10kt/14kt Solid Gold
- 10kt and 14kt gold is a solid metal but still delicate in nature. While this materal can last a lifetime, gold does require gentle care and occasional polishing. We do not recommend any chemical solutions when cleaning your jewelry.
Vermeil is a material with a sterling silver base plated with layers of 14kt gold. Your vermeil pieces are best for occasional wear in order to keep the plating looking new. To avoid the wearing of your plating, remove when in contact with water, cleaning solutions, lotions and perfumes.
Sterling silver is a solid metal and thus requires minimal care. It may darken over time but you can easily polish your pieces back to new. Use a soft cloth on your jewelry to achieve that mirror finish.
All of our diamonds are ethically sourced. Diamonds are an incredibly hard material so please take care, as they can scratch other stones or metals.
- Please refer to our blog post on brass based jewelry here.
Caring for your jewelry begins with being mindful of how to wear your pieces and when to take them off. When you are not wearing your jewelry, store your pieces in an airtight bag to keep them from exposure to outside elements.
We are always here to consult with you on any questions you have regarding the care of your jewelry. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org
