Caring for your Murkani Jewellery
MURKANI Jewellery is made with precious metals and semi-precious stones and as such needs to be handled with care. Sterling silver jewellery will tarnish over time however with proper care, your precious metal will retain its beauty and shine. Further enhancing the life of your MURKANI jewellery is as easy as following these steps:
- Avoid contact with all liquids and chemicals, such as perfume, sea water, chlorine and sweat. Contact with these substances will increase that rate at which tarnishing occurs.
- Ensure your jewellery is not exposed to humidity and is not stored in direct sunlight.
- Store your jewellery in the MURKANI pouch provided when you bought the jewellery. It will protect it from scratches as well as help slow the tarnishing process (see below). To further reduce the tarnishing effect, we recommend storing your silver jewellery in plastic zip lock bags to avoid contact with the air.
- Silver tarnishes when it is exposed to the air. This process is called Oxidization and results in a tarnishing effect on the silver with is Silver Sulphate. This tarnishing effect can be removed easily by buffing with a sliver jewellery cloth or using a silver cleaning product like Goddard’s Silver Cleaner.
Cuffs & Bangles
All of our beautiful new Cuffs contain an alloy to make them more flexible, which allows you to lightly squeeze it to tailor fit your wrist once you’ve purchased it.However, at Murkani we want our customers to have the best possible experience with our brand and therefore ask that you teach the consumer to treat this delicate piece with care. All our bangles are a size medium and therefore should not be squeezed beyond their capabilities. We spend a lot of time getting the quality and materials right when developing our products and we want this to reflect in your experience.To put them on, please place the open cuff part sideways and gently slip them onto your wrist at the smallest point of your wrist.
