Jewelry care – Urberg Design

Jewelry care

In general, it can be said that all jewelery feels good from being stored dry and that it is not, for example, lying in a box and rubbing against other jewelery or other things that can cause scratches and damage.

Different types of joints can be more or less sensitive to load or moisture. My products are soldered as far as possible, otherwise we use glue that must be both durable and flexible, but of course there are limits to what treatment the products can be subjected to. 

Thin and fragile wire and sheet metal should of course be handled with extra care.

When cleaning, you should first of all think about what material the creation to be cleaned is made of and how the object is designed, and based on that choose the appropriate method. And regardless of the chosen method of cleaning - make sure to always wipe really dry.

If you don't have access to blow dry in hard-to-reach nooks and crannies, blowing with a hair dryer is an alternative. However, be careful with high heat as any gluing can soften and can then deform or come off.

Also keep in mind that skin products, perfume and the like can affect the surface.

Sometimes even jewelry needs a friendly handle, care.

Based on my basic values, I therefore naturally offer an opportunity to repair my jewellery.

This is how it works:

First, the customer contacts me via email,

Tell me briefly about what has happened, when and attach a picture of the piece of jewelery and the damage so that I can then form an idea of the damage and then be able to give suggestions for possible measures.

Reservation because the product has been discontinued/material is no longer available, and therefore it may be necessary for us to find other solutions.

Or the jewelry may have had an accident, careless handling in either way.

But, perhaps it is the case that, despite a timeless design language, the customer wishes to remake his/her jewellery. Then the customer makes contact, as above, and from there we take the process further together.
