Please take care of your beautiful Clara Lifestyle handmade jewelry and dresses, treat them with care and they will last for years. We love you wearing your pieces as often as possible, and with the love from wear and tear they can get dirty.
Our pieces of jewelry and dresses are delicate and are not made to be worn during sports and activities such as cleaning and gardening. We don’t recommend wearing jewelry in water, especially chlorinated pools and hot tubs. Be sure to remove your pieces before sleeping and when applying cosmetics, perfumes, sprays, creams and oils.
Cleaning is simple and easy. Please take a look at the recommended methods below.
- 14k Gold Plated: In a bowl combine a few drops of mild dish-washing soap with warm water. Let your jewelry soak in this mixture for about 15 minutes. If you want to get into fine areas of your piece, gently take a soft bristle toothbrush to it. Rinse off with warm water and pat dry. If you want to give your piece an extra shine it can be done with a polishing cloth.
- Sterling Silver: Create a paste by mixing baking soda and warm water. Run this mixture back and forth through your piece. Rinse off with warm water and pat dry. If you want to give your piece an extra shine it can be done with a polishing cloth.
We recommend storing each of your jewels separate to avoid scratches. Place your pieces in a pouch or an air tight plastic bag (especially sterling silver and gold vermeil to prevent oxidization and tarnishing). To avoid tangling your necklaces and bracelets, close the plastic bag over the end of the chain and let the end dangle out slightly. Be sure to keep your jewelry away from extreme heat or moisture.
