Q:How should I care for my Turquoise jewelry ?
A: Your turquoise jewelry can withstand daily wear but it's essential not to have them on during strenuous activities and that you remove them during hand washing. Avoid exposing them to heat or direct sunlight when not worn. Also make sure not to have them on while applying lotion ( advice also applicable to the leather bracelets). Since they are untreated they would absorb the oils which would alter the color of the stone.
They should be the last thing you put on in the morning and the first thing you put away at night.
It's also good practice to wipe them with a soft cloth and to put them away in your Ciel Turquoise pouches to prevent your jewelry from scratching one another.
Turquoise jewelry well cared for should last you a lifetime.
Q: Is the patina on the jewelry permanent?
A: Most Ciel Turquoise items feature an antique patina. It is achieved by changing the color of the surface of sterling silver. It is not permanent , so if subject to scratches or water it can diminish. The best way to preserve the finish is to avoid exposing the item to water, lotions and not wear during strenuous activity.
Please note that items featuring Turquoise should never be exposed to water, or lotions.
