LAGOS jewelry is handcrafted from 925 sterling silver and eighteen karat gold. Over time, as with all jewelry LAGOS sterling silver will tarnish. The proper care, storage and cleaning of your jewelry will help to maintain the appearance of your piece.

As a signature feature of the design, you will notice the recessed areas will appear darker in contrast to the surface. This a part of the unique process in which the piece was crafted to make it immediately recognizable as authentic LAGOS jewelry.

  • Periodically examine your clasps and settings to ensure a secure fit.
  • Use caution when placing jewelry directly into any sterling silver cleansers or jewelry solvents as they may remove the unique finish of your LAGOS design. Ensure you are using the proper liquid cleanser.
  • Always put on your LAGOS jewelry after you are dressed to avoid contact with hair products, perfumes, cosmetics or lotions. Overtime, these products will build residue on your jewelry.
  • Do not wear LAGOS jewelry in the ocean, hot tub, sauna, pool, bath or shower as water, heat or chlorine will damage your piece.

Maintain your jewelry. Your piece may be taken to your local retailer for refinishing. For a nominal fee, any piece that cannot be cleaned at home to your satisfaction can be sent to LAGOS.
