Care Instructions

Cleaning your jewelry

Clean your jewelry regularly using a soft cloth to remove any dirt or sweat that can accumulate with daily wear. If you have purchased jewelry from our store, you can use the soft bag that we package your jewelry in to clean it.

Storing your jewelry

When storing your jewelry, make sure it is in a dry environment, away from direct sunlight and moisture. Also, it is important to make sure that the jewelry is dry when storing it. The ideal place to store your jewelry when you are not wearing it is in a jewelry box or in a jewelry bag.

FAQ - Jewelry Care

What should you avoid doing with stainless steel jewelry?

  • Avoid contact with salt water, swimming pools and hot tub water, wax, perfume & toxic liquids. This can damage the jewelry.
  • Avoid wearing your stainless steel jewelry during activities that have a high risk of scratching the stainless steel such as certain sports, cleaning, etc.
  • Avoid using harsh soaps when cleaning your stainless steel jewelry. You should use mild soap instead while scrubbing gently.

Can you shower with stainless steel jewelry? 

  • Silver color jewelry can be worn in the shower or any normal water as much as you would like as it is water safe and non tarnish.
  • Although our gold color jewelry will not tarnish with normal wear, we do not recommend wearing it in the shower, because it has been plated with a gold color that may fade over time if worn in the water too often.

Will stainless steel jewelry turn green or black?

No, never! Stainless steel jewelry is non tarnish, and it does not rust, which means it does not create these colors when in contact with water for example.

How long does stainless steel jewelry last?

Stainless steel jewelry can last for a very long time if well taken care of. You should avoid contact with all toxic liquids such as bleach or chlorine, and store the jewelry in a safe environment when it is not being worn. If you follow our care instructions, your jewelry will last for many years!
