Jewelry Care

How do I care for my Ten Chi jewelry?

Most of Ten Chi's jewelry pieces are made of high quality materials like 925 sterling silver and are finished with a high quality plating. The durability of these plated jewelry depends on various factors. Careful handling and proper care are particularly important. Please follow our care instructions to make sure you treat your jewelry right. Also, the durability of gold plated jewelry varies from person to person. The skin’s natural salt content and the moisture of the skin influence the durability of jewelry. With good care and a careful handling you can have many years of joy with your gold plated jewelry pieces.

Each piece is unique and has its own individual charm and character and there might be slight variations in the colour, size and texture of different jewelry pieces. Also we use natural gemstones that naturally have small differences due to their origin. It is also normal that the plating of these natural stones varies a little from piece to piece.

Caring for gold plated jewelry

Please follow our cleaning instructions to prevent gold plated jewelry from tarnishing. Please avoid any contact with chemicals, such as perfume, lotions, cosmetics, cleansers, etc. We also recommend that you do not wear your jewelry while you are sleeping or working out. Also, you should avoid any contact with water so that you can enjoy your jewelry for a long time! 

To clean gold plated jewelry pieces, use a clean soft cloth to wipe them. (Do not use rough cloths like microfibre!) If your jewelry is really stained, you can also use a bit of water with a small amount of mild dishwashing liquid. Do not leave your jewelry in the water to soak but immediately dry it with a soft and clean cloth.

Caring for sterling silver jewelry

Sterling silver jewelry pieces eventually tarnish when they get in contact with air. This is a completely normal process. You can either clean them with a silver cleaning cloth or with a soft toothbrush and a little bit of mild dishwashing liquid. Use a soft clean cloth to wipe them afterwards.

We recommend storing your jewelry at a dry and cool place to prevent tarnishing and discolouration.
