DJAAFAR jewellery is generally made from 925 Sterling Silver. On some pieces we apply various finishes such as leather and enamel. We also offer a range of products that are plated in yellow gold, rose gold and ruthenium. Correct and regular care can prolong the durability of the jewellery.
To ensure you enjoy your precious and beautiful jewellery for as long as possible, you should follow a few basic rules:
GENERAL CARE INSTRUCTION
- Jewellery should preferably not be worn while working in the house or garden or during sports. This particularly applies to rings.
- Jewellery should not be worn while swimming in salt or chlorinated water or while bathing, showering or in a sauna. This particularly applies to threads, leather finishes, enamelled and plated jewellery.
- Jewellery should be taken off before going to bed and prior to showering.
- Perfume, hairspray and creams can remove the sheen and the brilliance of the jewellery. For this reason, it is advisable to use perfume, hairspray and other cosmetics before putting on the jewellery.
- Every person’s skin type is different, and so this can also effect your Jewellery life. The acid in our skin can speed up the tarnishing process and damage gemstones such as pearls, but this will differ from person to person.
- Generally jewellery must not be exposed to sunlight. The UV radiation in sunlight might cause damage. This particularly applies to enamelled and coloured jewellery.
Soap, crème and make-up residues can be removed using an ultrasound device. The ultrasound device should not contain aggressive cleaning agents. For best results, use water and a neutral detergent. As a general rule, we highly recommend to avoid cleaning in a silver dipping bath. Silver or Gold dipping baths have aggressive chemical agents that will tarnish enamel surfaces and potentially break them down, damage stones and cause for plating to erode.
It is preferable to use a special jewellery cleaning cloth instead. To clean DJAAFAR jewellery, rub the surface gently with a jewellery cleaning cloth. Make sure not to put too much pressure while rubbing. Remember to be extra gentle on enameled and plated pieces.
For jewellery pieces with threads and leather (snakeskin or Kankaroo skin) , clean the jewellery piece with a jewellery cleaning cloth. Avoid any contact with water, with the threads and leather.
- Fine chains and longer necklaces should be suspended when not being worn to keep them from tangling.
- When not being worn, it is best to keep jewellery in a zip locked plastic bag. This will slow down the effects of oxidation, which is due to environment exposure.
- Store jewellery separately, so that it does not scratch or rub against each other. You can also use the original packaging box for storage.
