How to Take Care of Your Jewelry
All of our pieces are made of 14k Gold-Fill, Sterling Silver and Oxidized Sterling Silver. Gold-filled is considered the best alternative to solid gold in terms of quality and price. It is safe for sensitive skin. You can wear these pieces in the shower, but we recommend not to as it does require extra care and maintenance.
For maintenance of 14kt Gold-filled jewelry:
After each wear, give the piece a quick rinse in lukewarm water and dry it with a soft cloth to remove some makeup and oils. Taking your jewelry off to sleep will do a great deal to help it last longer.
If you know your piece got caked in sunscreen, sweat, or some other product, it's best to give it a nice, deep clean as soon as possible. Grab a bowl of warm water with a squirt of gentle soap or mild dish soap. Let the piece soak for about a minute, and then give it a scrub with an ultra-soft toothbrush (being careful to get into the nooks and crannies where dirt likes to build up.) Rinse it in the water again to make sure all of the soap is off, and dry it well afterward before storing.
For maintenance of Sterling Silver jewelry:
Use a simple microfiber cloth to clean your goods. Focus on maintaining long up-and-down strokes to clean the jewelry. Be sure to use different parts of the cloth to avoid spreading any tarnish. Do not use circular motions here, as it can actually make the tarnish or dirt worse. For more complex or tight, detailed areas, go in with a Q-tip. It'll get into every nook and cranny you need.
For a DIY cleaner, you will need 2 parts water to 1 part baking soda (use a bit more water if the jewelry has delicate features). Stir into a paste, and use an old toothbrush or cleaning wand to apply this DIY cleaner in gentle motions and movements.
For maintenance of Oxidized Sterling Silver jewelry:
Oxidized sterling silver has been intentionally darkened, and cleaning it may strip some or all of the dark film. Instead, buff with a soft cloth to bring up the shine, if desired, or wipe with a damp cloth if dirty. Oxidized silver should be low maintenance.
