Your PANDORA jewellery should be handled with care at all times. All sterling silver will tarnish over time, but it will happen much faster when it comes into contact with agents such as perfume, salty air, sulphur, skin creams, hairspray, chlorine and acidic skin ph. The amount of tarnishing (oxidation) that occurs is dependent on the skin and care habits of the wearer.
Tarnishing is therefore not a manufacturing fault.We also recommend that you do not wear your jewellery whilst bathing, whilst in bed or during sporting activities.Always undo the clasp to remove your bracelet. We recommend the use of our clips to distribute the charm weight into 3 equal sections. Wearing counterfeit charms, or charms by other brands on your PANDORA bracelet could damage the unique threading system and we therefore recommend that only genuine PANDORA charms are worn on our bracelets.
2. Care and cleaning of metals
Use a polishing cloth often to prevent tarnishing and make the metals shine
Clean the jewellery with lukewarm soapy water and gentle brushing with a soft toothbrush
We do not recommend the use of silver polish and silver dip as it may destroy the oxidised details
Do not expose the jewellery to harsh chemicals, ammonia, bleach, chlorine and salt water
Remove the jewellery prior to cleaning, bathing and swimming and do not expose the jewellery to hairspray, perfume and cosmetics
When jewellery is not worn, it should be stored in a protective box or a tarnish-resistant pouch
We recommend that the jewellery is professionally checked and cleaned at least once a year.
3. Care and cleaning of stones
Do not wear gemstone jewellery in situations where it may be exposed to rough surfaces, harsh chemicals or severe impacts
Jewellery with stones should always be stored separated from each other to avoid scratching
Avoid rough handling and when not in wear, keep items of jewellery separate to avoid scratching
Clean with warm soapy water and gentle brushing. Ultrasonic cleaners should only be used with caution.
4. Leather & Wood
PANDORA leather and FSC certified wood are natural materials and must be treated with care.
For daily care, simply wipe the leather/wood with a soft and dry cloth. Leather and wood needs to be cleaned gently and not immersed in water.
We recommend that you use a mild professional cleaner (without chemicals) or use soap flakes.
Create foam in a bowl and apply the suds to the leather/wood surface with a soft lint-free cloth.
Do not expose the wood beads to contact with chemicals, perfume, creams, soaps or silver polish as this will strip.
Wood beads should never be worn in the bath or be submerged in water. Never clean them in an ultrasonic cleaner.
It is recommended that you apply a leather conditioner to the leather after cleaning.
5. Murano Glass
As a characteristic of the production method, each Murano glass charm is unique and can contain small variations in the design.
For daily care, simply wipe the glass with a soft lint-free cloth.
Polishing cloths impregnated with chemicals must only be used on the metal part and not on the glass itself.
A good cleaning solution would be hot water with a small amount of mild liquid soap. Rinse with water and dry with a soft cloth.
Do not clean in ultrasonic cleaners or with silver dip• If the glass becomes "dry" or dull.
6. How should I store my PANDORA jewellery?
Jewellery should be stored away from natural sunlight and heat, in a protective (lined) jewellery box or a tarnish-resistant pouch (currently not available in PANDORA stores). It can also be stored in a plastic zip lock bag made of Mylar or polyethylene.
Never use polyvinyl plastic bags, such as bin liners as they contain sulphur compounds, which will make sterling silver tarnish faster. Do not store your jewellery in the bathroom.Please note that our PANDORA gift boxes are not made for long-term storage as they are not airtight.
