Each handmade piece of jewelry created by AHKAH’s artisans is refined and delicate.
In order to maintain the shine and quality of your jewelry, please read the following instructions with special attention to when you wear it, care for it and store jewelry.
Special precautions when wearing
Do not wear jewelry in high temperature environments (sauna, beach, in close proximity to fire etc.) or
freezing conditions (ski sites, skating rinks etc.). Since precious metals possess thermal conductivity,
you may risk burn or frostbite.
Do not wear jewelry during exercise or when sleeping. Doing so may risk accident or breakage.
Cosmetics, perfumes, detergents, hot water, seawater and ultraviolet light may damage jewelry.
Chemicals (benzine, alcohol etc.) and acids including fruit juice may have harmful effects depending on the metal and precious stone composition of your jewelry.
Because of jewelry’s sensitivity to impact, be sure not to impact or drop your items. Even friction from washing dishes or strain from carrying heavy items may damage them. Some jewelry may become entangled with the fibers of clothing or animal hair, this may cause harm to jewelry and clothing.
Natural stones such as diamonds are subject to dulling by contact with oils (including those of skin) and other contaminants.
Pearls and corals are sensitive to acid, heat and water. Be sure to wipe off sweat, skin oil and cosmetics gently with a soft cloth after wearing. Exercise caution as each piece of jewelry should be treated differently. Please feel free to ask our store staff for further information.
Use jewelry boxes or cases to protect jewelry from damage and store it carefully avoiding impact.
Be sure to carry individually wrapped, or in a pouch, when going out or traveling.
