The porcelain is fired twice for durability—once at 1000 degrees Celsius, a second time with glaze at 1250 degrees.
The front of each piece is clear glazed to shine; the reverse side remains unglazed to reveal the natural characteristic of porcelain.
Many pieces are adorned with sterling silver or 24K gold-plated silver accents.
- Avoid Water

- Chains are sensitive. Don't crimp them
- Always place back in jewelry box
- Each item might differ
- Handle with care and love
A few tips to keeping your jewelry looking its best:
- Gently wear with care and love and enjoy for a long time. Porcelain is best treated like shell, glass or gemstone.
- Sorry, no swimming or showering while wearing your jewelry. Too much water can damage your metal pieces.
- It is recommended to remove jewelry while sleeping, exercising, showering, or doing household chores. Cleaning, gardening or other day to day activities can scratch, chip, or damage your jewelry.
- Also, keep your jewelry stored separately as metals and porcelain can scratch each other. When you are not wearing your jewelry, store them separately in their boxes.
- We love smelling good just like you do! But it is best to avoid some beauty products as they may cause gold finish and adhesives to break down. Apply your perfume, cream, lotion before wearing.
- While porcelain is a durable and strong material, avoid dropping on hard surfaces.
- Keep your pieces pretty by gently polishing them with a soft, dry cloth whenever they’re looking a little dull.
- As with most jewelry, a patina will develop over time. To help reduce tarnish and clean the porcelain, mild soap & lukewarm water can be used with a soft brush or damp cloth to increase shine and patina, then dry with a soft towel.
- Gold glaze is a surface treatment and may patina or fade depending on pH, use and exposure to chlorine or perfume. Silver and gold-plated accents can be shined using a polishing cloth or leather chamois.
DO NOT use brush on gold glaze.
- The JT branded jewelry box or other closed hard case can help slow tarnish and protect both the porcelain & metal components of your jewelry.
HOW TO CLEAN ACRYLIC LUCITE
Acrylic (also known as Plexiglass or Lucite) offers many advantages over glass. Though the two may share a similar appearance, acrylic is more clear than regular glass and is only half the weight yet 17 times more resistant to impact than traditional plate glass. You can easily maintain that prized transparency if you know how to clean acrylic properly. In this guide, we will walk you through the process of cleaning acrylic so that you can keep your acrylic surfaces in excellent condition.
Tips for cleaning acrylic: One drawback to acrylic is that it’s prone to abrasion, which means that you need to take special care when cleaning your jewellery. Just follow these tips!
Dirt Levels: Take a close look at the acrylic to judge how dirty it is. This will help you determine how strong of a cleaning solution you need to use. Is there nothing more than a coat of dust? You can use a spray bottle with water to wipe the acrylic down. Never wipe the objects dry.
Tough stains and streaks may call for a mild soap or detergent, a soft, clean cloth (preferably a soft, lint-free microfiber cloth) and plenty of lukewarm water. Apply the soap or detergent to the acrylic with the cloth using only light pressure or a spray bottle.
Cleaners: Avoid any cleaning products that contain alcohol, ammonia, aromatics, and other abrasives. Alcohol can cause cracks and microfractures in the surface of the acrylic. Ammonia can eat into the surface of acrylic and leave it looking cloudy. Most grades of acrylic are susceptible to chemical attack from aromatic hydrocarbons, acetone, benzene, or toluene. You should also stay clear of traditional glass cleaners, halogens, and ketones. Do not use glue.
Scratches: Acrylic sheeting is prone to scratching, which means there’s a good chance that your jewellery may be scratched with use. Not to worry, using some Overlay/Pronto cream, you can safely remove light surface scratches by temporarily filling in the scratch. Vaseline will achieve the same effect.
And just in case, avoid placing your jewelllery near sharp objects to prevent scratches.
Breakage: Though very resistant to breakage, both acrylic and porcelain can break, crack or scratch if dropped on hard surface.
Use it lovingly and it will love you back for a long time!
