Frequently Asked Questions
What is costume jewellery?
The term ‘costume jewellery’ means that the item is plated with and not made from a precious metal (i.e. silver, gold or platinum). Our costume jewellery is plated with gold, Silver, Rhodium, or a mix of both, further details of each items plating’s can be found in the product description.
How do I clean and store the jewellery?
We advise following these simple steps to help you care for your Buckley London jewellery purchases. Avoid allowing the jewellery to come into contact with every day chemicals such as soap, washing up liquid, perfume, deodorant, etc, as these chemicals will damage the plating on the jewellery, and may cause rapid deterioration in the finish of the piece. Salt water also has the same effect – so avoid wearing your jewellery whilst bathing and swimming! Jewellery is best stored in its original packaging; this will help to prevent it becoming scratched, or the chains on your pendants becoming tangled. In the case of our sterling silver, this is British standard 925 silver (925 parts silver per 1000). Should the silver start to tarnish, which is a natural process and occurs in all silver items, polishing the item gently with a soft cloth should restore its lustre. Equally, costume jewellery should not need cleaning with anything more abrasive than a soft polishing cloth.
Can I wear the jewellery if I have sensitive skin?
All of our products are “Nickel Safe” and all the earring posts are made from titanium. “Nickel Safe” is a definition we apply to our products because they are tested to the stringent European Nickel Directive standards. The above safeguards should minimise any chance of your becoming allergic to our jewellery, but in the unlikely event that you experience any adverse reaction, please remove the jewellery immediately.
Does the jewellery come with a gift box?
