Every piece of jewellery here at Daisy Knights LTD is lovingly handmade in the UK from sterling silver or solid 9k gold.
Caring for your jewellery ensures that it will look great every time you wear it and last and wear forever.
How to look after your silver jewellery:
Silver naturally tarnishes with exposure to air and the environment. Additionally lotions, perfumes, bleach and chlorine all have adverse effects on the quality and look of any silver.
In order to ensure that tarnishing doesn’t spoil your silver jewellery, it is important to follow a few simple steps;
Apply any scents and lotions before you put it on.
Avoid wearing jewellery when doing sports or washing up.
We advise that you keep your jewellery in the box it came in or in a jewellery pouch.
To keep your jewellery clean we recommend that you gently rub the item with a lint free cloth. Be very careful when cleaning chains and pieces with gems in.
How to look after your gold jewellery:
Daisy Knights gold items are 9k gold. Follow the same instructions as silver for care. Email us with an questions.
Take your jewellery off at night and remove it for sports and water activities.
We will replate your gold vermeil jewellery (this is only a few sale items, we no longer do gold vermeil jewelelry) for a small fee, but if you follow the care instructions the plating should last a long time!

Our watches come with a one year warranty. You must have the original warranty slip for it to be valid.

To get the best out of your vegan Daisy Knights candle please follow the below.
When lighting for the first time burn until wax melts across entire surface to the sides of vessel (this prevents tunneling, and creates an even burn for the duration of the candle’s ‘life’) This may take up to 2-4 hours.
Trim wick to 5 mm before each burn to promote an even burn, steady flame and limit sooting/mushrooming of wick.
If soot forms on the inside of vessel, extinguish candle, wait for it to cool, then wipe with a clean damp cloth. Trim wick and relight.
Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.
Extinguish candle with a snuffer, or dip wick into melted wax and then straighten wick to prevent smoking and also prevent hot wax from splattering. Do not blow out.
Draughts decrease burn time, cause uneven burning, smoking and diminished scent throw.
Efficient burning means flame is not flickering, teardrop shaped and upright.
Extinguish a candle if it smokes, flickers, or the flame becomes too high. These signs indicate the candle is not burning properly and the flame isn’t controlled. Let the candle cool, trim the wick, then check for drafts before re-lighting.
Maximizing scent throw – open windows/doors will disperse scent. For maximum fragrance keep closed and burn in desired space for 30 mins before entering.
Always store your candles in a cool, dark and dry place. Scented candles also look great stored under a glass cloche, which also protects from dust.
Avoid placing your candles where they will be directly exposed to sunlight or harsh indoor lighting, such as a spotlights
Your can remove dust and fingerprints from a candle by gently rubbing the surface with a piece of nylon or a soft cloth. The cloth can be dry or slightly dampened with water
The box your Daisy Knights candle comes in is recyclable as well as the glass jar.

Environmental Benefits of Organic Cotton
You might be surprised to know that conventional cotton accounts for nearly 25% of the insecticides and 10% of the pesticides used throughout the world, although is it grown on only 3% of the total cultivated area. Cotton crops have been plagued by numerous diseases and pests over the years, including bacterial blight, ascochvta blight, southern blight, lef spot, bollworm, white fly, crown gall, lint degradation, anthracnose, areolate mildew, powdery mildew, black root rot, boll rot, sting nematode, charcoal rot, escobilla, stem canker, leaf spot, lint contamination, terminal stunt, cotton rust, southwestern cotton rust, tropical cotton rust, verticillium wilt, reniform nematode, abutilon mosaic, anthocyanosis, blue disease, small leaf, leaf crumple, leaf curl, leaf mottle, leaf roll, psylosis, and phyllody. It also ranks fourth in the list of most heavily fertilized crops.
The excessive use of chemicals in conventional cotton production has led to a great deal of environmental pollution. Organic cotton is grown using organic means without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and insecticides, therefore helping to improve the quality of the land, prevent water contamination, and conserve biodiversity.
Improved Health for Farmers
Like conventional coffee production, conventional cotton production also leads to poisoning, causing various health problems for cotton farmers. The problem of poisoning due to chemical insecticides and pesticides is so acute that thousands of poor farmers in developing countries end up losing their lives. Organic cotton production, on the other hand, ensures a healthy life for the farmers and their families.
