Care guide

The joy of new jewelry is something truly special!

All our jewelry is made to last a lifetime and be worn daily. We want to help you care for your jewelry in the best possible way and have therefor put together some useful tips for you


Gold and Platinum are relatively soft materials, they have a hardness of 2.5-3.5 on Mohs hardness scale. Even though they are very sturdy and hard for us they can sustain scratches through daily wear. This is normal and can be removed by a local jeweler.  

All textured metals will eventually become daintier on the most worn places of your jewelry. This is a natural part of the metals character as it wears down after long time use. We think this is a part of yours and your jewelry's journey together, however we offer to do a service and maintain the texture.

Remove your jewelry before engaging in practical activities, such as yard work, cleaning and exercising. Use your toiletries like hair creams and lotions on your hands and hair before putting on your jewelry. Avoid having your jewelry come in contact with oils and harsh chemicals. Harsh chemicals can such as household cleaners and chlorine can damage your jewelry. 

For dainty pieces, please keep in mind that these metals can still be bend out of shape, so wear them with care and remove your pieces when appropriate. 


Most of our jewelry is made for everyday wear. Gemstones like Diamonds, Sapphires and Rubys do not scratch easily. They are a good option for everyday wear jewelry but like precious metals, gemstones can also scratch and sometimes break if knocked or dropped in *just* the wrong way. Even diamonds can chip on a very unfortunate occasion. We recommend you check your jewelryevery 6-12 months, stone settings can move and loosen over time with regular wear. If you notice any any movement your jewel should be sent to us for inspection. 
To safely clean your gemstone jewelry, soak the piece in warm water and brush gently with a soft bristle toothbrush.
The best way to store your jewelry is in the box that you received it in. There it will be protected from scratches. You can also store it is in a closed jewelry box.
