Jewelry Care

Here are some general guidelines to help care for your jewelry. 

 

Remove your jewelry prior to exposure to water.

 

Excessive pulling may result in damage or breakage.

 

Avoid contact with soaps, perfumes, lotions, hairspray and chemicals while wearing jewelry.

 

Fashion jewelry may tarnish over time. Many of our chain and findings are lead, nickel and cadmium free! Please see individual products for metal type used and product specifics.

 

Many of our products are made with Surgical Stainless Steel chain and/or findings. Surgical Stainless Steel will never tarnish, meets the Mayo Clinic recommendations and the EU Nickel Directive, considered hypo-allergenic and is safe for people with nickel allergies.

 

.925 Sterling Silver does contain nickel and is not recommended for people with nickel allergies. Sterling Silver will tarnish and discolor if not properly stored and cared for. Sterling Silver jewelry is easy to care for, just keep an Anti-tarnish tab or bag in a closed container when stored. These tabs absorb and neutralize the chemicals that cause tarnish.

 

Chain and findings described as "Plated" such as Gold Plated or Silver Plated are made with a layer of Gold or Silver over the top of a base metal. This combines the strength and durability of a hard metal with the visual appeal of a more precious metal like Gold or Silver. Plated means plated in real Gold or real Silver.
