Care with Inês Telles' jewels:


All Inês Telles pieces are designed through manual processes in Inês Telles’ workshop, in Lisbon. The material used is 925 silver - the most common legal silver alloy. The coloring of the material may vary between silver tone, gold (gold-plated) and black (oxidized with sulfur liver derivatives). All jewelry is send with it’s own packaging, box or fabric bag. To maintain your jewelry in the best condition possible, you should keep it individually in the package, avoid contact with perfume, cream and water. Silver naturally darkens with time and use. If you wish to maintain your jewels you can use a soft brush, detergent or toothpaste, and wash it with water and let it dry completely.


In the case of oxidized jewels (oxidized intensively with sulfur liver oxide), the regular use makes them lighter in color. The oxide is a patine that wears of with use and gives rise to the natural color of the silver. If you do not like this mutation, you can leave the piece in pure bleach for 15 minutes, wash with water and dry thoroughly.


In the case of gold-plated jewelry, if they darken, try cleaning them as you would normal silver, with a soft brush, detergent or toothpaste, and then wash it with water and let it dry completely.


If the result is not what you want, please contact Inês Telles atelier and we’ll do the maintenance of your jewelry for free.
