Each piece is handmade with lots of love and time. Due to the nature of fine jewelry and gemstones, each piece should be handled with care. We highly suggest talking off your jewelry before washing your hands, showering, or doing any hard work, ensuring and preserving the quality of each piece. Please note ALL opal, pearl, and emerald pieces must be taken off when in any kind of water, to preserve the quality, as these are naturally a soft stone.
All sterling silver naturally oxidizes or tarnishes. Prolonged exposure to the air and your body’s natural chemistry can speed up this process for us. Avoid direct contact with showers, perfume, lotion, chlorine, and bleach. All silver jewelry should be stored in a little air-tight ziplock bag to help slow the oxidation process.
Cleaning your jewellery is as easy as pie (actually it’s much easier than making pie!) Depending on what you have at home, you don’t need to put much time or effort in to cleaning your favorite pieces.
STEP 1. Mix 1 part dish soap or baking soda with 10 parts warm water. Mix your solution until slightly bubbly.
- Create your own jewellery cleansing solution with mild soap or dish soap and warm water. You can also use baking soda. You can soak your jewellery overnight but do not soak soft gemstones such as emeralds or opals. For more durable pieces that are pure gold or diamonds, you may even soak your jewellery in the soda water.
STEP 2. Depending on how dirty your pieces are, you may soak it in the mixture for about 20 minutes. Use a soft bristled toothbrush away any debris (such as dead skin, lotion or oils).
- Dip your Jewellery in the solution and even brush with a soft bristled toothbrush to get into the nooks and crannies. You may also rub the jewellery between your fingers for slight friction if you don’t have a brush
STEP 3. Rinse jewellery in fresh clean water and dry with soft towel
- Make sure here is no soap residue. After rinsing your jewellery in fresh water, pat dry with a towel. Make sure your jewellery is completely dry, especially on gemstones such as emeralds or opals.
STEP 4. Additionally you can use a polishing cloth for extra luster.
- Jewellery polishing cloths are great to add that extra shine to restore your pieces to like new. Please note there are specific cloths for gem and metals. You need to check before use. Some cloths will be intended for shining meta and can and will damage a gemstone. Be very careful
