This precious metal is a favorite at AMANDA PEARL for its ability to stand up to the rigors of everyday life. Whether in yellow, white, or rose, 14k is more scratch resistant than its 18k counterpart. While gold is tarnish resistant, it can get dirty like anything else. To care for your AMANDA PEARL fine jewelry, we recommend cleaning it with a mild detergent or ammonia solution. You can use a soft brush, but avoid using an abrasive material as it can scratch the gold. Be sure to rinse and wipe clean.
AMANDA PEARL brass jewelry is plated in either 18k yellow gold, 18k rose gold, rhodium (silver), or dark ruthenium (gunmetal). To ensure the life of brass jewelry, do not expose it to water. Please remove your jewelry while exercising, bathing, swimming, or engaging in hand to hand combat. We recommend keeping it on for political protests and executive meetings. Also to avoid: contact with perfumes, lotions, potions, or other personal products.
AMANDA PEARL recommends cleaning your plated jewelry using a damp, soft cloth. Make sure to fully dry the piece before wearing it. Do not use harsh chemicals, jewelry cleaners, or polishing cloths especially, as this will affect the finish. We suggest storing your brass jewelry somewhere soft and protected - the pouch that we provide is a good spot. Please remember that as this is not fine jewelry and needs to be treated accordingly - we highly recommend that you follow these instructions carefully to be able to enjoy your AMANDA PEARL jewelry for years to come.
Diamonds & Precious Gemstones:
AMANDA PEARL Fine Jewelry uses white and black diamonds, rubies, amethysts, emeralds, and sapphires. Though highly valued for their longevity and beauty, they can still suffer chips and fractures from a precise hit. We recommend cleaning it with a mild detergent and a soft brush. Be sure to rinse and wipe clean.
Pearls & Semi-Precious Gemstones:
AMANDA PEARL uses white cultured pearls, Tahitian pearls, and a variety of semi-precious stones. Extra care should be taken with these semi precious stones. Cosmetics, hair sprays, and perfume should be applied before putting on jewelry. Extra care can be taken by wiping the stone carefully with a soft cloth to remove any traces of these substances when you take off the jewelry. You can also wash your pearl with mild soap and water. Do not clean these stones with any chemicals, abrasives or solvents.
