Care Guide

Michael Sousa Jewellery is handmade using the finest materials and with the highest level of craftsmanship.

At Michael Sousa we only use genuine leather and suede from the best Italian tanneries. Our exotic skins such as lizard and python are ethically sourced and Cites certified.


Jewellery should be carefully stored. Care should be taken to protect it from knocks, chemicals, perspiration extreme temperatures & sunlight.

Do not wear jewellery when in the swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna/steam room or while bathing or showering.

Chlorine, detergents, oils & perfumes can all cause tarnishing & damage.

Avoid direct contact with corrosive agents such as soap, cream, perspiration, water, sun, heat and chemical products to preserve the plating for longer.

Body lotions & fragrances all contain chemicals which may dull the finish of jewellery.

Remove jewellery when doing heavy duty tasks.

Keep jewellery stored in the leather pouch provided when not being worn.

Gently wipe jewellery with a clean soft cloth after each wear to remove dirt & oils (from skin).

Thoroughly dry jewellery after exposure to water: moisture can cause tarnishing & may weaken springs, clasps and chains.
