LOVE ME TENDER, LOVE ME SWEET
Please handle your Hello Joys with care! Being dropped, going swimming, being bent and being stored with sharp objects (eg. in the bottom of your handbag with your keys) are not activities that your earrings love to partake in. Unfortunately doing any or all of these activities may result in damage, or even worse, breakage. And that makes us all very, very sad.
Please keep your earrings stored on a flat surface (or even better, an earring holder), out of water, direct sunlight and excessive heat.
Hello Joys are painted and sealed with a protective coating to allow them to withstand the occasional scuff, bump and water contact. However the coating is not infallible. Leaving your earrings sitting in water, or repetitive rigid scratching at the coating will inevitably penetrate the membrane, leaving the painted layers vulnerable to further chips, scratches and peeling.
Tassels and fringing are made using genuine leather. Leather is porous and the oils and chemicals in perfume, makeup and sunscreen may affect it. So for this reason, it's best to put your earrings on after you've finished your beauty routine.
TARNISH RESISTANT JUMP RINGS
We use quality, tarnish resistant jump rings from the Evergleam range. Evergleam products are treated with a hard wearing, clear electrostatic finish which repels moisture and skin acids that cause oxidisation and tarnish, meaning the jump rings remain shiny for much longer than regular jump rings.
CLEANING & CARE
Should your earrings need a little freshen up, please use a soft, clean microfibre cloth to wipe them down.
For bent or curled leather, simply use a little water on your fingertips to dampen the leather (just damp, not soaking), then straighten and leave to dry on a flat surface overnight.
