Jewelry Care Instructions
Polishes or cloths specifically designed for silver should be used to remove tarnish from sterling silver products. Be sure to carefully read labels and warnings carefully. A soft toothbrush with a dab of toothpaste will also remove tarnish from silver. You should store your sterling silver either in a jewelry pouch, box or ziploc bag. Another way to help keep tarnish to a minimum is to wear your jewelry often.
To clean 14kt gold-filled and/or 14kt gold, use a damp cloth or jewelry cleaner and gently wipe clean. Be sure to carefully read labels and warnings carefully. What is gold-filled? 14kt gold-filled or “rolled gold” as it’s sometimes called is made by heat and pressure-bonding a thin layer of gold to a brass core. Karat gold covers the brass surface, making it tarnish-resistant. This product has 100x more gold than a gold-plated product and will last for many years if cared for properly.
With proper attention and handling, pearls can last for generations. However, because cultured pearls are relatively soft compared to other gemstones and precious metals (sterling & gold), it’s important to take special care of them to ensure they remain bright and beautiful. Continuously exposed to harmful products — such as cosmetics, perfumes, hair sprays or abrasive detergents — pearls’ lustre can diminish. For this reason, light cleaning with a soft, damp cloth after each wearing is recommended.
Acids in body oils and perspiration can also damage pearls’ lustre in the same way. Put on your pearls after applying makeup, perfume and hair spray, and then wipe the pearls afterward with a soft damp cloth to remove any harmful build-ups. Occasional washing with a mild soap is also recommended.
While most other gemstones have a greater hardness than pearls, it is also recommended that you keep them clean and avoid exposure to chemicals. Do not wear your pearl and gemstone jewelry into the shower or swimming pool. Chlorine and other chemicals can change the color of your gems.
Similarly, exposure to high heat can discolor some gemstones. Keep your gems at room temperature.
We also recommend that you fasten your necklaces with the clasp in front of you then gently slide the clasp around to the back. Fastening your clasp this way creates less pressure on the strand and clasp.
Proper jewelry care can ensure that you will enjoy your fine silver, gold, pearl and gemstone jewelry for many years.
For cord trim and fabric jewelry please do not swim, bathe, or exercise in your jewelry. To clean perspiration or spot clean, you can purchase a home dry cleaning kit. This care will maintain your jewelry in good shape.
