As a general rule of thumb, avoid wearing your jewelry in the shower, while sleeping, or when exercising. It is also best to avoid wearing gold jewelry when swimming or cleaning as chemicals such as chlorine can damage the metal. We like to follow the “last on, first off” rule to help keep them clean.
Natural wear and tear means polished and matte finishes turn into more of a satin finish over time, especially on pieces like rings which get heavier wear. We’re happy to restore your piece to it’s original finish anytime.
The silver in some of our items has been darkened with patina or plated with black rhodium, natural wear and tear will expose highlights over time. All of our white gold pieces are rhodium plated and we recommend having them plated again every year.
For light cleaning, mild soap and warm water works best. You can also use a clean soft baby toothbrush or makeup brush with soap and warm water for a little heavier cleaning.
All of our gold and silver pieces containing diamonds, rubies, or sapphires can also be cleaned with an ultrasonic or steam cleaner.
Pieces containing black tourmalines, morganites, aquamarines, or agates are not suitable for ultrasonic or steam cleaning.
