Care of your deBlaca Jewellery

Care of your Jewellery

Thanks for buying some of my irish made jewellery, I hope you will enjoy wearing it as much as I have enjoyed designing it.

I want you to enjoy and wear your deBlaca jewellery for many years to come.  In order for it to continue to look its best, my jewellery does need to be looked after. Some hair and skin products can react, causing the silver to tarnish and lose some of its shine. Everyday wear may speed up tarnishing especially on items like rings and bracelets which have lots of contact with the skin and external surfaces.  As many of my pieces contain a matt finish, this may tarnish quicker than highly polished surfaces. 

Treat your jewellery with care, removing bracelets and rings when doing physical work, and avoid contact with perfumes creams and lotions. Hot weather and perspiration can also speed up the tarnishing process. Jewellery should always be taken off before the pool, shower, or sea.  I would also recommend storing your jewellery in acid free tissue in a jewellery box when you are not wearing it.

A Silver 'Dip' solution is a great way to clean silver pieces, although always make sure the jewellery is then rinsed thoroughly afterwards.  A simple way to clean jewellery is with warm soapy water and a really soft toothbrush. Then rinse well and pat dry with a soft cloth.
