Each piece is handcrafted from exquisite, natural materials, and can, therefore, be quite fragile. Please take extra care when handling your jewellery.
The pieces are made from naturally-occurring elements, so colour and shape variations may occur over time.
For any doubts, please contact Struktura.
The silver structure will naturally oxidise with time. Occasionally wiping the silver with a soft cloth will slow this process.
To prevent further tarnishing, avoid contact with perfume, household cleaning products and water.
Only use specialized silver-polishing products to clean the silver. Apply to a cotton bud, always taking care not to apply the polish to other materials. The residue of the polish can stain the leather or your clothes.
Use a soft damp cloth to remove it thoroughly.
Do not use polishing products designed for metals other than silver.
Struktura uses leather of the highest quality in all its products.
Any marks, color variations or textures should be considered natural features, rather than imperfections.
Please handle the leather with clean, dry hands to avoid stains and discoloration. Water, makeup and greasy lotions may leave traces on the leather.
Colored leather can leave a stain on light surfaces in the first few wears.
The leather on any Struktura product is best cleaned using a soft, clean cloth or leather cleaning sponge. Should you spot a scratch, rub it gently with a dry cloth before using any products.
Avoid using self-shining leather cleaners as these will mar with the original lustre of the leather. If in doubt or working with coloured leather, ask a specialist or contact Struktura directly.
Do not put leather products in the washing machine.
