Jewelry Care

Lassanai jewelry is designed to be worn as much or as little as you like. Most pieces require little care - just wear and enjoy...

There are, nevertheless, a few things to keep in mind to keep your jewels in optimum condition. For instance, we do suggest removing jewelry when 'getting your hands dirty.'

Contact or sweaty sports... messy cooking... lifting heavy objects... swimming... using cleaning products... gardening... all put your jewelry at risk of damage, loss and/ or excessive tarnishing.

Here are some handy tips to keep your jewelry looking its brilliant best!


Gemstones are tough by nature, but they are by no means indestructible. To maintain the beauty and sparkle of your gems, it's best to treat them with care. 

Most stones respond well to mild detergent, warm water, and a gentle scrub with a soft-bristled toothbrush - but avoid scratching the stone too hard. Rinse the stone with water and dry with a soft cloth. Opt for a rinsing bowl instead of a basin or sink - or risk losing your jewels down the plug hole. Gemstones may smash or dislodge when accidentally dropped, and excessive rigorous activity could also dislodge a stone from its setting. While Lassanai honors any production-related issues, we take no responsibility for items that have been dropped or mishandled.


Silver tarnishes rather quickly when it comes into contact with oxygen or sulfur. The best way to minimize tarnish? Wear your silver jewelry often! The oils in your skin naturally help prevent tarnish. 

When storing your silver jewelry, use an airtight plastic bag (such as Ziploc), or a an anti-tarnish cloth bag. Over time, the bright silver finish appearance of a new piece, may evolve to a deeper silver patina. This is perfectly normal. In the case of tarnish or excessive blackening, there are a few ways to go. Sometimes a jewelry polishing cloth does the trick. One popular home remedy is to coat the silver in a paste made with baking soda and water. Let the paste work on the silver for no more than a few hours. Then gently brush (with a soft toothbrush), rinse, and dry your piece for renewed luster. 


Depending on your body chemistry, brass and copper may darken with wear. If you dislike the dark patina, avoid water contact with your brass and copper jewelry. In the event of tarnish, commercial brass cleaner (a la Jax) will easily restore your piece to its original shine. Otherwise, use a soft toothbrush and toothpaste to polish the piece, or soak it in Coke for several minutes.


Depending on your skin chemistry, 14k gold can tarnish a little - particularly on earrings and the inside part of a ring that comes into contact with skin. The good news is that gold tarnish is an easy fix.

Mix a small squirt of mild dish detergent with warm water in a bowl. Submerge the gold jewelry and let it sit for several minutes. Using a toothbrush with soft bristles (ideally a baby toothbrush), gently scrub the gold jewelry. Remove item from soapy water, rinse and dry completely using a soft polishing cloth. 

You can also take any of your Lassanai jewels to a reputable jeweler for a professional (inexpensive) clean that will bring your piece back to brand new. A small ultra sonic cleaner at home can be a quick, easy, and modestly priced way to keep your jewelry in as-new sparkly condition, day in, day out.
