GLAM N' GEMS provides handcrafted personalized jewelry made from genuine materials, including sterling silver and 18k gold plating. As with precious sterling silver, gold-plated jewelry also requires care and attention. Here are easy ways of keeping the luster of your jewelry and maximize its lifespan;
- Exposure to certain harsh chemicals, cosmetics or environments can cause your jewelry to tarnish or rub off. This includes, but is not limited to the following: lotions, creams, Hairspray, cosmetics, perfumes, cleaning agents, oil, nail polish, nail polish remover, chlorine, pools, Jacuzzis, salt water and perspiration. We strongly recommend avoiding direct contact with water and chemical products by taking your jewelry off or wait until your lotion or cream is dry or has been absorbed by your skin before wearing your jewelry.
- To avoid scratches and oxygen reaction, keep your jewelry in a jewelry box separate from other types of jewelry you have. Wrapping your jewelry in a soft cloth or tarnish-resistant pouch is also a great solution. Chains should be closed and laid flat so as to avoid their becoming tangled.
- To remove any dirt, fingerprints or oils, clean your jewelry with a soft cleaning cloth or cotton ball every after use, so that they are preserved as long as possible. Your jewelry should be cleaned regularly.
- To restore shine, use warm soapy water. Simply Pour a small amount of mild soap into lukewarm water and let your jewelry soak in it for 5 to 10 minutes. Then rinse your jewelry with clean water and pat dry with a soft cloth. Using a tumbler, ultrasonic, silver polishing liquids and antibacterial soaps are not recommended.
