The classic Pandora Moments bracelet may stretch over time, as weight (e.g. charms) is placed on the bracelet. The chain, commonly called a snake-chain, is crafted from small rings that are twisted very tightly into the chain. When buying a new bracelet, we recommend that there is no more than 1 to 2cm between your wrist and the bracelet. This will ensure that the bracelet still fits when it has stretched and been filled with charms.
It is natural for oxidation to disappear over time, however we cannot place a timeframe on this as it depends how the jewellery is treated. Perspiration, chlorine, perfumes, cleaning agents and silver polish can cause oxidation to fade. Oxidised jewellery doesn’t benefit from being dipped in silver polishing liquid, as this will strip the jewellery of the oxidation. Oxidation that fades is considered normal wear and tear and is not a defect.
PEARLS & MOTHER OF PEARL
Pearls and mother of pearl should not come into contact with silver polish. We also recommend they avoid exposure to make-up, creams, perfumes, chemicals and cleaning agents.
All enamel is Italian made without glass, making it more durable. To ensure the enamel lasts, we recommend avoiding contact with abrasive surfaces. It is also advised that enamel jewellery be stored away from direct sunlight to avoid fading. To clean enamel, use warm soapy water and a soft toothbrush.
Leather is a natural product that will benefit from careful protection. We recommend not wearing in water and avoiding exposure to liquids that may cause discoloration. As leather is a natural product, there may be variations in colour. The shade of the leather may also change over time due to oils in the skin and the addition of charms.
It is recommended that no more than 7 charms be placed on a leather bracelet. When adding charms to new leather bracelets, ensure that the bracelet is held steady and twist or slide the charm onto the bracelet. Be careful not to twist the leather part of the bracelet, as this may damage the leather. Leather can stretch over time, this is not a defect.
To clean Murano Glass charms, use lukewarm water and a mild liquid soap. Rinse and dry with a soft cloth. If the glass becomes dull, simply rub in a drop of mineral oil with a soft lint-free cloth and then wipe gently with a clean cloth. Polishing cloths containing chemicals can only be used on the metal. Do not use ultrasonic cleaners or silver dip.
