Frequently Asked Questions
How do I care for my AVID jewelry?
Set aside two bowls: one with warm water mixed with a small amount of Dawn dish soap, the other with water for rinsing. Soak your jewelry in the bowl with warm water for no more than 10 minutes, lightly rubbing your fingers over the jewelry. Do not rub hard or use any abrasives or chemicals. After rinsing with clear water, lightly pat dry with a soft cotton towel. You also can leave your jewelry out to dry overnight.
Do not expose your AVID products to harsh chemicals or environments, as they can alter the appearance of the product. These include but are not limited to – liquid silver polish – pool – hot tubs – salt water – spas – aerosols – cologne/perfume – makeup. Do not sleep in the jewelry.

What customizations are available with your jewelry?
We offer many options to customize your jewelry. The variety of gemstones available lets most customers match gemstones to their favorite team or sport.
It’s also possible to personalize your jewelry with engraving, available on select styles. (We limit engraving to two characters, such as jersey numbers or initials.)
Is it possible to use my own gemstones?
Are designs for other high schools or teams available?
Are your gemstones natural or synthetic?
AVID has designs that feature both natural and genuine gemstones. Natural gemstones are rare with no interference by humans. Genuine gemstones naturally occur in nature and are treated by human intervention to improve their appearance and enhance their color. Most colored gemstones fall into the genuine category. Synthetic gemstones are man made in a controlled environment.
