HOW TO CLEAN YOUR ANDRONIKE JEWELRY

Overtime, cosmetics, perfume, lotions and natural skin oils can make jewelry appear dull. Additionally, these cosmetics, perfume, swear, detergent, etc., may cause a change in color or staining to the piece, especially from seawater and thermal spring water. Below are tips for keeping your pieces clean and shiny.

STORAGE

When not worn, clean and store your ANDRONIKE piece in the dedicated bag given during your purchase or in a sealed pouch in order to avoid abrasion and color change. To avoid scratches and tarnishing each piece of jewelry should be stored separately and bracelets should always be stored flat. Never store your ANDRONIKE jewelry in a leather pouch or bag.

SILVER METAL JEWELRY

Everyday interactions with air, dust and other natural particles can tarnish silver metal, especially places with extreme amounts of Sulfur, which includes hair products, leather and Chlorine. Since these are unavoidable elements of everyday life, it is important to maintain your jewelry piece with these specific directions. Wipe down your silver jewelry with clean smooth cotton, a flannel cloth or sterling silver specialized cleaning cloth.
We recommend you wear ANDRONIKE jewelry pieces everyday. If worn everyday, please wipe the piece with a polishing cloth. If the piece is worn occasionally, we advise that you wipe down the jewelry with warm water and mild soap. Once you do so, place the jewel in the ANDRONIKE pouch provided during purchase. Regular wear of your ANDRONIKE sterling silver can also help prevent tarnishing.
To remove stubborn tarnish, clean your silver jewelry with warm water and mild soap. There are many non- abrasive polishes available on shelves designed to remove tarnish. However, always read the warning labels carefully.

18K GOLD METAL JEWELRY

Please take off your ANDRONIKE gold jewelry at night and store them flat to prevent kinking and breaking.
Most gold jewelry can be safely cleaned with a non- harsh jewelry cleaner. Never use creamy jewelry cleaners on gold because they may contain coarse abrasives that will scratch the surface of the jewelry. Avoid contact with perfume, soap, hairsprays and cosmetics.
If the gold tarnishes fast, wipe down the gold jewelry piece with warm water and soft soap or non- abrasive liquid detergent. Always rinse completely and blot dry with a polishing cloth. Then rinse thoroughly and polish with a soft cloth. This will help you let the gold maintain its original brand-new look.

PLATINUM METAL JEWELRY

Platinum metal is hypoallergenic and tarnish- resistant, making it perfect for people with sensitive skin. Platinum’s purity makes it the perfect choice for customers with allergies or those who wish to wear their jewelry all the time without fear of discoloration. It is inevitable that all jewelry is going to have signs of wear; however, due to Platinum’s durability and purity, there will be little metal loss when the piece is scratched. Our jewelers can polish your Platinum jewel to remove or reduce surface scratches. To carefully clean your platinum jewel, use gentle dish washing soap and a bowl of warm water then soak the piece into a bowl. After cleaning, remember to pat the jewelry till it is completely dried and place into the ANDRONIKE pouch.

OXIDIZED JEWELRY

ANDRONIKE aged silver jewelry has black burnished or emulsified metal parts from being oxidized. This styling method enhances jewelry details.

When silver reacts with oxygen, oxidized silver is created. As a result, excessive cleaning or polishing on these parts of ANDRONIKE jewelry is not recommended as it may diminish or lessen the burnished beautiful metal effect, resulting in altered jewelry appearance and style. Here, we have given you complete directions and tips on how to clean your ANDRONIKE aged silver jewelry.

Using silver polish and a polishing cloth, take a very small amount of solution, usually no more than a penny size depending on the type of jewelry piece and clean only the sterling silver part of the jewelry. You can continue to polish the silver portion of the jewelry until it becomes bright as new.

ANDRONIKE oxidized aged silver jewelry should not be soaked or dipped into any silver polish solution. The solution is too strong for the oxidized parts of the jewelry. If silver polish solution is accidently poured over the oxidization part, do not rub it with a cloth. Simply let the jewelry air dry so that the aged effect does not rub off.
