JEWELRY CARE GUIDE
YUCAMA jewelry is made using high quality gold-plating, silver-plating and natural materials such as shell beads. We use brass as our base metal and then plate with 18k gold (2 micron) or 925 silver. All our jewelry is treated to reduce the potential risks of allergy and are nickel-free.
Gold Plate/ Silver Plate
In order to preserve the natural brightness of your jewelry, it is not recommended to be worn when you are sleeping, swimming, or participating in sporting activities. We recommend that perfume, beauty products, alcohol, chemical products, lemon and other acid substances, salted water and chlorine should be avoided when wearing YUCAMA jewelry.
The plate tends to disappear over time. The speed at which this disappears depends on the way in which the jewelry is cared for. Loss of plate is a normal phenomenon resulting from wear and tear.
Silver jewelry oxidises naturally with air and humidity.
Occasional cleaning with a special cloth will keep the silver shiny and remove the oxidation.
In order to best avoid oxidation, keep your silver jewelry in a closed bag that is protected from the air.
