Each piece of jewelry is handmade and, therefore, delicate. Please use appropriate care to enjoy your piece for a long time. Taking your jewelry off and storing it while you sleep and shower is always recommended to increase the longevity of your pieces, as it reduces exposure to air and natural skin oils.
Gold fill is made when a layer of gold is fused to a core of base metal. The gold in gold fill is 50 to 100,000 times thicker than gold plating. You can use a polishing cloth on gold fill, but it’s best used gently and sparingly. All of our gold fill is sourced directly in the United States and is 100% nickel free. Gold-fill is your best option after solid gold for quality and durability, containing a substantial layer of 14k gold. It will not flake off or turn your skin green and offers a great option for people with sensitive skin. Gold-filled jewelry can stay beautiful for a lifetime, especially with a little care.
Sterling silver is a bright and beautiful precious metal with a long life span. The more you love and wear your sterling silver the more bright and shiny it stays. Tarnish can occur when sterling silver comes in contact with the oxygen in the air. If you are not wearing your sterling silver pieces every day, it is best to store in a resealable plastic bag or airtight container. If you do see some tarnishing, a polishing cloth can brighten it right up. All of our sterling silver is sourced directly in the United States and nickel free. It offers a great option for people with sensitive skin.
Brass may darken with wear, depending on body chemistry. If you don't like the dark patina, try to avoid getting your brass jewelry wet. A natural way to clean your brass is to mix lemon juice and baking soda into a paste, rub onto surface with a cloth, then gently rinse off and buff dry to a shine. All of our brass is sourced directly in the United Stated and nickel free.
