SIBYLLA DELPHICA jewelry is handcrafted using a variety of materials, many of which are very delicate and should be treated with special care.
Here you'll find some instructions on how to care for your jewelry and keep them as new:
We recommend keeping your jewelry out of water-do not shower or swim with it - soaps, chlorine and salt can damage some metals and gemstones.
Also, remember to always remove jewelry before sleeping, exercising, gardening and cleaning - some house detergents contain chemicals that damage your jewelry
AVOID CONTACT with
Nail Polish Remover
Perfume (be careful when you put on your perfume - avoid spraying on your jewelry)
Any product that might contain alcohol, bleach or any corrosive acids
STORE your jewelry separately and untangled (necklace, bracelets). Since gemstones and metals can scratch each other
Avoid storing silver jewelry in wood containers, since it contains acids that can erode the metal. Same goes for cardboard and paper, since they are both derived from wood.
Tip: Stretchy bracelets should be ROLLED over your hand when putting them on, instead of stretching or pulling at the elastic cord. Stretching or pulling the bracelet can weaken the elastic cord and over time may cause the bracelet to break.
How to Clean your Jewelry
Use a small flannel cloth or soft cotton to lightly clean your jewelry
The silver-plated tag necklaces that come with some of our gold and diamond jewelry can be cleaned with the included alcantara tag pouches
If you have to use water, which we recommend you avoid, only use distilled water and then dry your jewelry with a hairdryer, on the low heat setting
For cleaning in nooks and crannies (patterns) use a very soft toothbrush, but very lightly
Do not use toothpaste, more on that below
Do not use sonic cleaners, unless you are sure that it wont harm the particular gemstone of your jewelry
Some GEMSTONES are sensitive to sun :
Amethyst: becomes paler
Ametrine: may change colour
Aquamarine: becomes paler
Aventurine: translucent types often lose colour
Beryl: brown or orange types may change to pale pink
Citrine: may change colour
Kunzite: becomes pale or loses colour
Rose Quartz: becomes paler
Smoky Quartz: becomes paler
Some other stones can be quite porous and as such shouldn't be left immersed in water for too long:
How to care for your sandals
Avoid getting them wet in sea water, but if you do rinse them out under a faucet, let them dry and then smear regular baby oil to soften them up. Baby oil makes them soft and dark where as sea water makes them very dark and stiff. Keep them away from heat radiators and especially puppies as well as some adult dogs (they love them!!!).
