All J. HARDYMENT jewelry is sterling silver or brass plated in either 14k yellow gold, 14k rose gold, or white rhodium and requires special care.
Clean gold and rhodium plated silver on a regular basis with warm water and mild liquid soap to remove any lotions or oils, then rinse and dry with a soft cloth to avoid mineral residue from the water. If buffing is necessary, only use a soft and dry 100% cotton or microfiber polishing cloth gently. Never use harsh chemical cleaners on gold and rhodium plated jewelry as it can strip the finish. It is natural however for the jewelry’s plating to thin and to tarnish with time.
To help keep tarnishing at bay, we recommend storing your plated sterling silver jewelry in an airtight container or sealable bags after a gentle wash and clean. When traveling we recommend using a soft fabric bag, like the ones provided in your packaging to avoid abrasion with other hard surfaces.
Please be aware that your J. HARDYMENT jewelry will show signs of wear over time. However, if cared for, you can prolong the life and beauty of each piece while they become more unique and individual like you.
Please understand that J. HARDYMENT is not responsible for the maintenance of your jewelry and does not polish or re-plate purchased jewelry.
Thank you and we hope you enjoy your piece for a long time to come!
