To get the most out of your jewellery and to keep it looking beautiful please follow this list of care instructions:
Be sure to clean your sterling silver and gold jewellery with a jewellery cleaning cloth every 2-3 weeks. Cleaning clothes are available for purchase from this store or you get one free with every purchase over $50! These clothes are impregnated with a cleaning solution that helps to remove dirt and helps prevent the piece from tarnishing.
Silver jewellery (except for pearl pieces) may be worn while showering as soapy water can help keep jewellery clean and prevent it from tarnishing.
Please avoid contact with detergents and chemical substances (including lotions, creams and perfumes).
Please avoid contact with ocean water and swimming pools. Both salt water and chlorine can damage silver.
It is best to store your jewellery in a jewellery box, closed drawer or in a small bag to protect it from oxidising and prevent tarnishing.
If your jewellery has tarnished please contact us as we offer a cleaning service on any Andrea Estelle item.
Pearls are beautiful and organic and as such they require specialised care. It is very important that they are NEVER used in an ultrasonic device. Additionally, they are vulnerable to acid and alkaline as well as extremes in humidity and should never come into contact with cosmetics, hair spray, or perfume.
Always put your pearl jewellery on after you have applied cosmetics, hairspray and perfume, otherwise this can effect the pearl's lustre. After you have worn your pearls gently wipe them with a soft cloth before returning them to the jewellery box as perspiration can also effect their lustre.
