We want you to get the very best from your Little Nell purchase so we've put together some tips for looking after your purchase.

Whether you've purchased brass earrings, or a set of hair grips it's always best to adhere to the following rules:

  • Keep your purchase away from liquids, particularly hairspray, sun cream or perfume
  • When you're not wearing your jewellery, make sure necklaces and bracelets are fastened to avoid tangles
  • Keep them in a cotton pouch or gift box when they weren't being worn
  • Remove your jewellery when showering, sleeping or exercising

It's important to keep your jewellery clean too, many of our pieces are created on a hypoallergenic stainless steel base, which we use because it won't tarnish like other gold or silver plated metals. 

(If you're not sure what your jewellery is made from, check the composition of your item on their product page - if it's not clear, please let us know and we'll update this immediately.)


Raw brass pieces will develop a patina over time which gives them a unique vintage charm and quality. If you'd prefer to keep them in their original state, they should be kept in an airtight container (we use small ziplock bags) and can be polished with a little brass cleaner when necessary.
