Materials & Care
HOW SHOULD I TAKE CARE OF MY JEWELLERY?
You should take care of your jewelry just like you would with your favorite garment.
Always keep your jewelry pieces individually in their soft lining boxes. Also, remember to keep your necklaces and chains tied so they don't get tangled.
Be careful and avoid extreme humidity or heat, as this can cause the loss of shine on your jewelry. Your gold and sterling silver jewelry should be stored in a dark, cool and dry place. With time and wear, sterling silver oxidizes naturally and eventually loses its shine. Store the silver jewelry in a sealed plastic bag or in an airtight box when you do not use them, so you will keep the air that causes the oxidation away.
All our CAOTIC sterling silver pieces are covered with rhodium, which protects the silver from exposure and helps reduce tarnish in the long term.
HOW SHOULD I CLEAN MY JEWELRY?
Clean your jewelry carefully with a soft cloth, not rough and lint-free; This helps maintain its brightness. 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 polishing products because they contain very strong chemicals and can damage your jewelry over time. We don't recommend the use of cloths to polish jewellery that has been treated with cleaning products or polishes.
KEEP YOUR JEWELLERY AWAY FROM
Always remember that your jewelry should be the last thing you wear and the first thing you take off when you dress. Your jewelry is particularly susceptible to damage caused by chemicals that contain perfumes, lacquers, makeup, nail polish remover, body oils, suntan lotion and deodorant. Do not let the sunlight directly from your jewelry, as prolonged exposure to it can cause many of the precious stones to lose their color.
Do not swim or bath while wearing gold plated jewelry, and remove the rings when you wash your hands. Chlorine, salt water and fresh water can damage precious metals.
Gold and silver are particularly susceptible to damage by chlorine, which can damage or discolor them permanently. Soaping water when showering and showering can also harm the metal.
Clean your enamel jewellery pieces with warm water, a mild liquid soap and a soft cloth, and store in a dark, cool place to prevent damage. Keep your enamel away from harsh chemicals, perfumes, detergents and chlorine.
