Care of Jewellery
Cleaning or cleaning of gold or silver jewellery, or care for gold or silver plated jewellery is essential to keep them beautiful for long. Many factors influence the durability of your jewellery, which is why it is important to take good care of them.
How to clean your silver or gold jewellery?
When you want to clean jewellery, the best jewellery cleaner is actually a soft cloth. And it is especially important to clean your jewelry with one if the jewellery has been exposed to moisture (eg water, sweat, or us) or chemicals (eg chlorine, perfume or hair varnish) and if the body has been in imbalance due to alcohol, medication, stress or air pollution. These factors can provoke a chemical reaction in the metal that can be seen in the form of rapid oxidation.
If they are exposed to some of these factors anyway, you can polish your jewellery or clean your jewelleryagain with a soft cloth.
Avoid quick wear and tear by properly grooming your jewellery
To avoid e.g. an oxidized silver ring, or oxidation in general, it is important that you keep your jewellery in a dry place. Therefore, we do not recommend that your jewellery be stored in the bathroom, as the high humidity will adversely affect the surface treatment of the jewelry. Furthermore, we recommend that you take your jewellery off when you go to sleep, exercise, or swim.
Please note that over time, all coated surfaces will oxidize and change appearance.
