Sonnys Jewellers | FAQs
Are your gold jewellery pieces 'solid gold' or 'gold plated'?
Our priority is providing you with the highest quality of jewellery, which is why our jewellery is always made with 100% of the precious metal (gold, silver or platinum) indicated in the title, with no plating.
Does your jewellery come with a Hallmark?
We follow UK Hallmark standards, which require all jewellery to be hallmarked to ensure authenticity. The only exemptions for this rule are items which fall beneath the specified weight thresholds. These are:
- 1 gram for gold
- 7.78 grams for silver
- 0.5 grams for platinum
- 1 gram for palladium
How do I care for my jewellery?
There are several precious metals and stones used in our jewellery, so please ask a member of our team for care tips specific to the item you have bought. However, generally the following rules apply:
To protect jewellery and ensure longevity, store your jewellery in its original box. Avoid storing metals together as this can cause scratching and damage to softer metals and gemstones.
Remove jewellery when cleaning or doing any manual labour as chemicals can damage your precious metals.
It's important to note that sterling silver is likely to tarnish over time; this is a property of the metal.
To restore the original brilliance of silver, we recommend trying to polish the silver which can help to remove the tarnish. If this is not sufficient, we recommeding using a silver bath to remove the tarnish.
To preserve and maintain the shine of gold jewellery, we recommend cleaning your pieces with warm soapy water, making sure to allow your jewellery to dry fully before storing. For a deeper clean, we offer an easy to use gold bath solution which can bring a new shine to your jewellery.
All diamonds are set securely by our expert workshop team. We are committed to your peace of mind and every piece of diamond jewellery we sell is covered by our guarantee.

If you've found your dream ring at Sonny's but it's not the right size, we can often re-size it to fit. Generally speaking, we'll only resize jewellery up or down 2 sizes, to be sure that the metal does not weaken. However, it might be that we can source the same ring in a different size if needed, so please do enquire. When purchasing a ring from us, we'll always honour one free re-sizing to ensure the ring is a perfect fit.
We can also resize jewellery that was not purchased from us, following the guidelines above.
