Jewelry Care

To ensure that your sterling silver jewelry remains as beautiful and cherished as the day you received it, we recommend following these care instructions. Proper care and maintenance will preserve the shine and prevent damage to your precious pieces.

General Care:

  • Avoid Water and Moisture:  Always remove your jewelry before engaging in activities that involve water. This includes bathing, swimming, and even washing dishes. Moisture can tarnish the silver and weaken stretch bracelets over time.
  • Apply Products First: Lotions, perfumes, hairspray, and other chemical substances can be harsh on sterling silver. To protect your jewelry, apply all personal care products before putting on your jewelry. Let your skin dry completely to ensure no residual products come into contact with the metal.
  • Physical Activities: We recommend removing your jewelry during physical activities, including exercise, gardening, or any other tasks that might expose your jewelry to sweat, dirt, or impact. This will prevent potential damage and maintain the integrity of the stretch bracelets.

Cleaning and Storage:

  • Regular Cleaning: Gently wipe your sterling silver jewelry with a soft, lint-free cloth after each wear. This will remove any oils or residues and prevent tarnish.
  • Deep Cleaning: For a deeper clean, use a mild soap and warm water solution. Soak your jewelry briefly, then use a soft brush (like a soft-bristle toothbrush) to gently clean intricate designs or patterns. Rinse thoroughly with clean water and dry completely with a soft cloth. Ensure your jewelry is completely dry before storing it.
  • Proper Storage: Store your sterling silver jewelry in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight. Keep pieces individually in soft pouches or lined jewelry boxes to prevent scratching and tangling.

Special Considerations for Stretch Bracelets:

  • Gentle Handling: When putting on or taking off your stretch bracelets, roll them over your hand gently. Avoid stretching or pulling them excessively, as this can weaken the elastic over time.
  • Avoid Overstretching: Do not overstretch the bracelet beyond its natural circumference. This will help maintain the elastic's integrity and prevent breakage.

By following these care instructions, you can enjoy the beauty and radiance of your sterling silver jewelry for many years to come. If you have any specific questions about caring for your piece, please feel free to contact us.
