Please refer to product cleaning instructions as related to material composition in our F.A.Q section.  Use of inappropriate cleaning substances will void the warranty.

Money clips are not hinged and therefore will not withstand excessive bending.  
Gist Silversmiths will NOT warranty products due to rust or corrosion. Bits and spurs WILL rust if not properly cared for and it is the consumer’s responsibility to store them clean and dry.
