Simply Eccentric jewelleries are made of carefully selected materials. Although they are durable, the materials and crystals we use are sometimes sensitive to their environment. To keep them in time, please follow these recommendations: remove the jewellery before any activity that could cause shocks and damage. Protect parts from prolonged exposure to sources of moisture, heat, or strong light. Avoid prolonged contact with water, alcohol, grease, or abrasives. When not wearing jewellery, keep it in the original Simply Eccentric case / box to prevent any rubbing or scratching. If necessary, clean the jewellery using a soft, dry cloth.
Avoid leaving your jewellery on chemically treated surfaces or on wood which can stain or speed up the tarnishing process.
Ensure that they of soft cloth like chintz, velvet or cotton. Avoid linen, net, georgette and jersey. This is the best way to protect your jewellery from external elements. If not, you can also put them in wooden boxes, their walls lined with foam and lay them on soft cotton wool.
Chalk absorbs moisture, or if you find that dusty, invest in some dehumidifiers or silica packs.
