All Littlesmith jewellery is made of a high grade (jewellery) stainless steel metal or a brass base metal. Our jewellery is then coated in 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 it's beautiful luster, 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.
