Caring for your Jewelry

Your keepsake stone is created using jewelry grade resin and have to be treated with the utmost love the same way you treat pearls.

Remove rings before applying hand sanitizers to protect the stone.

Avoid wearing your Keepsake Jewelry in showers, baths, spas and swimming pools, chlorine and heat may affect and discolour your keepsake jewelry.

When getting ready, always put on your Keepsake jewelry last, after you have applied lotions, perfumes and hairspray.

Remove your Keepsake Jewelry when cleaning. Harsh chemicals can tarnish sterling silver or gold filled and can discolour your keepsake stone.

Do not store your Keepsake Jewelry next to heating vents, window sills or in a hot car. The heat can cause your keepsake stone to discolour.

When you're not wearing your jewelry it's important to make sure you are storing it properly.  With time, any sterling silver or gold filled piece that is exposed to air is susceptible to tarnishing. 

Prior to storing, make sure your Keepsake Jewelry is dry, as moisture speeds the tarnishing process so it’s important to make sure your piece is dry before putting it away. I recommend storing it in the anti tarnish bag provided with your order making sure it is well sealed.

If you do notice some tarnish on your piece, use the polishing cloth provided with your order.  This will remove any tarnish and dullness and keep your Jewelry looking like new. Please only use the cloth on the metal  and not the stone. You may not be able to reach every part of textured surfaces. For these cases, use the method at the bottom of the page.

To polish your stone, I recommend a plastic polish like Flitz or Novus. 


In certain cases, it may be impossible to clean jewelry with just a polishing cloth - heavily textured surfaces, chains, or twists and curves in the piece can prevent a cloth from reaching every surface. For these pieces, an easy-to-make solution in the presence of aluminum and heat removes tarnish. Within moments, the tarnish binds with the aluminum, leaving the metal bright and shiny again! 

NOTE: Use extreme caution. The water should neither be too hot to touch nor left to sit longer than 2 to 5 minutes!

Choose a container.

It should be large enough to accommodate the piece you want to clean, such as a bowl, pot or basin.

Line the bottom with aluminum foil.

It doesn't have to completely cover the surface - just ensure that the tarnished pieces will be able to come in contact with the foil.

Add equal parts salt, baking soda and liquid dish soap.

There's no exact measurement for this, but about 1 tablespoon of each ingredient works well in 1-2 litres of water.

Fill the container with hot water.

The water should not be too hot to touch.

Lower the pieces into the solution ensuring it is touching the aluminum foil and watch the tarnish disappear. 

This process can happen very quickly or take a few minutes, depending on the temperature of the water.

Retrieve the piece.

Rinse in fresh water and Dry off with soft clothes.
