Jewelry is fragile and should be handled with care. To clean, gently wipe with dry, soft cloth. Excessive bending will cause pieces to break. In order to achieve a long lifespan of your jewels, keep adjustments to a minimum. We are not responsible for damages caused by excessive bending. Keep out of extreme heat or cold. Do not expose to continuous moisture. Unless specified otherwise, most of our items are made of silver or gold plated pewter and brass.
