6. Care and Durability of Your Jewelry

A personalized name necklace is more than an accessory; it's a personal statement and a sign of deep connection. To maintain its beauty and significance over the years, proper care is crucial. Here are some tips to ensure the longevity of your name necklace:

  • Regular Cleaning: Clean your name necklace regularly with a soft cloth and mild soap solution. Avoid using hard brushes or abrasive cleaners that could damage the surface.
  • Storage: Store your name necklace in a dry place, preferably in the original jewelry box, away from direct sunlight and moisture. Our Herzschmuck box with soft lining is therefore ideal to prevent scratches.
  • Avoid Contact with Chemicals: Do not unnecessarily expose your name necklace to chemicals found in perfumes, hairsprays, or cleaning agents. It's best to put on your jewelry last and take it off first.
  • Wear with Care: Although our name necklaces are designed for everyday wear, we recommend removing them during certain activities like swimming, exercising, or sleeping.

By following these simple care tips, you can ensure that your name necklace retains its shine and continues to accompany you for a long time. Should your jewelry ever get damaged, we offer a repair service to restore it to its original condition.
