Your OUAW piece and every piece of fine jewelry will stay beautiful longer if cared for. Air pollutants, dust, perspiration, perfumes, and other natural elements can dull the appearance of precious metals. Care recommendations to help preserve all your jewelry:

  • Store your jewelry in the box it was delivered in or in a soft jewelry pouch. When in storage, arrange chains in loop shapes to avoid damage.
  • Don’t sleep with your jewelry on.
  • Never force or pull chains. 
  • After use, gently wipe every piece with a soft cloth to remove make-up residue or oils from your skin. Always go easy. 
  • Avoid wearing jewelry in a swimming pool, hot tub, sauna or steam room. 
  • Never ever wear any type of jewelry in natural hot springs, as found in volcanic areas.

 

Specific care advice for the AKIN Collection (sand behind sapphire glass)

  • Take off your sand locket before contact with water to avoid water getting into the sand. It’s water-resilient to everyday use and to light rain but NOT waterproof.
  • Do NOT dip the jewelry pendant, as the liquid can penetrate the locket.
