4.2 How should I take care of my jewelry?
Here are some helpful tips to keep your jewelry looking its very best!
To keep your jewelry in the best condition possible, we recommend taking it off when showering, sleeping, swimming, gardening, working out, and playing with babies. Be advised that sunscreen and other skin products may discolor jewelry.
Silver tarnishes quickly when it comes into contact with oxygen or sulfur. The good news is that wearing your jewelry often allows the natural oils in your skin to help prevent tarnish.
When storing your silver jewelry, use an airtight plastic bag. If you can, put in a piece of chalk or a silica gel pack in the bag, too.
The best way to clean tarnished silver is with a jewelry polishing cloth.
You can use a jewelry polishing cloth to give your gold some extra shine and to remove any tarnish. Another option is to mix a small amount of mild dish detergent with warm water in a bowl. Put the jewelry into the bowl and let sit for a few minutes. Use a soft toothbrush (like a baby tooth brush) to gently scrub the jewelry. Remove jewelry from soapy water, rinse, and dry thoroughly with a soft polishing cloth.
Brass may darken with wear, depending on body chemistry. Avoid getting your brass jewelry wet to prevent premature tarnishing. A commercial brass cleaner, like “JAX” or “Brasso”, will help restore your piece to its original shine.
There is little that can be done to prevent fashion jewelry from tarnishing over time. However, the best tip is to avoid getting your fashion jewelry wet, as this will help prevent premature tarnishing. You can also store the jewelry in an airtight plastic bag.

Please give us a call if you don’t see what you’re looking for listed on our website. Our store does get very busy and we may need to return your call at a later time, but we’ll do our best to get you what you’re looking for!
5.2 I have two discount codes. Can I use both?
Only one discount code can be used per transaction. Some discounts may only be applicable in-store or online. Please reach out to the Frances team if you have any questions.
5.3 Can I use a discount code on a gift card purchase?
