Caring for your Au 79 pieces so they can last a lifetime, is simple and easy when remembering a few things...
How to Care for Your Jewelry
All Au 79 jewelry is made with recycled Sterling Silver and 14k Gold Plated (sterling silver base plated with 14k gold) and protected with a layer of e-coating. Gold vermeil requires careful cleaning with a soft cotton cloth, avoiding abrasive cloths and chemicals. If you use a silver polishing pad on vermeil, it will take the gold plating right off, so be careful to use the right cloth.
Avoid wearing jewelry while swimming, showering, sweating and sleeping. Plated jewelry is good for daily wear but should be cleaned regularly with a soft cloth.
Avoid letting your jewelry come into contact with harsh household chemicals like hairspray and chlorine, and make sure to store your jewelry in a safe dry place. Storing your pieces individually in soft pouches can help to avoid scuffs and scratches as well. If the jewelry comes in contact with water, perfume, sweat, or any other form of moisture, be sure to wipe and dry the piece.
To give your Au 79 jewels their longest life and to keep them looking new, store them in a dry area like a jewelry box or pouch.
