Jewelry Care

Jewelry Care
• For ready to ware, clean jewelry gently with antibacterial soup and take off excess make-up and skin oils after each wearing. 
• Put your jewelry on you body after applying make-up,
hairspray, perfumes and/or type of lotions.  Never expose chemicals or
chlorinated water, can do damage for ever.
• Do not sleep with HOOPS EARRINGS or BRACELETS because
the piece is delicate and as movement causes stress all moving parts.
• Never use toothpaste or other abrasives to clean metal or stone. And remember
any alcohol can opaque the gold filled and sterling silver. Only use antibacterial soup and take off with water and dry with cotton cloth
as a polishing.
• The gold is Gold Filled this produces a more fine and have
thicker surface of really gold than gold plating.
• The plate is sterling silver
is similar to silver but lasts longer and is not turn yellow. If you want better
clean it with water and antibacterial soap or sea salt water, rinse well
and READY! The gemstone are from around the world and clean too cotton
cloth. 
• How to Avoid Damaging Gemstones?
Some gemstones are by nature more fragile than others. In general, you can prevent many problems by not exposing gemstones to common elements such as:
  • Chlorine
  • Household cleaning chemicals
  • Extreme heat or light
• Cleaning Silver Jewelry
Sterling silver tarnishes in the presence of common everyday items that contain sulfur, such as leather, rubber, chlorine, and perspiration. Use a clean cotton cloth and antibacterial soap dish diluted in water.  Apply the diluted antibacterial soap to the clean cotton cloth and rub the piece in one direction.  Try to avoid circular motions.  To remove heavier tarnish, wash your silver jewelry with warm water and finish. Never use anything but a clean, nub-free cotton or flannel cloth. We do not recommend silver polish or dip style cleaning solutions, which will remove the antique oxidation that we intentionally apply Kmi Designs to many silver pieces to give them their distinctive look.
• Cleaning Pearls
Pearls require proper care to retain their beauty and luster. They should be kept away from perfumes, ammonia, cosmetics, vinegar, perspiration, chlorine, and dirt. We recommend you put them on last, after hair products and perfume. Pearls should be removed before exercising to protect them from perspiration. After wearing, gently wipe them with a slightly damp cloth. Wash pearls periodically with antibacterial soap (NOT DETERGENT) and a soft cloth. Rinse pearls in clean water and wrap them in a thin, damp cotton towel to dry. To prevent scratches, pearls should be stored away from other objects in the storage pouch provided. However, do not store them in an airtight package such as a plastic bag. Opals and pearls require humidity. When storing them, make sure the environment is NOT too dry or they may crack.
• Leather Care
Some of our pieces are made of leather. This is a natural material and slight of colour and texture are part of its unique. Designed to long life with wear, leather may fade and soften beautifully over time. Remember to cover any embellishments such as precious and unique metal, when applying the protector. We recommended not apply any protector in your leather. Also, always take extra care when wearing light colored leather with dark denim or black pants to avoid the dark dye transferring to your pieces.
Thanks you for trusting in my Designs.
