Silver - Each Nootka piece is handcrafted locally in Stockholm, made from recycled 925 sterling silver. 925 sterling silver naturally oxidises over time due to different reasons like contact with liquids, when exposed to air and substances from the skin. Fortunately this is not a permanent state and you can always remove the oxidation. To maintain the finish, use a clean cotton cloth and mild dish detergent mixed with water, apply the mix to the cloth and simply rub the jewelry in one direction. If a more throughout touch-up is needed, ask a local goldsmith to clean it for you. Also note that wearing your Nootka piece often can actually prevent tarnishing of the silver, so we recommend you to enjoy your jewelry everyday.
Gold - Each Nootka piece is handcrafted locally in Stockholm, made from recycled 925 sterling silver with 18ct gold plating. Even though the gold plating is thick, kindly note that with time the plating can wear off. This is normal and not a reason for a claim. Gently touch-up your piece using a clean cotton cloth without chemicals. We recommend avoiding contact with any kind of liquid, removing your jewelry in water or during sports and to store your jewelry in a dry room in the pouch that comes with your order.
With delicate care you can enjoy your Nootka jewelry year after year.
