Product Care Guide

Jewellery

You'll find all materials clearly listed in each products description, materials may vary on each product.

Caring for your jewellery is the most important part of maintaining your jewellery. It's your responsibility to take care and look after your jewellery. Treat your jewellery with kindness and be gentle and cautious when handling and wearing.

We're not liable for items broken/damaged due to not being taken care of and not following our Care Guide. 


To prolong the life of your jewellery, we recommend you store it in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight also removing before sleeping, exercising, washing and avoid all liquids. Especially remove your jewellery before sleeping if it's dangly, bulky or more of a statement piece. Anything can happen while you're sleeping so therefore it is much safer to remove the jewellery to prevent any unwanted damages.

Some metals are not-hypoallergenic so therefore you must check if the material is right for you as an allergic reaction can occur if you wear jewellery which you're allergic to. Allergies can run in families so if you're unsure we highly recommend you doing some research before purchasing as we use many different materials.

Metal Information

925 Sterling Silver


Sterling silver jewellery will tarnish. Technically 925 Sterling Silver is waterproof however it does not damage the metal itself although it will oxidize or tarnish faster than it might over time. This is a silver alloy comprising 92.5% by weight of silver and 7.5% by weight of other metals typically copper, zinc and nickel. It tarnishes easily because of the copper content in the alloy which oxidizes when exposed to air and moisture. This can also turn your skin green as well as the jewellery. However sterling silver can easily be polished and restored. We have a silver cleaning cloth that is available for £3.99 Click Here.




Brass


Brass jewellery will tarnish. Brass is an alloy made of copper and zinc. It tarnishes easily when exposed to air and moisture and can turn your skin green/black. Brass can be treated with a lacquer coating to prevent it from as much exposure also sometimes Brass jewellery can be cleaned.




Stainless Steel


Stainless Steel jewellery may tarnish. Although most people believe Stainless Steel does not tarnish however that is not completely true as it can tarnish over time (Time will completely vary). However it is highly resistant to corrosion and oxidization but it's not exaclty 'stainless'. Stainless Steel jewellery can be cleaned.




Plated Jewellery


Plating may tarnish and will wear away. Jewellery that is plated provides an extra layer of protection for your jewellery however it will wear off eventually and become scratched or chipped if not cared for. Plating will wear away due to normal wear, air and moisture also as well as friction.





 
Another reason why jewellery tarnishes, loses colour or changes colour can be a result of all of the above and body chemistry (Which can't be helped) and is not a fault of the product. 

There is a lot of misconception regarding jewellery materials, however we're being as truthful as possible although in most cases if you take care of your jewellery and clean when needed etc, you will not have any problems.

Condoms

 
Do not store Pasante condoms in your pocket, wallet, or purse for more than a few hours. Always store in a cool, dry place, away from sharp objects, chemicals, and direct sunlight. Constant shuffling and other friction can result in wear and tear and make condoms less effective.

Always check the expiry date. In the very unlikely event that they get recalled we will contact you about this and you'll need to check your condoms batch numbers which are on the individual packets.
