CARING FOR YOUR MICHAEL KORS JEWELRY
Great care and attention to detail has been used to design and create every piece of
Michael Kors jewelry. Each piece of sterling silver jewelry is finely crafted from 925 sterling
silver with rhodium, 14K yellow gold and 14K rose gold plating. Some pieces incorporate
natural gemstones and cubic zirconia accents. Michael Kors also offers jewelry crafted
from non-precious metals, with semi-precious and non-precious accents.
To prolong the life and beauty of your jewelry, follow these tips.
Regular wear and exposure to dust, perspiration, household cleaning products, cosmetics,
sunlight, extreme heat and other natural elements can dull the brilliance of gemstones and
precious metals over time. Rhodium, 14K yellow gold, and 14K rose gold plating can help
to protect against tarnishing on sterling silver jewelry.
Use perfume, hair spray and other cosmetics prior to putting on your jewelry.
- Remove jewelry before washing hands, showering, exercising or sleeping.
- Do not wear your jewelry in salted or chlorinated water.
- Most natural gemstones have been subject to an enhancement process or treatment
(e.g. heating, oiling, diffusion, waxing, etc.), which may not be permanent and may
require special care. See care instructions below.
- Never expose gemstones to hot water or chemicals.
- Avoid wearing jewelry during rigorous activity where excessive friction and contact with
hard surfaces is possible, as this may cause permanent scratches or damage.
- Check all fastenings and settings regularly to ensure they are secure and in working
order to avoid scratches, dents or loss of stones or entire jewelry.
A soft cloth can be used to remove fingerprints and maintain the brilliance of your Michael
Kors jewelry. If necessary, your jewelry can be cleaned by gently rinsing in warm water and
dried with a soft cloth. We do not recommend using ultrasonic cleaners due to the
delicate nature of gemstones.
Store your jewelry in a clean, dry place away from natural sunlight and heat. The Michael
Kors care pouch included with your jewelry will help protect against scratching and
