Jewelry Care

Materials used in all Sahira Jewelry Design pieces are carefully selected to ensure the best quality possible. Jewelry by nature is delicate and needs to be cared for appropriately. However, here are a few recommendations to ensure that your jewelry will last forever.


Roll the bracelets individually on and off your arm. Do not try to put on, or take off, multiple pieces at once.

Store your jewelry pieces separately to avoid scratching. Jewelry pouches or boxes are recommended for proper storing.

Sterling silver will tarnish after some time and will need to be polished with a soft polish cloth. Do not use any abrasive cleaners. Do not attempt to polish vermeil.

 

Our Metals

As we carry a wide variety of metals and options, we want to be sure you are aware of the differences and how to care for them.



14k Gold Filled

  • Gold-Filled items are generally considered life-time products, and the gold layer will not quickly wear off. With gold-filled items, the solid gold layer is 50 to 100,000 times thicker than regular gold plating, and 17 to 25,000 times thicker than heavy gold electroplate.
  • Can be slept in and showered in, but to maintain bright gold color, try to avoid too much contact with water, lotion, perfume, etc. 
  • Extremely high quality metal.


Sterling Silver

  • Can be showered in, slept in, anything in! 
  • Can be cleaned with sterling silver cleaning solutions.
  • Extremely high quality metal.
  • Lasts FOREVER!


Gold and silver base metals

  • These metals will tarnish easily if showered in or in contact with lotions, perfumes etc. 
  • These are fun pieces of jewelry made more for costume wear and not for everyday wear.
  • Some people actually love the color they become after they tarnish (kind of an antique vintage look) and in that case, feel free to wear them everyday and let them tarnish.
  • To keep them tarnish free for longer, take them off when sleeping and showering and avoid contact with lotions, sweat, and perfumes
  • Copper and black base metal
  • These metals work well for everyday wear with less tarnishing.
  • Be sure to avoid lotions, perfumes, water etc. for long term color retention.
