Jewelry Care Recommendations
Our jewelry is made with great care and is exceptional in quality. Whether worn daily or occasionally - precious pieces require special attention to preserve their shine over the years. We suggest reading the following care instructions and recommendations.
PRECAUTIONS FOR USE
The more you wear your Her Children jewelry, the less maintenance is required. This may seem paradoxical, however, regular use slows the natural tarnishing process inherit of both gold and silver metals. Your jewelry will gain a unique patina over time - and will become the signature of your shared history.
Avoid unpleasant encounters
To slow down the natural oxidation effect, avoid exposing your jewelry to moisture, intense heat, and extreme temperatures.
To preserve the appearance of your jewelry, protect it from corrosive and chemical products, such as salt, water or bleach.
If it does come into contact with one of these products, carefully rinse your jewelry with clear water and dry it with a soft cloth.
While not being worn, jewelry should be stored in its original box or in an individual pouch for protection from humidity and other intense temperatures.
Restoring its original shine
Sterling silver, and even gold, tends to oxidize naturally over time. There are different ways to restore these metals to their full brilliance.
Care instructions depend on the condition of your jewelry:
- -If your silver jewelry is dusty or shows fingerprints, rub it gently with a soft cloth or a silk cloth.
- -If your jewelry is tarnished or slightly oxidized, clean it with clear, warm water, and rub it gently with a soft cloth. Avoid circular movements, rub in the same direction instead. Dry it gently with a soft cloth or a jewelry cleaning cloth.
- -If your jewelry is extremely tarnished, you can use a dip cleaner made especially for jewelry. Soak the jewelry in the liquid for a maximum of 10 seconds, rinse it thoroughly in warm, clear water and dry it well with a soft cloth.
For diamond jewelry
To maintain all the brilliance of diamonds, clean them with warm, clear water, gently rub with a soft brush, and then wipe them with a soft cloth.
What should I do if my jewelry is damaged?
If, despite your precautions, your jewelry is damaged (malfunction of the clasp, wear and tear of the links or setting), we invite you to take it in to a Her Children store where a personalized, expert appraisal will be carried out and a repair suggestion will be made.
