Efforts spent on care and consideration will allow your fine jewelry to last for many years to come. It is a good practice to remove jewelry when doing household chores, exercising, bathing, and sleeping just to name a few. This can lengthen the life of a piece dramatically, and can lessen the chances of damaging an item or putting it through unnecessary wear and tear. It can also reduce exposure to chemicals in cleaning or body products that can cause harm to the materials as well as weaken solder joints.
Check in on your jewelry daily. Most broken chains or lost earrings occur as a result of continuous wear without checking to detangle chains or re-secure earring backs.
To clean most gold and platinum jewelry, we recommend mild dish or hand soap, warm water, and a soft toothbrush. Soft stones such as opals or turquoise should not be polished with a brush or cloth. Stone settings should be checked at least once a year by a jeweler to ensure that wear and tear has not caused settings to wear down or be moved out of place. If the jewelry is being worn every day, it should be checked twice a year.
For cleaning sterling silver we suggest a silver cream polish called Wright's Silver Cream. This can be found at most supermarkets or hardware stores in the cleaning aisle. A polishing cloth can also be a great way to quickly wipe down a piece.
Each piece is hand-made to order and will be ready to ship in 1 to 2 weeks. You can expect to receive tracking with the shipping notification email immediately prior to your order going out. Wedding bands and engagement rings require 3-4 weeks before they will ship.
