How to clean, maintain and care for your UNOde50 jewelry


UNOde50 jewelry is handcrafted using a variety of materials that require specific care to keep them in optimum condition. To ensure you know the best way to care for your silver-clad pieces, with handmade glass, wood, or leather detailing, here are some simple tips to follow.

Quick tips for all of your jewelry:

There are a series of basic recommendations that apply to all of our designs regardless of material:

– Avoid getting them wet. Remove all jewelry before showering or swimming. Water and chemical products like chlorine can slowly erode the pieces, destroying the leather and dulling the shine of the silver.

– Do not apply perfumes, creams, or other cosmetics to the areas where jewelry is worn. The pH of these types of products can affect the materials.

– Store your jewelry in a place that is protected from sunlight and other external factors like air and humidity, in a closed jewelry box, for example.


In addition to these 3 general tips, the best way to keep your jewels looking impeccable is to look after each of the materials individually. To follow are specific tips for cleaning and maintaining each material:


For silver-clad pieces…

Sterling silver may darken in reaction to light, air, and in some cases, to skin pH. However, regular cleaning will keep it looking like new. How do you clean silver? To clean these pieces we recommend using a soft cloth or non-abrasive silver cleaner to avoid damage.


For gold-clad pieces…

Simply use a soft, cotton cloth regularly to keep your jewelry in good condition. If the piece is very dirty, dip the cloth in warm water and neutral soap, then dry the piece with a soft, dry cloth or paper towel.


For pieces with handcrafted glass or resin…  

To enhance the brightness of the glass and resin beads, we recommend also using a soft cloth, which can be moistened slightly if necessary.


For jewelry with leather or wood detailing…

To clean your jewelry’s leather or wood detailing, use a slightly moist cloth, but never submerge or soak these items in water. For leather, you can also apply a fragrance- and dye-free moisturizing cream.


One of the best ways to keep your jewelry looking as good as new is to wear it frequently. So our no. 1 recommendation is to get the most out of your UNOde50 pieces by flaunting it as often as possible.
