Jewelry Care Guide
General CareWe recommend removing all jewelry before physical activities where sweat or water are present. This includes, but is not limited to, activities such as showering, swimming, exercising, or washing the dishes. It is particularly important to remove any jewelry that may come in contact with household or industrial cleaners and chemicals more abrasive than mild soap. We also recommend removing all jewelry before bed and to clean it regularly with a jewelry cleaning kit and polishing cloth. Store your jewelry in a soft pouch or jewelry box and avoid storing with other pieces, as they may scratch and wear on one another.
Gold & Platinum
Gold and platinum are precious metals that do not oxidize or discolor. The 14k alloy gives our pieces their beautiful, subtle hue and is perfect for an active lifestyle because it scratches less and doesn't wear out as easily as 18k or 25k.
Help your pieces maintain their luster with occasional cleanings. Even something as strong as 14k solid gold deserves some special care. To maintain its beauty, we recommend using a jewelry-specific cleaner and cloth. A soft brush, such as a baby’s toothbrush, may be used with warm water and mild soap to clean detailed pieces.
925 Sterling Silver is an alloy made of 92.5% pure Silver and 7.5% Copper. Tarnishing is a natural reaction when sterling silver is in the presence of saltwater, air pollutants or everyday items that contain sulfur, such as leather, rubber, and chlorine.
Because sterling silver is H2O sensitive, avoid exposure to water when wearing your piece because over time the sterling silver will oxidize. However, the oils in your skin help keep sterling silver from oxidizing faster. To remove any tarnish, we recommend routinely wiping your sterling silver jewelry with a polishing cloth. Avoid silver polish or dip-style cleaning solutions.
Pronounced: ver - may, gold vermeil should not be confused with regular gold plating. Vermeil is a much thicker layer of gold which gives the pieces their long-lasting color and is more resistant to wear than gold-plating, but not immune.
Sweat and water are particularly hard on vermeil, so be sure to remove before exercising, swimming, or showering. Clean your piece by buffing gently with a dry polishing cloth and store in a soft pouch or secluded from other pieces to prevent wear.
Diamonds are the hardest natural substances found on earth. Our high-quality diamonds are ethically sourced and conflict-free and follow socially responsible practices.
They may be the hardest natural substance but can still suffer from chips & small fractures from sharp blows. Use a jewelry cleaning solution or warm soapy liquid and a soft-bristle toothbrush, and rinse the stone and setting afterward to remove any residue.
There is a wide variety of precious stones and we only use the best. Gemstones vary in hardness, so avoid wearing them where bumps and dings are likely. They’re also sensitive to heat, some jewelry cleaners, and ultrasonic cleaners. This is particularly true for opaque gemstones such as opals.
To keep gemstones clean and shiny use warm soapy water and a soft brush. Gemstones do not like chemicals or excessive temperature so please keep this in mind when cleaning.
The best way to care for your pearls is to wear them. The body’s natural oils help maintain and protect their beauty. Pearls are sensitive in nature, so don’t forget to treat them with love. Keep your pearls away from cosmetics, hair products, sweat, chlorine, saltwater, vinegar, ammonia, and dirt.
Gently wipe pearls with a slightly damp cloth after wearing them. Make sure they are the last thing you put on before going out and the first thing you take off when you come home. Never wash pearls with chemicals or ultrasonic cleaners. Pearls require humidity and moisture, so make sure they are not stored in an overly dry location or they may crack.
