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 with the jewelry.

What customizations are available with your jewelry?
AVID offer many options to customize your jewelry. The variety of gemstones available allows customers the ability to match colored gemstones with that of your favorite team or sport.
It’s also possible to personalize your jewelry with two character engraving, available on select styles.
However, logos and/or mascots of any school, team, or business are protected by the laws of intellectual property. AVID will not design any jewelry pieces without consent from these institutions.
Is it possible to use my own gemstones?
What level of quality and value do I get for the advertised price?
AVID uses precious metals plated with rhodium (a member of the platinum family) to avoid tarnishing while maintaining the luster of your jewelry for years to come. All gemstones are natural, genuine, and vibrant.
The only way to appreciate the quality is to physically see and hold each piece for yourself. Screen pixels and products descriptions simply don’t tell the story.
AVID is not the kind of jewelry you see in every store, on every rack, in every stadium, on every fan. It was never intended to be average. With that comes a level of expectation of value and quality from our customers. Bring it on!
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.
