Silver and Vermeil Jewelry Care
Silver is a malleable metal that will adapt to your shape and will take on a patina over the years.
Your jewelry is in direct contact with your skin, with your clothes, but also with pollution and humidity. It is therefore important to take good care of your jewellery and to respect our care advice in order to keep it as long as possible:
- Avoid contact with chemicals and corrosive products.
- Remove your jewelry while you're doing your chores.
- Remember to remove your jewellery before any sporting activity to keep it looking good and to prevent it from clashing.
- Remove your jewellery before you go to bed so that your jewellery doesn't get caught on your movements at night.
- Keep your jewellery in its original box to avoid colliding with other objects.
- Only use your chamois to clean your jewellery and use soapy water.
- Avoid folding and unfolding your bangles too much. Repeatedly extending your jewellery makes it fragile.
- Avoid all contact with water, remove your jewellery before a shower, or while swimming.
Care of gold jewellery with precious stones
Did you just buy a piece of gold jewelry? Then it's time to take an interest in its maintenance!
Yeah, that's probably something we don't necessarily pay attention to. We wear our jewelry every day without necessarily caring about its maintenance. A gold jewel remains a valuable object for which it too needs attention. We tend to forget sometimes to take off our gold rings before washing our hands, sleeping, and many other situations that can dirty and tarnish your ring. Most of our rings are adorned with precious stones and here again you need to be more careful about their care and maintenance.
Wearing jewellery on a daily basis follows you everywhere in your every move, which is why it is necessary to follow our care advice to ensure the longevity of your jewellery.
Don't worry, if you see traces of wear and tear despite regular maintenance, it is perfectly normal. To eliminate the wear of the metal on your ring, a polishing at a jeweller's will suffice to restore it to a like-new condition and absolute brilliance. It is advisable to do this every 3 to 5 years.

White gold 18 karats for example, composed of 75% yellow gold and 25% silver, platinum or nickel must then be coated with a layer of rhodium. This precious metal, on the one hand gives it a white colour but also allows you to be the "protective guardian" of your jewel.
This layer of rhodium fades from year to year, and tends to become yellowish, which is why it is advisable to go to a jeweller's to apply a layer of rhodium on your white gold jewelry.

Dishwashing liquid (no chemical or corrosive products) or Marseille soap.
A container of warm water
A container of cold water
A microfiber cloth, paper towel or chamois.

The first step is to dust off your stone(s) in every nook and cranny. Remove any small dirt or even cream residue that may have gotten lodged in the setting of your stone(s). A simple soft bristle toothbrush will do the trick, but be careful, it is advisable to do it delicately.
For the second step: In your first container, mix a little dishwashing liquid or Marseille soap with warm water.
Step 3: Place your ring inside and leave it to soak for about 10 minutes. This step will remove the last few residues or impurities that you could not remove with your toothbrush.
