Our jewelry is meant to be worn everyday. Most jewelry we sell doesn't require too much care (unless otherwise stated), but we do have a few tips for you for when you clean your pieces, and things you should avoid to prolong the life of your pieces!
Cleaning Your Jewelry
- Use mild soap and lukewarm water and soak your piece in the solution for 5 minutes.
- Gently scrub your piece with a soft bristled toothbrush or with your fingers. Make sure to really focus on the areas with the most build-up.
- Gentry pat your piece dry with a soft cloth.
- Rinse and repeat if needed.
- If your piece is losing its shine, use a polishing cloth to help restore its original luster. Our favorite is the Sunshine Polishing Cloth - it seriously works wonders!
Day-to-day Preventative Care
- Don't apply harsh chemicals directly on the pieces (e.g. hand sanitizer, lotion, perfume, sunscreen). If you are applying these on your body, put your jewelry on after everything is applied.
- Avoid pools and hot tubs, as the chlorine will damage the gold.
- Avoid swimming in the ocean, as the salt water can harm the gold.
- When you are not wearing your jewelry, it's very important to store it in a sealed zip lock bag or jewelry case.
- Put your jewelry on last when getting ready! Perfumes, lotions, and some cosmetics can accelerate tarnishing. Let these items settle into your skin before putting on your jewelry.
