HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR JEWELRY 101
JEWELRY NEEDS TLC! Please take care of your pieces!
Here are the basic rules for caring for your jewelry properly:
DO NOT wear your jewelry in the shower, while you work out, or while you sleep! If you choose to do these things while wearing your necklace be prepared to see color changing on anything that is gold or silver plated. (Acrylic will never tarnish as it is not metal, but the mirrored backing can be damaged by excessive exposure to water, sweat and rubbing)
DO NOT spray perfume directly on your chest while wearing your necklace! This may accelerate the wearing of the metal finishes.
DO NOT throw jewelry loose in your bag or purse! Acrylic pieces often break when they are tossed into a purse, and metal will scratch. If you have to do it, make sure it is in a separate pocket away from other things that could scratch or crush it.
Hang up your jewelry or store it in its HANNAHROSES box when it is not in use. Store your HANNAHROSESluxe metal pieces in the included velvet baggie! If you see scratches or fingerprints, use your polishing cloth to buff the finish back to a smooth sheen. When traveling always bring your box along to store the jewelry and prevent it from breaking in your suitcase.
HANNAHROSES Acrylic Line
Acrylic is a very lightweight type of plastic. The gold and silver mirrored acrylic I use has a mirror backing that can scratch or chip if not properly cared for. Acrylic pieces will break if you apply too much pressure to them. Putting them in any sort of purse, backpack, or bag unprotected will eventually result in breakage. Please store them in their box!
I plate my necklaces with thick high quality gold and silver that should last a very long time if properly cared for. Gold does not tarnish, but plated items wear with time, it is inevitable unless you purchase a solid gold necklace. Silver will tarnish but can be easily shined back with the included jewelry polishing cloth. The gold and silver filled chains used for Luxe necklaces will also last a very long time without showing wear, but they are very dainty and delicate, and must be handled with care! You will significantly extend the life of your necklace by following the rules above.
