Care Guide

PRODUCT CARE

Brookland jewelry is meticulously handcrafted quality jewelry produced in New York City.  Treating your jewelry kindly will help ensure its original condition.  Between wearings, we recommend that you place your silver or gold jewelry in a Brookland box or pouch.

Below are some tips to help you safeguard your Brookland Jewelry.

Sterling Silver Jewelry

Sterling silver require special care to preserve its appearance and longevity.  Sterling silver tarnishes when exposed to salty air, chlorine, sulfur, humidity, perspiration, cosmetics, household bleach and strong chemicals.

We recommend removing your jewelry when engaging in the following activities:

  • Household and outdoor chores
  • Showering, bathing or swimming in pools, hot tubs, hot springs and the ocean
  • Using lotion, hair products, fragrances and other cosmetics
  • Exercising at the gym or during contact sports
  • Preparing meals

How to clean sterling silver:

  • Apply a small amount of silver cleaner to a soft cloth
  • Gently rub the silver with the cloth several times
  • Rinse the silver thoroughly in warm water
  • Blot dry and shine with a silver polishing cloth or mitts.  This will remove the tarnish and restore shine.
  • Special consideration: an “oxidized” finish is the deliberate blackening of crevices in the ornamentation of the silver jewelry to make its decorative details stand out more clearly.  Take care as this finish can be removed by overzealous cleaning and polishing

Gold Jewelry

To preserve the luster of your 14K or 18K gold jewelry, avoid exposure to household bleach and other cleaning products, which will quickly cause gold to discolor and possibly disintegrate.

We recommend removing your jewelry when engaging in the following activities:

  • Household and outdoor chores
  • Showering, bathing or swimming in pools, hot tubs, hot springs and the ocean
  • Using lotion, hair products, fragrances and other cosmetics
  • Exercising at the gym or during contact sports
  • Preparing meals

How to clean gold jewelry:

  • Place your gold jewelry into a jewelry cleaning solution
  • After two minutes, use a pair of tweezers to remove your jewelry from the solution
  • Gently clean behind any stone settings and in between crevices with a soft bristle brush to remove any debris
  • Rinse, blot dry and shine your gold jewelry with a polishing cloth
