Caring for your

Summary: Moisture, Chemicals, Prolonged Wear = Sad-Mono

While most of our pieces are designed for everyday wear, that doesn't mean they don't need to be cared for.
Regular cleaning and a little extra love goes a long way

14k Gold

Don't Forget to Clean Me

Though gold may be one of the least reactive metals, it is important to remove gold jewelry before showering, swimming, and sweating, as the exposure to moisture, body oils, and chemicals can dull its shine and in rare cases, cause the gold to oxidize. This typically occurs in places where gold is in constant contact with skin (such as earring posts, inside rings, etc.) but can be easily remedied with proper cleaning and polishing.

Show your gold jewelry some love by regularly cleaning with warm water, mild detergent, and a soft toothbrush, or polishing gently with a soft cloth. A jewelry polishing cloth may be used for a little extra shine or to remove tarnish.

Sterling Silver

Wear Me Often or Store Me Well

Silver tarnishes easily, but lucky for you one of the best ways to keep your silver jewelry bright is to keep wearing it. The oils in your skin help to protect against tarnishing. When not being worn, store in an airtight bag to keep moisture and oxygen away.

Clean silver jewelry gently with a jewelry polishing cloth to maintain its shine.

Vermeil

I may be gold on the outside, but I'm sensitive

Vermeil jewelry features a thick layer of gold plated over sterling silver. Though this plating will wear off over time, proper care will extend the life of your vermeil jewelry. Absolutely avoid exposure to moisture, lotions, chemicals, abrasives, etc. and store in airtight containers or bags.

Carefully clean your vermeil pieces with a cotton ball or soft cloth that DOES NOT contain abrasives or polishing compounds. DO NOT use jewelry cleaners or polishing agents.

Gemstones

A little extra TLC

Gemstones, especially softer stones like Opals, deserve a little extra love. Follow the care instructions detailed above and be mindful of removing gemstone jewelry before engaging in physical activities.

Gently clean your gemstone jewelry with a soft cloth and store in a clean, dry place.
