we can smell perfume. This would void the guarantee.
Silver tarnish is a normal process associated with that metal. We use rhodium plating to prevent tarnishing of the jewellery and to maximise the rhodium plating life, we recommend that you do not polish or use jewellery cleaner until the tarnish appears. We further recommend that you do not swim or bathe in your silver jewellery, and avoid using perfumes and body lotions while wearing the piece.
Try hard not to scratch or damage the surface by being mindful of what you do while wearing your jewellery.
What to do if your silver tarnishes
Return to any Cornwall Gold store for a complimentary clean with a silver polish cloth.
