Jewelry Care

Your jewelry can last you a lifetime if it’s well cared for. It’s important to store your jewelry in a dry, dark place, away from humidity and direct sunlight.  You should also store pieces separately from one another to avoid tangling and rubbing as this may scratch the metal. Best practice is to store jewelry in small, sealed plastic bags when not worn for extended periods.  This will ensure that your piece is shiny at every wear.

 While showering and swimming with your sterling silver jewelry on won’t cause lasting damage, it is best to remove it beforehand.  It is also recommended to remove your jewelry before exercising as sweat can contribute to tarnish. If you forget, and keep it on, remember to rinse and dry your pieces properly afterward. If you wear lotions and/or perfumes, apply those first, let them dry, and then put on your jewelry. Avoid all harsh chemicals as these will also tarnish your jewelry.

It is recommended to clean your jewelry once or twice per year.  There are 3 easy ways you can do this:

1) Toothpaste - Rub your jewelry with white toothpaste under warm running water for 30- 90 seconds (depending on how dull, dirty or tarnished your pieces are). Rinse well and dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.

2) Baking soda - Make a paste using two parts baking soda and one part water. Rub your jewelry with the paste using your fingers, or a microfibre cloth, until you get the desired result. Rinse well and dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.

 3) Liquid dish soap and water -Simply rinse and dry the jewelry the same way you would wash your own hands.


  • Never use paper towels, napkins, toilet paper or facial tissues to dry your jewelry as these may scratch the metal. Use a soft cloth like a clean microfibre towel or a cotton cloth.
  • Remove your gold-filled jewelry before showering, swimming, using a hot tub or harsh chemicals. If you forget, make sure that you rinse and dry it thoroughly.
  • Do not shower, swim or exercise while wearing jewelry with stones, pearls, silk or wood in water as these will absorb the water/moisture and cause lasting damage.

Caring for your stretch bracelets:

Remember to roll your stretch bracelets on (avoid pulling them on) and avoid harsh chemicals that will compromise the elastic string. Finally, it's best to store your stretch bracelets in small zip sealed bags when you're not wearing them for extended periods.
