Jewelry Care Guide
Silver and bronze naturally oxidize with time. This oxidation which shows up as a grey hue/antique patina, can be removed with a jewelry polish cloth (We like Sunshine Polishing cloths).
To delay oxidation, keep your jewelry away from heat and moisture. Always store in a cool, dry place. When you’re not wearing your jewelry, store it the box or pouch that it came in or in a sealed plastic bag. Avoid impact with hard surfaces, including other items of jewelry. Remove jewelry when doing strenuous activities.
Exposure to liquids and chemicals can cause jewelry to tarnish. Avoid direct contact with water and chemical products such as; chlorine, perfume, detergents, hair spray, lotions, etc.
Gold Plate is a layer of gold applied as a coating to another metal. We plate in yellow gold over bronze. Rhodium Plating is either black or white and is used to plate silver or bronze.
We recommend cleaning your plated jewelry using a damp, soft cloth. Make sure to fully dry the piece before wearing it. Do not use harsh chemicals, jewelry cleaners, or polishing cloths, as this will affect the plated finish.
Natural gemstones may chip or shatter on impact with hard surfaces. Please take care when handling and storing.
