Please treat your Abilu Creations with care, each design is a miniature work of art and therefore needs to be cared for and looked after properly.
Some of the vintage pendants and charms are made with brass and get better with age giving a more rustic look however if you prefer your jewels to shine and sparkle just buff them up with some Brasso. This should only be used on the brass charms, some of the vintage silver plated charms with a base metal of brass can be polished with silver polish however in time this would wear away the plating. If unsure you can just take a soft cleaning cloth and just give your charms a buff which will also work wonders and remove any blackened marks.
The gold and silver plated pieces in particular will gradually wear and tarnish if worn everyday or regularly. Also care needs to be taken when spraying perfume or hairspray, always do this before you put them on and allow to dry completely, this is the same for greasy or perfumed creams including sun creams as the chemicals in them will excel the tarnishing process and will wear away the plating or coat the product in a sticky residue.
Hot weather and sweat can also accelerate the tarnishing process and never wear them in the pool, shower, sea or when you are doing any physical work. Remove when washing your hands and do not sleep in your jewellery. After wearing, carefully wipe your jewellery with a soft cotton or lint-free cloth; this will remove unwanted chemicals/material from the surface. Try to avoid leaving your jewels in direct sunlight where they may fade and loose there charm, I always recommend storing in the fabric pouch provided to help keep them looking gorgeous.
The standard Chains I use are durable but not indestructible and are designed to break at force otherwise they would cause heath & safety risks. However if you have a problem with one of your chains and the spring in the clasp goes, just get in touch with your order details and we will send out a replacement. It does happen from time to time and is hard to maintain.

Some of the designs I can make in quantity but some are unique one of pieces especially as I love incorporating vintage pieces where possible. So when some items go out of stock they will no longer be available, however I am always on the lookout for more gorgeous delights to replace them with. Vintage charms may be marked or discoloured which we feel makes them more alluring and desirable but if your not happy just get in touch as we are always happy to help.
If the charm is described as "vintage" it is a genuine vintage product with most dating from the 1960s and 1970s. If the charm is described as "vintage style" it is a modern item with a vintage/retro look.
