Jewelry Care and Cleaning

All of our Artisan Jewelry is crafted with 925 Sterling Silver, Copper and/or Red Brass wire, using only all natural gemstones, (unless otherwise stated on label). Each piece is one-of-a-kind using precious & semi-precious gemstones. The gems are from many places across the world & are obtained from experienced, quality lapidaries that use incredible quality control, choosing the best pattern/color combinations for each stone. Diamond polishing gives the gemstone a mirror-like gloss. Sterling Silver, Copper and/or Red Brass wire is then draped over the stone. Additional precious gems, such as Amethyst, Pearls, Sapphires and many more, are often added.

Cleaning your Wire Wrapped Jewelry

Sterling Silver is a metal alloy containing 92.5% Silver and 7.5% Copper. The Copper is 99.9% pure. The Red Brass is an alloy of 85% Copper and 15% Zinc. Tarnish is common, occurring when the copper reacts to chemicals in the atmosphere. With proper care your silver, copper and red brass wrapped jewelry can easily last a lifetime and can be worn often with minimal cleaning required.

Use warm, soapy water and a VERY soft toothbrush. Rinse thoroughly. Use a 100% cotton cloth that won't leave fuzz or threads behind to completely dry & buff your jewelry once it is cleaned or use a jeweler's cloth made specifically for that purpose.

Wearing your Sterling Silver jewelry regularly, your bodies oils will help keep the tarnish down & the need for cleaning to a minimum. Avoid exposing your jewelry to scratching, banging, any chemicals, swimming pools, hot tubs, extreme temperatures, strenuous activity and intense sunlight.

We use Wright's Silver Cream to clean all of our wrapped jewelry.
