It is recommended to keep jewellery from salt water, chlorine, sauna or any chemicals such as hairspray, perfume, oils, lotions, cleaning supplies etc. When not in use we recommend a quick clean with lukewarm water and mild soap. Completely pat dry with a non abrasive soft cloth before packing away in their box and an airtight plastic bag to help prevent tarnishing.
Proper care of your gold jewellery will assure a long-lasting glow. Gold is tarnish-resistant, but it can get dirty or smudged. Every so often, clean your gold jewelry. Do not use any kind of abrasive that might scratch the gold. Rinse and pat dry jewellery after cleaning
Silver is a beautiful precious metal and natural oxidization does happen after continuous wear from contact with moisture/oils from the skin, things you may use like perfume for example, lotions and exposure to the natural elements. Follow general care.
Bronze is a metal that consists of a mixture of copper, tin and zinc giving it that gold tone and look without the expensive cost of gold. Making it very affordable to everyone who wants a lovely classic piece of jewellery. Just like most metals Bronze tends to oxidize. It is in it's nature to age beautifully through everyday wear and being exposed to the natural elements. If you prefer to keep shiny use a jewellery polishing cloth. Follow general care.
To keep and maintain your jewellery this is recommended depending on the condition. There may be a cases where there was a reaction to chemicals from perfumes, lotions, oils, sprays, cleaning products, etc. causing the jewellery to tarnish which may need a more cleaning.
