To clean your pieces properly, do not use bleaching products, chemicals, abrasives or ammonia. Instead, it is better to soak the jewel in tepid water with some mild soap for a minute. Then, rinse it clean and use a soft brush to avoid scratching the surface. Dry the piece with a soft cloth, leaving no wet traces. Last, store the piece back again in its box.
To prevent any unwanted breakages and deformations, always hold your pieces by its strongest areas, avoiding those that are mostly suspended on air, when putting on, taking off or cleaning your jewels.
Avoid exposing your jewellery to too much light and heat, since they can damage your pieces and its beauty may fade.
Pieces with movement
To clean your piece, carefully separate each element with movement and use a soft cloth with no product.
If the piece slightly loses its geometrical shape or its structure, gently press the tip of your fingers on the piece so with light touches you return it to its original form.
Pieces with texture
To preserve the texture, use an eraser to clean it. You will get rid of most stains and scratches with an eraser, always rubbing in the same direction.
Pieces with enamel
Enamel can be extremely delicate. Treat pieces with enamel with special care. To clean them, simply use a soft cloth to preserve its colour and shine.
MIMI (Asimetrica collection)
In your hands you are holding the most precious piece of the Asimetrica collection. Due to its fragility, when cleaning it, treat it with special care and hold it only by the strongest areas (avoid holding if from the main rhombus shape in the centre or the top two rhombus shapes, which are mostly suspended on air). By doing so you minimise the risk of breakage and your piece will last longer.
