JEWELRY CARE AND CLEANING TIPS:

THIS IS IMPORTANT: Sterling Silver 925 can get blackened (tarnish) and it's a normal process. Also it's normal that gold plated and black rhodium plated pieces loose their color with time.  Sometimes your skin PH can accelerate the pleating discoloration process. 

Caring for and wearing your jewelry

  • To help protect the durability and high-quality of your jewelry, remove your jewelry when you shower, bathe or engage in heavy perspiration, particularly when swimming in the sea or a chlorinated swimming pool.
  • Avoid spraying perfume or applying creams that can get in direct contact with your jewelry as it will quick cause blackening or discoloration.
  • Keep your jewelry away from extreme temperatures, humidity or sunlight.
  • Avoid wearing your jewelry when using bleach, cleaning products and other chemicals.

How to clean Silver or brass jewelry?

  • First, be sure your jewels are NOT PLATED.
  • A Silver cleaner can be used to clean Sterling Silver pieces but not Gold plated or rhodium plated.
  • Use a micro-fiber cloth. Rub the piece in one direction rather than circular motions.
  • Do not use tissue paper or paper towels to clean metal as they can cause scratching.

How to clean gold plates or rhodium plated jewelry?

  • Use a micro-fiber cloth. Rub the piece in one direction rather than circular motions.
  • Do not use tissue paper or paper towels to clean metal as they can cause scratching.
  • Do not use metal cleaner or any other cleaning substance on plated jewelry.

Jewelry storage is important as well... 

 

  • Between wearings, we recommend to place it in a grip-seal bag as the one we offer. Air humidity is a harmful agent for plated and solid silver jewelry, it causes tarnishing really fast. Always do this, even if you think you are not in a humid place. 

Gemstones care

  • Since many natural gemstones can be quite delicate, hot water, long time exposed to sun and heat, harsh chemicals and cleaners should be avoided at all times.
  • Very porous stones such as Opal, Moonstone, Howlite and Emerald should be cleaned using an untreated, dry, soft cloth only.
  • All of our gemstones are natural and therefore can be vulnerable to chipping after a hard shock. Settings may also become loose over-time.
