Caring for Your Jewelry

Properly caring for your Eden Jewelry will ensure a longer wear life. Follow these
simple guidelines, and you can enjoy your jewelry for years to come. Avoid wet
environments. Do not wear into the shower or store in humid places. Apply lotions,
makeup, hairspray, and perfume before putting on your jewelry. Avoid contact with
household cleaning products.

Caring for Sterling Silver Jewelry

Sterling silver jewellery is marked with a 925 stamp. Polish sterling silver pieces with
a jewelry polishing cloth. If more attention is needed, immerse in a solution of warm
water and mild dishwashing liquid and gently hand wash. A soft toothbrush can also
be used for more abrasive cleaning when needed. Thoroughly rinse and completely
dry the silver before storing, as moisture contributes to tarnishing. Never clean your
jewelry in bleach. If the jewelry contains gemstones or pearls, do not submerge the
entire piece into the water. Instead, use a cotton swab with mild dishwashing liquid to
wash only the silver.

Note: These instructions are not for silver plated items. Please see the next section
for plated items.

Caring for Gold Plated Stainless Steel Jewelry or Silver Plated Jewelry.

To clean your gold plated jewelry at home, use a non-abrasive jewelry cleaner that is
safe for plated parts or a mild soap and water. Use a soft cloth to clean the item
carefully. After cleaning, rinse with lukewarm water and allow it to dry completely.
Buffing your plated jewelry with a soft cloth is an effective and inexpensive way to
keep your pieces lustrous.

Note: Do not use a jewelry polishing cloth, as this can damage the finish.

Caring for Brass Jewelry

To return brass to its original shine, make a paste of baking soda, water, and lemon
juice and gently rub it onto the piece with a soft cloth. Wash the mixture off using
running water, then dry and buff with a clean cloth.

Caring for Stainless Steel Jewelry

To clean stainless steel jewelry, pour warm water into a small bowl, and add mild
dishwashing soap. Dip a soft, lint-free cloth into the soapy water, and gently wipe the
stainless steel jewelry with the damp cloth until the piece is clean. When cleaning it,
rub the item along its polish lines. Wipe remaining soap off jewelry using a moist
cloth dipped in clean water. Dry jewelry well with a clean towel, and then leave to air
dry. After it is clean, a jewelry polishing cloth can be used to shine it.

Caring for Braided or Beaded Jewelry

To clean beaded or braided jewelry, use a soft brush to apply a solution of warm
water and mild soap.   If you are cleaning your jewelry in or near the sink, be sure to
place a rubber mat or cloth over the drain to avoid losing any small pieces.
