How do I take care of my jewelry?
There are many factors which have an influence on the condition of jewelry. Therefore, you should make sure that your jewelry is properly worn, cleaned and stored.
Always protect your jewelry as much as possible from knocks and scratches. For this reason, we do not recommend to wear jewelry when you are sleeping or participating in sporting activities.
Always protect your jewelry as much as possible from chemicals, as found in soaps, cleaning products and beauty products such as hair spray, perfume, deodorant, body lotion, etc. We recommend to put on your jewelry after you are fully dressed and have finished your hair and make-up.
Also, watch out for swimming pools and sea water. It can speed up the oxidizing process of silver jewelry (read the article “oxidation silver jewelry”). This applies only to the silver jewels, not to the golden ones. But still with your golden jewelry we strongly advise you not wearing them when you go swimming, you might lose them. Therefore, always remove your jewelry before entering water.
HOW DO I STORE MY JEWELRY?
We advise you to store your jewelry separately so that they do not get tangled up or scratch against each other. In order to avoid oxidation with your silver jewelry, please read the article “oxidation silver jewelry”.
HOW DO I CLEAN MY JEWELRY?
For golden items, you can use warm soapy water and a soft toothbrush to remove any dirt.
To brighten up your silver pieces we recommend using a silver-clean product witch you can buy in the webshop under the category “accessories”. Always ensure you clean your item after silver dipping with warm water and blow dry with a hair dryer.
However, cleaning will not bring any originality back of the matt or shiny differences. We recommend that you have your jewel re-treated when the originality has disappeared between matte and shiny.
