Vane - Care Instructions

  • Always treat your jewellery with care and store it safely when you're not wearing it, preferably in a box
  • Apply skin cream, makeup and perfume before putting on your jewellery.  Chemicals in these products could affect the surface finish
  • Take your jewellery off to go to sleep
  • Avoid getting it wet.  Due to it's construction it is difficult to dry it thoroughly.  If it gets wet by accident, dry it as best you can with a cloth, then hold in front of a hair drier and work your way along, prising the discs apart to make sure no moisture is left inside the chain links.

"Will the colour come off?" - No

This is a common question and the answer is No because rather than coating the metal like paint, the dye is actually absorbed into the transparent oxide, a bit like a tattoo on skin.  It is very tough, in fact the anodising process was developed to harden and protect the metal which is why Apple devices are often made from anodised aluminium.  With enough force a harder material could scratch through the colour to reveal the bright aluminium beneath but with proper care this is very unlikely.

Cleaning

If dust and dirt should gather on the discs use a dampened cotton bud for getting in the gaps.
