Jewelry Care

How to care for your precious EWL pieces?

We understand how sentimental our jewelry pieces are for our clients, that's why it's important to take good care of them.
Caring for our jewelry is simple, as the metals used for handcrafted jewelry do not easily tarnish. If the item becomes dirty or tarnishes in some way, clean it using plain soap and water, and then dry with a soft cloth. Before storing the item, make sure it's fully dry and is not stored in a moist environment. When storing, avoid storing it mixed among other jewelry, as the tarnish on those pieces may spread and damage the item. While wearing, avoid exposure to chemicals (including cleaning agents), and avoid wearing in environments where the item may be knocked.

It's important to mention that it's completely fine to get our handcrafted jewelry wet! You can wear it in the shower or while swimming; simply make sure to dry it afterwards!

Our factory produced sterling silver jewelry will last a lifetime with proper care. To minimize scratches and other damage, store your silver jewelry either in a cloth pouch or in a separate compartment in your jewelry box. Avoid exposing your silver to household chemicals when cleaning with bleach or ammonia, or when swimming in chlorinated water, as these chemicals can damage silver.

We remind you that silver jewelry is prone to tarnish, therefore care should be taken to prevent tarnish build-up, a dulling that naturally occurs when silver reacts with sulfur or hydrogen sulfide in the ambient air. To clean your silver, use polishes formulated specifically to remove tarnish. You can find fine silver polishes, solutions, or cloths appropriate to remove tarnish at most hardware stores or specialty craft stores. Tarnish is most easily removed when it first becomes visible. Although wearing your silver jewelry often is the best way to prevent tarnish from building up, regular cleanings of all your silver items will prevent tarnish and keep your silver bright and sparkling.

We recommend that you remove your gold jewelry when using chemicals to reduce daily abrasions and prolong the luster. Since gold is a natural element, it is affected by harsh chemicals such as chlorine or other cleaning products. When cleaning gold jewelry, we suggest that you use a solution of warm water and detergent-free soap with a soft-bristled brush. When not worn, store your gold pieces in soft cloth bags or the original box to protect them from the elements of daily exposure.

And that's it. With proper care, your EWL pieces of jewelry will last you a lifetime, just like your most memorable memories.
