Onyx Gem Leather Earring
To keep your Nickel & Suede leather earrings and cuffs in great condition it is best to hang them up or lay them flat for storage. Store your jewelry outside of the bathroom and keep it clear from any water, makeup or hair products. Your Nickel & Suede accessories should be the last thing you put on after getting ready for your day.
All of our products have been treated with a protective sealant to help them stay looking their best. Most of our earrings can be wiped clean with a damp cloth but be careful because water can discolor some of our lighter leathers. The suede earrings can also be discolored with water so care should be taken. If an earring gets bent, it can be flattened with a barely warm iron by covering the earring with a cloth or towel and lightly steaming the leather part of the earring (avoiding the hooks) to flatten it.
We recommend against using essential oils on your leather jewelry. Oils will discolor some leathers and cannot be removed.
Sterling Silver and gold will naturally tarnish over time and leather can accelerate that process. If you notice any discoloration on the hooks wiping them with a jewelry polishing cloth should shine them back up.
