Resin is strong and durable, yet should be treated as a ceramic as it can break if dropped or knocked against a hard surface. To restore sheen to your jewelry, simply apply moisturiser. To keep your polished resin jewelry in great condition, simply wipe with a clean, dry cloth. Like many materials, certain colours in resin may change over time, due to the conditions they are exposed to. We do not consider this to be a flaw in the product, merely a characteristic of the product as it ages, giving your piece an individual patina. To prolong the original colours, keep away from sunlight.
Sterling silver, brass and gold are naturally soft metals and should be treated with special care to avoid damage. Avoid exposure to perfumes, oils and household chemicals. If tarnishing occurs wipe with a jewelry cleaning cloth or clean with a suitable cleaning agent.
To restore shine to plated jewelry use a clean soft cloth (such as a clean micro-fibre cloth). Plated jewelry can be cleaned with a damp cloth and mild detergent dissolved in hot water. Do not use caustic cleaning materials (such as “Brasso”) as this may damage the plating. Keep away from hard surfaces as bumps and scratches will cause wear to the plating. To extend the life of your plated jewelry we recommend keeping in a soft pouch or jewelry box, out of direct sunlight and heat.
Some of our pieces use fine metal chain. Despite the quality of this chain, like all chains of this nature, the very delicacy that holds its appeal requires that it be treated with care. It can break if pulled or knocked and can become entangled if not stored properly. Dinosaur Designs is not responsible for damage caused to pieces through general wear and tear.
Some of our resin bangles use a metal hinge. While this hinge is strong and durable, it can sprain if over extended and lose some of its tension. Dinosaur Designs is not responsible for damage caused to pieces through general wear and tear.
Our leather cord is a high quality leather. As with all natural leather products care should be taken, as it is possible that in some cases dye may transfer on to lighter coloured clothes when wearing. Dinosaur Designs is not responsible for damage caused to clothing in such instances and will not replace cord free of charge
