Each MAPLE piece is handcrafted and requires delicate handling. All products are made from recycled sterling silver, which can oxidize over time by exposure to the air and substances from the skin. Never wear your jewellery when in the swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi or the shower. In case of heavy oxidation, please use reducing agent (silver polishing cloth) to clean the piece, which should be stocked at most local goldsmiths. Please note that our bracelets can be adjusted slightly in size by tightening or loosening the bangle carefully. However, make sure to only do this once (carefully), as they can break if done frequently.
Gold plated jewellery must be handled with the same care. There is no guarantee how long the plating will last. This means that the base is of sterling silver, plated with a layer of 14k gold. The length of time it lasts depends on how the jewellery is worn and handled. Avoid direct contact with water and chemical products e.g. soap and perfume.
