MATERIAL CARE GUIDE

 

SILVER & BRASS JEWELRY

Silver and brass will tarnish if not properly cared for. All jewelry comes with a care guide, storage bag, and a polishing cloth.

Our jewelry is unlacquered and, if properly cared for, can keep its original shine or be allowed to develop a beautiful patina over time.

Do not use any household cleaners, solvents, or polishes as they may affect the finish, alter the color, or damage inlay.

Do not allow pieces containing shagreen or walnut inlay to get wet.

Jewelry should be wiped clean with a soft cloth after wearing. Store your piece in the original bags that it arrived in, or in a dark, dry, air-tight container. Use the included polishing cloth or microfiber bag to remove tarnish and maintain shine.

 

WALNUT

Dust regularly with a very lightly dampened cloth and immediately wipe dry. Refrain from using any household cleaners, solvents, or polishes as they may affect the finish, alter the color, or damage inlay.

Soak up any moisture or spills immediately. A clear paste wax can be applied following the manufacturer's instructions to restore polish and reduce water stains. We recommend General Finishes Satin Finishing Wax.

 

LEATHER & SHAGREEN

Wipe clean with a lightly dampened cloth and wipe dry. Do not get leather or shagreen inlay wet.

Refrain from using any household cleaners, conditioners, or solvents as they will damage or crack the leather or alter the color.

Stained shagreen can be gently cleaned with a soft toothbrush.

 

FELT

Felt is a naturally durable and dirt resistant material. Its surface will naturally soften with use. Beat gently or vacuum with a clean soft brush attachment to remove dust & crumbs. For wet spills, blot immediately with a dry cloth or paper towel. Gentle wiping with a baby wipe can remove some light dirt or grease stains. For heavy stains use a household spot cleaner like K2R. In extreme cases gentle dry cleaning can be used but is not recommended.

If your felt receives heavy use and starts to pill you can use a new shaving razor to remove pilling.

Do not machine wash.
