Taking proper care of jewelry
Galacta Jewelry (the only one in industry) gives you two year guarantee for your jewelry. Guarantee covers possible discoloration and rotting of milk inside jewelry, or yellowing of resin. We create a duplicate for every order that we keep for the reference point and to be able to check quality and preservation of the jewelry constantly during the period covered by Guarantee.
Also, if metal parts detach, we will reattach them at no additional cost.
Note that Guarantee covers only remake or fix, not the refund.
However, some discoloration of milk beads is normal and expected, but it should be very subtle from white to yellow-creamy hue or a little more transparent, as milk is an organic, living structure.
Avoid wearing your Galacta Jewelry in showers, mineral baths, spas and swimming pools, as the salt water, chlorine and heat may affect the discolor your breastmilk.

Do not store your Galacta Jewelry next to heating vents, window sills or in a car. The heat will cause your breastmilk to discolor. The less air and light your silver is exposed to when you aren’t wearing it, the less tarnish will occur, making it easier to have shiny jewelry for years to come.
Your Sterling silver pieces should be cleaned with a special Sterling silver cloth. This will remove any tarnish and dullness and keep your Sterling silver Jewelry looking like new.
Never use tissues or paper towels for cleaning silver. These products will scratch the surface of the Jewelry.
Prior to storing, make sure your Galacta Jewelry is dry, as moisture speeds the tarnishing process so it’s important to make sure your Sterling silver Jewelry is dry before putting it away.
Ideally, store your Galacta Jewelry in a soft lined box or pouch. Try to keep pieces apart, so that they don’t rub together or tangle up.
