Acid Mountain Silver pieces are handmade with fine silver, sterling silver and natural stones. Although sometimes a natural occurrence, exposure to liquids, chemicals, cosmetics and natural oils could potentially alter the colour of your stone. Turquoise especially is relatively soft and is sensitive to bumps and scratches. Please refrain from vigorous, messy or wet activity whilst wearing AM jewellery.
To keep your piece in good nick, clean the silver with a jewellery polishing cloth and avoid contact with the stones. Cleaning dips/solutions are harsh and can potentially remove patinas or destroy stones like turquoise, opal and coral. The patina on your piece has been protected with high grade jeweller's wax/lacquer, but may fade over time depending on frequency of wear. Store your jewellery in an airtight box away from other pieces to avoid oxidation.
