Care Guide

What is Zamak ? 

 Zamak is a family of alloys with a base metal of zinc and alloying elements of aluminium, magnesium, and copper.

How do I clean it ?: Wet a cloth or non-abrasive pad in the vinegar-water mixture and then use it to clean the Zamac surface gently.

 

What is Brass ?

Brass is similar to bronze, another alloy containing copper that uses tin in place of zinc

How do I clean it ?: Mix lemon juice and baking soda into a paste, rub onto surface with a cloth, then gently rinse off and buff dry to a shine.  

 

What is Rhodium ?

Rhodium is an ultra-rare, silvery-white, hard, corrosion-resistant, and chemically inert transition metal

How do I clean it ?: Clean rhodium plated silver with warm water and a mild liquid soap (like ivory dishwashing soap). Rinse and dry with a soft polishing cloth immediately to avoid mineral residue from the water. Never use any chemicals on your rhodium jewelry. Never use toothpaste and never brush with a toothbrush.

 

What is STAINLESS STEEL ?

The health benefit is it's hypoallergenic. This is a great choice for all those who have sensitive skin to certain metals.

This will not turn your skin green or any other color. Unlike many other metals, these are safe to wear and no harm will come if you wear stainless steel for life.

Stainless steel does not fade. It's durable and near scratch proof. Stainless steel shines just like real silver or gold.

 

What is TIN ?

Tin is a soft, malleable, ductile and highly crystalline silvery-white metal.

Tin will naturally darken over time, and to keep it looking its best we recommend using warm soapy water (washing-up liquid is ideal) and buffing with a soft cloth. Being a fairly soft metal, it is important that tin is cleaned carefully and gently to avoid scratching or warping.

 How do I clean it ? : Buff dry with a clean cloth.

How do I care for my jewelry ?

Moisture will tarnish your jewelry. Avoid all water, lotions, and perfumes. Clean with a dry cloth. Never use jewelry cleaner or polishing cloths. Preserve your jewelry’s plating properties by avoiding contact with cleaning agents, beauty products, water and chemicals. Remove jewelry prior to exercise or swimming. Clean your jewelry with a dry cotton cloth to renew its shine.

Remove jewelry when washing your body, swimming, exercising, or cleaning. Avoid contact with soaps, perfume, lotion, makeup, hair, and cleaning products. Stones are fragile and can break, crack, or scratch if not handled with care. Avoid extreme heat.

Do not use products like tissue paper or paper towels, as they can cause scratching.
