Since Minnette vs. Corey’s inception in 2011, Adelaide based designer/makers Minnette and Corey Michael have strived to build their brand around one goal. To design and hand make sterling silver jewellery that is simple, high quality and wearable everyday.

They are now very excited to be launching their new limited edition range made entirely of recycled sterling silver. Inspired by East London culture and architecture, each new piece is designed to be a little bit playful while still maintaining Minnette vs. Corey’s signature simple and wearable style.

Additional policies and FAQs
How do I care for my new jewellery?
Sadly over time your jewellery will loose some of it’s zazzle so here’s some instructions that may help you to maintain or bring back it’s awesome.

Oxidised Sterling Silver
Oxidised sterling silver has a blackened appearance because it has been intentionally and rapidly tarnished using a special chemical process
Although it is reasonably hardy and wont flake off, it is temperamental towards scratches and areas of heavy ware.

To help maintain prolong the oxidised surface we recommend:
- When not flaunting it, store it in the box in which it came, a small plastic bag or somewhere it will be safe from getting knocked around.
- Avoid wearing the jewellery in the shower, pool or while cleaning because any strong chemicals can strip the surface of the wonderful black colour.
- Do not try to clean your oxidised jewellery with a polishing cloth or silver dip, this will remove the tarnish which creates the oxidised effect.

Note – we often find that ware to the oxidised surface from day to day ware is not always a negative and can provide a more subdued vintage look.

Sterling silver
Shiny sterling silver looks amazing when it first arrives but over time it will tarnish. To bring our designs back to life we suggest the below do’s and do nots.

Do:
- Use a soft toothbrush and a mild detergent in warm water.
- If your jewellery is heavily tarnished we recommend checking out this YouTube video... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xTPRLB-1-B0

Do Not:
- Use toothpaste because it is abrasive and can leave scratches.
- Use a polishing cloth because most of our designs are not polished silver. Polishing cloths and silver polish actually wears away a thin layer of silver from the surface, which will ruin the finish of the jewellery.

Other things you might like to know:
- wherever possible we use 100% recycled sterling silver. Currently this does not include chains, cufflink hinges or those little butterflies that go on the back of studs.
- we are making changes to use only the safest chemicals available (when we have to use chemicals)
- none of our designs are lasercut, we hand saw-pierce everything
