JEWELRY CARE

Caring for your BILYFER jewelry will help ensure its beauty, luster, and longevity. Here are some helpful tips from us on how to care for and maintain your BILYFER jewelry.
Jewelry can tarnish over time when exposed to the open air. Tarnishing is a natural process that can be cleaned. All BILYFER jewelry is treated with an anti-tarnish coating to help protect against tarnishing, but it is still important you follow our care instructions.

We recommend that customers remove jewelry before going to bed or participating in physical activity. Exposure to certain harsh chemicals or environments will result in compromising the integrity of your jewelry. This includes, but is not limited to the following: perspiration, perfumes, cleaning agents, chlorine, salt water, and silver polish.

Cleaning your jewelry

  • Pour a small amount of mild soap into lukewarm water and use a small, soft toothbrush to clean your jewelry. Toothbrushes are ideal for cleaning jewelry with intricate details, which can otherwise be difficult to clean. If the dirt is hard to remove, soak the jewelry in clean water. IMPORTANT: gold plated jewelry requires more care. Using your toothbrush very intensely may cause the gold plating to fade away, therefore it is very important that you do this process very carefully to avoid the gold plating from wearing away.
  • A silver-polishing cloth is a great tool to make your sterling silver jewelry shine again if the pieces have become dull. However, it will not remove scratches.

How to store your jewelry

Jewelry should be stored away from natural sunlight and heat, in a protective jewelry box or a tarnish-resistant pouch. It can also be stored in a plastic zip lock bag made of polyethylene. Never use polyvinyl plastic bags, such as a trash can liners as they contain sulfur compounds or rubber containers which will make sterling silver tarnish faster and possibly turn black. Do not store your jewelry in the bathroom or any humid spots.

Please note that our BILYFER boxes are not made for long-term storage as they are not airtight and tarnishing will occur over time.
