Jewellery Care

Our Materials

We only work with high-quality, enduring materials, from precious metals to chains. Our pieces are made for everyday wear, forever.
We also have a few tips and tricks you can use to keep your piece looking brand new.

Sterling silver

925 Sterling Silver is an alloy made of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper. We plate our silver jewellery in rhodium, which gives it extra shine and durability. Rhodium is one of the costliest precious metals due to its rarity.

Care

  • H2O sensitive. Avoid water when wearing your piece, because over time the sterling silver will oxidize.
  • However, the oils in your skin help keep sterling silver from oxidizing faster. So, wear often, and keep your piece in a velvet pouch or box to keep oxygen at bay.

Gold Vermeil

Gold Vermeil, not to be confused with regular gold plating, gold vermeil is a much thicker layer of gold which gives the pieces their long-lasting color. We use 18k gold that is a minimum of 2.5 microns thick layered over sterling silver.

Care

  • Sweat and water, no thank you. Before exercising or showering, remove your vermeil jewelry. Clean your piece by buffing gently with a dry cloth and store it in a pouch.

 

GOLD VERMEIL

Gold vermeil is a thick coating of 18ct gold over sterling silver. Although gold vermeil can last when properly cared for, it may become dirty and fade slightly with wear. However, you wont believe how long your gold will last if you follow our simple golden rules.  

  • Store your jewellery away from direct sunlight when its not being worn.

  • Remove your gold vermeil jewellery when showering, exercising and swimming (scratches and scuffs can scratch away the gold)

  • Do not wear your jewellery overnight

  • Potions and lotions will corrode the gold coating, so always put Jewellery on after applying perfume

  • Wear rubber gloves when cleaning as bleach and harsh chemicals can thin the gold overlay
