How to take care of ceramic jewellery?
Your jewellery should be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off; not only will this help to keep it from snagging on your clothes or other accessories, but it will also help to keep your jewellery dry and away from perfumes, lotions, and other cosmetics. While most of our jewellery is water resistant, I advise removing your pieces before showering, bathing, exercising, or swimming to best preserve their quality. Repeated exposure to sweat, water, and moisture can speed up the tarnishing process and damage the plating of your jewellery.
How to wear jewellery?
Be gentle and caring. Earthenware and porcelain are with strong but delicate clay bodies. Please consider handling and wearing your ceramic pieces much the same as pearls, glass or gemstones. Try to avoid pulling, tugging, or yanking on your jewellery. Remember that the original colour of stainless steel is silver, so your jewellery pieces may become more silver after a few months. Still, I’m not responsible for shocks, scratches, chemical products, or natural skin acidity.
Essential oils, lotions, perfumes
Handling the earthenware or porcelain portion after applying hand lotion or touching oils could cause discolouration of the jewellery, so please be careful. Essential oils can certainly be applied to the backs of earthenware or porcelain, where the natural colour of the oil will not ruin the artistic design on the front.
What’s the best way to clean the jewellery?
Please avoid using harsh DIY cleaners like toothpaste or Coca-Cola! In the long run, these abrasive methods will do more harm than good to your pieces. Instead, use a jewellery cleaning cloth or, when necessary, mild soap, warm water, and a soft cloth. Don’t submerge your jewellery in the water - wet the cloth and gently wipe the piece down. Be sure to dry your jewellery thoroughly after cleaning.
What’s the best way to store my jewellery?
When storing our jewellery, please be mindful that the glaze could become scratched by sharp objects. Consider storing our jewellery in zippered-styled bags and keeping it away from oxygen and moisture, which can, with all metals, cause tarnishing and wear.
