925/- silver

Brigitte coats every piece of 925/- silver jewellery with an anti-tarnish coating so that it retains its light colour for as long as possible. Over a long period of wear, tarnishing cannot be completely avoided, i.e. a grey colouring of the material due to the oxygen and hydrogen sulphide present in the air will occur, this is in the nature of the precious metal silver.

Storage:
Please avoid exposing the jewellery to the humid bathroom air for a long time! To preserve the pure white colour of the silver jewellery for as long as possible, the pieces should be kept dry and airtight in a casket or the plastic bag provided. A piece of aluminium foil also binds the sulphur oxygen from the air, so feel free to add some to the bag.

Cleaning:
If a silver bath is at hand, the jewellery (without beads only) can be immersed very briefly and then rinsed well with water. However, it is best if a jeweller cleans the jewellery in an ion bath. Ask your local jeweller or use our service: for 30,- € we not only clean the jewellery, we also renew the tarnish protection.

 

925/- silver gold-plated

Storage:
Especially with gold-plated jewellery, proper care should be taken. We recommend taking the jewellery off before showering, cleaning or even at night. This prevents excessive abrasion.

Cleaning:
To avoid damaging the gold plating, please be very careful when caring for it. A soft cotton cloth is perfect for cleaning, never use rough cloths such as kitchen crepe or polishing cloths!

 

18kt gold in all alloys

Storage:
Do not place on a hard surface or store with other jewellery. The velvet of the jewellery box or a soft cloth offer the best protection against scratches.

Cleaning:
To maintain the shine of the pieces, gold jewellery can occasionally be rubbed with a jewellery cleaning cloth. If heavily soiled, gold jewellery can be placed in a warm solution of mild detergent for 10 minutes and cleaned with a toothbrush. Finally, rinse under lukewarm running water and dry with a soft cloth or kitchen paper.
