TIPS ON HOW YOU SHOULD CARE FOR YOUR JEWELRY
At Caotic we believe that you should take care of your jewelry exactly the same as you take care of your favorite item of clothing.
Always keep your jewelry individually in its cases. Also, remember to keep your necklaces and chains separate so they don't get tangled.
Be careful and avoid humidity or extreme heat, as they can cause your jewelry to lose shine. Your gold and silver jewelry should be stored in a dark, cool and dry place. Over time and wear, sterling silver naturally oxidizes and eventually loses its shine. Store silver jewelry in a sealed plastic bag or airtight box when not wearing it, so that you keep it away from air that causes oxidation.
All of our sterling silver Caotic pieces are plated with rhodium, which protects the silver from exposure and helps reduce tarnish in the long term.
HOW TO CLEAN YOUR JEWELRY
Clean your jewelry carefully with a soft, non-rough, lint-free cloth; This helps maintain or restore its shine. If necessary, you can use a mild detergent with warm water and a soft toothbrush, then rinse with clean water and dry with a soft cloth.
Avoid using harsh cleaning products for polishing, as they contain very strong chemicals and can deteriorate your jewelry over time. We do not recommend using jewelry polishing cloths that have been treated with cleaning or polishing products.
KEEP YOUR JEWELRY AWAY FROM
Always remember that your jewelry should be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off when you get dressed. Your jewelry is particularly susceptible to damage caused by chemicals in perfumes, hairsprays, makeup, nail polish remover, body oils, suntan lotion, and deodorant.
Do not let sunlight shine directly on your jewelry, as prolonged exposure to it can cause many of the gemstones to lose their color.
Don't swim or bathe while wearing gold- or silver-plated jewelry, and remove your rings when you wash your hands. Chlorine, salt water and fresh water can damage precious metals.
Gold and silver are particularly susceptible to damage from chlorine, which can permanently damage or discolor them. Soapy water when bathing and showering can also damage the metal.
