Taking Care of your Olmox Silver Jewelry

As filigree jewelry is intricately crafted, proper care must be taken to keep it clean and shiny. Please follow these simple steps for your sterling silver*

Warning: Yellow, white, or rose gold plated jewelry should NOT be subjected to this cleaning procedure.

  1. Pour a cup of water into a container
  2. Choose a mild soap of your preference, that doesn’t contain chlorine (it could be your hand liquid soap or dish liquid soap).
  3. Dip an old toothbrush or brass wire brush (free from Olmox) into your container of water and then add a few drops of soap directly to the brush.
  4. Start scrubbing all the surfaces of the pieces with the brush. Be sure to apply good pressure to get the bristles in the crevasses and holes of the filigree (you should see lots of foam). 
  5. Rinse jewelry under fresh warm running water to remove soap. Shake off excess water.
  6. Use a clean towel to dry the jewelry. 

Enjoy your shiny clean jewelry!

 When your pieces need deep cleaning follow these steps:

  1. Heat water in a small pot or saucepan and add a few drops of your favorite mild soap. Hand soap, dish soap, chlorine-free detergent or baking soda. Mix well to create some foam on top of the water.
  2. Add jewelry and let stand for 15 minutes in low heat, until it boils. If the piece has a gemstone, please do not boil it, just brush it.
  3. Dip a toothbrush or a brass wire brush into the water to wet. Remove the piece of jewelry from the saucepan and scrube all surfaces with the brush. Be sure to apply good pressure to get the bristles in the crevasses and holes of the filigree, you are going to see lots of foam. 
  4. Rinse jewelry under fresh warm running water to remove soap. Shake off excess water.
  5. Use a clean towel to dry the pieces.

MORE TIPS

-Keep the jewelry in their individual bags or hung to avoid entanglement with itself or with other jewelry.

- Avoid hard blows or falls to keep the filigree intact.

-Prevent early tarnish of your jewelry by avoiding direct contact with perfumes, creams, lotions, lacquers, dyes, sea water and pool water.

- Wash your jewelry with a hard toothbrush and toothpaste (preferably one which contains backing soda) to maintain their shine.-Do not expose to chemicals, even during housework. Exposure to chemicals can tarnish silver. Although damage is not usually irreparable, it’s better to be safe!

-If applying make-up, remove jewelry, and put on again only after you’re done applying make-up and washing your hands.

-Perfumes – never put silver jewelry in contact with perfumes. As with make-up, apply perfume first, then wash your hands and put on your jewelry.

-While filigree jewelry is not fragile, it does not mean that you should do any rough work while wearing it. Take your rings, bracelets, etc. off before doing any heavy work.

-Tarnishing will also occur if you put your silver filigree in contact with salt- or chlorinated water.
