gold plated - we do not recommend swimming, showering, etc. with this necklace
Our jewelry is available in a wide variety of metals from solid 14k gold to gold plated brass. This allows us to offer similar styles at several price points.
18k gold vermeil pieces are sterling silver that have been plated with 18k gold. These pieces are great for individuals with allergies to normal plated jewelry items. Vermeil jewelry is not solid gold and should be treated with extra care. Never use jewelry cleaner on vermeil pieces. Vermeil jewelry will wear differently with each individual.
Sterling silver is a mixture of pure silver with copper or nickel, also known as the alloys. To clean sterling silver pieces, use a cleaning agent with a sulfur base to remove accumulated tarnish.
Solid 14k gold pieces are 14 parts pure gold with 10 parts alloy. 14k gold jewelry are completely solid throughout the entire piece. These pieces are more durable than vermeil or sterling silver.
Extra Tips For Taking Care Of All Pieces:
- Always remove your jewelry before swimming, bathing, doing household chores, or using abrasive cleaners.
- if your jewelry requires cleaning, use a mild soap, water, and a soft brush such as a toothbrush. Rinse with clean water and pat dry with a soft cloth.
- Avoid direct contact with beauty products such as perfume, hairspray, or deodorant while wearing your jewelry.
- Place individual pieces of jewelry in a plastic bag and squeeze as much air out as possible before closing. This prevents tarnishing and scratching.
