At Kate Maller Jewelry we craft pieces of fine jewelry that are meant to last a lifetime. Our use of high quality materials, and a superb level of craftsmanship allow us to create pieces of wearable art that can be passed down as heirlooms.
Every piece of Kate Maller jewelry is made by hand and finished with a unique texture and appearance that deserves to be cared for. In the words of my mom, "Jewelry should be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off!" We recommend removing your KMJ pieces before swimming, bathing, or strenuous physical activity.
Use warm water and a mild soap to clean your jewelry. A soft-bristled toothbrush can be used to gently clean and scrub each piece. Pay special attention to removing dirt and debris from around and under gemstones. Avoid the use of harsh cleaners and chemicals. We do not recommend the use of jewelry cloths or ultrasonic cleaners. Most of our jewelry has a patina (blackening treatment) applied to the silver; depending on the individual piece and the degree of wear, the silver can lighten over time, especially rings. If at any point you would like your piece re-patinaed, please contact us directly.
