- Clean all metal parts of your jewelry from time to time with isopropyl/rubbing alcohol (not water) and wipe dry right after.
- Store your jewelry in a ziplock bag or any airtight container, away from the sun, to reduce the amount of exposure to oxygen and moisture. If you can acquire silica gel packets (which can be found in certain food packages) and place them into the ziplock bag or container that would be ideal.
- Do not get any hair products, perfume, water, etc. on your jewelry.
This will prolong the lifespan/shine of them so it's pretty important! Applies to most jewelry in general.
For polymer clay earrings (e.g. pools, Hakus):
- Although polymer clay is durable and flexible to some extent, please avoid bending it a lot or storing it in places like your bags, filled drawers, etc. because this might cause them to break. Especially if your earrings have thinner components!
- Store all polymer clay earrings by hanging them or placing them in boxes or any place where they run no risk of being bent or squashed accidentally.
- If your earrings are of a lighter color, it is normal that there may be stains on the clay over time after wearing them, especially if you wear makeup!
- If your clay earrings are stained, simply use a soft cloth or cotton buds and wipe over that area gently with isopropyl/rubbing alcohol. If this doesn’t remove the stain entirely, you may use a bit of acetone or nail polish remover too. But be extra careful if you choose to use acetone or nail polish remover because it may damage the clay surface if you’re not gentle with it.
P.S. All Sincerely, Cherise jewelry purchased containing 925 silver or 14k gold-filled hooks/studs/ring bases will come with a polishing cloth so you can use it to clean your jewelry as well
