To ensure that your jewelry continues to look its best, it should be the last thing that you put on (following lotion, perfume and makeup), and the first thing you take off. Store your jewelry in an airtight place when not in use. The recycled jewelry box or 100% virgin American cotton bag that comes with your jewelry is a great way to protect it from damage and loss when not in use, however we also recommend storing your silver jewelry in a plastic, airtight bag to help prevent tarnish. Avoid getting natural materials wet. Our natural materials such as quills, feathers and leather are especially delicate, and you should take special care to avoid contact with liquids of any sort.
Sterling Silver has the tendency to tarnish rapidly, however, wearing your silver jewelry often is the best way to prevent tarnish from building up. If your jewelry does tarnish, please clean it gently with a non-abrasive silver polish, taking care to avoid damaging the other materials also used in your piece.
Each oxidized piece of KYYOTE jewelry is skillfully oxidized by hand. Color may vary amongst oxidized pieces, and natural wear and some fading on oxidized sterling silver is normal. Oxidation is a treatment that will slowly wear off of flat surfaces over time, creating a lovely one-of-a-kind aged appearance that accentuates the details and craftsmanship of your adornment.
If you wish to have your jewelry repaired, KYYOTE offers this service for a nominal fee. Please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject title REPAIR, and we can discuss your options.
