Keep your items looking beautiful with these care tips.

Please note that each pice of jewelry is unique and has their own cleaning needs. This is a general guideline for jewelry care. If you have questions on the care of your jewelry, please contact us here.

| Care |

Avoiding impact and pressure is important to the maintenance of your jewelry.

Gold, gemstones, and even diamonds can chip, crack, or scratch if they are knocked hard enough against an object that has a stronger composition. Gemstones like opals, pearls, turquoise, etc. are particularly soft stones and are easily susceptible to chips, cracks and fractures. Handle with care.

Remove jewelry when...

 

- Showering/Bathing
Avoid residue build up and extreme temperature changes.

 

- Exercising/Physical Activity
Gardening, painting, rock climbing, etc.
Abrasive metals can interact with your jewelry, causing bending, warping or scratches. This will also reduce risk of injury to hand should your ring become caught or snagged on equipment.

 

- Sleeping:
Avoid discomfort caused by fingers swelling at night while wearing rings. Also, removing fine jewelry will reduce the chance that delicate items (prongs, chains, etc.) will break or bend while sleeping.

 

- Cooking, baking, dishes or cleaning:
Harsh chemicals such as bleach can damage metals and weaken settings, causing loose or lost stones. 

 

- Swimming:
Reduce the chance of your jewelry falling off in a body of water by removing your jewelry before swimming. Rings especially have a high chance of falling off in cold water. Chlorinated water can react chemically with metal, which can change the color or weaken the settings. 

 

| Clean Metals |

Gold Jewelry: Soak in soapy water (we recommend Miss Meyers of 7th Generation) for 10 minutes.  Scrub gently with a soft toothbrush.  Dry with a soft cloth.

Silver Jewelry: Make a thick paste with 1/4 cup baking soda and two tablespoons of water. Brush onto silver and rub. Rinse and dry with a soft cloth. 

Jewelry with Gemstones: Gemstones require a varying care routine and improper care could result in stone fractures, cracks or chips. Please contact us before attempting to clean your gemstone jewelry at home.
