Care & CleaningPlease treat your jewelry with care. Most designs are very durable but not indestructible. You may have received a small zip lock bag with your purchase. Use it to store pieces separately from each other. Gently push the air out of the bag. This will help reduce tarnish. If you leave a tiny bit of the clasp end of your necklace chain outside the zip bag, it will help prevent tangling. It really works!
We use Tarn-X Dip in our studio to clean everything, including gold pieces. It can be purchased from most big box stores or some local hardware stores, retailing for about $12. Follow the directions carefully. Rinse in running water and dry very well. Repeat if needed. Don't let your piece sit in the solution for more than a few seconds. And don't wait until it gets tarnished beyond repair.
About polishing cloths: Because so much of our jewelry has a matte finish, we do not generally recommend using a polishing cloth as it can make the matte finish shiny.
Please note that many factors can affect jewelry and how quickly it can tarnish. Perfume, hair products, body chemistry, lotions, soaps and local weather (humidity).
We do not recommend sleeping, swimming or showering while wearing your jewelry.
