Care Instructions

Materials used in all KLOSSEY JEWELRY pieces are carefully selected to ensure the best quality possible. Here are a few recommendations to make sure that your jewelry lasts forever.

STERLING SILVER

With proper care, your fine quality silver will last a lifetime. To minimize scratches store your silver jewelry either in a cloth pouch or in a separate compartment in your jewelry box. Avoid exposing your silver to household chemicals (such as bleach or ammonia) or chlorinated water when swimming, as these chemicals can damage silver.

Care should also be taken to prevent silver tarnish build-up, a dulling that naturally occurs when silver reacts with sulfur or hydrogen sulfide in the ambient air. To clean your silver, use polishes formulated specifically to remove tarnish which is most easily removed when it first becomes visible. Although wearing your silver jewelry often is the best way to prevent tarnish from building up, regular cleanings of all your silver items will prevent tarnish and keep your silver bright and sparkling.

Oxidation - it disappears with time. This is considered normal wear and tear and is not a defect. Things which may cause the oxidation to fade include perspiration, chlorine, perfumes, cleaning agents, and silver polish. Oxidized (dark) jewelry does not benefit from being cleaned with silver polishing liquid, as it destroys the oxidation. Using warm water with a bit of dishwashing liquid until any visible dirt or residue on your silver is softened and then drying it with a soft cloth will be best.

GOLD

Since gold is a natural element, it is affected by harsh chemicals such as chlorine or other cleaning products. We recommend removing your jewelry when using chemicals to reduce daily abrasions and prolong the luster. To clean gold jewelry, use a solution of warm water and detergent-free soap with a soft-bristled brush. When not worn, store your gold pieces in soft cloth bags or the original box to protect them from the elements of daily exposure.

Gold plated jewelry is very popular with fashionistas because of its practicality and because it’s available in various designs and styles. As it is a thin layer of gold, extra care should be taken to maximize its lifespan.

  • Substances like oil, nail polish, nail polish remover, chlorine, perfume, lotion and the like may react with gold plated jewelry and will cause it to tarnish easily. This also true when it comes to sweat as well as swimming.
  • Every after use, clean your gold plated jewelry with a very soft cloth to remove any dust and dirt; gently rubbing the surface also helps restore shine.
  • If your jewelry needs more cleaning, you may soak it in warm, soapy water for a few minutes and then clean it with a soft brush. Jewelry cleaners and antibacterial soaps may have certain ingredients which might make your gold plated jewelry tarnish more quickly.
  • To avoid scratches, wrap your jewelry in a soft cloth after cleaning or keep it in a jewelry box separate from other types of jewelry you own.

LEATHER

Leather can stretch and relax over time and so it is not considered a defect. As a natural feature of genuine leather, you may notice gentle shading and variations in color as well as experience a change in the shade of the leather due to oils in the skin. Our leather bracelets should never be worn in or exposed to water nor come into contact with other liquids, chemicals, aerosols and such. Doing so will not only lead to discoloration but also damage the leather. If the leather or stones/metal on your bracelet need cleaning, simply spot clean where needed with a damp cloth.

NATURAL SILK

While the silk’s color is safe, we do recommend you rinse with cold water after being submerged into salty water or chlorine. Avoid contact with perfume or any alcohol substances.
