Cleaning & Care
Jewelry naturally tarnishes over time due to exposure. Wearing your bracelets on a regular basis is the best way to avoid tarnishing. Avoid exposing your VAHAN jewelry to salt water, chlorine, and extreme heat. We recommend that you put your jewelry on lastly, after perfume, hair products, etc.
The best way to care for your jewelry is to take it back to the store you purchased it or any authorized VAHAN distributor and have them professionally cleaned. To clean your VAHAN jewelry at home, use silver polish (such as Hagerty), brush gently with a soft cloth, and then rinse it off with water. Let the wet piece dry well, so as to not let any moisture stay inside. Using a hair dryer with low heat can speed up the drying process. Using a SpeedBrite brand ionic jewelry cleaner helps make the process more flawless.
VAHAN provides you with our suede pouches to avoid contact and scratching from other jewelry, and minimize exposure to air, dust, and other natural elements.
Caring for Pearls
VAHAN uses freshwater cultured pearls. Use special care when cleaning them. Wash pearls with mild soap (not detergent) and a soft cloth. Rinse in clean water and wrap them in a thin, damp cotton towel to dry.
Caring for Gemstones
Crystalline gemstones, (amethyst, blue topaz, citrine, etc.) should be soaked in a bowl of water with a small amount of gentle dish soap. A soft brush may be used to scrub around and behind the stone. After cleaning, rinse with cool water before thoroughly drying with a lint-free cloth.
Opaque stones should only be wiped clean with a damp cloth.
