Jewelry Care

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 

  • Detergents

  • Bleach

  • Nail Polish Remover

  • Hairspray

  • 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:

Opal

Pearl

Turquiose

Lava

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!!!).

 

About the size (must be one size larger than your shoe size-european sizes-check the list below)
4-4.5 = 35 *** 10-10.5 = 41
5-5.5 = 36 *** 11-11.5 = 42
6-6.5 = 37 *** 12-12.5 = 43
7-7.5 = 38 *** 13-13.5 = 44
8-8.5 = 39 *** 14-14.5 = 45
9-9.5 = 40 *** 15-15.5 = 46
