How do I care for my Karen Millen jewellery & small accessories?

JEWELLERY

Karen Millen fashion jewellery is made to the highest specification and is plated to achieve a luxurious finish with rhodium plating or white bronze.

Swarovski crystal is used in some styles. Made in Austria, the Swarovski name is world renowned – their crystal being noted for its purity, brilliance and sparkle.

 

All Karen Millen jewellery is nickel free.

Pierced earrings cannot be tried on prior to purchase. Regretfully earrings cannot be accepted for refund unless faulty.

Jewellery should be carefully stored in the protective pouch supplied. Care should be taken to protect it from knocks, chemicals, extreme temperatures and sunlight. Costume jewellery is fragile but when treated with respect will look fabulous for many years.

SUNGLASSES

Sunglasses can be fragile and lenses can scratch easily. The following guidelines will help you to look after your sunglasses and keep them looking good for longer.

Clean your sunglasses with a soft cloth, preferably one that has been specifically developed for cleaning lenses.

Store your sunglasses in the case provided. Avoid putting your sunglasses face down on any surface as this may scratch the lenses.

On a hot day avoid leaving your sunglasses on your car's dashboard as the heat can damage the lenses and distort the frames.

Avoid wearing your sunglasses on the top of your head as this may also distort the frames.

All our sunglasses are covered by a guarantee against faulty manufacture. In the unlikely event of this happening they should be returned to the place of purchase.

WATCHES

Batteries

The battery should be replaced every 18 months and should only be carried out by an approved stockist or specialist repairer.

Handling

Your watch will not withstand extreme shocks or vibration. It is sensible to remove your watch before commencing rough work or situations where the watch could be damaged.

Bracelet Watches

Take care to avoid bending the bracelet beyond the normal curvature of the wrist. It is recommended the watch be kept in the presentation box when not in use. Avoid placing the watch under heavy objects or loose in a handbag.

Water resistance

If your watch is not marked with either the words ' Water resistant' or a degree of water resistance e.g. 3ATM, then it is not water resistant. Care should be taken to avoid getting the watch wet as damage to the movement may result. This usually applies to the watches designed for dress or cocktail type wear.

3ATM

The watch is designed to withstand accidental splashing or rain but not suitable for swimming.

5ATM

The watch is designed to withstand leisure type swimming i.e. swimming baths, yachting and taking a shower. It is not designed to withstand sports scuba diving etc.

10ATM

The watch is designed to withstand swimming, yachting, taking a shower, shallow diving e.g. swimming baths and bathing but not scuba diving General notes

Do not operate buttons or the crown while the watch is in contact with water.

Remember diving into a swimming pool can very briefly and significantly increase pressure on your watch. It may be that the action of diving into the pool increases the pressure to your watch to beyond the limits it has been designed to withstand.

Wide variance of temperature can affect, temporarily, the time keeping accuracy of your watch. Pressure in ATM's is a test pressure and should not be considered as actual diving depth as movement in the water tends to increase the pressure bearing at a given depth.
