Jewelry Care Guide
The best way to clean your jewelry is by purchasing a jewelry polishing cloth and gently rubbing your piece of jewelry with the cloth. After a couple of strokes of the cloth over the jewelry, the jewelry is restored to its original condition and is ready to wear once again. Avoid the use of tissue or paper towels because the fibers in these materials can cause scratches. We do not recommend that you dip your jewelry in jewelry cleaning solutions as this will remove the jewelry's natural protective cover and prevent it from restoration in the future.
Plated Jewelry: some of our pieces of jewelry is rhodium, gold or rose gold plated. These pieces go through a special manufacturing process to make the silver look like another color. It is very important to handle these pieces similar to fine jewelry. Furthermore, Rhodium plated silver has been plated and thus the underlying silver will not tarnish.
Remove jewelry when performing labour intensive tasks, or sports. This is to prevent physical damage or exposure to chemicals or cleaning fluids. When wearing your precious jewelry, avoid kitchen work, gardening, cleaning the house, playing sports, or simply remove prior to performing these tasks.
Put jewelry on after cosmetic application - cosmetics, hairspray, perfumes and lotion often contain chemicals that can damage jewelry.
Remove jewelry before entering pools or spas - chlorinated water may cause color changes and even structural damage due to chlorine's reaction with metals. Therefore, its best to remove your precious metals when swimming or going to spas.
Remove your jewelry before bathing - soap can cause a film to form, making it appear dull and dingy.
To ensure longer life of your precious jewelry, keep it in a cool dry place that is not exposed to sunlight when it is not worn.
It is important to ensure that our sparkle ball necklaces, earrings and bracelets are kept dry and do not rub together. This may cause them to loose stones.
