First, let us say that we do encourage you to embrace the natural patina that comes with everyday wear. However, as a general rule jewelry should be kept clean and dry as much as possible, and stored in the pouch provided when not being worn. 

Many of our pieces contain stainless steel which if scratched or exposed to harsh chemicals could compromise the surface finish and prematurely age your jewelry.  You should take care to avoid chemicals such as cleaning products coming in contact with your jewelry.  It is not recommended to swim or bathe while wearing your jewelry. 

There are several options for cleaning your jewelery.  You can contact a local jeweler who can perform this service, you can have it cleaned by us, or you can clean it yourself.  If you would like us to professionally clean your piece, please email our customer service for more information.  If you prefer the DIY (do it yourself) approach, you can simply soak the piece in very warm mild soapy water and gently rub the piece with a soft cotton cloth. Jewelry with precious and semi-precious stones would greatly benefit from an annual professional cleaning.  If you have any questions please contact us directly at: info@philipcrangi.com
