Care Instructions

Care Instructions:
Sterling silver is a combination of silver and other metals. The small percent of other metals that are found in sterling silver are usually what oxidize and cause the tarnishing. This process of oxidization is accelerated in areas of high humidity and contact with chemicals found in materials like makeup, hairspray, lotion and the likes.

For best maintenance, avoid close contact with extremely hot water or harsh chemicals. Be sure to remove the nose ring/stud every few days to wipe it clean; using water and soap to clean it is enough. Over time, the ring may change colours, however, the metal will never be harmful to your skin. The part of the ring that is directly touching the flesh in your nose piercing hole may darken simply because the sweat on your skin raises the acidity of the skin, which usually leads to darkening the silver. Again, it is not harmful to your skin.

TIP: Avoid spinning/turning the nose ring around your piercing hole. It would be best to keep the ring in the same position as you first put it in. If/when you take it out and then put it back in, make sure it is positioned the same way as you had it in before taking it out. The part of the ring touching the flesh in your piercing hole, should be the ONLY part encircled by the piercing hole.

The nose ring/stud may be left out without any worries of fading colours or rusting, but storing it away in the jewellery pouch will always be the greater option!
