Jewelry Care: The best way to keep your Pyrrha jewelry looking great is to wear it. However, when not in use you should store it in a dry location, preferably in a jewelry box or plastic zip lock bag to avoid oxidation.
Blueluxe offers the Seals Line from Pyrrha. The sterling silver, bronze and 14k gold Seals line express symbolic sentiment through the
casting of authentic 19th century wax seals.
The Seals line has been given a special antique finish. Do not use any silver cleaner creams or dips on these pieces. You should also not wear this line in a pool, hot tub or while applying perfume, to avoid any contact with chemicals. Normal soap or shampoo will not damage the jewelry.
