Jesmonite is easy to care for using our top tips!

  • Always store your jewellery in a pouch or box.

  • Clean gently with a soft cloth. It is best not to sleep, shower or exercise whilst wearing your jewellery.

  • Although jesmonite it a hardy material, avoid dropping your jewellery onto hard surfaces as the impact can weaken or break the piece.

  • Sprays and creams including soap, perfume, moisturiser and suncream can stain the surface and damage the metal components, particularly brass, so it is best to remove your jewellery before using any of these products.

- A top tip for getting the shiny surface of the black jesmonite back, is to buff a tiny amount of vaseline onto the surface with a clean fingertip and wipe any excess off with a cloth.



Interesting fact: pure water by itself doesn't damage sterling silver, but most of the water we're exposed to in our daily lives is not purified. Chemicals and contaminants in the water can result in tarnished and dull-looking silver, so it's best to know what's what when it comes to water. 

  • Shower. It's not a great idea to shower with your jewelry on, but once in a while isn't going to do any lasting damage. Just make sure to dry it after.

  • Swimming Pool. Take your silver off. Chlorine is a pretty harsh chemical, so if you accidentally forget to remove your silver jewelry before hopping in, make sure to rinse and clean it afterward. 

  • Hot Tub. Same idea as the swimming pool, but there's even more chlorine in the hot tub and the heat can accelerate the chemical reaction. 

  • Hot Springs. The sulfur in natural hot springs will wreak havoc on your silver. Unless you're going for that "dark oxidized" look, avoid at all costs. 

  • Bonus Tip: Chemicals in lotions and perfumes can also cause your jewelry to tarnish. Apply them first, let them dry, and then put your jewelry on. This alone can make a HUGE difference in your silver's luster.
