Castafiore's maintenance tips
Jewelry is delicate and precious pieces and must be treated with the greatest care. Old jewelry is often more fragile, due to its finesse; they sometimes require more care and attention than new jewelry. Also, certain jewelry such as rings and bracelets are more subject to shock and friction and therefore deserve a little more precaution.
We recommend cleaning your gold and silver jewelry at the end of the day, using a soft cloth to remove any fingerprints and grease that may build up. A chamois is ideal for this. Once a week, we recommend a deeper cleaning: use half a cup of lukewarm water with a few drops of liquid soap, and soak your jewelry for three minutes. Rinse thoroughly with clean water and dry carefully.
Think about protecting
It is recommended to remove your rings when washing your hands, as some metals are sensitive to moisture.
It's best to put on your jewelry once you're prepared and perfumed, as the alcohol in your perfume can oxidize it. It will lose its shine!
Keep the shine
Remember to remove your jewelry before handling household products, as some products may contain chemical substances and dull the shine of your jewelry.
Remember to store your jewelry in separate pouches to avoid contact and scratches as much as possible.
During the day, don't forget to take them off to sleep and if you practice an activity such as: sports, gardening or DIY. Indeed, acidity due to perspiration can damage your jewelry.
Avoid water and sand
The beach or the swimming pool are not recommended for your jewelry: the friction of the sand mattifies the surface of the jewelry and the highly chlorinated water can oxidize the metal.
