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 to get rid of dirt, 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. We recommend doing this in a bowl and not in the sink to avoid the possibility of dropping your jewellery down the drain!
Polishing Cloths are great to clean up and remove tarnish from metal jewellery.
If your jewellery is heavily tarnished we would recommend speaking to the jeweller who made it for advise, different metals and finishes will require different treatments.
Brass jewellery can be polished up using a small amount of Brasso on a soft, clean, cloth. Please follow the instructions provided with the brasso.
General Care Tips…
Storing jewellery in an airtight container will prevent it from tarnishing too quickly.
