Care & Wear
please take care of your beautiful handcrafted pieces, treat them with care and they will last for years. we believe in wearing your jewels and with the love from the wear and tear they can get dirty.
wearing your jewels
our pieces are delicate and not made to be worn during sports and activities such as cleaning and gardening. we don’t recommend wearing jewelry in water, especially chlorinated pools and hot tubs. be sure to remove your pieces before sleeping and when applying cosmetics, perfumes, sprays, creams and oils.
cleaning your jewels
cleaning is simple and easy; see below to see which is the best method for your piece.
- 10k and 14k gold: in a bowl combine a few drops of mild dishwashing soap with warm water. let your pieces soak in this mixture for about 15 minutes. if you want to get into fine areas of your piece, gently take a soft bristle toothbrush to it. rinse off with warm water and pat dry. if you want to give your piece an extra shine it can be done with a polishing cloth.
- sterling silver: create a paste by mixing baking soda and warm water. run this mixture back and forth through your piece. rinse off with warm water and pat dry. if you want to give your piece an extra shine it can be done with a polishing cloth.
- gold vermeil: take a soft and dry cotton or microfibre cloth and gently clean your piece. do not clean with water or chemical cleaners, these will strip away the gold finish.
storing your jewels
we recommend storing each of your jewels separate to avoid scratches. place your pieces in a pouch or an air tight plastic bag (especially sterling silver and gold vermeil to prevent oxidization and tarnishing). to avoid tangling your necklaces and bracelets, close the plastic bag over the end of the chain and let the end dangle out slightly. be sure to keep your jewelry away from extreme heat or moisture.
