Katia Designs is designed to last for many years to come but all jewelry will naturally tarnish and look dull if you do not take adequate care of your pieces. The majority of the pieces are crafted in brass and plated to create the silver or gold finish. Exposure to the elements will eat away at the finish resulting in a more aged look. Here are a few steps to keep your pieces looking like the day you received them! All of our pieces are proudly nickel-free.
General Care Instructions
Storage: When taking off your jewelry at night, we are all tempted to leave our pieces where we won't forget to put them back on which is usually in our bathrooms. Bathrooms are the most humid area in our homes so to keep your pieces looking like new, store them in a dry place like a closet. We include a cloth pouch with each piece which is a great way to store your pieces when you aren't wearing them.
Keep it dry! We all love a good sweat sesh - but our jewelry does not! Sweat also breaks down the finishing coat quicker so if you are heading to that spin or hot yoga class, make sure to take off your Katia Design pieces before you do! Keeping your pieces dry also means keeping them out of water. We do not recommend showering, bathing or swimming in our pieces.
