Jewelry Care

Alexandra Barcelona's jewelry is all handmade with terra-cotta, clay or ceramic. It is important to understand these materials, once dried or baked, are fragile and need extra care.

Please remove your jewelry while exercising, bathing or swimming, and avoid contact with water, perfumes, lotions, makeup or hair products.

Do not use chemicals or cleaners on your jewelry. You may use a dry and soft cotton or small cloth to clean it.

Gold plated components may tarnish and darken over time from exposure to water and oils, but can be cleaned with a soft jewelry polishing cloth. Be sure to store your jewelry away from humidity to reduce tarnish.

Also please note that we are supplied with gold platted, nickel free components and parts to complete our terra-cotta creations, in order to avoid any allergic reactions. We understand the importance of nickel-free jewelry because of many people with skin sensitivity. However, skin reactions still may occur even if we try our best to get from our suppliers the best nickel-free parts and components. Alexandra Barcelona is not responsible for any rare allergy or skin reaction caused by our jewelry.

As commented above, Alexandra Barcelona's jewelry is fragile, so be careful when handling it, avoid dropping it or handling it roughly. We suggest storing your jewelry in a small box.

Please contact us at if you have any questions regarding your jewelry care. We will be happy to assist you! :)
