Luisateresa jewelry is made of 925 sterling silver and 18 carat hard gold plated 925 sterling silver (Vermeil).
Wear and tear over time is normal. It's not considered a fault.
Please always remove your luisateresa jewelry before bathing, showering, washing the dishes, etc, especially when you’re wearing a gold plated item. All those chemicals can damage the surface of your jewels.
Please always use parfume, body lotion, hair spray etc. first before wearing your jewelry.
Always remove your jewelry before going to the gym. Sweat is something natural, but it can damage your jewels. Especially during summer you should take care of your jewelry. High temperatures and sun exposure, chlorine, salt water and sand can damage your items.
Never store your jewelry in the bath room since humidity is not good for your jewelry. Better store it in a dry place.
If you want to clean your jewels, please use a special silver polishing cloth to make your jewels bright and shiny again.
Wear and tear over time is normal. It's not considered a fault. In general you can say that silver needs less care than gold plated jewelry. Even if our jewels are 18 carat hard gold plated, you should be careful and gentle with your jewelry. If you want us to polish and gold-plate your jewelry again please write us an e-mail and we will make you an offer.

Special Care for your Opal Jewelry:
Ethiopian Opals are hydrophane:
Sounds more difficult than it is. It just means that they are thirsty for water. If they come in contact with water they will absorb it like a sponge. Then they lose their fire and characteristic shimmer and/or turn orange/brown or yellow. Some Opals get completely clear and transparent. No need to worry! The fire and the color will come back once the stone is fully dried again. This can take minutes to weeks, depending on your stone and how much water it absorbed. When drying it, put your stone in direct sunlight.
High temperatures or temperature fluctuations should be avoided, otherwise your stone might crack.
Care for your Opal:
Please avoid the contact with any chemicals and liquids like creams, perfumes, etc. It’s important to carefully pay attention to our care instructions. Opal jewelry can’t be cleaned as easily as other pieces of jewelry you know from us. Never put your Opal jewelry in an ultrasonic cleaner (too much water and too high temperatures) and also never clean your opal jewelry with any chemicals we would recommend for other pieces from us.
