These materials are extremely delicate and are prone to breakage if not handled delicately. We recommend gentle application of Jojoba oil to wood and horn pieces in order to keep them moisturized and clean to extend their life. Bone jewelry however should only be cleaned with a soft cotton or paper cloth in order to keep the bone from discoloring or staining.
Solid 14k Gold
We recommend using a professional grade and rated cleaning solution for our Solid 14k Gold pieces - particularly those with gemstones. A jewelry cloth can also be used to bring back brilliance to pieces that have been worn frequently.
Plated jewelry will naturally fade over time due to friction against against the skin, especially in "high traffic" areas such as the nose (septum clickers) or ear lobes (eyelets). We highly recommend not sleeping, washing or exercising with our plated jewelry to extend the lifespan of the plating. You can keep your plated jewelry clean with a soft cloth or dip that is rated for plated jewelry.
Brass/Metal (non plated)
Brass and Metal (white brass) jewelry may develop a patina over time and slightly darken. A jewelry polishing cloth or dip may be used to clean up the jewelry and bring back it's original brilliance.
Sterling Silver (non plated & plated)
Sterling Silver tarnishes naturally. The rate of tarnishing can then vary from person to person based on exposure to moisture, oils, sweat or facial products. We recommend not sleeping, washing or exercising with our Sterling Silver jewelry. To prevent/remove tarnishing you may use a jewelry polishing cloth or dip rated for Sterling Silver jewelry or plated jewelry.
