Product Care

Every piece of Satomi Kawakita jewelry is thoughtfully designed and delicately handcrafted. Follow these simple guidelines to ensure your jewelry always look beautiful.

 

Apply beauty products such as perfume, hairspray or deodorant before wearing your jewelry.  Jewelry should be removed before swimming or doing household chores using abrasive cleaners or chemicals.

 

Silver:  Wipe your jewelry gently with soft cloth after each wearing.  Storing silver jewelry in a Ziploc bag slows down tarnishing process.  If you would like to restore your jewelry’s shiny finish, soft brush (like a toothbrush) and mild detergent will easily and quickly remove tarnish. Rinse and set on paper towel to dry. You can also use silver polishing cloth available from most jewelers. Silver dipping solutions are also helpful for detailed pieces.  Please avoid wearing your jewelry in natural hot springs as silver tarnishes especially when exposed to salt air and products containing sulfur.  (Oxidized Silver: Excessive cleaning may remove its finish.  Please avoid ultrasonic cleaning or any liquid cleaning.)

 

Gold and Platinum: Wipe your jewelry gently with soft cloth after each wearing and store in a cool and dry place.  We recommend professional ultrasonic cleaning service at your local jeweler for deeper cleaning.  (Black Rhodium Gold:  Please avoid ultrasonic cleaning or any liquid cleaning solutions)

 

Diamonds and other Gemstones: Wipe your jewelry gently with soft cloth after each wearing.  Do not store your diamond jewelry next to other jewelry pieces as this can cause scratches. We recommend professional ultrasonic cleaning service at your local jeweler for deeper cleaning.   (Pearls:  Please avoid ultrasonic cleaning or any liquid cleaning solutions)
