Care Instructions

Every piece of Sasha Grace Designs jewelry is made with care from precious metals and natural gemstones. Following are care instructions for your jewelry. 
  • Always protect your jewelry from sharp blows, scratching, chemicals, sunlight and heat/cold.
  • Store your jewelry in a soft lined box or pouch with an anti-tarnish strip. Try to keep pieces apart so they don't rub together.
  • Your jewelry will age and tarnish naturally so if you want to keep your pieces in pristine condition, clean your jewelry regularly, using a professional jewelry cleaning product. Always read the manufacturers instructions.
  • Be aware of tarnish which may occur as a result of oxidization, caused by the interaction of silver or gold plated jewelry with certain elements such as oxygen or sulfur as well as with certain acids.
  • Never go swimming wearing your jewelry, as chlorine in swimming pools can cause damage to all metals and will erode gold jewelry.
  • Do not shower or bathe in your jewelry.  
  • Avoid using perfumes or lotions on the direct surface.
  • Avoid wearing while cleaning, gardening or performing sports activities.

STERLING SILVER

Keep silver jewelry away from harsh chemicals like household cleaning fluids as they create abrasions and reduce the luster of the metal. Cleaning silver jewelry is best done with a professional jewelry cleaning product. Thoroughly dry your silver jewelry after exposure to water.


GOLD

Keep gold jewelry away from harsh chemicals like household cleaning fluids as they create abrasions and reduce the luster of the metal. Cleaning gold jewelry is best done with warm water and detergent-free soap. Thoroughly dry your jewelry after exposure to water.


GOLD PLATED

Do not let your jewelry come into contact with nail polish removers, perfume or hairspray. Do not wear gold plated jewelry on a day to day basis, that way you will enjoy them for much longer. Frequently clean in a mild dishwashing liquid diluted in water. Use of a polishing cloth or strong jewelry cleaner is not recommended.


RHODIUM PLATED

When the plating becomes discolored, you will need to clean it using the following instructions:

  • Cleaning gold jewelry is best done with warm water and detergent-free soap. Soak for 10 minutes and no longer than 15 minutes. With your fingers gently rub the jewelry and with a soft toothbrush gently scrub the finer areas.
  • Rinse off all soap with lukewarm water, place the jewelry on a soft towel and gently pat dry and leave it to air dry overnight.
  • Use non-abrasive cleaning materials. If a cleaning substance is too strong it may remove the rhodium. Do not use jewelry cleaning products.

Do not let your jewelry come into contact with nail polish removers, creams, perfume or hairspray. Store your jewelry in a soft lined box or pouch with an anti-tarnish strip. Try to keep pieces apart so they don't rub together.
