To ensure that your Nikolai Babitzin jewelry gives you pleasure for many years, it is important to take care of it in the best way possible.
Keep it in the accompanying box when not wearing it. Wipe with a polishing cloth after each use to remove make-up, grease, odors etc. Remove your jewelry when bathing, doing the dishes, gardening, sports etc. to protect it from unnecessary wear. Avoid sleeping with jewelry on, which also exposes it to unnecessarily hard wear. No metal, including silver and gold, can tolerate salt or chlorinated water.
Pearls and stones should be whiped after use with a lightly moistened cloth. To ensure they retain their lustre it is important that they do not come into contact with substances that have a degreasing effect, such as perfume and dish soap. It is best to keep pearls covered (but avoid using cotton balls, which has a desiccating effect).
Clean your jewelry regularly and it will retain its appearance.
Nikolai Babitzin Helsinki uses nickel free 925 silver. Silver can sometimes darken, i.e. become oxidized. This can be due to the minerals and salts secreted by the body and can be remedied using 'Silver dip', a product available from specialist retailers.
