Jewelry Care Guide
A little love and care will go a long way will help ensure your jewellery keeps it's sparkle!
Precious metals can tarnish or darken when exposed to air and light over periods of time, and in some cases by your skin's PH. Limit exposure to air, humidity and sunlight when not wearing.
Joie Designs jewellery is 925 sterling silver and comes plated rhodium, fine silver to prevent tarnish or 18k gold for additional colour and style options.
Gold-plated sterling silver is known as vermeil, it is an affordable alternative to solid gold, costs only about 5% of the same solid 18k gold piece, and does require a little extra care
The following care guidelines will help keep all your jewelry looking its best for many years to come:
♥ Your jewellery should be removed when: Sleeping, bathing, swimming, applying lotions, creams, hairspray and perfumes or when using cleaning products.
♥ Remove tarnish from silver jewellery using a soft jewellery cleaning cloth specifically for silver (we sell these online).
♥ Gold-plating does not handle rough exposure well and can fade and tarnish over time, please handle with extra care.
♥ Mild soap and water is best for cleaning gold-plated jewelry and for removing fingerprints/oils.
♥The provided bag or our Joie chamois (best for gold plating) can be used to dry your jewellery or gently wipe jewellery after wearing.
♥ Always store jewellery completely dry, store separately in the supplied bag in a dry environment such as a bedroom drawer. Do not store in bathroom!
Nurturing the Beauty of Resin Jewelry
What to Avoid
♥ UV Rays: Although my pieces are crafted with high-quality jewelry resin, they may still be affected by prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. While natural sunlight may showcase your jewelry's brilliance, it's best to avoid leaving it exposed to the sun for extended periods.
♥ Extreme Heat: Resin can expand under high temperatures, potentially causing detachment from the metal settings. Protect your jewelry by avoiding exposure to heat sources like hairdryers, jacuzzis, or direct lighting.
♥ Temperature: Avoid exposing your jewelry to extreme heat or cold, as resin can become brittle in very low temperatures and may soften in high heat. Maintaining a moderate temperature environment will help preserve your jewelry.
♥ Sharp or Abrasive Objects: To prevent scratches on the resin surface, take care to avoid contact with sharp or abrasive items, including other jewelry pieces, keys, or hard surfaces. Remove your jewelry before engaging in activities that could pose a risk.
♥ Fragrances & Harsh Chemicals: The chemicals found in lotions, perfumes, shampoos, and soaps can dull or discolor the resin. Apply these products before wearing your jewelry or after removing it. Be especially cautious around aggressive substances such as cigarette smoke, cleaning agents, and alcohol-based products.
I've poured my heart into ensuring that each piece is a work of art. While I take every measure to avoid discoloration, scratching, and tarnishing, it's up to you to see to its care once it's in your hands.
