Jewelry Care

JEWELRY CARE-

All of our pieces are made with naturally occurring elements from mother earth. Other naturally occuring elements, like oxygen, light, and just plain dirt can tarnish your pieces. 
One way to prevent oxidization of silver is to wear it regularly. The buffing it gets from being against your skin will keep it from tarnishing. 
Storing your pieces in the airtight plastic bag we send them in is one way to keep out the elements that can cause your jewelry to tarnish. 
Be very careful with lotions, hair products, perfumes, etc., for they can also discolor stones and tarnish metals, sometimes permanently. It’s always best to put your jewelry on last to avoid any of these problems–we cannot stress this enough. 
Also, do yourself a favor and pick up a jewelry polishing cloth at your local drug store or in the jewelry department of a local department store. Polishing is the safest and most recommended way to clean jewelry. 
Do not wear plated items in a pool or jacuzzi, do not wear them constantly, don’t expose them to corrosive elements, and don’t expose them to perfume and hair products. These things will all cause the plating to come off. 

 

METAL DEFINITIONS-

 14k Gold Filled-This kind of jewelry can be either 10K, 12K, or 14K. 14k gold filled is jewelry that has a 14k gold coating over a base of other metals. Gold filled jewelry has more gold than gold plated would have and the part touching your skin is actual gold and will not rub off.

 

Gold Plated & Vermeil- The material involved in gold plating is usually brass, bronze or sterling silver with a 0.5-2.5 micron layer of gold around it. Pieces made in this manner will last for quite some time without the underlying metal tarnishing through. Pronounced ‘ver-may,’ this material consists of sterling silver plated with at least 2.5 microns of gold.

 

REPAIRS-

We use only the highest quality materials and craftsmanship so if treated well your new jewelry should last you a long time. However, if your jewelry is damaged, please Contact Us for repair. We will see if we can fix it.

Please be gentle with your jewelry, it is delicate and should be treated with care.

Thanks for your business, and we hope you love your jewelry!
