Do you have any tips for keeping my VDH jewelry looking its best?

A little love goes a long way! When not wearing your jewelry, be sure to store it in a pouch or individual plastic baggies. This helps prevent scratching and damages. You should always remove your jewelry when applying scents, lotions and sprays - or even better, your jewelry should always be put on last before heading out the door. We want you to enjoy your VDH jewels for as long as possible. 

 

Do your products look like what I am seeing on online?

All of our jewelry is photographed to show as much detail as possible. Some products may appear larger or smaller than their actual size. We do our best to depict our items with the utmost accuracy. If you have questions about specific dimensions and they are not included in the product description on the website email customerservice@vanderhoutjewelry.com and we will answer your questions right away!
