Tips to keep my jewels over time, as if they were just purchased. As for gold and platinum, you can use specific products on the market using great caution with regard to organic materials (pearls, corals, turquoise …) and limiting the duration of immersion. Bronze and silver oxidize when in contact with sulfur, chlorine, sweat, cosmetics and aggressive chemicals, even for domestic use. To avoid oxidation as much as possible, it is advisable not to wear jewels during housework, sports and cosmetic treatments and to keep them in dry places. To clean them we recommend a soft treated cloth or the use of a specific immersion or cream product. It will be a pleasure for me to take care of my jewelry, I’ll wait for you in the shop! Alternatively, you can contact me for advice or send it to the store at any time.
