Product Care Information

Repairs

Accidents do happen and pieces may become damaged or worn overtime. Silver and precious metals have the ability to be repaired and returned to their former condition. 

 

If you have a piece of Silverware that requires specific care,  please contact- hello@scottsmithdesign.co.uk.

 

Cleaning

An effective home remedy for cleaning silver involves placing the silver items in a bowl of appropriate size and
cover them with white distilled vinegar. Add baking soda into the bowl – the approximate proportions are 4
tablespoons of baking soda for every cup of vinegar. Leave the silver in the mixture for 1 hour. Rinse with clean
water and dry well with soft cotton cloth. Alternatively, you can use warm soapy water and a soft toothbrush.

Scott Smith Design offers a cleaning service for pieces with excessive tarnishing or for clients who don’t
feel comfortable cleaning their own silver.

 

To enquire about this service, please contact - hello@scottsmithdesign.co.uk.
 

Plating

Gold plating is a thin layer of gold applied to the surface of another metal. This is usually a
decorative element to the design which wears down over time.

 

This gold plating is able to be replenished when it has faded to the metal below by re-finishing
the metal and applying a new layer of gold to the piece.

Please contact - hello@scottsmithdesign.co.uk - if you have any specific queries
about repairs, cleaning or plating.
