Jewelry care

BOHEME LISBOA jewels are all made from sterling silver 925.

All our sterling silver jewelry is water-resistant and should not tarnish over time.

Sterling silver jewelry can be cleaned with bicarbonate powder to achieve maximum shine.

Our gold vermeil jewelry is also made from sterling silver 925 and if you take care you can enjoy wearing it for years.



Your jewellery should be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off when dressing.

Sterling silver jewelry and specially gold vermeil is susceptible to damage from the effects of chemicals present in water, perfume, hairspray, make-up, nail polish remover, body oils, sun tan lotion and deodorant. If exposed to any of the above the gold plated will tarnish and the turn silver.
Don't expose gemstones to sunlight that can discolour or fade their colour.

So do not swim or shower while wearing gold-plated or silver jewellery, and remove rings when washing your hands.

Chlorine, salt water and fresh water can damage precious metals and gemstones and can permanently damage or discolour them.

Soapy water when bathing and showering can also leave a thin film, which makes the metal seem dull.


Store your jewellery pieces in your BOHEMELISBOA soft-lined box so that they don’t rub together, scratch or tangle.

Make sure the gemstones don't knock against one another when stored.

Always remember to keep your chains fastened so they don’t become tangled.

Keep away from humidity or heat to avoid tarnishing. Choose a dark, cool and dry place to storage your jewelry.

With time and wear, sterling silver will naturally become oxidised and eventually tarnish. Storing silver jewellery in a sealed plastic bag or airtight box when it is not being worn will keep out the air that causes oxidation.
