Jewels Emporio jewelry is handcrafted and is meant to last a lifetime with the right care. We suggest taking the following steps to take care of your jewelry.
If tarnish occurs the jewelry can be washed with a soft bristled brush and mild dish soap and warm water. Make sure the piece is thoroughly rinsed and dried completely with a microfiber cloth. It is important that the piece is completely dry before being worn or stored. Store your jewelry in a pouch or covered jewelry box located in a clean, dry place.
A polishing cloth can be used to clean the chains, but should not be used on pendants, rings, earrings, or bracelets. To clean the chain fold the polishing cloth over the chain and gently run the chain through while holding the cloth. Be very gentle and apply little pressure when doing so to prevent breaking the chain.
Moisture, lotion, perfume and perspiration can all lead to tarnishing and buildup on jewelry. Remove your jewelry before showering, swimming, using strong chemicals, applying lotions, makeup, or any other activities where the jewelry may be at risk of being damaged.
Pieces containing more delicate gems such as pearls, emeralds, tanzanites etc., should not be put in an ultrasonic or come in contact with any chemical cleaners. Diamonds, rubies, and sapphires are harder, more resilient stones and can be cleaned in an ultrasonic. We don't recommend the use of chemical cleaners on any jewelry.
Do not use silver dip, polish, or chemical cleaning solutions on any silver jewelry. This will remove any antiquing or enameling that is intentionally incorporated into the design.
