Jewelry Care

CARING FOR YOUR JEWELRY

All fine silver and sterling silver jewelry will eventually need care as age and exposure to everyday elements take a toll on it . Moisture, humidity, and perfumes, can cause your jewelry to tarnish but a quick wipe with a polishing cloth will quickly return it's luster. Your jewelry has been oxidized to bring out the detail of the charm so it is not recommended that you use any silver creams or dips to clean it. Simply clean with warm soapy water and buff with a soft polishing cloth until you're happy with the look. Store your jewelry in a resealable plastic bag to delay tarnishing and prevent scratches when not in use. We do not recommend wearing your jewelry in the ocean, pools or hot tubs, chlorine will turn your sterling silver jewelry black.

Brass Jewelry 

Your Bronze charms are easy to care for!  As they age with time they will become a warm brown color and can easily be cleaned or shined up to their original appearance by simply buffing with a soft polishing cloth. Do not use chemical cleaners or dips as this will ruin the finish on the charm and may leave it looking spotted.  Use a soft damp cloth to gently rub the piece. Store your jewelry  in a resealable plastic bag to delay  tarnishing and prevent scratches when not in use.  We do not recommend wearing your jewelry in the ocean, pools or hot tubs.

Gold Plated Jewelry

Gold plated charms are made by covering fine silver with a thin layer of gold. The gold plating will eventually wear away, but with proper care, it can last a long time. Do not use chemical cleaners or dips. Use a soft damp cloth to gently rub the piece. Do not over polish the surface of gold plated jewelry, or use an abrasive cloth to polish or "shine-up", each time you polish your piece you're removing a little gold. Store your jewelry in a resealable plastic bag to delay tarnishing and prevent scratches when not in use.  We do not recommend wearing your jewelry in the ocean, pools or hot tubs.
