Materials and Care
Gold filled jewelry is the latest introduction to the jewelry market. Since gold prices have gone up, the cost of a solid gold jewelry can be very costly. So gold filled is an economical alternative, while giving little up in quality. If you care for it properly it will last you long.
Sterling Silver is an alloy made of 92.5% pure Silver and 7.5% Copper. We plate our Silver jewelry in rhodium, which gives it extra shine and durability. Rhodium is one of the costliest precious metals due to its rarity.
Vermeil is a thick layer of gold which gives the pieces their long lasting color. For a piece to be considered vermeil, the gold must be a minimum of 10k and 1.5 microns. We use 18k gold layered on sterling silver.
Linen is a textile made from the fibers of the flax plant. Linen is laborious to manufacture, but the fiber is very strong, absorbent, and dries faster than cotton. Garments made of linen are valued for their exceptional coolness and freshness in hot and humid weather. However, the production of linen requires less wate4r and fares better in terms of toxicity.
Gold filled, vermeil and silver jewelry are taken care of in the same way as other precious jewelry. Here are some tips to preserve your pieces:
1) Clean it regularly using a little bit of warm water or a silver cleaning cloth (if you don't have it we sell it for $6). Many chemicals marketed for cleaning jewelry may be abrasive or corrosive and can cause some damage or color alteration.
2) Always store your jewelry in a closed box after using. Humidity may affect the way your jewelry looks.
3) Our jewelry is made from high quality materials and a thick plating but for long term duration we always recommend to remove it prior to showering or applying lotions and perfumes.
Under normal wearing conditions, and proper care, our jewelry can last for a lifetime. But heavy wear and rough conditions will impact how your jewelry looks. This is true no matter what your jewelry is made of. You should try to avoid for every type of gold jewelry, salt water, chlorine and all heavy detergents.
You can use a machine wash on cold gentle cycle or preferably you can hand wash. Air dry and remember to lay the piece flat.
