Everyday care and cleaning for our gold filled chain:
Warm water and a soft cloth are the best thing you can do to maintain the beauty of your jewelry
For a deeper, occasional cleaning, a drop of soap will return its luster. When you have finished cleaning make sure that you have dried you items properly using a clean and dry flannel cloth.
Salt water and chlorine in swimming pools take their toll on all fine jewelry
Many chemicals marketed for cleaning jewelry are actually somewhat abrasive and corrosive and can cause damage or color alteration to your jewellery
