Care of your Piece

Each piece is unique, and its individual features are emphasized according to its use and time, making them even more precious! The longevity of the piece depends of the care it receives, this way you should avoid direct contact with perfume, lotions, hair spray and excessive sweat.
Store your jewelry separately since the contact between metal pieces and stones of different hardness could damage them. Use preferably the original packaging or envelopes of leather or fabric.

With time silver and gold suffer a natural slight change in color, a result of the natural oxidation of the metal. Simple cleaning will return the piece to its natural color. Soak the piece in warm water for 10 minutes with a little piece of neutral soap, then use a soft brush and rinse with plenty of water, and dry with a soft cloth.
Pearls and corals and other organic gems need extra care: they cannot have contact with the salty sea water or pool water. They should be cleaned only with a soft humid cloth, without brushing or any harsh friction.

The 24k gold plated steel cord, which has high resistance, lightness and elegance; with use it may acquire marks. If you wish your wire to remain in its original state, avoid folding it, since it will not return to its previous shape.
