Frequently Asked Questions

How to care for your pendant necklace

Gold vermeil pendants:

It's a good idea to give your most-worn jewelry a nice cleaning every few weeks. Avoid the harsh jewelry cleaners and polishing liquids, and instead go for a solution of warm water and basic soap (you don't want to use antibacterial soap as it contains chemicals that can tarnish gold-plating). Soak your pendants in the solution for a couple of minutes to loosen up any dirt and residue, and then carefully wipe them down with a soft cloth to restore shine. We do not recommend using a jewelry brush to clean gold vermeil.

Sterling silver pendants:

Mix a solution of warm water and gentle soap and, with a very soft bristled tooth brush, gently clean your enamel pendant. Avoid harsh chemicals, detergents, and chlorine, as these might fade the enamel. 

If your sterling silver pendant has lost its shine and luster, try soaking it in a gentle solution of ½ cup of white vinegar and 2 tablespoons of baking soda. Allow your pendant to sit for two or three hours, and then remove it and rinse with cold water. 

How to care for your enamel pin 

Gently brush your enamel pin with a very soft bristled toothbrush in a solution of warm soap water solution.

How to wash your t-shirt or mask

Hot water and dyers will cause the most shrinkage with cotton apparel. To avoid shrinkage, we recommend washing your t-shirts in cold water and hung to air dry. 

The CDC recommends washing your mask after each use. You can wash mask along with your regular laundry — with standard laundry detergent and lukewarm water. To avoid shrinkage, we recommend air drying.
