Jewelry Care

When not being worn, store jewelry in a small ziplock bag, if possible, or a closed jewelry box to avoid tarnish. Remove jewelry before showering, swimming, exercising or applying any moisturizers or fragrances.

To clean your non-patina treated jewelry, soak your jewelry in warm soapy water for a few minutes before rubbing gently with a soft toothbrush.  

Please do not dip jewelry with soft stones (pearls, turquoise, opals, corals, lapis (for example) in silver dip, or an ultrasonic cleaner. The chemicals can remove the polish on these stones.

If the quality of a patina or oxidation is reduced over time due to normal wear, Sudha will re- patina/re-oxidize the piece free of charge. If the quality of a patina or oxidation is reduced due to avoidable actions, Sudha may charge a small fee, if necessary. All shipping costs are the responsibility of the buyer.

Pearls require extra care. Pearls should be worn AFTER applying make up, moisturizer or fragrance. Store pearls in a soft bag, away from other jewelry items.

To clean pearl jewelry, mix a solution of lukewarm water and a few drops of mild detergent or dish soap. Water that is too hot or too cold may damage the surface of the pearls, so double-check the temperature before using it on the jewelry. Dip a soft, clean cloth into the water and gently wipe down the pearls.
