How do I care for my silhouette locket?
Given that you are purchasing a handmade piece of jewelry, it is delicate and needs to be worn and handled with care. Our lockets are an antique brass and the 30″ chain is 14k gold fill. Each brass locket may have minor imperfections (like tiny scratches) because of how they are made. We are not responsible for items broken due to improper handling so be kind to your jewelry! This is not a child friendly necklace so please do not let little hands tug on it. If something does happen to your chain we should be able to repair it for you so don’t hesitate to let us know.
Your locket *needs* to be taken off before showering and exercising.
Keep clean & dry when not in use. Storing in a box or other covered container is important when not wearing it.
To clean the gold filled chain: mild jewelry cleaner or soap and water, rinse.
To clean the brass locket: use a cloth specifically made to polish brass. We include one with each order. The harder and longer you rub it on the cloth, the shinier it will be.
Oxidation is a beautiful part of brass’ natural process and should be expected.
Do not submerge this in water! While the silhouettes inside will be sealed, and water resistant, it is not water proof and you may damage it if it gets wet.
