CARE OF YOUR ATELIER EMME JEWELRY
Each Atelier Emme jewelry piece is handcrafted using the best materials available. Though all the pieces are fabricated to ensure a long life, handcrafted jewelry using natural precious and semi-precious stones and precious metals require a bit of extra care.
Always apply perfumes, lotions, hairspray, spray tanners and other types of cosmetics BEFORE putting on your fine jewelry pieces. The alcohol and chemicals in these personal care products can dull and sometimes dehydrate natural stones. Do not wear your jewelry while showering and / or swimming; soaps, chlorine and salt water can dull the sparkle in your stones and metals.
Store your fine jewelry pieces in their original Atelier Emme boxes, Atelier Emme Velvet Pouches or in plastic storage baggies which will prevent oxidation of precious metals.
TO CLEAN YOUR FINE JEWELRY
Stones (Precious and Semi-precious): Wipe with a soft, non-abrasive cloth such as a cotton tee or soft cotton towel. DO NOT use chemical commercial cleaners and | or ultrasonic cleaning machines.
Precious metals: Buff with a commercial cloth treated for silver or gold. Oxidized finishes do not need to be buffed. They will patina beautifully as you wear them over time.
A little TLC goes a long way and caring for your jewelry pieces as suggested will ensure they will last for your enjoyment!
