We know that invincible feeling when wearing your favourite jewellery and we want your go to pieces to last you for years to come.
Here is how to care for your AIDA jewellery so it will last you as long as possible:
At AIDA we use silver, 9ct and 18ct gold as our metals. Pieces made of 9ct or 18ct gold do not tarnish, but to preserve the colour of our other metals it is best to remove your jewellery before showering, exercising or sleeping. Clean metals with warm, soapy water.
The best way to store metals is keeping different materials separately to avoid tarnishing. It is best to store metal jewellery in their own pouch or bag or a jewellery box with different compartments. All our jewellery pieces contain jump rings for safety, which should be tightened every couple of years to avoid losing your jewellery.
Avoid getting pearls wet, remove them before showing, exercising or sleeping. Clean your pearls with a damp cloth, lukewarm water and mild soap only as needed.Do not use water that is too hot or cold. Never soak pearls in water.
Avoid harsh chemicals like hairspray and detergent. Store pearls in a box or pouch where they get moisture. Do not store pearls in airtight conditions such as plastic bags as they will start to lose their shine.
Avoid getting your silk earrings wet, remove them before exercise, showering or sleeping. Store silks carefully, preferably in their own boxes. Do not pull on the tassles. Loose strands may be gently snipped away with scissors if needed.
You may gently iron the silk tassels on the lowest setting of your iron and under a cotton t-shirt if needed.
