Your piece of DANAI GIANNELLI jewellery can last a long time if looked after and handled with care. The following guidelines will make sure your piece will be in a good condition for years to come:
~ Avoid direct contact with perfumes, creams, sunscreens, acetone, detergents.
~ Make sure to leave your fine jewelry at home in a safe place, when taking part in intense activities such as exercising / sports or engaging in manual labor.
~ When getting ready, please put your jewellery on last, after applying make-up, perfume, hairspray and lotions.
- All our gold plated jewelry have a thick layer of 24K and 18K gold (0,5 – 4 microns), which offers long endurance and excellent quality in the color of the plating. However, all gold plated jewelry are liable to lose their color overtime. The fading of the gold plating depends on various factors, such as direct contact with chemical products used for skincare, level of perspiration or even your natural skin PH* (please read below for plating & pricing). For this reason, it is important to take special care of your gold plated jewelry:
– We recommend you remove your jewellery when washing your hands or applying hand sanitizer and lotion, ensuring your skin is dry before handling your piece.
– Do not store your jewelry in the bathroom or any humid spot. Sea water can affect the brightness of the color plating. Store your jewelry away from natural sunlight and heat and we recommend placing them in a protective (lined) jewelry box, or in a plastic zip lock bag made of polyethylene. Please note that our boxes and pouches are not made for long-term storage for our gold plated jewelry, as they are not airtight.
- All our silver jewelry are made of solid Sterling Silver (925), with a mat or shiny finish. Silver is a precious metal and similar to most metals, it tarnishes over time – we beleive this is part of its natural beauty. The tarnish will show up as a discoloration that may eventually turn into black. The speed at which sterling silver tarnishes can be affected by its general surroundings and environment, even by the food and water you may consume.
Use a polishing cloth to remove mild tarnishing marks, combined with silver tarnish removal products, such as SILVO, for heavier tarnishing. Use a small piece of cotton to apply the tarnish removal cream by rubbing the silver in small circular motions. Once the tarnish has been removed rinse the silver item in water, wash your hands thoroughly and dry the items well. We offer a polishing service to your Danai Giannelli silver jewelry, free of charge (shipping costs are not included).
