The right care for your jewelry
Quality is not the only factor that promises your jewelry a long life. Because with the right care, you not only have something of it for a very long time, but also keep it particularly beautiful.
Knowledge makes it shine
Caring for your products properly doesn't have to be complicated or time-consuming. The only thing you should know is how best to clean which product. We use different materials: brass, sterling silver or gold plated pieces. Every material behaves differently and therefore needs different care routines.
Proper storage preserves jewelry
All three materials have one thing in common: They are happy when they are stored correctly. Jewelry boxes may be a bit dated, but they do the job. And that's wonderful: NOOE jewelery is also best stored on a soft surface. Whether it has to be a box or a cloth in which the jewelery is wrapped - that's entirely up to you.
Brass is a durable alloy of copper and zinc and is identified by its distinctive, slightly darker, golden hue. Since it does not cause allergic reactions, it is very popular in jewelry production. Very rarely (in only 5 cases out of 100) does brass leave discolorations on the skin.
Brass is shiny and clear. Only if it is not worn for a while can it oxidize and then appear dull and hardly shiny. What is missing is the friction - whether with skin, clothing or something else. To bring the brass back to its full shine, all you have to do is take a toothbrush and some toothpaste and polish your piece of jewelry up again.
925 sterling silver is easily recognized by its rich white colour. This material is also characterized by the qualities of being waterproof, anti-allergenic and durable. However, sterling silver can discolor over time as it reacts with the hydrogen sulfide in the air. If your products are slightly tarnished, you can easily clean them.
You have to go to the kitchen for that, because everything should be there. Fill a cup halfway with water and add 1-2 drops of dish soap. You can now clean your jewelry with a soft cloth and then dry it with another cloth. Your jewelry should now shine like new again. If the silver is already discolored, a chemical silver bath is the best solution.
Part of our collections is plated. The pieces are plated with either 14k or 18k gold. In contrast to gilding, where the material is only coated with a fine layer of gold, the extra thick coating of the plating ensures that the color stays with you for a long time. In addition, the pieces are resistant to water or sweat.
These products can also be cleaned with household products. You can rub the plated pieces with baking soda or baking soda and a soft cloth. Then wash under warm water and dry and polish with a dry, also soft cloth.
