Selva jewelry is created to either look rugged or clean. Being handmade, each piece has its own slight uniqueness to it. You may notice over time that our pieces can change due to wear and tear and exposure from substances like chlorine, salt, sulfur (leather products), rubber, water and air. So, if you want to keep the original beauty of Selva pieces, please take off jewelry before use with any substances (especially for our high Polished pieces).
We like to mix up our look and offer a wide variety by making our jewelry with different types of metals and finishes. Sterling Silver, Gold, and Brass are our metals of choice. All can act differently from exposure to different types of elements like the ones mentioned above. We think the more you wear Selva pieces the better it looks and the more character it adds, but that's just our opinion.
You should take certain precautions when it comes to how you handle your jewelry if you like the way it looks when new. Proper care is an important part of keeping your jewelry looking its best. Don’t wear your necklaces, rings, and bracelets when you’re cleaning or working with harsh chemicals; when you’re in the chlorinated pools/spas; or while you’re playing sports or doing any type of physical activity. And when you take off your jewelry, don’t toss them all together in a pile. Store them separately so they’re not rubbing up against one another. Also, consider wrapping them in tissue paper or a soft cloth when you’re not wearing them. When you want to clean your jewelry, soak them in warm, soapy water and use a cloth or very soft brush to scrub away any gunk, dirt, or tarnish.
For Cuff bracelets, DO NOT BEND ON/OFF YOUR WRIST, the cuff can deform and break when doing so (we are not liable if you break your cuff). Carefully and gently, size ONCE to your wrist so it is able to be tightly rotated on and off.
