• To keep your gold or rhodium plated jewelry as shiny as possible, we advise you to avoid contact with water, sweat, perfumes, lotions or cosmetics. 
  • We recommend to remove your jewelry if you go swimming, before taking a shower or exercise, as it will tarnish the metals over time. 
  • Some of our items have e-coating over either gold or rhodium plating. If proper care is taken, this will ensure longer lasting plating than some of our items that do not have the e-coating. Please carefully read the items description page to see if your item is e-coated.
  • None of the plated or e-coated jewelry should be polished with abrasive or chemically treated jewelry cloths or liquids. Only wipe your jewelry clean with a soft untreated cotton cloth, before storing it on your pouch and box, away from direct sun, heat or humidity.


  • To keep your pearls, shells and gemstones clean, apply a small amount of gentle liquid soap diluted in water to a wet cloth, and wipe them clean carefully. Please do not allow the gold or rhodium plated metal parts come into contact with soap or water.
  • Because pearls, shells and gemstones are natural materials, they are fragile and prone to cracking or breaking if mistreated. Please handle them with care and store them individually in your jewelry pouch and box, away from direct sun, heat or humidity. 


  • NOTE: As of 2023, we no longer sell only Brass jewelry, all jewelry brass base metals, now are gold or rhodium plated, and some of them have an additional e-coating over plating to ensure longevity and prevent any tarnishing up to 1-2 years.
  • Brass jewelry can develop a brown or greenish hue over time, especially when exposed to oxygen, sweat, skin oils, or any chemicals. Tarnish is a common issue with brass jewelry, as the copper component of the alloy reacts with air and moisture to form a layer of oxidation. This layer can make your jewelry look dull and dark, which indicates it's time for cleaning.
  • Cleaning your jewelry can help remove this discoloration and restore its original color. There are several ways to clean the brass, here are of our favorite ways:
  1.Washing your brass jewelry with soap and water should be the first step in removing dirt. Gently scrub the jewelry with a soft toothbrush and mild dish soap, then rinse thoroughly with clean water, and dry immediately with a paper towel.
  2. Cleaning brass jewelry with vinegar can brighten it up. After washing, drop it into a solution of equal parts water and white vinegar for 30 seconds. Rinse with clean water and dry.
