I want to believe that my jewelry is special. Each piece is imagined, meticulously manufactured and finished in my workshop in Lisbon, Portugal. Over time, jewelry may begin to show signs of wear, but if you follow the simple steps below, your jewelry will remain stunning for a long time.

Jewelry is delicate at its core, which is why we encourage customers to take extra care in their daily use. Be careful not to damage or scratch the jewelry, remove it and store it if you plan to do heavier work or work that could damage the pieces, such as lifting weights, gardening, etc. All metals become dull or tarnished if they come into contact with chemicals, so it is best to remove jewelry when taking a shower, putting on perfume, applying cream or exercising. It is also recommended that you remove your jewelry at night to prevent it from getting scratched or tangled. I hope you find this information useful. Don't hesitate to talk to me if you have questions about any of these recommendations.


Over time, the metal becomes dull, but it can be cleaned easily and quickly, returning it to its original state. To clean your jewelry, add a few drops of washing up liquid to warm water and gently clean with a soft toothbrush. This will help remove any dirt that may be accumulated under precious stones or in cracks in the piece itself. Dry the parts carefully with a soft cloth.


Despite being durable, silver can be damaged. Be aware of when you use the pieces and where you store them so that they always maintain a polished and shiny finish. As with most precious metals, silver can become tarnished. It probably won't happen as much if the silver pieces are used regularly — using the pieces is part of your care, as incredible as it may seem. You can clean them with warm water and a special silver cloth.


Gold has a beautiful color that deserves the best care to always be impeccable. It does not stain or oxidize, but it may lose its natural shine. As with silver pieces, be careful how you use the pieces and where you store them — gold is by nature a little more delicate than silver, so it is more susceptible to marks. You can clean your gold pieces with warm water and wipe them with a soft, lint-free cloth. One of the services I offer is cleaning jewelry of this type. For more information, talk to me.

Gold Plaque

The gold plaqué, or plaqué, wears out over time, but there is always a way to ensure that it lasts as long as possible through the use, conservation and cleaning of pieces with gold plaqué. Always remove the pieces if you are going to put on perfume, apply cream, take a shower, swim or exercise. Store your pieces in a safe place when you are not using them. Gold-plated pieces can be cleaned with warm water and a silver cleaning pad. However, be careful as this cleaning can wear away the gold layer over time.
