LAGOS jewelry is handcrafted from 925 sterling silver and 18k gold. Eventually, your LAGOS metals will tarnish. However, the proper care, storage and cleaning of your jewelry will help maintain the appearance of your piece.

Over time the recessed areas of your piece will appear darker in contrast to the surface. This is a unique process that identifies the piece as authentically LAGOS.

  • Periodically examine your clasps and settings to ensure a secure fit.
  • Use caution when using sterling silver cleansers or jewelry solvents as they may remove the unique finish of your LAGOS design. Be sure you are using the proper liquid cleanser.
  • Always put on your LAGOS jewelry last 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.

For a nominal fee, any piece that cannot be cleaned at home to your satisfaction can be sent to LAGOS. Please email customerservice@lagos.com for this professional cleaning service.
