Caring for your Archa Icon Jewelry
Any piece of jewelry will retain its beauty and last longer if properly cared for. Sometimes, simply cleaning a piece of jewelry can make it look like new. Periodic inspection and maintenance of jewelry helps prevent costly repairs or replacements. Look for loose or chipped stones, worn links, bent prongs, or malfunctioning clasps. If a problem is found, the piece should be sent in for repair to prevent more extensive damage or loss.

How to Clean your Archa Icon Jewelry
Over time, lotions, powders, soaps, and natural skin oils can make jewelry and gemstones appear dull. Below are some tips for keeping your pieces clean and shiny.

Cleaning Silver Jewelry
Sterling silver tarnishes in the presence of common everyday items. Because many of these substances cannot be completely avoided, it is recommended that sterling silver be routinely wiped down with the a soft cotton cloth. When not in use, store your jewelry in the pouch that came with it.
To remove heavier tarnish, wash your silver jewelry with warm water and mild soap and a soft cloth or a very soft bristle brush like a babyís toothbrush. We do not recommend silver polish or dip style cleaning solutions, which will remove the antique oxidation that we intentionally apply to many Konstantino pieces.

Cleaning Gold
Using gentle dish soap, prepare a small bowl of warm suds and soak each piece before brushing with a soft babyís toothbrush. When clean, transfer jewelry to a strainer, rinse under warm running water, and pat dry with a soft, lint-free cloth.
