In addition to the jewellery care cards which are included in your packages, here are some other ways you can increase the life expectancy of your jewellery pieces.
Fashion Jewellery Care Tips
DON’T WASH DISHES OR DO LAUNDRY WITH YOUR JEWELLERY ON
Many cleaning products that come in contact with your beautiful jewellery that can take off the finish. Why? Because of the harsh chemicals.
DON’T WEAR JEWELLERY IN POOL OR AT THE SPA
Chlorinated water can react with the metals found in jewellery causing your awesome bangle or necklace to change color.
DON’T PUT ON LOTION OR PERFUME WITH YOUR JEWELRY ON
For the same reasons listed above, lotions and perfumes that are not 100% natural can react unfavorably with your jewellery.
Basically, keep your jewellery away from the following: water, dishwashing soap, lotion, perfume, silver cleaner and other harsh chemicals.
Stainless Steel Jewellery
Stainless steel jewellery is made of a steel alloy that contains chromium. The good thing about stainless steel is that it does not corrode or rust. Although it is also very durable, this type of steel can get scratched and stained. This is why you should follow some simple rules to keep your stainless steel jewellery in good condition.
Although stainless steel jewellery doesn’t tarnish or corrode and doesn’t require special care, it can scratch.
That’s why you should wear and store your pieces in a way that minimizes any contact with other items that can damage your stainless steel jewellery.
Natural Stone Bracelets
The elastic cord will wear down with long exposure to water, both hot and cold. Keep your stretch bracelets away from harsh cleaning chemicals, extreme temperatures, lotions, perfumes, soaps, and anything that will react with the elastic. Wear your stretch bracelets the proper way. Do not overstretch.
Obsidian Designs Limited offer free restring of our bracelets at any of our pop-up shops.
