Jewelry Care Instructions
The matte finish that makes Amy's jewelry so unique is a result of an involved process that requires little care. But it is important that you don't use a polishing cloth. Polishing the silver will remove the matte finish. The following steps should be taken when cleaning your jewelry.
1. Use a liquid jewelry cleaner like Tarnex. This can be purchased at most drug stores.
2. Do not immerse beach glass such as coke bottle or abalone in the liquid.
3. For transparent glass use a cotton swab.
4. Opaque colors can be full dipped into the cleaner.
5. Pour just enough jewelry cleaner into the container to cover the piece.
6. Dip the piece in the liquid and RINSE IMMEDIATELY with water.
7. Do not do this in a stainless steel sink as it will stain the metal.
8. Pour the jewelry cleaner back into the bottle for reuse or store in a plastic container with a sealed lid.

9. To dispose the cleaner add baking soda to neutralize the chemicals before pouring down drain.
10. Gently towel dry the jewelry. Do not polish it.
Caution: Do Not use an ultrasonic cleaner
What Is Vermeil
Pronounced vur-may, vermeil is a 14k gold layer measuring 100 millionths of an inch, over sterling silver. Standard plated metal is 2 millionths of an inch and is much less durable than vermeil. Vermeil is more durable than gold plating and with proper care your vermeil jewelry will last for years.
How To Care For Your Vermeil Jewelry
1. Use dry cotton balls to gently clean and polish any dust or residue.
2. Apply 1-2 drops of silver dipping solution (Tarnex) to a cotton ball and gently rub the vermeil.
3. Rinse and dry gently with a soft non-abrasive cloth
