THE GIVING KEYS
On a mission to help those affected by homelessness.
The Very First Key
This story begins with a New York hotel room key. Actress and singer-songwriter, Caitlin Crosby, started wearing the hotel key as a necklace while on tour and had the idea to start engraving old, used keys with inspirational words. Realizing that, in a way, we are all like these keys" unique, flawed, scarred, and sometimes discarded by others" she wanted these keys to have their purpose renewed over and over again.
Clean as often as needed using a polishing cloth on any metal parts to reduce tarnishing.
Keep in mind that due to the personal pH levels of an individual's skin, jewelry may tarnish more quickly for some than for others.
Store The Giving Keys in a pouch rather than leaving them fully exposed to the air.
Avoid excessive exposure to water and sunlight. We recommend removing your jewelry before washing dishes, showering, heading to the beach, etc.
Do not spray on perfume when wearing your fashion jewelry. If you have sprayed on perfume, wait for it to totally dry before putting on your jewelry.
Some people who are known to have acidic skin may cause metallic accessories to oxidize/darken. If one is acidic in body chemistry, please do not wear your fashion jewelry against bare skin or expose the pieces to sweat.
It is best to NOT immerse the fashion jewelry in chemically treated jewelry cleaner. To clean the jewelry from time to time, immerse the pieces in a mild detergent followed by rinsing with water and patting dry with a soft cloth.
If you live close to saltwater, know that this can also cause your jewelry to darken.
