Many factors influence the durability of your jewellery, and taking good care of them is important. The jewellery can be easily cleaned with a soft cloth. This is particularly important to do if the jewellery has been in contact with sweat, chlorine, perfume or hairspray, as these factors, as well as consumption of alcohol and medicine, body imbalance, stress, air pollution etc. can provoke a chemical reaction in the metal, which can be seen in the form of rapid oxidation.
Crystals and leather cannot tolerate any form of chemicals. We recommend that you clean it after use if it has been in contact with chlorine, perfume, hairspray or sweat.
WEAR AND TEAR
All gold and silver will eventually oxidize, and because Pilgrim jewellery are plated with genuine gold and silver, they too will oxidize over time, i.e. become darker on the surface, sometimes shown as spots, sometimes as a general darkening of the color.
To avoid rapid oxidation it is important not to store you jewellery in the bathroom due to the air humidity. Moreover, we recommend that you do not sleep, shower/bathe or participate in sport while wearing the jewellery.
Please note, the oxidation may transfer to your skin. If you experience a change in the above factors, the transference will likely disappear. As a result, you can often wear the jewellery at a later time, without the transference.
