Jewellery Care

These jewels are not as hypersensitive as one would expect, as long as you treat them as a piece of art deserves. Apart form the rules that apply for silver jewellery in general, as described below, one should:

  • Keep all crocheted jewellery away from sparks of fire.
  • Do not hold jewelry out of the crocheted part, the natural oils on your skin can affect jewelry in the long run.

General Rules for silver jewellery care:

  • Sterling silver in general naturally tarnishes with the exposure to air and the environment as well as perfumes, lotions & perspiration.

  • Storing your jewellery properly is important. To avoid damage, keep your jewellery in separate boxes, and fasten all chains and catches before storing flat. Wrap individual pieces in acid free tissue or cloth.
  • Remove bracelets and rings when doing any manual labour, including housework; don’t use abrasive cleaners on jewellery.
  • Gemstones require special care. Avoid impact against hard surfaces. Handle gems and pearls as little as possible; the natural oils on your skin can dull the stone.
  • Try not to get threaded pearl or bead jewellery wet. Although water does not burden the jewelry, it is a good idea to protect it
  • Oxidation: is a chemical process that colours the appearance of silver. With wear, oxidation will often diminish or fully rub off in highly touched areas. Time scale can not be guarantee or determined for any silver jewel.
