Q: Will this jewelry piece turn my skin green?
A: Many people have a sensitivity to metals such as Copper, Brass, and (on rare occasions) even Sterling Silver coming into contact with their skin which causes the skin to turn green. If you have experienced this at any point, please consider making a note of this in the "special instructions for seller" at the checkout when purchasing your jewelry piece. We will work with your request free of charge, whether it be Copper, Brass, or Sterling Silver, because we understand how frustrating it can be to find the perfect jewelry essential only to have it turn your skin green.
Q: Will my jewelry piece tarnish over time?
A: Yes, unless you specifically make a note that you do not want it to tarnish. At Cinta's Designs, we embrace the idea that every jewelry piece has its own story and continues to tell it over time through the new characteristics it takes on. However, we know that not everyone cares for this and that is okay! If you do not want your piece to tarnish over time, please consider making a note of this in the "special instructions for seller" at the checkout when purchasing your jewelry piece. We will apply an anti-tarnishing agent free of charge!
Q: My jewelry is tarnished, how do I clean it?
A: A fast and easy way to clean tarnished metal is to make a solution that is 1 part white vinegar and 1 part water. Soak your jewelry in the solution for a few minutes and use an old toothbrush or sponge to brush away any surface stains. For pieces containing precious stones, dip your toothbrush in the solution and brush the surface of the metal around the stone. Rinse the piece in water and dry with a soft cloth. Never submerge a stone in any liquid other than water, as doing so may compromise the stone.
Q: What are the care instructions for my new jewelry?
A: Wipe your jewelry clean with a soft cotton cloth on a regular basis. Soft metals scratch easily so never use a harsh fabric or rub too briskly. For Sterling Silver, a polishing cloth is a great way to keep the piece looking shiny and new for years to come! "Sunshine" puts out a great, affordable one available here on Amazon.
