Owning a piece of Adele Dejak jewellery means having a unique accessory that embodies the beauty of African heritage and contemporary design. Our jewellery, crafted mostly from brass and aluminium, is designed to be both striking and durable. However, to ensure your pieces remain as beautiful as the day you bought them, it’s essential to take proper care of them. Here are some tips to help you maintain your Adele Dejak jewellery.

1. Avoid Exposure to Moisture and Chemicals

Brass and aluminium are metals that can tarnish when exposed to moisture and chemicals. To prevent this:

  • Remove your jewellery before swimming, showering, or washing your hands.
  • Keep your pieces away from perfumes, lotions, and hair products, as these can cause discolouration or tarnishing.
  • Store your jewellery in a dry place. A zip-lock bag or airtight container with anti-tarnish strips can help keep moisture at bay.

2. Regular Cleaning

Keeping your jewellery clean is key to maintaining its shine and luster. Here’s how you can clean your brass and aluminum pieces:

  • For Brass: Mix a few drops of mild dish soap with warm water. Use a soft cloth or a toothbrush to gently scrub the piece. Rinse thoroughly with water and dry with a soft cloth. For a deeper clean, you can use a paste made of lemon juice and baking soda. Apply the paste, let it sit for a few minutes, and then rinse and dry. Citric acid found in lemon juice acts as both a cleaner and a mild polish.
  • For Aluminum: Use a soft cloth dipped in soapy water to clean the surface. Rinse with water and dry immediately to avoid water spots. Avoid using baking soda on aluminum as it can cause scratches.

3. Polishing

Over time, brass jewellery can develop a natural patina, which many people find appealing. However, if you prefer the original shine, you can polish your pieces:

  • Use a brass polishing cloth or a soft cloth with a small amount of brass polish. Rub gently in circular motions to bring back the shine.
  • For natural polishing: Lemon juice can also be used as a polish. Simply apply lemon juice, let it sit for a few minutes, and then buff with a soft cloth.
  • Avoid abrasive cleaners and rough materials, as they can scratch the metal.

4. Proper Storage

Storing your jewellery correctly helps prevent damage and tarnishing:

  • Keep pieces separate to avoid scratches. Store each piece in its own pouch or compartment.
  • Use anti-tarnish strips in your storage container to help keep your brass jewellery tarnish-free.
  • Avoid humid environments, as moisture accelerates tarnishing.

 

5. Wear with Care

While our jewellery is crafted to be durable, it’s still important to handle it with care:

  • Avoid wearing your jewellery during physical activities such as sports or heavy lifting, which can cause scratches or bends.
  • Put on your jewellery last when getting ready to minimise exposure to makeup, hairspray, and other beauty products.

6. Professional Maintenance

For pieces that need extra attention:

  • Consider professional cleaning and maintenance. A jeweller can clean, polish, and restore your pieces to their original condition.
  • Regular check-ups can ensure that clasps, settings, and other components remain secure.

By following these simple care tips, you can ensure that your Adele Dejak jewellery remains a stunning and cherished part of your collection for years to come. Embrace the beauty and craftsmanship of your pieces by treating them with the love and care they deserve.

Thank you for choosing Adele Dejak. We hope these tips help you enjoy your jewellery to the fullest.
