Jewellery Care Guide
UglyBijoux pieces are composed of intricate details and delicate components that require gentle care and treatment. In order to keep their sparkles, we recommend treating them like special objects––because they are!
In general, wear your jewellery last & remove them first. Perfume, lotions, and tanning products may tarnish and affect your jewellery’s radiance over time.
Below is a more detailed guideline to care for your UglyBijoux based on their specific materials.
925 Sterling Silver
Some UglyBijoux pieces are made with 925 sterling silver chains, pendants, and/or clasps. This material is prone to tarnishing when not taken care of properly. Make sure to store your jewellery in an airtight container and place it in a cool, dark, and dry place.
When needed, soak and brush gently with a soap and water mixture. Our sterling silver pieces are coated in anti-tarnish with a shiny finishing polish. This layer may get worn over time (2 years on average) depending on how much wear your jewellery took.
We offer a re-polish of your jewellery to give it a new life and shine. Please note that there will be a fee for this service. Contact us for details!
The freshwater pearls that we use are hand strung one by one to keep their lustre and beauty. They are delicate natural products and need to be cared for gently.
- Store your pearls separately in the velvet pouch it comes in. They are best kept in a cool, dry place.
- Wipe them after each wear using a gentle microfibre cloth to remove any excess oils or makeup from your pearls.
- Avoid wearing your pearls in water to ensure the silk threading remains intact. It’s recommended to remove any jewellery pieces before swimming or showering as the moisture may damage the lustre of your pearls.
- Check the stringing. UglyBijoux pearl necklaces are hand-strung in silk thread one by one using a technique that is considered best to keep your freshwater pearls fresh. The stringing may get worn over time and depending on the frequency of wear, they may need to be restrung (around 24 months). Don’t hesitate to contact us for details.
Stainless Steel Beads & Chains
Stainless steel is known for its strength and durability to hold daily wear better than most other metals. They’re easy to care for but make sure to take your jewellery off and wipe them dry after each wear.
