Each piece of jewelry is handcrafted and, therefore, delicate. Please exercise great care to enjoy your piece for years and years.
All MFM plated pieces are done so with at least one micron of plating. To keep your plated jewelry shiny and bright, avoid perfumes, chlorine, and chemicals around your jewelry. Put on jewelry after applying makeup, and always store in a cool, dry place. Special care should be used when cleaning. Traditional polishing cloths can be abrasive and damage the plating. We recommend cleaning your plated jewelry with warm water and mild soap. If this doesn't bring back the shine, your item may need to be re-plated. Please email us at maryfrances[at]maryfrancesmaker[dot]com to discuss. We're happy to offer re-plating for all MFM items for a small fee.
Our sterling silver items are solid silver and can be cleaned using a silver polish or jewelry polishing cloth.
For the absolute best way to clean your jewelry, we suggest leaving the job to a professional.
