GENERAL CARE AND KEEPING
- Remove jewelry when bathing, showering, exercising, and sleeping
- Keep jewelry away from all sources of heat.
- Always avoid excess moisture, or direct contact with water and chemical products.
- All jewelry can be cleaned with warm water, mild dish soap (no detergents) and a soft brush. Be sure to rinse your jewelry in a glass of water to remove cleaning solutions since you risk losing loose stones — or even an entire piece of jewelry — if you rinse directly in the sink.
- Most jewelry pieces come in a box or pouch, which is a perfect place to keep them. Jewelry boxes that feature individually padded slots for rings and posts for hanging necklaces and bracelets are also ideal.
- 925 sterling silver naturally oxidises when exposed to air, liquids and substances from the skin.
- Use a reducing agent, such as a silver polish cloth or a silver bath, to maintain the finish.
- 925 sterling silver is a quite soft metal. Chunky jewellery made of silver are easily exposed to collisions with other surfaces which creates dents and small scratches. Over time, these will slide into each other and the surface of the piece will become “softer” and the cuts become less visible. Scratches and small dents are not considered a defect, but just a sign of normal wear and tear.
PLATED JEWELRY/GOLD VERMEIL
- Gently clean with mild dish soap and a soft brush but do not polish. Outer plating can actually be removed with polishing.
- The top layer will naturally wear off over time and can be replated to restore its original colour, thus occasional wear is recommended. Gently clean using a soft cloth without chemicals.
- Gently clean with mild dish soap and a soft brush. Gemstones are mineral stones that can be delicate and broken if not cared for correctly.
- Wipe with a soft cotton cloth. Pearls are very soft and can be subject to scratching. We highly recommend putting on pearls after applying hairspray, perfume, or other cosmetics, as they are especially sensitive to chemical contact.
