Cleaning your jewelry regularly will help keep it looking brand new. Do not use any abrasive brushes as this will cause scratches on the metal and some gemstones.

We recommend cleaning your jewelry by making a paste consisting of mild dishwashing liquid and baking soda. Rub gently or use a soft toothbrush to brush gently the chain or areas of wire wrapping. Avoid brushing any gemstones or charms, instead use the cloth provided or you can purchase a silver polishing cloth on charms. Gems can be gently cleaned with mild soap and gently rub with fingers.

Protect your jewelry in individual ziploc baggies and store them in a jewelry box or a drawer. This will prevent scratches and oxidation. Using anti-tarnish strips is a good idea. Change strips every 6 months. Keep jewelry and jewelry box out of your bathroom or any high humidity room...just like your perfumes.

Gold is measured on a scale of 24 karats. 24K is 100% pure gold and very soft, making it prone to scratching and bending. 14K and 18K gold are our favorite choices as they are very durable and more resistant to scratching.
A soft, lint-free polishing cloth will help maintain gold jewelry's beauty. Please see your polishing cloth's informational label to make sure it is safe for gold.

24K Gold Vermeil is sterling silver coated with 24K gold, making it a precious metal all the way through. The gold coating can last many years with the proper care.
Use a soft, lint-free polishing cloth to clean lightly. Please see your polishing cloth's informational label to make sure it is safe for vermeil jewelry. Vermeil jewelry should not be aggressively cleaned as the gold coating will be thinned. Harmful agents listed above in addition to water (i.e. showers, pools, beaches, etc.) should be especially avoided when wearing vermeil jewelry.

14K Gold-Filled is a solid layer of 14K gold bonded to a base metal. It is 100 times thicker than gold-plating and in turn can last for many years. Use a soft, lint-free polishing cloth to clean. Please see your polishing cloth's informational label to make sure it is safe for gold-filled jewelry.

Sterling Silver naturally oxidizes and therefore tarnishes.

Gemstones vary in hardness on the Mohs scale, but all should be worn and stored with delicate care. All gemstones, especially softer ones, should avoid prolonged exposure to chemicals, water and sunlight as they may cause colors to fade. Opals, pearls and turquoise are more porous stones and should not be submerged underwater.
