Care guide

BY1OAK pieces are crafted by hand.

Everyday considerations: Be aware of all contact to your jewelry. Delicate pieces can be caught on clothing or handbag straps without being noticed. Your jewellery should be put on last when dressing and taken off first. 

Safety first: Remove your jewellery prior to sleeping, submerging in water or exercising to avoid significant wear and tear.  

Skin: Limit the contact your piece has with perfumes, creams and makeup as these substances can accelerate the tarnishing process and congest any links or settings in your jewellery.

Storage: Your jewellery should be stored individually in its original packaging in a dry, cool place to prevent it from being scratched, tangled or tarnishing.  

Silver: Sterling silver can oxidize over time, so take good care of your jewelry and clean it regularly with a silver polishing cloth.

Gold plated: Over time, 14k gold plated jewelry will naturally fade due to the various levels of acid and salt in its wearer’s skin. 
To extend the life of gold plated jewellery, avoid wearing when washing hands, showering, applying lotion, using harsh cleaning supplies or exercising. To clean, buff gently with a soft and dry 100% cotton cloth or a microfiber cloth. 

* If you notice your vermeil jewellery losing its colour, we offer a replating service for a small fee. Please contact our Customer Support at for more information.
