Jewelry care 

To keep your jewels beautiful and sparkling, you should care for them regularly. Each material, however, requires a different method.

Silver

Silver can be successfully cleaned by baking soda diluted in water or by white toothpaste. If you want to go for a commercial solution, reach for what the pros use: Simochrome, Flitz or NeverDull metal cleaners. 

Rumor has it that silver can be simply cleaned by ash. It is true. Wet the cloth with water, put on some ash and rub the jewels with a moderate pressure.

Gold

Contrarily to silver, gold is far less sensitive to outside elements. Clean it simply with a soap solution or any other grease detergent diluted in water and a soft brush. 

Brass

Wash your brass jewelry with lemon juice or soap water and dry with a soft cloth. 

Tagua nut, wood and horn

The best way to clean most natural and organic materials is with a damp cloth, dampened with a little water and a few drops of essential oil or vegetable soap. Wood should be periodically lightly oiled with jojoba, coconut or similar natural oil, which will help maintain their moisture content. Remove your jewelry when showering, bathing, or swimming. Do not leave your jewelry in direct sunlight or expose to extreme temperatures; room temperature is best.

Avoid exposing jewelry to shampoo or other beauty care products like hair spray, hair dyes, spray tan, lotions, or perfumes.

Precious stones  

Most of our selection falls into the category of porous stones. Those are emeralds, opals, turquoises, lapis or corals. Clean them with soap water and avoid any harsh cleaning detergents.

Jewels from common metals

Clean them with a solution of washing liquid and hot water one to one. Leave the jewels inside for one hour and it will spark again as new. Jewels made from common metals are less durable and firm than silver and gold ones, please, be more careful with them. Take them of before going to shower, or to bed.
