Junk Jewels Care Guide

Our pieces are made from plated metals, remember they are not solid gold, so they require a little extra TLC to keep them looking their best for as long as possible.

 

Our jewels have a brass base at their core, with a thick plate of shiny 14k gold, 14k rose-gold or silver on top, this material allows us to design beautiful premium styles without the premium price tag!

 

It’s important to remember that plated brass will unfortunately tarnish over time, but don’t despair, we have a few easy tips to ensure your jewels the longevity they deserve, so you can keep wearing them time and time again.

 

❤ How to care for your Junk Jewels pieces ❤

 

  • Sweat, water and cosmetics are a no-go for your jewellery! Exposing your jewels to these elements will cause them to tarnish, make sure you remove your pieces before exercising, swimming or showering.

  • Store your jewels in their original box or pouch, in a cool dry place, this is the best way to keep them from being scratched or damaged when not worn!

  • Avoid using creams or spraying perfume directly onto your jewels, this will accelerate the tarnishing process. When using perfume, we advise applying your scent first, and putting on your jewels later as the last step before you go out.

  • Give your pieces some love! For a nice polished finish use a soft cloth or eyeglasses cleaning cloth - either way, both work wonders.
