Although sea glass itself is obviously waterproof, but the metal parts can be prone to tarnish if exposed to humidity.
We recommend not to wear them in the bath or shower, or during swimming, sleeping, and exercise. Also avoid contact with perfumes or lotions and other chemicals as they can accelerate tarnishing of metal parts.
Please store them in a dry place. If the humidity level in your home is high, we recommend storing them in a closed jewellery box, or the packaging box or bag we provide with each purchase.
We leave all the sea glass pieces unaltered, the way how the waves created them. It means that while they were in the water, they looked shiny, but after they are dried out the surface becomes matte. If you wish to give it a shiny look, you can apply a tiny drop of baby oil or coconut oil to the glass (not to the metal) and rub it on the surface of the sea glass. This way it will look as if it is just out of the sea.
Sea glass can be cleaned with a dry soft cloth, or a slightly damp soft cloth if needed. If needed a toothbrush can be used for cleaning.
The metal parts can be cleaned with lukewarm soapy water and a toothbrush if needed. In case of tarnish buildup, you can rub some toothpaste on the chain, leave it on for about 30 minutes, then rub it with a toothbrush, and rinse it under lukewarm water. Then pat dry with a soft cloth.
