For many of us everyday life has a habit of taking over, often overshadowing the meaningful moments that make our life’s unique. Charlotte Lowe’s inspiring jewellery creations encourage you to remember the people, places and moments you hold dear. Each item a little reminder that you can keep close to your heart forever to evoke memories of precious moments with a special person or place.
Charlotte is inspired by capturing moments shared by family and friends on their journeys together. Taking images from some of the places that are closest to her own heart and using them to create images in which you might see yourself, your child or your significant other.
Each item is handmade in the heart of the UK from Charlotte’s workshop in Birmingham’s famous Jewellery Quarter. The designs are intricately etched into sterling silver with many details oxidised or highlighted 22ct gold inlay.
If you’re looking to add a personal touch to your item you will be pleased to know Charlotte Lowe offers complementary gift wrapping and hand engraving on the majority of her range. Add an initial, word or message to the back of the piece where available. In addition, if you have a photograph that is particularly special to you. Charlotte can create a bespoke item for you containing an image of your silhouettes or person. Bespoke creations and limited additions are also available in rose gold plate, rose gold, 9ct gold and 18ct gold.

Caring for oxidised jewellery
Over time silver naturally oxidises, becoming darker in colour until it eventually turns black. Silver can also be treated to speed up this process in order to turn parts of the item black. You will find oxidisation in the detail and to create the night sky finishes on Charlotte Lowe Jewellery's pieces. This treatment is not permanent and may start to burnish slightly on raised areas over time as the silver polishes against objects it comes into contact with such as our clothes. This is often seen as a positive feature, as the surface individually evolves through use of the wearer. Parts of the piece that aren't raised should retain their black colour, however, please avoid placing these in jewellery dips or wearing them in spas as the chemicals will strip the oxidation away from the piece.
To prolong the black finish it is advised that you store your oxidised jewellery separately from your other jewellery to avoid it rubbing against any sharp surfaces. Avoid contact with harsh chemical such as perfumes and cleaning products. Charlotte Lowe is happy to re-oxidise any item purchased free of charge, however, postal charges will need to be covered by the customer.
Cleaning your jewellery
Oxidised items rarely need cleaning and any dirt that does occur inside recesses or groves can be cleaned with a dry soft brush or with soapy water. Do not use any hard brushes or abrasives which may scratch away at the surface.
Do not immerse oxidised items in chemicals such as jewellery cleaning solutions as this will remove the oxidisation.
Silver surfaces can be cleaned in soapy water or with a soft cleaning cloth, however, please avoid rubbing away at the gold plated surfaces with these cloths as they are impregnated with silver, which may begin to rub away the plating.
