Tips to ensure your precious jewelry lasts a lifetime.
Storage: Many of our pieces are made with 18K and 23K gold plated sterling silver and brass (2.0 microns for earrings and 3.0 microns for rings). The silver pieces receive a Rhodium treatment to assure a better finish and brightness. We also use Ruthenium, a precious metal that gives a characteristic metallic gray color to our jewels. We also work with 1mm Diamonds and semi-precious stones such as Amethyst, Green Agate, Baroque Pearls, Jade and Lapis lazuli among others. Protect your jewelry by individually storing each piece in a pouch or soft material to help avoid breakage, scratching or tangling. Always pack your jewelry with care.
Protect Your Jewelry: All jewelry is vulnerable to the hard knocks of daily life. Protect them by avoiding extreme temperatures, constant banging, scratches and harsh chemicals to minimize damage or wear. Care should always be taken when wearing delicate materials and gold plated jewelry.Cleaning Your Plated Jewelry: Although gold plated jewelry will not tarnish, it will get dirty. Protect your layer of gold and extend it's shine by periodically cleaning each piece and avoiding substances that aren’t PH neutral. We recommend removing your jewelry when bathing in freshwater, sea water and chlorinated water. Avoid spraying perfumes or applying creams directly to the jewelry. Even if you’re sure your jewelry hasn’t been exposed to any of the aforementioned substances, it has been in contact with your skin—which does perspire.
