So you've received your sparkles, how do you keep them shiny and new? Here are are a few of our best tips on how to show some love to your treasured VE collection.
First, a general rule of thumb: Treat your belongings with love and they'll love you back! Taking care of things you own makes them last longer and stay bright and shinier for you when you're ready to wear them. Caring for items from the day they're yours will not only make them last, but you'll love it for longer too!
POLISH IT PRETTY
You don't have to be a jeweller to have the right tools for cleaning jewelry. If you own a pair of glasses or sunglasses (from an eyewear shop) you're set! Eyeglass cloths are perfect for polishing the magnetic clasps on our Boho Cuff bracelets. Plated with White Gold or Gold finish, a wipe down with the cloth after each use helps to prevent tarnishing and keeps it looking shiny.
DRY LIKE OUR MARTINIS, PLEASE
Keeping your Boho Cuff and Wrap bracelet away from water and moisture is key. Water tarnishes any plated metals and no one wants that! Moisture is the culprit in giving leather an overly strong odour. Keep your pieces dry and out of the pool for extra-long wear.
KEEP ME SAFE
When your collection is growing it can get harder to find ways to store your sparkles. A jewelry box might not work for your look-at-me pieces but jewelry stands and storage boxes work great! Show off your jewelry and keep them tangle-free to make sure your delicately hand-made bracelets never loose a crystal, stone, or precious bead!
A BAGGIE GOES A LONG WAY
If you're just starting your collection of sparkles, we've got you! There's a reason we provide a bag with each bracelet. Our linen bags are specifically made to keep your sparkles away from harm. The linen keeps them dry, allows natural airflow and also protects them from the damaging sun! Store your sparkles in the pouch and line them up in a dresser or box for perfect organization.
Now that we've shared our ultimate sparkle tips, wrap your wraps, straighten your cuffs and get ready to ogle at your collection!
