Jewelry Care Guide
Instructions on how to make your treasures last a life-time. Take proper care of you beloved jewelry. Keeping them dry & stored in an airtight jewelry box or bag when not in use, will preserve the lustre of the metal. Avoid contact with perfume, lotions, hairsprays & other chemicals.
Brass is a mix of copper & zinc. With time brass is aging beautifully & getting a darker antique color. Some people like the patina & some prefer the shiny golden look.
Easy, quick & efficient cleaning. Select one of these three techniques.
1. Clean with a dry micro fiber cloth. Perfect for light tarnish.
2. Clean with warm water (not hot) & mild dish detergent. This is ideal to remove light tarnishing, dirt & grime build up. Let the jewelry sit in the solution for a few minutes, if it's very dirty you can leave it longer. Then gently scrub with a soft clean toothbrush.
3. Make a mix with lemon+warm water (not hot). Soak the piece in the lemon water for minimum 15 minutes. If the jewel has a gemstone I recommend that you dip a cloth in the lemon water & gently buff the brass instead, avoid contact with the gemstone.
For 2 & 3: Once you are satisfied with the result, rinse the jewel thoroughly. Be sure to dry the metal well afterward, to avoid water stains. Clean with a microfibre cloth.
925 Sterling silver is a precious metal. It is 92,5% silver. Sterling Silver will tarnish with time. Sterling Silver Sterling silver jewellery can be cleaned very easily with a microfiber silver cloth, but be sure to avoid contact with any stones.
Some of my designs are oxidised, to make the details pop more & give depth to the design.
Gold vermeil is a 2.5 micron overlay of 18karat gold on a base of 925 sterling silver. Buff gently with a soft, dry cotton cloth or microfibre cloth. Never use a silver cloth or chemical cleaners on 18k gold vermeil jewelry as it can peel off the gold finish.
If the gold peels off you can go to a jeweller to refresh & replate your beloved piece.
Clean your gemstones with a soft microfibre cloth. Avoid drastic temperature changes. Do not use jewelry cleaning chemicals on gemstones. Handle with care! Crystals & minerals can be very fragile. Gentleness is key.
Clean the septum before use
Opening & closing: Hold the septum in an upright position. Please use a horizontal twist opening. Twist the ends slightly away from each other, just enough to fit in. By opening in a horizontal motion you will preserve the shape of the ring.
Very important: If the ends are pulled away from each other, as opposed to being twisted, the hoop will become distorted.
When taking out your septum ring, always leave it open in your jewelry box or in a sealed bag. This way you avoid the risk of twisting it both directions when you insert it again.
