These simple tips will help keep your Chupi piece looking its very best. A gentle clean with a soft 100% cotton cloth is ideal for maintaining your jewellery's shine. Try to not wear your jewellery in the shower or pool as the chlorine will tarnish it. Apply any perfume, body lotion or creams and let dry before you put on your jewellery. For the best care, store your jewellery in a little airtight bag in the box it came in when not being worn to minimise tarnish. To clean your jewellery grab a small bowl, pour in hot water, some gentle soap and stir. Place your jewellery in the solution for 1 minute, rinse with clean water, then polish with a soft 100% cotton cloth and pat completely dry. Sterling silver pieces can be cleaned using any of the commercially available solutions, we prefer the non chemical ones. Gold fill refers to a process in which gold is mechanically bonded to a base metal, producing a thicker layer than even the heaviest gold plating. Our chain, clasps & ear hooks are all gold filled. Our gold plated pieces are heavily plated in 18k gold over solid sterling silver. The gold layer will eventually wear off. When it does, it can be re-plated at a nominal cost through any jewellers or we would be happy to do it for you. If your piece breaks or is damaged, do get in touch with us. We want you to be very happy with your Chupi piece.
