All of our Zart jewellery is handmade with the highest quality precious metals and ethically sourced gemstones.
Each Zart piece is designed to withstand the seasons but as with all luxury goods - each piece does require a little tender loving care.
Given the delicate hand-made nature of our pieces we recommend that you:
- Avoid wearing your jewellery in the shower, ocean, or pool and limit contact with colognes and lotions.
- Avoid banging your jewellery on table-tops or against any other hard surfaces and always pack your jewellery with care.
- We have included a velvet pouch with each piece as it is the optimal way to store your jewellery.
We only use Silver and Gold Plated Silver or Solid Gold and never brass which means - your jewellery will never turn on you. It means no green skin. Ever.
925 Sterling Silver
Silver does oxidise and looks as though it has lost its lustre but this is so easily remedied. We offer a handy silver cleaning cloth for purchase to help restore each piece to its former glory. (Pro Tip: Adding dab of toothpaste on silver really helps bring out its inner shine).
Silver is also H2O sensitive so we recommend avoiding water when wearing your silver Zart pieces. However, the oils in your skin help keep sterling silver from oxidising faster so you shouldn't hesitate to wear as often as you like.
Gold Plated Silver
All plating - be it one micron or thicker three micron gold vermeil plating - will fade over time. It is inevitable but this is why we recommend removing rings even when washing hands and being extra vigilant to avoid coming in contact with various detergents as well as as natural oil-based moisturisers etc.
Sweat also doesn't agree with gold plating so be sure to remove before the gym. Should your jewellery get wet at some point, just use a soft cloth to ever so gently pat dry - no excessive rubbing.
