Our Jewellery is more than just an accessory, we want you to keep enjoying your Kalapriya pieces for years to come. To maintain your jewellery please keep in mind that Sterling Silver is a soft metal which will naturally oxidise and mellow over time. We recommend keeping your jewellery wrapped in our acid free tissue paper in a dry, cool environment. Always apply perfume and lotions well before putting on your jewellery and removing it before swimming and showering.
A silver cloth is preferred for cleaning as some of the chemical dips can damage the stones and strip the silver of its beautiful lustre.
