We know you want to wear your cherished jewelry for a long time, which is why we work with precious metals such as 18 carat gold and sterling silver. Here are some easy tips to take care of your jewelry:
What is the best way to clean my jewelry?
Silver may require cleaning from time to time. With some simple, basic care, you can help preserve and protect your beloved items for years to come. As silver jewelry interacts with air, light, water and your skin, it might oxidize. Don’t worry if it does: you can easily remove light oxidation stains with a soft cleaning cloth, or silver dip, you can also use a mild detergent to get rid of dirt.
Gold is a precious metal that doesn’t oxidize, but it might get dirty with daily use. You can simply clean it with a soft cleaning cloth, or warm water and a mild detergent.
How can I best protect my gold-plated jewelry?
Clean your gold-plated jewelry with a soft cloth, never use aggressive products that might damage the layer of gold your jewel is covered with. To make sure the layer of gold lasts a long time: do not wear it while taking a shower, washing your hands, swimming, doing the dishes, etc. Avoid contact with cosmetics and cleaning products, as these may damage the layer.
How can I restore my gold-plated jewelry?
Over time, depending on use, care and skin type, the gold layer may fade away. We provide a gold-plating service to restore your beloved items. For extra information or questions about this service feel free to contact us. We are happy to help you.
How do I best store my jewelry?
Once cleaned and polished, silver and gold must be kept dry and properly stored. Keep away from damp rooms, cosmetics and cleaning products. Did you know that our packaging can be used to store your jewelry when you are not wearing it? Easy does it.
