Caring for your FiorSó jewellery

caring for your jewellery jewelry resin enamel and metal

Our jewellery is designed to last – and all our pieces come carefully hand-coated in professional jewellers wax to slow tarnishing. But at the end of the day all jewellery needs some care and attention. So here’s our recommendations for jewellery care – metals and enamel resins.

General jewellery care

We recommend that you remove your jewellery when:

  • bathing / showering
  • swimming
  • applying perfumes / lotions (and allow these to dry before wearing your jewellery)
Tip: Keep your jewellery in its FiorSó jewellery box. Keeping it out of direct light and air will help your jewellery stay fresh. It will also help slow tarnishing and inadvertent surface damage to your jewellery.

Care FAQs

Metal sections

Some of the metal has darkened, what do I do?

If your jewellery starts to turn dark or discolour, don’t worry, this is not usual! This is just a layer of tarnish, caused by skin oils, pollution, air contact and general wear. It is easily removed.

Use your small FiorSó jewellery cloth, or another soft cotton/microfibre cloth and give the metal a good buff. You may see black coming off onto the cloth – that’s the tarnish and completely normal. You will see your piece quickly transform back to its beautiful shine.

We recommend using a dry cloth for this.

However, for really stubborn tarnish, you can use a tiny bit of tomato ketchup or tomato puree, leave on the metal for 10 minutes or so, and rub off. This should remove any really stubborn tarnish! Avoid getting this on any enamel sections though!

Resin / enamel / lacquered sections

How do I look after the resin / enamel / lacquer?

If your chosen jewellery piece contains coloured resin/ enamel/ lacquered sections these need a bit of extra care. Keep your jewellery away from:

  • extreme heat
  • prolonged sunlight exposure
  • sharp objects
  • harsh chemicals (like acetone)
  • submerging in liquids

Tip: Storing your jewellery in your FiorSó jewellery box when not wearing it will help you avoid the above.

The resin/ enamel/ lacquered section has turned dull or matte, what do I do?

Oils (including skin and hair oils) can, on some people, make the enamel turn dull over time. If this happens gently rub your small FiorSó jewellery cloth (or another dry soft cotton/ microfibre cloth) over the affected area to remove the staining.

For more stubborn stains, use a tiny bit of dish soap (like washing up liquid) mixed with warm water and using a soft cloth give the affected area a gentle rub with the soap mixture – do not submerge the whole piece in the soap mixture. Gently wipe clean with a damp cloth, dry off and store away.
