Care Instructions

Please take good care of your uncommon matters jewelry, as it has been meticulously designed and hand-crafted with utmost care and attention to quality.

Storing / Wearing
Please handle your new jewelry gently, so as to maintain original form and not alter the shape or scratch the surfaces.

We strongly recommend familiarizing yourself with your jewelry before wearing. Because many pieces feature hinging components and other complex mechanisms, this is important and will help prevent breakages and will allow you to enjoy your new jewelry for years to come.

When not wearing or displaying, please store your uncommon matters jewelry individually (ideally in a velvet-lined box), and wrapped it in a soft material that will protect it from scratches, exposure to sunlight, and any water.

It is important that jewelry be kept far from perfumes, lotions, other chemicals, and out of humidity. This includes when wearing. A good rule of thumb for wearing your jewelry is “last on, first off.”

Cleaning
Please gently clean pieces after wearing, paying attention to not expose pieces to any chemicals, polishing compounds, included. These wear away at the plating. Polishing cloths are often treated with chemicals to boost shine, but these should also be avoided, as they can remove plating directly. Best is an untreated jewelry cloth for gold-plated pieces.

Silver pieces may tarnish with time, or if not stored properly. You can remove tarnishing with a standard silver jewelry cloth.

Powder-coated pieces can scratch if dropped or hit against other metal – the coating is not shock resistant, however, will not come off if cleaned with a jewelry cloth.

Stones do not scratch, hit, or drop these pieces, as the stones are fragile and may break with excessive force.

Should it become necessary, you may clean the jewelry further with warm water and mild washing detergent. Dry well with a soft cloth. This should be done only when really necessary and avoided, otherwise.
