Jewelry care and warranty

French Kande is plated in sterling silver, gold and brass, all hand-finished by California artisans. Many feature color variations and blemishes that contribute to their one-of-a-kind aesthetic. Keep your Kande dry and free of oils and fragrances to maintain the finish's integrity. Should it patina over time, use a polishing cloth to revive its luster. Do not use cleaners or polishing compounds as it will remove the oxidation resulting in a brightened, shiny finish.
