HOW DO I CARE FOR MY JEWELRY?
Our jewelry holds up very well if cared for properly (see our tips below). When jewelry does not hold up well, it often has to do with our skin chemistry or the piece of jewelry reacting with another substance or metal in a way that degrades the finish.
Here are a few care tips:
- Avoid exposing your jewelry to water. The minerals/chemicals in tap water, pools, saunas, beaches, etc. will cause jewelry to oxidize quickly
- It is also a good idea to avoid spraying oils, creams or perfume directly on jewelry. This includes all self-tanning products. Wear your jewelry after you have applied lotion or cream or sprayed on your favorite perfume so that chemicals on the spray or perfume does not interact with your jewelry’s metal
- Clean your jewelry with a cotton ball or a very soft cloth to remove any dust and dirt or restore shine. If your jewelry needs more cleaning you may clean it with warm, soapy water. Soak it for a few minutes and then very gently wipe it dry. Stay away from jewelry cleaners and antibacterial soaps which may have certain components that will make your jewelry tarnish more quickly
