General Jewelry Care
We recommend that customers remove jewelry before going to bed or participating in physical activity. Exposure to certain harsh chemicals or environments will result in compromising the integrity of your jewelry. This includes, but is not limited to the following: perspiration, perfumes, cleaning agents, chlorine, salt water, and silver polish.
IMPORTANT: Gold plated jewelry requires more care. You may wish to clean your jewelry with warm soapy water and gentle brushing with a cotton ball. Do not use a rough brush or sponge as it may wear away at the plating.
Our pieces are delicate, fine, and made with care. Although they will hold up through regular wear, please be cautious not to pull or tug on pieces. Handling them roughly may cause them to break.
Storing your Jewelry
Jewelry should be stored away from natural sunlight and heat, in a protective (lined) jewelry box or a tarnish-resistant pouch. It can also be stored in a plastic zip lock bag made of polyethylene. Do not store your jewelry in the bathroom or any humid spots.

Lemon and Salt Method
Using lemon & salt is a natural way to polish any tarnishes that may happen in metal pieces such as silver, gold, copper or brass. The key is to be gentle but firm! Here are the steps we recommend:
- Cut a lemon in half, be careful to remove seeds.
- Dip the cut part of the lemon where it's open in table salt.
- Holding the lemon by the rind rub the salt-coated lemon over the piece of jewelry you're cleaning.
- Use a clean, dry cloth to buff the piece to its original shine!
