A selection of my jewelry is available for wholesale. Please email me for a copy / link to my latest linesheet.
- Store your Girl with the Pearl Jewelry in a dry, preferably airtight place.
- Don't wear your jewelry while bathing, swimming, sleeping, exercising or spray perfumes or other chemical sprays while wearing your jewelry. The chemicals in these products damage the finish of the jewelry and may cause it to discolor and/or tarnish. Put on your jewelry last, after applying all cosmetics.
- Clean your pearl and gemstone jewelry with a soft jewelry cloth. Gold and silver plated jewelry can be gently cleaned in mild soapy water.
- Sterling silver and gold fill jewelry can be cleaned with a silver polishing cloth. I recommend Sunshine Jewelry Polishing Cloths.
- Don't use strong chemicals or abrasive cleaners to clean your jewelry.
- Hand knotted jewelry should be stored flat and not hung. Hanging will result in the silk stretching.
- Avoid wearing pearls with wool. Wool fibers may scratch your pearls.
- Pearl, gemstone and other stud earrings should not be worn while sleeping, exercising, swimming or bathing. These earrings are all individually set on surgical steel or sterling silver posts and the durability of the earrings can be negatively affected if they get wet.
Girl with the Pearl jewelry is delicate and while sturdy enough to withstand everyday wear, please handle gently.
