Loved by Elli Jewellery is hand manufactured using high quality sterling silver and brass.
As each item is handforged - and therefore unique - slight variations can be expected.
Silver and brass pieces are all high polished so they are shiny when you get them. Over time, however, the metal can tarnish due to exposure to oxygen and skin acidity.
To prevent this process don't apply lotions or perfume whilst wearing your jewellery and store it in an airtight container or bag.
To clean your solid brass or silver jewellery use the polishing cloth provided. Alternatively use a soft brush, warm water with dishwashing liquid or a jewellery cleaning product, then rinse and dry with a soft cloth. As none of Loved by Elli pieces are plated, you can clean your jewellery with a jewellery cleaner or cloth without worrying about the surface wearing down.
A polishing cloth might be a better option for jewellery with pendants made out of other material (such as twine) to avoid damages or discolouration. It is however recommended to clean these pieces carefully - even with a cloth - to prevent stains.
Please remember that jewellery in general is very precious and delicate (especially fine chains) and needs to be taken care of every time you wear it!
