Keeping your jewelry looking clean and shiny for years to come is simple! Here are a few basic steps you can take to ensure proper care:
•Avoid wearing while using household products that contain harsh chemicals.
•Remove jewelry before gardening, swimming or showering. Apply lotions, hairsprays and perfumes before putting your jewelry back on.
•Gently wash with warm water, mild soap and a soft toothbrush.
•Polish as necessary with a soft chamois or Sunshine cloth.
**Please do not polish gold vermeil jewelry with a sunshine cloth or any other abrasives. It will gradually remove the layer of gold plating, which will reveal the silver underneath**
•When storing for long periods of time, keep sealed in an airtight bag with an anti-tarnish strip.
•Never use abrasive materials to clean your pearls, instead, opt for a soft damp cloth or jewelry cleaners labeled safe for pearls.
•Store in a soft cloth or pouch rather than a plastic bag.
