Jewelry Care

Your jewelry should be treated with love and care.

While Morgan Patricia Designs is made with the intention that it will become a lasting treasured heirloom,

please read below for our guidelines to keeping your jewelry looking fresh and clean!​

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

General Guidelines:

  • Wearing your jewelry while working out & doing other strenuous activities, working with chemicals, swimming (ocean, pools & hot tubs), and even showering is discouraged. It is best to avoid situations where chemicals are present.

  • Perfumes, lotions, and hair products are great for YOU, but may discolor your jewels. To avoid damage, your jewelry should be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off.

  • You should be mindful of your jewelry while wearing it, and choose pieces that fit with your lifestyle. Keep in mind that jewelry that looks delicate, is. MPD uses an assortment of fossils and gemstones that require maintenance to uphold their beauty and strength.

  • A pouch, jewelry box, or tiny plastic bags (for silver!) are the best places to store your jewelry while not wearing it. Sleeping in your jewelry is not advised; no one enjoys untangling necklaces in the morning.

 

 

Opals & Fossils:

  • Opals are beautiful, organic gemstones and need special care & treatment to maintain their natural beauty and bright fire.

 

  • Please do not use store-bought jewelry cleaners or put these MPD pieces in an ultra-sonic cleaner. 

 

  • Steam clean your diamonds? YES! Steam clean your opals and fossils? NO!

 

 

Precious Metals & Diamonds:

  • To keep your silver and diamonds sparkling, warm water with a touch of (unscented) dish soap and a worn tooth brush is all you need. Silver polishing cloths will also do the trick!

 

  • Be aware of any components that were purposely oxidized. Polishing cloths and soaps may remove a blackened finish that will need to be reapplied.

 

  • If you don’t have access to a professional jeweler with a steam cleaner, use a soft polishing cloth on gold jewelry. Again, warm water with non-detergent soap and a worn tooth brush will help remove any lotion or debris that may find its way into details and settings. Carefully scrub any delicate elements and rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry.

 

Of course all jewelry is meant to be worn, seen and enjoyed - please do so with care!
