Gorgeous gorgeous girls take care of their jewelry. Properly storing, cleaning and wearing your jewelry is crucial to ensuring the longevity of your pieces. By understanding the different metal makeups you can confidently wear your favorites time and time again.
GOLD AND SILVER PLATED
Plated jewelry is made of a thin layer of gold or silver electroplated over brass. We choose materials with the thickest plating wherever possible.
HOW TO CARE: We do not recommend wearing your gold or silver plated jewelry in water. Avoid contact with lotions, perfumes, oils, and sweat. These chemicals can dull your pieces and reduce their shine. Store in a cool, dry and covered space.
Gold vermeil jewelry is made of a thick layer of gold (2.5 microns) electroplated over sterling (.925) silver.
HOW TO CARE: When wearing vermeil it is best to avoid contact with water, lotions, perfumes, oils, and sweat. We recommend your jewelry be the last thing you put on when heading out. After removing your jewelry, run a clean dry cloth over each piece to remove the day. Do not use polish or soap on gold vermeil jewelry, as these chemicals can easily strip the gold. Store in a cool, dry and covered space.
Sterling silver jewelry is made of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper. We dip our sterling jewelry in rhodium, a highly durable precious metal, which gives it extra shine and longevity.
HOW TO CARE: These pieces still need to be cared for with love to avoid oxidation and tarnishing. Do not wear your sterling silver jewelry in water. Avoid contact with lotions, perfumes, oils, and sweat. Polish your sterling silver pieces with a soft cloth as needed. Store in a cool, dry and covered space.
Gold fill is second only to solid gold in terms of quality and is the best affordable option when it comes to durability and longevity.Our gold filled jewelry is created with an outer layer of entirely 14k gold that is pressure-bonded to the brass base metal and contains at least 5% gold by weight.
HOW TO CARE: Gold filled jewelry often requires very low maintenance. Gold fill pieces are more durable than plating or vermeil but will still need some TLC over time. You can clean your items with a wet cloth, gentle toothbrush, and ordinary soap. Though our gold filled pieces are durable, we still do not recommend them coming in direct contact with lotions, oils, perfumes, or ocean/pool water. This can dull your pieces and reduce their shine.
14K SOLID GOLD
Solid gold pieces are made of 14 karat gold.
HOW TO CARE: Solid gold pieces are ideal for piercing, as they can help avoid infection and irritation, and won't degrade over time even in water. Solid gold is a safe bet if you have allergies or sensitivities to other metals.Solid gold is durable and tarnish-resistant. Even so, it's still a good idea to treat your solid gold jewelry with care.
