Jewelry Care tips & instractions
Every piece of jewelry is something special. It is a part of your life. It is either a reminder of a precious memory, a gift from a loved one, or even that little extra something you give yourself once in a while just because you deserve it!
You should handle your jewelry with care. Don't use any chemicals to clean them.
A simple polishing cloth should do the trick! Avoid skin creams, hairspray and even perfume to come into contact with your jewelry.
We advise you against wearing any piece of jewelry while bathing, sleeping or during heavy physical activity.
Store your jewelry in a nice jewelry box. The better care you take of your special ones, the more you will enjoy them!
