What's the best way to care for my jewellery?

Most of our pieces are at least 50 years old. Along with their age will come signs of love and wear. They have lived and can be fragile. They are not pristine and that is what makes them special. Although most of our pieces are for showing off every day, it is recommended to remove before exercising, showering and cleaning with chemicals. Most items can be delicately cleaned with warm water and mild soap. If you have any questions about your specific piece please do feel free to contact and we would be happy to help! ​ If your piece has gemstones, we always suggest having your pieces looked at by a jeweller over time to ensure that the prints or settings are still secure. Pieces do wear with age.


Layaway plans are a wonderful way of purchasing a dream piece and breaking the payments down over a set amount of time so you don't have to pay the full price up front. A typical Layaway plan with Goldhawk Jewellery means a 25% non-refundable deposit is paid to secure the item (which means it will be taken off as available) and then the remaining balance of the item (+shipping) can be paid off within 3 months. Once the full amount has been paid, you get your piece! Layaway plans can be set up through PayPal/Wise/Website link or through ClearPay/Klarna (UK). We are happy to be flexible with layaway plans so please do contact to discuss! ​ Please note that the 25% deposit is non-refundable and layaway items are not returnable.
