Care Instructions for Sterling Silver Jewelry 

To ensure the longevity and beauty of your silver pieces, we recommend following these care instructions:

Avoid Exposure to Chemicals: Keep your sterling silver jewelry away from harsh chemicals, such as perfumes, cosmetics, hair sprays, and cleaning products. These chemicals can cause tarnishing and damage to the silver. We also recommend removing your jewelry before entering a Hot Tub.

Remove Jewelry During Vigorous Activities: It's advisable to remove your sterling silver jewelry before engaging in activities that may expose it to potential damage. This helps to prevent scratches, dents, and accidental impacts.

Store Properly: When not wearing your sterling silver jewelry, store it in a clean, cool, and dry place. We recommend using an airtight bag to prevent scratching and minimize exposure to moisture and air, which can contribute to tarnishing.

Clean Regularly: To remove dirt, oils, and light tarnish, clean your sterling silver jewelry regularly. Use a soft, lint-free cloth or a silver polishing cloth to buff the surface gently. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that could scratch or damage the silver.

Prevent Tarnishing: Tarnishing is a natural process that occurs with sterling silver over time. To minimize tarnish, you can store your jewelry in an airtight bag or add anti-tarnish strips to your storage container. Additionally, wearing your silver jewelry frequently can help prevent tarnishing as the oils from your skin can create a protective barrier.

Care Instructions for 14K Gold-Filled and 14K Rose Gold-Filled Jewelry  

We use 14K Gold-Filled and 14K Rose Gold-Filled, which is a type of jewelry that consists of a layer of solid gold bonded to a base metal, like sterling silver. The gold layer is thicker and more durable compared to gold-plated jewelry. Gold-filled jewelry is 95% gold and offers the beauty and elegance of 100% gold at a more accessible price. You will not experience peel or flake like you may with alternative metals. It is resistant to tarnishing and can last your lifetime with proper care. It is a great option for those seeking high-quality jewelry that combines the beauty of gold, with durability and accessibility. 

Avoid Exposure to Chemicals: Keep your gold-filled jewelry away from harsh chemicals, such as perfumes, lotions, hairsprays, and cleaning products. These substances can damage the gold and potentially cause discoloration or tarnishing.

Prevent Tarnishing: Gold-filled jewelry is resistant to tarnishing. However, to maintain its shine and prevent any potential discoloration, store your jewelry in an airtight bag or add anti-tarnish strips to your storage container. 

Remove Jewelry During Vigorous Activities: It's advisable to remove your gold-filled jewelry before engaging in activities that may expose it to potential damage. This helps to prevent scratches, dents, and accidental impacts.

Care Instructions for Pearls

Pearls are meant to be worn! However, they require care to maintain their luster and beauty. Follow these guidelines to keep your pearls looking their best:

Avoid Contact with Chemicals: Pearls are organic gemstones that can be easily damaged by chemicals found in perfumes, cosmetics, hairsprays, and cleaning products. Always apply these substances before wearing your pearls and ensure they are fully dry before putting on your jewelry.

Protect from Extreme Temperatures: Pearls are sensitive to extreme temperatures and humidity. Avoid exposing them to direct sunlight, heat sources, or excessive moisture. Store your pearls in a cool, dry place, away from sunlight and away from other jewelry that could scratch their surface.

Handle with Care: When handling your pearls, be gentle and avoid dropping or banging them against hard surfaces. Pearls are relatively soft and can be scratched or chipped if mishandled.

Put on Last, Remove First: To minimize exposure to cosmetics, oils, and perspiration, put on your pearl jewelry as the final touch after applying makeup, perfume, and hairspray. When removing your jewelry, do so first to prevent snagging or damage.

Clean with Mild Solution: Occasionally clean your pearls with a soft, damp cloth to remove any buildup of dirt or oils. Avoid using harsh cleaning agents or brushes that could scratch the pearls. If necessary, use a mild solution of lukewarm water and a gentle soap specifically formulated for delicate jewelry. Gently wipe the pearls with a soft cloth and let them air dry completely before storing.

Separate from Other Jewelry: To prevent scratches and tangles, store your pearls separately from other jewelry, preferably in a soft pouch or a lined jewelry box. Consider wrapping each pearl piece individually in a soft cloth to provide extra protection.

Wear Regularly: Pearls benefit from being worn regularly as the body's natural oils can help maintain their luster. However, avoid wearing pearls when engaging in activities that could expose them to potential damage or stress, such as swimming, sports, or household chores.
