Every piece of bling at GMT Jewelry is made and chosen with love, and we believed it is picked by you with love too. As with all things special, we'r pretty sure you want to keep good care of them.
So let us provide some tips on caring for your jewelry.
BE CAREFUL WITH LIGHT AND HEAT
Precious gemstones are just like our skin, the sun’s harmful rays can damage and affect its durability and color, such as amethyst, kunzite, topaz and shell cameos. Pearls and other delicate materials, such as ivory, will bleach under extreme exposure to light.
And remember, not only the heat of the sun, hot tubs can be harmful for some gems too.
KEEP YOUR JEWELRY AWAY FROM CHEMICALS
We would recommend to remove your jewelry before showering, swimming and using household cleaniers. Because there's chemicals contains in everyday substances like hairspray, lotion, dishwasher, some gardening products etc. Exposure to these chemicals can damage or discolor precious metals – gold, silver and platinum – and may harm the surface of some gems.
MAINTENANCE OF JEWELRY
- Solid .925 Sterling Silver
It's best to store your silver jewelry in a cool, dark and dry place.
As mentioned above, exposure to chemicals can cause the silver to tarnish. So please take it off before swimming, showering, working out, cleaning or applying any lotions or perfumes.
If your didn't do that before and it's already begin to tarnish, DONT' WORRY, simply use a polishing cloth, and it will shine just as before.
- Gold, Rose Gold, Silver and Platinum Plated Jewelry
Plated jewelry has a thin layer of precious metal over a base metal, since the precious metal layer is very thin, friction between your skin and the plated jewelry can slowly rub off the plating.
Most our pieces have solid 925 sterling silver, premium zinc alloy or stainless steel as a base metal due to it's durability and higher quality plating.
Please store your plated jewelry in a cool, dark and dry place and keep it away from the exposure of chemicals.
CLEANING OF JEWELRY
Might be simpler than you think.
Most colored gems can be cleaned just with warm water, mild dish soap (no detergents) and a soft brush.
The only thing you need to pay attention is not to rinse it away if you rinse direct in the sink.
