General Care

  • Keep jewelry away from household cleaners and chlorine.

  • When not wearing your jewelry, store each piece in its own Ziploc® or soft fabric bag. Keep in a dark place. This reduces tarnish, keeps softer metals from being scratched, and preserves colored rings longer. Even though the cleaning methods below are pretty gentle, it’s best to not have to clean your jewelry more often than you need to.

  • Always handle your jewelry gently. Remember that most chainmaille links are not soldered closed, and can therefore be pulled open. Treat your chainmaille just as you would handle a delicate pearl necklace or crystal bracelet.

  • Your jewelry can pick up dirt, oil, and even odors. To clean most metals (sterling silver, stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, niobium, and gold-fill); soak jewelry in soapy water (use non-lotion dishwashing soap) for several minutes. Then lather with soap and gently but briskly rub the jewelry between your palms. Rinse with warm water and let air dry, or use a blow dryer on lowest and coolest setting.

  • Refer to the guidelines below for additional care and cleaning details for specific metals.

  • Hot water and air will cause tarnish to return to your freshly cleaned piece so only use cold water and air when cleaning pieces made from copper, jewelry brass or silver.
