Thank you for recently purchasing a 'Steph Sells Seashells' piece of jewellery, each handmade piece is made with so much love, therefore it's important to take care of your beautiful new pieces.
"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure". Maybe you’ve heard this saying from your grandma, but it's worth repeating. Preventing your jewellery from getting damaged is the easiest way to take care of it in the long run.
LAST ON, FIRST OFF
First rule of thumb for any kind of jewellery is that it should be the last thing you put on in the morning, and the first thing you take off at night. When unworn, store your jewellery in an airtight bag or container.
AVOID WATER & CHEMICALS
It's important to remember that non-precious metals and glass beads can be damaged by chemicals or turn rusty when wet. All our pieces are 'costume jewellery', meaning there are no 'precious' elements used in the making of our jewellery. To ensure longevity, you must treat them with care.
TREAT AS DELICATELY AS POSSIBLE
Your jewels may not be manufactured out of 'precious' materials, but by treating them with respect, love and care ~ they could very well last a lifetime.
LAST, BUT NOT LEAST ~ ENJOY!
So there you have it; preventing damage and proper storage are keys to success when it comes to the longevity and condition of your jewellery.
Now you know how to take care of your jewels, put them on when your ready to go and show them off with pride!
