Whether you purchased your handmade jewelry from us or have a family heirloom, you want it to look great and last for generations. Here are some ways to help you keep your handmade jewelry looking its best.
Jewelry Care Basics
Jewelry should be kept in a dry airtight container when not being worn. Humid environments (including restrooms) can speed up the tarnishing process. It is best to take pieces off while showering or swimming so they don’t tarnish. Put your jewelry pieces on after applying lotions and sprays.
To clean our silver and gold jewelry, fill a bowl with warm, not boiling, water, and add a few drops of dish soap.
Set your jewelry into the water and leave for 10-15 minutes to soak.
Use a soft-bristle toothbrush or paintbrush to loosen any stubborn dirt between settings or details. A soft, toddler's toothbrush works great.
Rinse and then dry the jewelry by gently patting it with a clean cotton towel.
