Palas jewellery should be handled with love and care at all times. Here are a few tips to help to maintain the quality and lustre of your Palas pieces.

Tarnishing >
All sterling silver, brass, bronze and gold plate will naturally tarnish over time but this will happen much faster when it comes into contact with water, perfume, salty air, skin creams, chlorine, sea water, perspiration, chemicals, acidic skin etc. Hot and humid conditions can also cause metals to tarnish faster.
Natural pearls, gemstones, crystals, gold plate and metals >
None of these should be submerged in or exposed to water, chlorine, perfumes, chemicals, cosmetics and creams etc as they will damage the surface and natural shine and may also dissolve the glue that secures the crystals in some of our designs.

Leather bracelets and necklaces >
Leather and water are not great friends! We suggest removing your leather bracelets and lariats before showering and swimming. Water causes leather to rot and weaken and can therefore lead to breakages and discolouration.

How to clean and care for your Palas (excludes any gold plated designs) > 

Step 1 > Buy a polishing cloth
Step 2 > Polish your Palas jewellery
Step 3 > Protect your items from moisture, heat, perfume and creams etc.
Step 4 > Store in Palas jewellery pouches and draw box


Polishing cloths $10 >
Clean your Palas jewellery with our very effective polishing cloths, which have a solution in the fabric that works it's magic on any tarnished pieces. We suggest that you polish your charms every 2 – 3 months as well as adhering to the care tips above. Please avoid the use of silver dip liquid or paste as they contain harsh chemicals that will damage the metals as well as the protective lacquer our charms are coated in. Gold plated chains should never be polished as this will remove the plating.


All of your beautiful Palas jewellery is sent to you with a cotton pouch inside a Palas draw box. When you are not wearing your peices simply put them back into their pouch and store them in your draw box away from sunlight in a cool, dry place. Storing your jewellery in it's pouch and draw box will ensure your jewellery will stay protected and will be less likely to tarnish in the future.


We advise cleaning your precious stones with a clean, soft, damp cloth after wearing. Very porous stones such as turquoise and emeralds should be cleaned using .


I have a script initial charm that is tarnished but the cleaning cloth doesnt seem to totally remove the stain. Any tips on what to try.
