What Happens on Our End to Protect You
When a jeweler works to handcraft the ready to wear and made to order jewelry items for you, we use quality materials and take our time to ensure beautiful results our customers are proud to wear. During the COVID-19 pandemic, our jewelers are taking precautions to avoid exposure and keep themselves, their families, and our jewelry clients safe. When working with your jewelry items, we ensure our hands and work surfaces and tools are clean and sanitized. We individually package and seal each item before shipping. You can learn about the steps being taking by USPS, FedEx, UPS, and other delivery vendors on their individual websites. The added levels of sanitization and health and safety considerations used by our jewelry store team and the various shipping companies we rely on are helping to keep people safe, but this may mean some slight delays in our production and shipping processes, especially concerning overseas shipping.
What You Can do to Protect Yourself
Once you receive your jewelry items. We recommend taking the following steps:
- Remove your jewelry from all packaging
- Discard all packaging that was in contact with other people
- Place jewelry in a container with rubbing alcohol or jewelry cleaner to disinfect it before you wear it
- Wash your hands thoroughly
While most jewelry items are unlikely to be contaminated, taking these precautions will give you peace of mind and ensure your safety. Taking steps to sterilize new earrings can be especially important since placing and removing earrings is more likely to cause damage to the skin allowing germs access to enter your blood stream.
