resizings & repairs
If your jewelry requires any periodic refurbishment, whether resizing, repairing or restringing, we highly recommend that you send it to us, as special techniques are used to craft Jane Bohan jewelry and achieve our signature look.
jewelry cleaning & care
We recommend storing your jewelry in the pouch provided, as this protects the finish from any unwanted scratches. After wearing for several weeks or months, jewelry develops a patina unique to the wearer. While not necessary, it is possible to periodically refinish your Jane Bohan Jewelry. A soft toothbrush and solution of one cup of warm water and a few drops of mild dishwashing liquid takes care of most dirt and oils.
Soak your jewelry in the water/soap solution and gently brush the front and back of it with a soft toothbrush. Rinse well under warm water. (Be sure to cover the drain in case you accidentally drop your jewelry.) Dry both the front and back with a clean, absorbent cloth.
basic do's & don'ts
Do not wear your jewelry when swimming, as chlorine is corrosive to precious metals. Avoid ultrasonic cleaners or leave their use to a professional jeweler, since some stones can shatter when cleaned ultrasonically. Avoid exposing your jewelry to lotions, sunscreen, perfume, hairspray, makeup, harsh cleaning solutions and other chemicals. As a preventive measure, remove rings when gardening, rock climbing, weight lifting or engaging in any activity that involves pressure on your hands.
necklaces & bracelets
Jane Bohan necklaces and bracelets are strung on natural silk or nylon thread. Keep in mind that submerging strung necklaces and bracelets in liquid will result in damage to these threads. Pearls, exotic woods and some gemstone beads are more porous than metal, and perfumes, lotions, hairspray, soaps and makeup can affect their natural beauty. To ensure their luster, periodically clean by gently rolling back and forth on a barely damp cloth. Store in the pouch or box provided for added protection.
While your ring is crafted for durability and strength, misuse can greatly affect its life span. Never wear your ring while lifting weights, rock climbing or engaging in activities that involve pressure on your hands. Daily living is not only hard on your hands, but on your jewelry as well. Never wear your ring while swimming, as chlorine is corrosive to precious metals. A ring that has small diamonds or other gemstones requires more maintenance. If your ring experiences a serious blow, gently tap the top of each stone to ensure that it's secure. If the stone moves or makes a tapping or clicking noise, do not wear the ring until it is examined by a jeweler.
To clean your ring: 1) Soak for thirty minutes in a small bowl filled with warm water and a mild soap. 2) Remove the ring from the solution and gently brush around the front and back of the mounting with a soft toothbrush. 3) Dip the ring into the solution a second time, then rinse in warm running water. (Cover the drain to prevent your ring from accidentally dropping into it.) 4) Set to dry on an absorbent cloth, or pat dry.
Applied patinas such as oxidation or antiquing, while durable, are surface treatments. Keep in mind that exposure to skin acidity, perfumes, lotions, sunscreen and cleaning solutions can affect the patina of oxidized silver.
