Zea et Sia jewellery is made of 14k solid gold. Each piece is hand-crafted and therefore delicate. Zea et Sia designs include very thin signature chains. Please be delicate in wearing your jewellery so you can enjoy it for a very long time.
Gold pieces will get slightly scratched as you wear them. This is part of the normal wear and tear of your jewellery and will give it its particular character.
We recommend cleaning Zea et Sia jewellery with a polishing cloth.
Most of the stones we use are natural gemstones therefore they may vary in shape, size and colour. Inclusions can be seen in natural gemstones and is part of their beauty. Please be aware that most gemstones do not stand the force of cleaning agents, polishing cloths or ultrasonic cleaners.
Zea et Sia designs jewellery to last a lifetime but to keep it looking as beautiful and as new as the day you bought it take care when wearing, storing and cleaning your jewellery.
CARE AND CLEANING
Our gold jewellery is made with 14k gold but each piece of jewellery need to be treated with care. Protect the jewellery from blows, water contact, perfumes, detergents and other products or chemicals that could cause displacement of the stones or crystals.
Our gold jewellery will be stored in individual jewellery boxes, in a dry place away from the kitchen, bathroom or shower in order to prevent their contact with moisture and heat, because they might be scratched. Try to not wear your jewellery in the shower or pool. To delay the natural process of scratching, we advice you to keep your piece of Zea et Sia jewellery in a closed box, and keep it away from perfumes. Remove it when swimming, exercising and sleeping. We understand if you wish to wear your piece of jewellery 24/7, just be aware that the string will need a replacement faster that way. We do offer a restring service as a courtesy from us.
The metal, the setting and the stones can be damaged by sharp and powerful impacts that can occur when working with your hands, doing exercise etc. It is therefore best to wear your jewellery on your non-leading hand and remove them if you know you are about to embark on an activity that may expose them to risk.
Pearls and gemstones should be protected from the alcohol or acids in make-up, perfume and hairspray. Always put your jewellery on last, after your perfume has dried.
Jewellery should be cleaned with nothing stronger than very mild soapy water and a soft toothbrush, while semiprecious gemstones and pearls require only warm water.
There is no need to clean pearls - the natural oils on your skin will help maintain their lustre. Even very mild detergent may damage their delicate coating.
If your piece breaks or is damaged, do get in touch with us. We want you to be very happy with your Zea et Sia piece.
Although gemstones are some of the hardest natural materials in the world, the cut and setting can make them vulnerable. Gemstones are more susceptible to damage when hot, so avoid wearing jewellery at the pool, to the beach, where the sea salt, sun and sand could easily mar the appearance of your gems.
