Handcrafted Fine Unique Contemporary Jewelry
Maintain the beauty of your Jewelry by taking the appropriate care.
Gold - Jewelry that is designed with 14k Gold or higher can easily be cleaned with warm soapy water and a soft cloth. Most Golds will do fine in an Ultrasonic bath; however, use caution with these machines. Many gemstones are not recommended for an Ultrasonic machine.
Argentium Silver - Argentium Silver is purer than traditional Sterling Silver with 93.5% fine silver. Argentium is low maintenance silver. Simply wipe away any dust or finger marks with a soft cloth or, for more intricate pieces, wash in warm soapy water, rinse and dry immediately. An occasional wipe with a clean silver polishing cloth will help to maintain Argentium Silver’s beautiful shine and lustre. Never use Silver or Tarnish Dip cleansers on Argentium.
Keum-Boo Jewelry - Keum-Boo is a gilding process where a thin layer of gold is applied to a fine silver surface. Keum-Boo jewelry should not be put in an Ultrasonic cleaner. The best cleaning application is by using luke warm soapy water and a soft toothbrush. Be careful not to scrub to hard and make sure to rinse well. Hot water should not be used. A special polishing cloth made specifically for Keum Boo is also a good alternative if the piece has become very dirty. Do not dip in chemical tarnish removers.
