FILYBIJOUX jewels are a timeless investment. For this reason we have decided to provide you with some useful tips on how to take care and maintain your FILYBIJOUX jewelry:
Brightness preservation :
All FILYBIJOUX jewels are in 925 silver and treated with a galvanic bath that gives it brightness. Fogging is a natural process that can be cleaned.
Exposure to certain chemicals or harsh environments can compromise the integrity of your jewelry such as sweat, perfumes, detergents, chlorine and salt water.
Cleaning the jewelry:
If your sterling silver and gold-plated jewelry has become dull, an eyeglass or silver polishing cloth is a great tool to make it shine again. However, it will not remove the scratches.
Silver Jewelry : Pour a small amount of mild soap into warm water and use a small, soft toothbrush to clean the jewelry.
Gold Plated : Gold- plated jewelry requires extra care. Very heavy use of the toothbrush can cause the gold plating to fade, so it is very important to do this process very carefully to prevent the gold plating from fraying.
How to store your jewelry:
Jewelry should be stored away from direct sunlight and heat, in a protective jewelry box or our cotton pouch. Never use polyvinyl plastic bags or rubber containers as they contain sulfur compounds which may oxidize sterling silver faster and turn it black.
Do not store jewelry in humid places.
Do not place Filybijoux jewels near other jewels that are not silver or gold as this could cause blackening.
FILYBIJOUX does not guarantee that its gold-plated jewelry will last forever.
Gold-plated pieces are naturally more fragile and can lose their color over time. How quickly the gold plating wears off will depend on multiple variables from the chemicals used for skin care, the level of sweating, or even the skin's natural PH. For this reason, it is especially important to take good care of your gold-plated jewelry.
