We only use precious metals, 925 and 830 silver. Our plating is very durable, with 18k gold. However, frequent use can cause the gilding (plating) to be worn of. All plated silver jewelry can be both plated and oxidized anew. When your jewelry is used and stored properly, the gold color will last for a long time. All items are treated with anti-tarnish treatment. Still, silver might oxidize over time. To avoid this as much as possible, follow the product care instructions. Silver polish can also be bought at any goldsmith. Gold plated jewelry will fade over time and become less gold colored. This is not considered a defect, but just a sign of normal wear and tear. In order to keep your jewelry looking shiny and new for years to come, it is important to follow some easy steps. Avoid direct contact with water and chemical products such as soap and perfume. Make-up, perfume and hairspray may dull the finish of your jewelry and cause discolour. Stones might as well get effected by damp conditions. Remove your jewelry when doing your household and do not wear your jewelry when in the swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna/steam room or while bathing or showering. Keep your jewellery away from all sources of heat. When you are not wearing your jewelry, we advice you to store it in an airtight bag in order to keep its surface shiny. Some of our jewelry are coloured with black rhodium. Rhodium belongs to the platina family and is a very costly metal. It is durable, and when your jewelry is used and stored properly, the color will last for a long time. For high polished surfaces, scratches may appear. Scratches and small dents are not considered a defect, but just a sign of normal usage. We advise you to store each piece separate so they don’t scratch into one another. Scratches will also fade over time and be less visible. Do not bend and pull chains, necklaces, bracelets or rings. Do not use chemicals, oils, perfume or spray on you jewelry. Remove your rings when washing your hands. Do not use your jewelry in shower, bath, pool, sauna etc. Do not use your jewelry when working out. Remove your jewelry when you are sleeping.
