Accessories Materials & Maintenance Tips

To help you navigate our collections we have put together this comprehensive guide to the materials we use in our jewellery. Take a look at the options and decide which one is perfect for you. 

 

飾品過敏問題取決於個人體質對於材質的接受度,目前尚未有100%抗過敏的材質。高純度的銀、鈦、醫療鋼均可大大降低過敏的產生,但買家仍須先了解自己的體質適合什麼材質。

由於所有飾品均為消耗品,配戴後難免會與全新不同。 每個人配戴和保養的狀況不一,所以使用的壽命也不一定,此為正常的物理現象。

Titanium & 316L Steel

Titanium and 316L Steel are the most common materials used for piercing and body jewellery. They are extremely hardwearing with a particularly high resistance to corrosion and rust.

If you have sensitive ears then titanium and 316L steel is a great option. They are hypoallergenic and incredibly durable – a perfect choice if you prefer to keep your earrings in day in, day out.

Care Tips

Titanium and 316L steel jewellery can easily be cleaned with warm, soapy water. Create a solution with mild washing up liquid and soak your pieces for a few minutes, cleaning gently with a baby toothbrush if needed. Rinse clean in warm water and gently dry with a soft or microfibre cloth. Better keep it dry and away from chemicals and toiletries.

 

316L醫飾品是能抵抗腐蝕的一種材質 ,亦抗過敏,不易變形,不會褪色氧化,也不易對皮膚造成過敏,對於人體皮膚較不排斥。雖然不會氧化也不易變質,但特別提醒白鋼飾品若是長期配戴,使用或收納時與其他鋼飾互相摩擦,還是有機會產生刮痕,建議不配戴時各別使用夾鏈袋收納存放。另外電鍍玫瑰金色的鋼飾品,長期使用若有色差,是因為表面的電鍍層隨時間褪去,還原成白鋼原色,屬正常現象。一般真空保色電鍍時間可達一年以上,而顏色即便隨著長期使用褪去,仍不影響鋼飾抗過敏,不易變形及不氧化的特性。

 

日常保養

平日配戴完或接觸到香水、化妝保養品、清潔劑...等化學產品時,可使用溫度適中的肥皂水沖洗後,再用柔軟的棉質布或麂皮布輕輕擦拭乾淨。配戴後習慣性收納至飾品盒中,各別存放避免摩擦刮傷,即可常保如新,可保持光亮度。日常保養只需使用柔軟的棉質布或几皮布輕輕擦拭

 

925 Sterling Silver

Sterling silver is predominately made of pure silver (92.5%), alloyed (mixed) with other metals to give strength and durability needed for jewellery. Sterling silver is a good option for those with sensitive ears and it can also be crafted into beautiful detailed designs. Although a precious metal, silver is more affordable than gold, ideal for larger and heavier pieces such as statement earrings.

Things To Note
Sterling Silver demands a little more care and attention than other metals. Silver is softer than gold, steel, or titanium, so earring posts are very malleable hence easily bent.

Silver is also prone to tarnish if exposed to moisture, oil or chemicals.Luckily, although it can be unsightly, the tarnishing on silver can be easily reversed.

Care Tips
The easiest way to remove tarnish is by using a gold cleaning bath dip, such as the “Hagerty Silver Clean”. Pop your pieces into the included basket and submerge them into the cleaning solution. With a quick stir and a couple of minutes wait your pieces should look brand new again. Rinse with warm water and dry thoroughly with a soft, lint-free cloth or with a dedicated gold polishing cloth. Take care when cleaning stone-set pieces to be sure not to catch the claw settings with your cloth.

Always make sure to check the gemstones on the products. Some stones, particularly soft ones like pearls and opals, can be damaged by the chemicals in the gold cleaning bath dip. Check with your jeweller first that your pieces will be safe if used with cleaning chemicals. Always read the instructions on whatever cleaning dip, solution, or cloth you choose.

 

925純銀是1000分之925的銀加上1000分之75的合金,是國際公認的純銀標準。925純銀內含銀離子能夠有效的殺菌,讓銀有防治感染、發炎的特性,人體對純銀也比較不會有過敏反應,亦能減少已發生感染或是發炎的狀況。

耳針若為銀針材質,因其金屬延展性而造成耳針較軟,若遇外力常有些許彎折之情況,皆屬正常狀況,只要輕輕施力扳回即可回復。

純銀會氧化,因為這是純銀的特性。飾變色是因為空氣中的二氧化硫和銀產生了化學反應,表面形成了硫化銀。硫化銀並非掉色,氧化層可以透過清洗而去除。而每個人配戴的都會產生不同的反應。因為每個人分泌汗液的酸鹼度都不同,所產生的氧化程度也不相同。


有些純銀戴起來不會氧化而有些卻會,因為一般會分成外表電鍍白金或是沒有電鍍加工過的925素銀。


表面電鍍處理:
當銀飾電鍍白金後,飾品會呈現與純銀不同的光澤及顏色,顏色較光亮,光澤圓滑,也不易氧化。


未電鍍的素銀:
未電鍍的素銀飾品,是銀的本色,會隨著配戴而產生不同的自然做舊效果,除了讓銀飾更加精緻立體外,光澤也較溫潤。


日常保養

可在清水中加入小蘇打粉然後清洗擦拭。
使用拭銀布,拭銀乳等產品擦拭。
用軟布沾上牙膏或是牙粉搓洗飾品,再使用清水洗淨並擦乾。
浸泡洗銀水,再用清水洗淨後擦拭乾淨,並保持乾燥。


保養禁忌

拭銀布等銀飾保養產品,含有銀的保養成分,請勿水洗。若使用拭銀布已經可以恢復飾品的八成光澤,就無需使用拭銀乳及洗銀水。這些產品都有一定的腐蝕性,過度使用會造成銀容易泛黃。
