Entretien des pierres


Certains de mes bijoux sont en acier inoxydable doré à l'or fin, d'autres en plaqué OR 3 microns. 


What is stainless steel? 


Stainless steel jewelry is light and chic, solid, unalterable and anti-allergenic.


L’absence de nickel et sa matière particulière ne provoque que très rarement des réactions. 


Qu'est ce que le plaqué OR 3 microns ? 


It is an alloy of common metals, generally brass, covered with gold (between 14 and 18 carats) using an electrical or chemical process, on a layer with a minimum thickness of 3 microns.


More affordable than gold, gold-plated jewelry does not require less attention.


Although it only happens sometimes, spots may appear and the color may fade over time. What could be more distressing than having to part with a jewel not because you no longer love it but because it is damaged! 

To restore luster and shine to your stainless steel or gold-plated jewellery, or remove a stain from it, here are a few tips.


  1. Task processing:  


Our good old baking soda 


Our grandmothers' favorite ingredient: dip your jewelry in moistened baking soda.

Do not hesitate to rub with a cloth for a better result.


   2. Cleaning :


The essential white vinegar 


All you have to do is rub your jewelry with a cloth soaked in white vinegar and you're done. You can also soak them in a solution of water and white vinegar and leave to act for two hours before rinsing with clean water (1/4 vinegar to 3/4 is generally enough, depending on the state of your jewelry).


A cotton ball or a soft microfiber cloth will also be effective in removing dust and potential traces. The latter also makes it possible to bring shine to the metal. 


If you wish to further slow the oxidation process, you should handle your components with gloves and avoid contact with perfumes, skin oils and lotions.
You should also store them in a cool, dry place.


Among the other "harmful" substances, we also find oil, nail polish, nail polish remover, lacquer, but also sweat. It's not always easy, but remember to separate  from your jewelry before a workout.


If you need a major cleaning and to remove the dull effect, soak your jewel for a few minutes in hot soapy water and rub it with a soft brush. Avoid using overly abrasive sponges and jewelry cleaners or anti-bacterial soaps which may contain harmful components.


Finally, to avoid scratches and knots, wrap your jewelry in pouches or in individual boxes.


However, keep in mind that these jewels are not made of 18-carat GOLD, so you have to "pamper" them day by day.
