At James Avery, we are dedicated to providing quality jewelry that will give you years of enjoyment. Knowing a little more about our products and how to care for them, will help to keep your jewelry looking its best.
Cleaning and Polishing your Jewelry
Polishing jewelry pieces regularly will take care of most tarnishing and cleaning problems, and help reduce the chance of skin irritation.
Our polishing cloths are designed with a treated interior cloth for cleaning and an exterior cloth for polishing.
Clean your jewelry with the inside cloth first. Moisten the cloth slightly for extremely tarnished pieces. After your jewelry is cleaned, then lightly buff it with the outer cloth to create a rich luster.
If your jewelry needs a little more attention, use the simichrome polish sparingly by applying a small amount with a clean cotton cloth.Wipe off excess polish and buff the surface to a brilliant finish using a soft cotton cloth. This polish cream works well on 14K or 18K gold, sterling silver, titanium, stainless steel, copper, and bronze metals.
Please note that these polishing materials should never be used to clean gemstones, pearls, or 24 karat gold. Avoid the use of chemical dips and only allow a professional jeweler to clean your fine jewelry.
Avery Art Glass
Remove your Avery Art Glass jewelry during vigorous physical activity and avoid contact with chlorinated water, harsh chemicals, or perfumes. Store your jewelry separately in our soft flannel bags for added protection.
High Standards of Durability:
We require that all our glass beads be annealed, as we have found that beads that were thoroughly annealed in the final steps of their creation have few internal stresses and are very durable. Annealing is a method of very slowly cooling the glass (overnight at a minimum) to relieve the internal stresses after the bead is formed in the fire. This process ensures that our art glass beads are just as durable as many of the natural stones carried in our product line.
Only beads that have passed rigorous impact and other tests are used in the creation of Avery Art Glass Charms.
Clean the art glass beads using a soft brush and a mild solution of lukewarm, soapy water. The sterling may be cleaned using our polishing cloth, or visit our retail stores for assistance.
