JEWELRY CARE

Get the most from your purchase

Our jewelry is delicate and does require care when worn.  We recommend that it not be worn when you are sleeping, swimming, or participating in sporting activities, bathing or in showers.  Also, try to avoid perfumes and makeup and take care to avoid knocks and scratches where feasible.  Ideally you should store your jewelry pieces separately.

SILVER JEWELRY

At the end of the day, we all seek connection. Through the creation of traditional handmade products we support strong communities, positive relationships, and laying the foundation for building new bridges between people.

FOR GOLD PLATED/VERMEIL JEWELRY

Solid gold jewelry should be polished with a special polishing cloth. For gold plated jewelry, gently clean it with a cotton ball or soft cloth to remove dust and dirt. If your jewelry requires more extensive cleaning, you can use warm water and mild soap. Dry thoroughly with a cloth. Always remove gold plated jewelry before bathing and exercising and avoid applying creams/perfumes while wearing to maximize its lifespan.

PEARLS & SEMI-PRECIOUS STONES

Pearls benefit from regular wear — however, care must be taken not to expose them to perspiration or cosmetics. If you need to clean your pearls, simply wipe them with a soft cloth. Friction with hard materials can abrade the surface of a pearl, so make sure to store it separately from other jewelry items.  Semi-precious stones should be wiped with a soft cloth and mild soap & water if absolutely necessary.

LEATHER

Leather is a strong material, but it should not be worn in or exposed to water. Again, if feasible, please avoid exposure to perfumes, creams and soaps.
