Jewelry Care

Hey there Goddess! Congratulations on your new jewelry!

We believe jewelry is  special and meaningful that is meant to be worn every day.

Our jewelry is hand-made and hand-produced individually and in small batches. To preserve the quality, please keep pieces cool and dry.

We  recommend taking off your jewelry when swimming, cleaning, messy cooking, and moving heavy objects.

 Welcome to Jewelry Care 101!

SILVER

Sterling silver can tarnish quickly when it when exposed to oxygen or sulfur. Happily, the best measure to prevent this is wearing your silver jewelry often. 

When storing your silver jewelry, use an airtight plastic bag (like a Ziploc) and if you can, put in a piece of chalk or a silica gel (the little packets in new shoes) - these will help prevent tarnish while you are not wearing your silver.

If your silver is starting to tarnish the best way to clean it is with a jewelry polishing cloth. 

There are also a ton of easy home remedies for cleaning silver online. Just remember that silver is very soft so use something like a very soft baby toothbrush to avoid scratching.

 

GOLD FILLED

Although we always recommend not getting your jewelry wet, gold filled jewelry can withstand moisture. 

Cleaning your gold filled jewelry with a mild soapy water and a SOFT toothbrush -  is the perfect combination. This is what we use in our studio after we finish polishing our pieces. The detergent can remove residue or fingerprints from the item, and still leave it shiny and bright when it's done. Be sure the toothbrush is soft or it may scratch your piece.

You can also use a traditional jewelry cleansing cloth.

 

BRASS

Brass may darken with wear, depending on body chemistry. If you don't like the dark patina, try to avoid getting your brass jewelry wet. A commercial brass cleaner, like “JAX” will restore your piece to its original shine. You can also use a traditional jewelry cleansing cloth to add more shine and brightness.
