Certain metals and plating can tarnish over time with exposure to chemicals, moisture and sometimes, more quickly, due to an individual's natural skin pH levels. Please understand that everyone's skin can react differently to various metals, such as brass, plated/vermeil or gold-filled finishes. It is best to know if you have any allergies to metals prior to purchasing your items, as Cheeky Couture is not liable for skin reactions, wear, tarnishing or damages.
We have some tips below to help maintain your jewelry with proper care & storage.
- Store jewels in a cool, dry place to avoid oxidation.
- Gently wipe each piece with a jewelry cloth after each wear.
- Any delicate items should be stored appropriately to avoid tangling.
Some common examples for plating issues:
-Chemicals: sunscreen, perfume, lotions, hairspray, cosmetics, chlorine.
-Moisture: humidity, water, perspiration, sea water.
It's recommended to put your jewelry on last to minimize contact with these chemicals and should your item get wet, make sure to dry it off immediately to reduce the risk of oxidation.
