CARING FOR YOUR JEWELRY

WHETHER YOU HAVE PURCHASED YOUR BIJOU BAUBLE YOURSELF OR RECEIVED ONE AS A GIFT, WE WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE ABLE TO KEEP IT SHINY AND BEAUTIFUL FOR YEARS TO COME! SO HERE ARE A FEW TIPS TO KEEP IN MIND WHILE WEARING AND TENDING TO YOUR NEW ACCESSORY:

  • AVOID CONTACT WITH PERFUMES, LOTIONS, AND HARSH CLEANING PRODUCTS. WHETHER YOUR PIECE IS 24K GOLD OR COPPER, THESE PRODUCTS ALWAYS DULL THE SHINE ON JEWELRY AND CAN EFFECT THE COATING ON COPPER PIECES.
  • DO NOT SHOWER, SWIM, OR SLEEP IN YOUR ITEMS. 
  • COPPER PIECES ARE COATED WITH AN INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH PROTECTIVE COATING TO AVOID TARNISHING. THESE PIECES CAN BE WIPED CLEAN WITH A DAMP CLOTH AFTER WEARING OR IF DIRTY.
  • 24K GOLD PIECES CAN BE CLEANED WITH A DAMP CLOTH AS WELL OR A JEWELERS CLOTH IF DESIRED. 
  • ALL PIECES ARE HANDMADE AND HAND-DIPPED SO THEIR LOOK WILL VARY FROM PIECE TO PIECE. SOME DIPS ARE DARKER, SHINIER, AND BRIGHTER THAN OTHERS.
  • COPPER WILL AGE OVER TIME NATURALLY, ESPECIALLY ON PIECES THAT ARE WORN FREQUENTLY AND EXPERIENCE MORE FRICTION. EVEN UNDER OUR CLEAR COAT, COPPER WILL DARKEN AND DEVELOP A NATURAL PATINA OVER TIME DUE TO FRICTION FROM WEAR. A ONE TIME COURTESY RE-DIP IS AVAILABLE. CONTACT FOR DETAILS. 
  • CLEAR COAT WILL PREVENT COPPER FROM RUBBING OFF ON SKIN DURING WEAR. YOU CAN REQUEST NO CLEAR COAT IF THAT EFFECT IS WANTED (MEDICINAL). 
  • EVERY PIECE COMES WITH A FRESH CUT 45" BLACK DEER SKIN LACE LEATHER CORD. AVOID LIGHT CLOTHING WITHIN THE FIRST FEW WEARS. THESE CORDS TAKE SOME TIME TO RID THEMSELVES OF EXCESS DYE. AFTER A WHILE, THE CORD WILL STOP SHEDDING AND/OR RUBBING OFF ON CLOTHING.
  • FOR PROTECTION AND STORAGE CONVENIENCE, WE PROVIDED A MUSLIN POUCH TO KEEP YOUR ITEM IN WHEN YOU ARE NOT WEARING IT.
