Jewelry Care 

Do not use harsh chemicals or abrasives to clean your jewelry as these can cause irreparable damage. Water and mild soap is enough to clean dirty jewelry. Do not use machines like ultrasonic cleaners to clean jewelry as some materials can be irreparably damaged by these. 

We recommend cleaning as often as needed using a polishing cloth or a soft cotton cloth on any metal parts to reduce tarnish. Please keep in mind, due to personal pH levels of peoples’ skin and the frequency of wear, some jewelry may tarnish more quickly for some. 

Please try to avoid over-exposing jewelry made with organic materials to water and sunlight. We recommend removing jewelry of this sort before showering, swimming, etc.

Please note HOFMAN piercing & fine jewelry will not be held responsible for any damages that may occur by forgoing the above recommendations.
