SOLID GOLD, STERLING SILVER, OR PLATINUM JEWELRY
►Your jewelry is designed to withstand the normal rigors of modern life, but keep in mind that they are still made from precious metals and delicate stones. While our solid gold, sterling silver, and platinum pieces can be worn all day, everyday, try to minimize exposure to cleaning agents, beauty products, water, and chemicals.
►How to clean solid gold, sterling silver, or platinum jewelry
Mix a few drops of detergent-free soap with warm water. One piece at a time, soak your jewelry and use a very soft brush to lightly clean each piece. Rinse with care (and don’t drop it down the drain – learn from our experience)! Finally, lightly dry the jewelry with a lint-free jewelry polishing cloth.
►How to store solid gold, sterling silver, or platinum jewelry
We recommend storing your jewelry in a dry area to prevent exposure to the air and moisture. Don’t keep it stored for too long though – it was made to be worn!
►Your vermeil pieces should ideally not come in contact with excessive sweat, water, or chemicals. Take off your vermeil before you shower, wash hands, or exercise. Apply cleaning agents, beauty products, water and chemicals before you put on your pieces. Wait five minutes after applying lotions to put on your pieces.
►How to clean vermeil jewelry
To clean your vermeil, wipe it down thoroughly with cotton cloth every now and then. Avoid using a brush or coarse fabrics to clean vermeil jewelry as this can potentially scratch the surface.
►Although rare, sometimes individual body chemistries can react with the metal and cause a reaction. Pregnancy, thyroid disorders, hormone levels, medications and more can affect body alkalinity versus acidity, and may cause a reaction with your piece. It’s definitely a wild-card and is based on the individual.
