Of course we would want for our items that we buy to last forever. Everything takes some effort to maintain, so does Mermaids and Stars jewelry.
THINGS THAT CAUSE TARNISH
Pools/hot tubs/chlorine: This one is very possibly one of the worst offenders. Gold filled can be ruined after just a couple dips in a heavily chlorinated hot tub, and sterling silver can tarnish almost immediately in a chemically laden public pool. If there’s one thing you just don’t do to your jewelry, it’s this.
Body chemistry: Hormones obviously vary from person to person, everyone is different. While it might be an issue for one person, it might not really make a difference for another. This is a hard one to understand because there really is no way to know if it will effect you or not until it does, but for the most part, this is really only an issue with less than 10% of people. Unless you’ve had experience with how 14k gold reacts with your skin, theres only one way to find out and that’s to try!
Sweat: Consistent exposure to all the salt and chemicals in your sweat can really be rough on your jewelry. It’s best to try to remember to remove your jewelry before working out.
HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR JEWELRY
EXPOSURE TO WATER
SHOWERING: If you wear your jewelry in the shower, make sure to use a gentle soap. Agressive ingredients in some products can negatively affect your Mermaids and Stars pieces.
POOL: We recommend to take off your pieces while going into chlorine pool. Chlorine is a chemical that reacts badly with jewelry.
