Each piece of the Ocean Republic jewellery is carefully hand-crafted and made from a variety of materials as sterling silver, gold, black oxidised sterling silver, black Rhodium sterling silver and recycled brass. Proper jewellery care is essential in order to keep your jewellery looking beautiful for years. To minimize wear, avoid wearing your jewellery while performing activities where they may get damaged, scratched or come into contact with chemicals. We advice to take off your jewellery when you are sleeping, showering or swimming.
For gold and gold plated items, please avoid contact with chemical substances including hairspray, cosmetics, perfumes and chlorines.
Please keep in mind that proper storing and usage are essential to maintain the jewellery in good condition. You can store your jewellery in the original Ocean Republic packaging.
Gold plated items must not be polished with cloths, as this will wear away the surface area. Plated items will fade off in time with regular wear and tear. We provide an affordable professional re-plating service. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Sterling silver jewellery and oxidised sterling silver will be polished clean by continually wearing on the skin, it then develops a lovely shiny silver colour. If you store your silver it can get a natural oxidisation look as well.
To clean sterling silver, gently wash with warm water and baking soda, and polish it up with a soft cotton silver cloth.
Oxidised finishes must not be polished with cloths, as this will wear away the surface area exposing the bright silver underneath. Oxidisation will fade off in time with regular wear and tear. We provide an affordable professional re-oxidising service. Please contact us at email@example.com for further information.
Just like silver, brass jewellery will get a natural oxidisation look over time. We recommend avoiding cleaning processes if you like this look. To clean brass, polish it up with a soft cotton silver cloth.
