Facts About the Sterling Silver Collection
The jewelry is made of .925 sterling silver as a base, and all pieces have a surface treatment. These surface treatments will fade over time because of contact with clothes, hard surfaces, sweat, perfume, hairspray, air pollution and others.
- The black Rhodium layer fades with everyday or very frequent wear.
- The gold plating and rose gold plating is 2-3 layers of 18-carat gold that gradually wears off, giving the appearance that it has faded.
Everyday or very frequent wear, may speed up this process, especially on items like rings and bracelets, which have more frequent contact with surface
- Avoid direct contact with water and chemical products e.g. soap, perfume, abrasive products.
- Do not wear jewelry when in the swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna/steam room or while bathing or showering.
- Remove jewelry when doing household tasks. Chlorine, detergents, oils & perfumes can all cause tarnishing and damage. Avoid impact with hard surfaces as much as possible.
- Make-up, perfume & hairspray all contain chemicals, which may dull the finish of your jewelry.
- Gently wipe jewelry clean with a soft cloth after each wear to remove make up and oils (from skin). Coil chains gently to prevent damage in storage. Don’t yank or pull chains.
