Crown Care Instructions

Aluminum
Fortunately, aluminum doesn’t tarnish, so for the most part, your crowns are maintenance free!  Over time you may notice that the crowns look a little dull, and this happens just from the accumulation of oils from your hands, dust, etc… And as unconventional as it may seem, rubbing alcohol does a great job of cleaning the crowns, and won’t hurt engravings or any materials on your crown

 

Argentium Silver
Argentium Silver® is a special blend of fine silver that contains a 3% blend of the element germanium.   This allows the silver to be highly tarnish resistant, naturally.   You silver crowns are practically maintenance free! From time to time, you may notice some finger-prints or smudges.  Enclosed is a polishing cloth that you may use to help keep you crowns look as shiny and new as when you wore them on your wedding day. 

 

Beaded crowns
If the beading on your crown starts to look a little digny over time, it's probably due to an accumulation of dust. Use a soft, damp cloth to gently cleanse the crown. allow to air dry.

 

Brass
While brass is a metal that will tarnish quite easily if left on its own, your crowns will remain maintenance free for years to come. To protect their finish, I have sealed your crowns with a metal lacquer.  This sealant provides an invisible barrier against oils and air.  In a well protected place, these crowns should remain shiny for generations. 

Depending on how much the crowns are handled, how they’re stored, etc...You may start to notice a little but of tarnish to develop many years down the road.  If and when this happens, you may use any commercial brass cleaner to strip off the remaining lacquer and polish up the crowns.

GoldFilled
First of all, what is “gold filled”?  Gold filled refers to a base metal, usually brass, than has been heat/pressure bonded with gold—in this case 14K gold.  Gold filled pieces have 2x the amount of gold as do gold “plated” items.

Metal Leaf Crowns
The leaves used in the Olympus crowns, and other similar crowns, such as the Milos Crowns, are made from brass and/or copper.  And you have either chosen to have the leaves left in their natural finish, or you have opted to have a gold, silver, or copper finish applied.  In either case, I have sealed your crowns with a metal lacquer.  This sealant provides an invisible barrier against oils and air, and will protect your crowns from tarnish for generations.  

 

Stainless Steel
Stainless Steel is a fantastic material for crowns, as the inherent properties of stainless steel ensure that your crowns will remain beautiful for generations.  After handling the crowns, you may notice a few finger prints here and there—and while these spots will not tarnish, you may want to go ahead and buff the crowns before storing them long-term just to make sure they look as beautiful as possible.  The enclosed polishing cloth will do the trick. 

 

Textile crowns
Should the fabric become soiled, spot clean with warm water and a gentle detergent. allow to air dry.
