Every piece of Katie Shanahan Jewellery is thoughtfully designed and delicately handcrafted. Follow these simple guidelines to ensure your jewellery will always stay beautiful.
Apply all beauty products, such as perfume, hairspray or deodorant, before putting on your jewellery. Jewellery should be removed prior to swimming or doing household chores which involve the use of abrasive cleaners or chemicals.
Wipe your jewellery gently with a soft cloth after you have worn it. Storing silver jewellery in a Ziploc bag limits the tarnishing process. If you would like to restore your jewellery’s lustrous finish, a soft brush (such as a toothbrush) and a mild detergent will easily and swiftly remove any signs of tarnish. Then rinse the piece and set it on a paper towel to dry. You can also use a silver polishing cloth, which is available from most jewellers. Silver dipping solutions are also helpful for detailed pieces. Please avoid wearing your jewellery in natural hot springs, as silver tarnishes a great deal when exposed to salty air and products containing sulfur. (For Oxidized Silver: Excessive cleaning may remove its finish. Please avoid ultrasonic cleaning or any form of liquid cleaning.)
Gold and Platinum:
Wipe your jewellery gently with a soft cloth after you have worn it and store it in a cool, dry place. We recommend a professional ultrasonic cleaning service at your local jeweller for a much deeper cleaning.
Diamonds and Other Gemstones:
Wipe your jewellery gently with a soft cloth after you have worn it. Do not store your diamond jewellery next to other jewellery pieces as this may lead to unsightly scratches. We recommend a professional ultrasonic cleaning service at your local jeweller for a much deeper cleaning.
