Does your jewellery have the holiday blues?

If you've recently returned from a summer holiday and your jewellery is looking a bit lacklustre from the application of suntan cream, or swimming in a chlorine pool or salt water, then revive it with a swift clean and polish with a Town Talk Polish product - you'll be surprised at the difference.

Whatever your jewellery type - silver, diamond, platinum or costume jewellery - Town Talk has a cleaning cloth, dip or tissue to add sparkle and radiance to your most treasured possessions. For the cleaning of gold jewellery and gold watches - including removal of small scratches - we recommend the Town Talk Gold Polishing Cloth; watch the movie clip below for more. In fact you can now watch a range of Town Talk Polish jewellery care films online on our YouTube channel

Town Talk Polish products are the finest in the world and made exclusively in Great Britain, so if you have any questions about the best way to clean jewellery you can call my team on 01204 529981 or email me on info@towntalkpolish.co.uk direct.

Wishing you a sparkly week!
Mr. Town Talk, The Polished Gentleman

Caring for Pearls

Pearls are relatively soft gems and are easily scratched by other jewellery or metals. Keep your pearls looking their best for decades with Mr Town Talk's Top Tips:
  1. Protect from exposure to any chemicals, cosmetics or hair spray as these will pit the pearls’ surface and weaken the thread
  2. Put pearls on after all cosmetics have been applied
  3. Have the necklace strung with knots
  4. Do not dip into any jewellery cleaner. Wipe the pearls with a soft cloth after use and before storing
  5. Never use an ultra-sonic cleaner
  6. Restring when thread is dirty or stretching
  7. Ideally, store pearls in a Town Talk Pearl Pochette and clean using a Town Talk Pearl Care Kit

Town Talk Polish celebrates up and coming jewellery designers

As an ambassador for the care and protection of treasured possessions, I've teamed up with International Jewellery London 2016 to help celebrate the People’s Choice Winner for most promising, emerging KickStart jewellery designer at this year’s trade show.

Who will lift the prize?


International Jewellery London (IJL) is the UK’s leading event for the international jewellery trade and a show that my team and I exhibit at every year.


KickStart


To showcase talent and future jewellery trends, ten emerging designers have been selected by the National Association of Jewellers and IJL as part of their KickStart 2016 Initiative. Now one of those ten will be selected as the People's Choice - voted for by the trade. The  prize is prime space at IJL 2016 in the prestigious Design Gallery. What's more Town Talk is designing a consignment of bespoke cleaning cloths for the winner, complete with their own logo and in their choice of colour to seamlessly match their brand.


Vote now


Voting takes place from now until 30 June 2016 for the KickStart People’s Choice Winner, to be announced at the show. The designers have been selected from across the globe and demonstrate a wide range of skills, style and techniques, making this a truly international lineup.

As a worldwide exporter I already supply leading jewellers and retailers with Town Talk Polish jewellery care products in over 40 countries, often niftily disguised under private label. My team tailors jewellery cloths for different materials, so whether the winner specialises in gold, silver, gems, pearls or any other precious metal or stone, we can manufacture a cloth to effectively clean, polish and protect it. We will be presenting the winner with his or her cloths at IJL 2016, which will be very exciting.

Adding value to jewellery sales


What's the appeal? Well, many of my own brand jewellery customers use cloths to add value to luxury item sales at a relatively low cost or to grow revenue by selling them as complementary care products.

Spring clean your way to happiness!

Mr Town Talk tells you how...


"I might be old but I'm as sprightly as ever! And I look forward to a good old spring clean to lift my winter spirits. It gives me a great sense of satisfaction; it's as good for the mind as it is for the body.

If your home is in need of a top-to-toe spring clean but you're dreading getting started or simply don't know where to begin, here are my essential top tips and best sellers:

Homemade remedies V specialist products

"There are plenty of homemade remedies around for giving your home a spritz, usually involving copius amounts of lemon juice, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide or bicarbonate of soda! But do take care,  sometimes an off the shelf product is so much safer if you're unsure about what you're mixing. Plus a ready made product not only saves you space in the cleaning cupboard, it also brings a wonderful lasting scent to your home that home remedies just don't deliver.

"There are off the shelf products and then there is my Town Talk Original Household Cleaning Range. Mine doesn't contain nasty hazardous chemicals, phosphates or bleaches, but does provide a lot more 'omph' in the cleaning power department than most preparations. In fact, these are premium high performace products that have been carefully researched by my techinical manager. They're dreamy to look at and leave luscious lingering fragrances that make your home smell as fresh as an English country garden. This is a range I'm sure you'll be happy to leave out when the neighbours come to visit.

Remember outside as well as in
"If you have garden furniture now is the time to start thinking about wiping it down ready for warmer days. A swift squirt with my washing up liquid in some warm water will remove build up of grime or algae from rattan, plastic or metal furniture in a jiffy. The same solution works wonders on drain guards, drainpipes and gas/electricty meter covers that have a layer of accumulated winter dirt. Remember it's first impressions that last!"

Glass and windows

"Why spend time preparing your own concoctions when this product makes life a breeze? My Classic Tea Glass and Mirror Cleaner is a spray that works exceptionally well on shower screens to remove soap build-up and glass topped tables for fingerprint-free shine as well as windows and French doors if, for example, you have a pet that likes to add nose prints to the glass. The scent is divine; an enduring, delicate fragrance of tea leaves that wafts around wherever you choose to spray. Use neat and buff glass with a soft microfibre cloth and you'll be converted forever!"

Hard floors

"Most manufacturers try and push a multitude of different products for cleaning different types of floor covering, but in my vast experience I don't feel it's necessary. My Bitter Orange Floor Cleaner is fit for marble, slate, stone, polished concrete, wood, ceramic, teraccotta or even vinyl flooring for a non-slip finish. Just add a drop to a bucket of warm water and you'll banish dirt to vanishing point, leaving rooms and hallways alive with a zesty bitter orange fragrance.  Try it on outdoor decking too and see what a difference it can make."


Wooden furniture, work surfaces and chopping boards

"If your kitchen has a wooden worktop, or to revitalise a heavy duty wooden chopping board, then my Renowned Wooden Work Surface Wax is for you, and is one of my best sellers. Its unique blend of non-toxic ingredients makes it ideal for cleaning wooden chopping boards, butchers blocks, bowls and utensils - especially where the ‘end grain’ is exposed. It also brings a deep, long lasting shine to all fine quality wooden furniture including outdoor dining sets to get them ready for summer. In fact, wood simply loves it! As does the Daily Express when the paper recommended it in a spring cleaning feature."

"Fantastic product which I use all around the house Every one loves the hit of orange as they enter the house. Fragrance lasts well. Makes a great wood kitchen work top look heavenly." January 2016

All my products are available to buy direct online on my website www.towntalkpolish.com 

I hope you have hours of happy spring cleaning!
Mr Town Talk, The Polished Gentleman
