16b. Maintenance of the jewellery

A jewel worn with care, even daily, rarely requires extraordinary maintenance, especially if it is periodically cleaned with delicacy and stored appropriately when not in use.

In normal daily use the external agents like the atmosphere, cosmetics, humidity and perspiration that come into contact with the jewellery may contribute to reducing its brightness both of the gold surfaces and of the gemstones and brilliants.

The brightness of the jewellery, especially if only in metal (without stones or brilliants) can be easily maintained through the use of non-abraisive products specially designed used for cleaning in the jewellery trade. In fact, most of the commercial products for the cleaning of jewellery can be used without risks as long as they are used properly, even though it is opportune to pay attention to those that contain ammonia, alcohol, acids and chemical substances that can be too agressive.

Rhodium plating  is a surface finish that tends to modify itself wear and it is possible that over time it can lose its effect. It is a surface treatment and therefore the abrasion of contact may cause the consequent reemergence of the colour of the natural base. In any case it is an easily restored surface treatment.

17. Withdrawl from the contract

The Client has the right to cancel the sales contract, without penalty, within 14 days starting from the receipt of the goods.
