Aftercare Tips

Avoid harsh chemicals. Bleach and chlorine can damage the surface of stainless steel metal, therefore, we recommend you remove any jewelry before swimming in chlorinated pools.

If you choose to go with a jewelry cleaner, make sure that it is safe to use on stainless steel metals, as some cleaners can be abrasive and scratch steel.

Avoid storing your jewelry with other sharp objects or jewelry as this could scratch it. Instead, store your jewelry separately in a fabric-lined box or the pouch that was included with your item.

We recommend removing jewelry before showering or going to bed to prevent damage.

With the proper care, your piece will maintain its luster for many years.

Like many other metals, stainless steel can get scratched and lose it's luster, therefore becoming dull. However, this does not mean you throw out your jewelry since restoring it is easy to do and can be done right at home.


Restoring Your Jewelry

The simplest way to clean your jewelry is with a bit of soap and water when it's dull and dirty. This helps clean off any pollutants and grime on your jewelry. Remember to please use a mild liquid soup and warm water. 

Soak the jewelry in a bowl containing a mixture of mild soap and warm water and let sit for a few minutes. Next, take a soft cloth and rub the jewelry. For hard to reach areas, like grooves or engravings, you can use a soft-bristled toothbrush that will ensure you reach those hard to get places. Once you've thoroughly cleaned off your jewelry, reassure you've dried your piece with another lint-free cloth to remove all possibilities of water spots.
