Jewelry care & materials
Chosen for its strength and beauty, sterling silver can give you a lifetime of gleam, or cultivate a lovely patina all on its own.
- Avoid exposing your sterling silver piece to chlorinated water and to cleaning products that contain bleach.
- Use a soft cloth to clean your silver piece.
GOLD PLATED STERLING SILVER
Our pure gold plating is always of the highest posible karats. You will see we specify the gold karats in each item, the highest the karats (18K jewelry) the richer the gold colour.
Your gold-plated pieces will shine for longer with the right care and attention.
- Plated pieces can be prone to wear, and eventually loose the gold plating, brightness or darken so we recommend removing before you swim, shower, or apply lotion, makeup, or perfume. All these actions can produce abrasion to your pieces.
- Gently rub your gold-plated jewelry with a soft jewelry cloth to restore its shine.
- After every use, clean your jewelry with a cotton ball or a very soft cloth to remove any dust and dirt.
WITH ANY JEWEL
- To minimize scratches, store your piece in your NILA BLISS bag or in a separate compartment in your jewelry box.
- Try to keep chains fastened and lay them out flat, to avoid knots forming.
- Check regularly that all fastenings are working properly. It is also a good idea to regularly check gem settings, to make sure your gems are all properly enchased, in order to prevent the fall and loss.
- Do not expose your jewelry to sharp temperature changes, otherwise gems, in particular, can change color. Jewelry should always be kept away from places subjects to excessive humidity such as a bathroom, and always away from any continued sun exposure.
- Gems can deteriorate as a result of being in contact with chemical substances, like creams, alcohol, perfumes and detergents. Organic gems, like pearls, are more delicate than other precious stones with regard to certain chemical agents, therefore you should always keep them away from soap, perfume, creams and detergents. This type of precious stone can also become dehydrated, so it is best to avoid exposing it to direct heat, such as lights and radiators.
