  1. Sterling Silver Discoloration

     

    It is normal that Sterling Silver jewelry (including nose studs) will turn color over time as they tarnish.  Normally the stud will darken, and this is due to gasses that are in the air and the percentage of copper in the jewelry.  Sometimes your skin will also turn color because of the chemical reaction between your skin, the alloys in the metal and gasses in the air.  There are lots of sterling silver jewelry pieces that are coated to help them from discoloring, but even the coating will wear off in time.

    The good news for your jewelry is that it can easily be restored back to its original state by using a Sterling Silver Jewelry Cleaner.  You can normally buy this at any store that sells jewelry.  Walmart, grocery stores, Pharmacies.

    If you experience your skin turning colors you can try putting clear nail polish on your nose stud which will prevent the metal alloys from coming in contact with your skin, but again this will wear off.

    Our best suggestion if you are in the small percentage of people who have sensitivity to sterling silver is to purchase a nose stud of a different material.  Some customer’s reactions are stronger than others, but there are people whose skin is permanently black around where their nose stud was due to the reaction. 

  2. Keeping Your Fake Jewelry Looking Its Best

      If you don’t yet have your nose pierced and have opted to go for one of our Fake Nose Jewelry pieces, here are a few tips to keep your jewelry looking like new.

    1)      Before wearing perfume/cologne or any type of body spray – remove your jewelry.

    2)      Wearing your jewelry in a hot tub, or pool is a prime location for your jewelry to start discolouring.

    3)      Remove your jewelry before you have a shower.

    4)      If you are cleaning the house and using chemicals, make sure you don’t scratch or touch your piercing site.  Your safest bet would be to remove your jewelry.

    5)      The air around us has a lot of pollution, when you aren’t wearing your jewelry be sure to keep it in a jewelry box, or a safe place where it isn’t exposed.

    6)      You may be surprised to learn that sweat can cause jewelry to become discoloured as well.  If you are into sports you may want to remove your stud before you start.  (Especially if there is a change of someone or something coming in contact with your fake jewelry as that could end up hurting depending on the type of jewelry.)

    7)      You can wash your jewelry regularly with a mild soap and luke warm water which will help to keep it looking its best as well!


  3. Cleaning Your Swarovski Gem

    There are many different reasons why you would need to clean your Swarovski gem in your nose stud... Products such as hairspray, cleansers, makeup, lotions can all too often get lodged in your Swarovksi gem making the gem appear to be dull and not as vibrant as it once was. If you have a nose stud that contains a Swarovski gem the best way to clean your nose stud is by removing it.

    Simply insert the nose stud in a bowl of luke warm water that contains a mild liquid detergent. This can even be mild dishsoap or handsoap. Next, take a soft bristled brush such as a toothbrush and scrub your gemstone. Make sure that you don't use bristles that are too hard as this may scratch the metal setting on your nose stud. Also, make sure your nose stud is far away from any drain or place where it can get lost.

    After you have finished scrubbing the nose stud put it back into your liquid soap solution and swoosh it around a few times. Rinse the Swarovski nose stud with warm water and then dry it. You will notice your dull Swarovksi gem has come back to life!


  4. Cleaning Your Diamond

    There are many different reasons why you would need to clean your diamond in your nose ring...

If you have a nose ring that contains a diamond the best way to clean your nose ring is by removing it. Simply insert the nose ring in a bowl of luke warm water that contains a mild liquid detergent.

  5. Cleaning A Cubic Zirconia (CZ) GemStone

    You've just bought a new sparkling nose ring, it has a beautiful Cubic Zirconia Gemstone... You are certainly encouraged to clean your nose ring upon arrival, but also we encourage you to KEEP cleaning your nose ring in order to ensure the same sparkling diamond-like effect that you first experienced when you opened your well packaged nose ring.

    Even if you don't often touch your nose ring, things such as hairspray, perfume, make up, cleansers, lotions etc can dull the shine of your nose ring. This is the case with all gemstones, not just cubic zirconias.

    Cleaning your nose ring regularly will help to prolong that sparkle, and will also help your piercing stay healthy and not become infected!

    You don't necessarily need fancy nose jewelry cleaning solutions in order to keep your nose ring clean. Simply use a soft bristled tooth brush and with warm water gently brush every angle and corner of your gem. A lot of our customers use rubbing alcohol to disinfect their nose jewelry as well.
