Product Care Tips
Jewelry care is the most important aspect of owning a jewelry. Below are recommended tips to keeping your jewelry true.
EXPOSER TO PERSONAL FRAGRANCES
Always take off your jewelry before using any cosmetics, hair spray or perfume to avoid your jewelry to turn brown, dry out or crack.
CARING FOR SEMI-PRECIOUS STONES
Pearls, corals, turquoise, jade, moonstone are among the gemstones that are considered semi-precious stones. According to the American Gem Trade Association, "...all natural stones are rare and precious." Regular cleaning is part of taking care of semi-precious stones. Use a damp cloth to wipe the surface - spot clean only.
CARING FOR PEARLS
Pearls are very soft and need special care and attention. You should never store your pearls in a jewelry box next to other jewelry, as it can damage the pearls by scratching and nicking. Instead keep your pearls in a fabric lined box or fabric pouch. If pearls are worn regularly, you should wipe them with a soft cloth after every wearing. Pearls will gradually absorb acid from the skin that will eat into the pearl causing it to lose its luster. Wiping pearls off with either a wet or dry soft cloth will prevent dirt from accumulating. Chemicals and heat can also damage pearls. Only use cleaners that are specifically and clearly marked safe for pearls. Never use toothbrushes or any other abrasive materials to clean your pearls.
CARING FOR GOLD PLATING AND SILVER PLATING
Keep plated jewelry away from hard surfaces as bumps as scratches will cause the layer to wear away faster. Store your plated jewelry in a velvet lined jewelry box or wrap in a soft material to prevent scratches. To remove dirt from accumulating, lightly wipe your plated jewelry with a damp cotton cloth. A non-abrasive jewelry polishing cloth can be also used to restore shine. For extreme cases where the plating is completely off, you can take it to your local jeweler where they may be able to replace the gold or silver layer.
CARING FOR SILVER
Silver is a versatile metal with a soft luster that is beautiful, but is also more fragile compared to other metals. To keeping your silver like new and remove tarnish, do NOT use bleach and chlorine. For silver that is dull and starting to discolor, mix a few drops of mild dish soap with warm water, dip in a soft cloth, rub the jewelry, then rinse in cool water and buff dry. For heavier tarnish, mix a paste of three parts baking soda to one part water. Wet the silver and apply the cleaner with a soft, lint-free cloth. Rinse and buff dry. Do not soak silver. Silver jewelry cleaners sold in market can also be used.
CARING FOR GOLD
Gold does not tarnish but it can be dirtied or dulled by oils in your skin, body lotion or makeup. There are products in the market that can clean gold, though you can also do it at home with a mild detergent and a soft cloth. Mix a drop of mild dish detergent with warm water in a bowl, and soak the gold jewelry for a few minutes. Use a soft toothbrush to gently scrub the jewelry, if needed. Remove the gold jewelry from soapy water and rinse dry thoroughly with a soft polishing cloth.
CARING FOR FACE MASKS
Please wash your fabric face mask before first use. You are also advised to wear a clean washed fabric mask every time. Machine wash warm, tumble dry low.
