- Although concrete is strong, on a small scale it’s not indestructible. Please take care not to drop or knock your jewellery as both the concrete and enamel finishes are prone to chip and mark.
- Prolonged contact with skin can cause a slight discolouration of the concrete and enamel finishes due to the natural oils in your skin but this will not harm you or the jewellery.
- Although water will not damage the concrete it can harm the jewellery's finishing touches, where possible please avoid contact with water.
- Avoid contact with harmful chemicals, even things like perfume and moisturisers can damage and discolour the concrete.
- You may want to polish up the metal aspects of the jewellery but please avoid getting cleaning solutions on the concrete as it can discolour the concrete.
- Otherwise, treat concrete jewellery with just as much love and care as all your other jewellery!
- For a simple clean: gently brush your jewellery using a soft toothbrush in warm soapy water, rinse in fresh water and then dry with a soft cloth or hairdryer.
- Polishing Cloths: can also be used to clean up metal jewellery.
