Product Care

Every piece of aeliosdesign's artisan jewellery is hand-crafted, paying special attention to detail. Each piece is unique and delicate. Please use the appropriate care and you will enjoy your new aeliosdesign jewellery for a long time to come.

General Care
After each use, gently wipe your jewellery with a soft cloth and store it in a jewellery box or pouch.
Please avoid direct contact with water and chemicals such as chlorine, perfume, detergent or lotion; these may damage or stain your jewellery.

The metal may darken or tarnish with normal wear. I recommend gently wiping the metal surface with a soft polishing cloth. Excessive light, heat or moisture will deteriorate the quality of the plating on the metal. Exposing your jewellery to water will cause the paint seal to disintegrate or peel off. 

Sterling Silver .925
Sterling silver jewellery may also darken or tarnish with normal wear and exposure to the elements. I recommend gently wiping the metal with a soft polishing cloth to bring back the natural shine. You may use ultrasonic cleaners and non-abrasive polishes, but be sure to avoid polishing abrasives as these may ruin the finish of the metal and may leave scratches. Be careful to read the instructions on any commercially available cleaners.

Gem Stones
Special care should be given to gem stone jewellery. Always avoid contact with household chemicals and cleaners, and never expose gemstones to hot solutions, abrasive polishes or ultrasonic cleaners. Also be very careful not to expose them to perfume or other body care products. Gemstones may be cleaned with a non-abrasive jewellery cleaner, but I recommend simply using a soft polishing cloth to brighten your gemstone jewellery.

Fresh Water Pearls
Pearls are the most delicate, and require special care. Your pearls should be the last thing you put on before you leave home as to avoid contact with perfumes and cosmetics. You should never use abrasive cleaners or polishes. It is best to use a soft polishing cloth after you wear your pearls, and be sure to store them separately from other jewellery. It is important that pearls are not in an air tight container, make sure to allow some air circulation. A soft pouch works best for storage and also protects them from being scratched by other jewellery. If it is necessary, you may use a very small amount of mild soap mixed with room temperature water to gently wipe your pearls. Be sure to allow them to fully dry before storing them.
