Our Lucky Bracelets and Necklaces are braided by hand with 18k gold diamond cut chain and colour-safe silk.

Each piece may have natural variations in length and appearance due to the artisan nature of our products.

We do not recommend showering or swimming with pieces of this nature; however, if you choose to do so, we recommend rinsing your jewellery with fresh water and patting it dry with a towel.

Please be aware the neon silk used for the Neon Lucky Bracelet with Strength charm can fade if exposed to the sun for a prolonged period of time.

Due to the delicate nature of these pieces, they will become unique to the wearer over time. We offer a refurbishment service to clients who wish to have their jewellery restored to its original condition. If you wish to have your piece refurbished or repaired, please contact our Customer Service team at customerservice@carolinabucci.com. Please note that these pieces are repaired by hand so this process may take up to 6 weeks.

18k Gold

We recommend using gold cleaning liquid at home to keep your pieces in their original condition. Where possible, it is best to have your pieces professionally cleaned by your local jeweller.

Pavé

Clean your pavé pieces with warm water, a mild detergent and a soft brush or cloth.

Pearls

Pearls pieces should be cleaned with a soft, dry cloth.
