How do I care for my jewelry?
To keep your viv&ingrid jewelry looking its best, we recommend these easy steps:
- Store each piece separately in its own fabric pouch (included with every purchase)
- Store in a cool, dry place
- Do not store near burning candles
- Do not apply perfume, hair products or any other toiletries while wearing
- Do not allow contact with water or chemicals
- Remove jewelry before sleeping
Due to the delicate nature of our designs, natural wear may occur during the life of each piece. Tarnishing is a natural process that happens when sterling silver or 14k gold fill comes into contact with sulfur in the air. It is best and easiest to clean tarnished metals in the first stages, before it gets too black. Mild tarnish can be cleaned with a gentle jewelry polishing cloth at home or dipped into a liquid silver polish. **Carefully read all instructions on the container, as some stones can be damaged by liquid polish.
Alternatively, we are happy to polish your viv&ingrid pieces and repair normal wear. For more information, read the section below titled "What is viv&ingrid's repair policy?".
