Each hand-crafted de Cosmi piece should be worn and well-loved, with care taken due to the natural qualities of the metals, stones, pearls, and shells used in our collection.
We suggest avoiding exposure of your de Cosmi pieces to household chemicals which may cause damage to the materials we use.
Avoid contact of any pearls, opals, or fabric cords with perfumes, lotions, creams, beauty products, and hairsprays.
Bathing or swimming in our pieces is not advised.
Excessive sunlight may cause some natural stones' colors to fade.
Blackened silver pieces may wear to a silver shine over time; this is part of the aesthetic intention with age and wear.
If in the New York City area, and if you wish for your piece's blackened silver to be re-blackened, de Cosmi offers this service free of charge, pending availability - please be in touch with us at email@example.com to arrange an appointment giving minimum 1 week's advance notice, and with holiday schedule in mind.
Please do not polish de Cosmi's blackened silver pieces as this will remove the treatment.
Much like all of de Cosmi's pieces, we especially recommend wearing our pearl and opal pieces as your skin's natural moisture and oils help to retain the luster of these precious materials.
We do not recommend aggressive jewelry cleaning products, especially those which contain acids, alcohol, or ammonia as these may damage the high quality materials and hand-craftsmanship used in our collection.
As fine jewelry, simple care and maintenance, and avoiding dropping, bending, compressing, and extreme temperatures will preserve each piece's beauty, integrity, and quality de Cosmi craftsmanship over time.
