Love Your Jewellery
Dust, pollution, cosmetics and perfumes all conspire to cloud the brilliance of a gemstone and dull the surface of gold, gold vermeil and sterling silver. We suggest that you take the time to properly store and care for your Didi Jewelry. We recommend applying perfume or other sprayed substances before putting on your jewellery. Jewellery should always be removed prior to showering.
Storing Your Jewellery
We recommend that you store your Didi Jewellery in the special pouch and jewelry box provided with your order. You can also store your jewellery in any air-tight container or bag. Proper storage helps to prevent scratching of stones and metal. It is best to keep jewellery away from extreme heat or moisture. Be careful not to place heavy objects on top of your jewellery during storage and to be gentle when putting on or removing your jewelry. If possible, keep in a j jewellery box provided from ourselves or retailer.
Caring For Gemstone Jewellery
Since many genuine gemstones and especially pearls are quite delicate, hot water, harsh chemicals and cleaners should be avoided at all times. Very porous stones such as pearls, opals and emeralds should be cleaned using an untreated, dry, soft cloth only. We do not recommend the use of any jewellery polishing cloths which have been treated with cleaners or polishing agents.
Caring For Gold Vermeil Jewellery
Gold vermeil is an overlay of gold over a base of sterling silver. Gold vermeil jewellery requires special care. Remember to store your gold vermeil jewellery in an airtight container when not in use—and to remove before applying perfumes, lotions, or before bathing. Chlorine, especially at high temperatures, can permanently damage or discolor your gold vermeil jewellery. Avoid wearing gold vermeil jewellery while using chlorine bleach or while in a pool or hot tub.
To clean gold vermeil jewellery, buff very gently with a soft and dry 100% cotton cloth or a microfiber cloth. Never use chemical cleaners on 22k gold vermeil jewelry--it can strip the gold finish. It is natural for gold vermeil jewellery to tarnish with time—it adds character to the item makes it as individual as you are.
