Cleaning and Care for your ib Jewelry

Caring for Sterling Silver
Sterling Silver reacts to differing ph levels of your personal body chemistry. Please take care not to expose your sterling ib design piece to chlorine, bleaching agents or chemicals.

Cleaning Sterling Silver
Your sterling silver can be polished with your ib designs polishing cloth. If a deeper cleaning is required you can use a 50/50 mild sudsy ammonia and warm water solution. Using a worn toothbrush can help clean more intricate designs. Rinse in water, dry, and polish with cloth.

You can also bring in your piece to get some special ib love and have your piece look like new for $4.

Caring for 14k and 18k Gold

Caring for Copper
Copper reacts to differing body chemistries, and over time your copper piece may patina and darken naturally in to a warm brown color. Keep your copper jewelry in a cool, dry place. Copper naturally darkens over time, and heat will cause natural patina to occur faster. Store jewelry in a resealable bag to keep air out. Exposure to various chemicals may also cause the copper to react.

Cleaning Copper
Make a paste of lemon juice and salt for concentrated cleaning. Rub with a soft cloth or toothbrush, then rinse and dry.

Caring for Gold Fill
Your gold filled jewelry is cared for in the same way as your other ib designs pieces. Chlorine and all heavy detergents and cleaning agents should be avoided. When you aren't wearing your pieces, you can store them in an air tight plastic bag.

Because of the levels of copper and silver, your pieces may tarnish a bit. This is largely because of the chemical reactions that occur when these filler metals come in excessive contact with pollution, perspiration, chlorine, and other such chemicals.

Caring for Gold Fill
Your polishing cloth can shine up your special piece to look like new.

Caring for Opal
Opals are among the most delicate gemstones commonly worn and require some special care. With a little knowledge and some common sense, your opal will stay in beautiful condition for many years to come.

There are two main reasons why opals are regarded as delicate. One reason is that they are a relatively soft gem (5.5 to 6.5), so they can be easily scratched, even by common household dust. Another reason is that they have significant water content -- typically about 5 to 6%. If an opal is kept in a very low humidity environment, it can dry out and crack. Due to their water content, opals are also sensitive to sudden changes in temperature. If you need to store your opal for a long period, it is a good idea to keep it sealed in a plastic bag with a damp piece of cotton to prevent dehydration.

Your opal should be cleaned gently with mild detergent in warm water with a soft brush or cloth. Bleach, chemicals and cleaners should always be avoided. Opals should never be cleaned in an ultrasonic cleaner because the intense vibrations created may cause cracking in your opal.

Enjoy your exquisite one of a kind opal!
