Q: What should I do to care for a piece that I purchase from Jewels of the Vineyard?
A: Jewels of the Vineyard bracelets are all leather products. Slight scratches and scuffs can be removed with paste shoe polish to match the color of the leather. I use a leather preservative to keep the bracelets soft and protected. Silver- and gold-plated beads can be polished using a polishing cloth or Q-tip® and polish. Gently rub off with a soft cloth. As with all leather products, leather bracelets do not like to get wet with water or moisture. If the bracelet does get wet, wipe off immediately to prevent damaging the seal on the leather and/or creating rust in the beads.
