Care Tips

General Tips

To keep your Gypsy BK pieces at their best, please give them occasional breaks and store neatly when not in use. Avoid contact with moisture and liquid cosmetics; this includes lotion, sunscreen, and perfume. Pieces that are not solid gold should never be worn in the shower, the pool or the ocean. Also pack pieces carefully for travel - we recommend always storing them in your carry-on luggage.

While Gypsy BK is not responsible for the maintenance of your jewelry, we hope these tips will help keep all of your jewelry - including your Gypsy BK pieces - looking their best. Below are some additional details on caring for your jewelry.

For Vintage Collections

All GBK Vintage Collections are labeled "Vintage" and sold an on "as is" basis. This may include natural scratches; Gypsy BK is not responsible for the natural scratches that may form on your jewelry.

For Gold

While gold is tarnish resistant, it can get dirty or smudged. We recommend cleaning any gold jewelry with a mild detergent or ammonia solution. You can use a soft brush, but avoid using an abrasive material that may scratch the gold. Be sure to rinse and wipe clean. GBK offers Gold Vermeil, Gold Plated and Gold Filled pieces.

Please keep gold-lated enamel away perfumes, hand cremes, detergents, soap, and liquid and ultrasonic jewelry cleaners. To clean enamel jewelry, use a soft toothbrush or cloth with warm water. Rinse and wipe with a soft cloth to dry. Accidentally dropping enamel jewelry on a hard floor/surface may cause cracks or chips.

For Brass

Gypsy BK brass jewelry is plated in 14K to 24K yellow gold, 14K rose gold, or silver and rhodium. To ensure the life of brass jewelry, do not expose it to water. Please remove your jewelry while exercising, bathing, and swimming, and avoid contact with perfumes, lotions or hair products.

Gypsy BK recommends cleaning your plated jewelry using a very slightly damp, soft cloth. Make sure to fully dry the piece before wearing it. Do not use harsh chemicals, jewelry cleaners, or polishing cloths, as this will affect the finish. We suggest storing your brass jewelry in the pouch that we provide. We highly recommend following these instructions carefully.

For Charm Necklaces

It is normal for charm necklaces to experience slight wear as the various gently worn vintage charms come into contact with one another. Gypsy BK is not responsible for the natural scratches that will form on your jewelry.
