Our jewelry is extremely well crafted and if cared for properly can be enjoyed for generations. Air pollutants, dust, perspiration, perfumes and other natural elements can dull the appearance of gemstones or precious metals.
We recommend that once a year, your jewelry should be professionally cleaned and inspected. Periodic inspection and maintenance of jewelry helps prevent costly repairs or replacements. Personally inspect your jewelry as you wear it by looking for loose or chipped stones, worn links, bent prongs, or malfunctioning clasps.
If a problem is found, the piece should be brought in immediately for repair to prevent more extensive damage or loss.
Sterling silver tarnishes in the presence of common everyday items that contain sulfur, such as leather, rubber, chlorine, and perspiration. Other elements to be mindful of are air pollutants and salt water. Because these substances cannot be completely avoided, it is recommended that sterling silver be routinely wiped down with a cloth. Regular wear of your sterling silver jewelry can also help prevent tarnishing-we recommend that you enjoy and wear your silver jewelry every day. When not in use, store your jewelry in a separate pouch.
Gold plated Jewelry
Our jewelry is plated using 3 layers of 18-karat gold to provide the highest quality of finish product. All plated jewelry do loose a bit of its color over time. However, with proper care your pièces uniques will remain beautiful for years to come. To extend the life of your gold plated jewelry, remove your jewelry before bathing, swimming or exercising. Wear them after applying perfume, hairspray and make up. Store them in a soft pouch separate from other jewelry. Clean your plated jewelry gently, don’t rub it.
Pièces Uniques offer a re-plating service for all of our products. If you would like to have your piece cleaned or re-plated please send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org
Pearls require proper care to retain their beauty and luster. They should be kept away from perfumes, cosmetics, perspiration, chlorine, vinegar, ammonia, and oil. We recommend you put them on last, after hair products and perfume. Pearls should be removed before exercising to protect them from perspiration. After wearing, gently wipe them with a slightly damp cloth.
Wash pearls periodically with a soft cloth. Rinse pearls in clean water and wrap them in a thin, damp cotton towel to dry.
To prevent scratches, pearls should be stored away from other objects in a storage pouch. However, do not store them in an airtight package such as a plastic bag. Opals and pearls require humidity. When storing them, make sure the environment is not too dry or they may crack.
