Memories Charmed Bridal Bouquet charms have an antiqued finish and therefore are designed to have an aged antique appearance from new. Over time exposure to natural gases in the atmosphere, body oils and general wear and tear will add to this patina. I recommend you occasionally use a silver cloth to remove dirt and body oils from your charm. I do not recommend the use of silver dips or other liquid cleaners as they may contain harsh chemicals that could be harmful to your jewellery. Excessive polishing and wear of silver-plated items will eventually thin or wear off the plating.
When wearing/using this item please treat it with care. Avoid bringing it into contact with hard surfaces or sharp objects all of which may result in damage and scratches, the photo coating is waterproof and hard wearing but will scratch if bought into contact with an abrasive surface. Avoid contact with harsh household chemicals, as these chemicals cause rapid discolouration that may damage your jewellery. Please – avoid getting your item wet.
Decide which photos you would like to be charmed, the images can be of anything you choose but there are a number of points you need to take into consideration:
- You will need electronic photographs – you can take good quality electronic images of your original prints but please avoid reflections on their surface.
- The charm are various shapes so cropping of the image will/may take place, where there is more than one person in the picture select a picture where their heads are closer together.
- The photos are reduced down so not all detail will be visible, because of this I tend to crop in closer so the main content of the photo is clear – if you prefer this doesn’t happen you need to let me know. Please do not crop your images before sending them.
- If the back ground of the photograph detracts from the image I will remove it to make it clearer and easier to view. If you prefer this doesn’t happen please inform me.
- The image I produce will be black and white unless you request otherwise.
- You must own the copyright to the images you send, Memories Charmed will not be held responsible for any copyright infringements.
