Our pieces are created by hand, with love. We work with high-quality, lasting materials, selected for their aesthetic quality. These pieces can include an array of semi-precious stones, ethically sourced of course, often set in Sterling Silver or Gold Vermeil. Our pieces are made to be worn with love, and a little bit of extra care. We have some tips and tricks below that you can follow to keep your pieces looking brand new, and ohh so sparkly!
10kt & 14kt Gold:
- Solid gold is a precious metal that will not oxidize or discolor since it is the least reactive metal, the 10 - 14kt alloy gives the pieces their beautiful, subtle finish.
- To clean your gold piece, we suggest filling a bowl with warm water and a couple of drops of dish soap. Immerse your piece in the solution and let them soak for 15 minutes. After soaking, run your piece under warm water to remove any residue and pat dry. If you want to bring the shine back into your piece, you can always take a polishing cloth and gently rub against the material.
- Vermeil is a material with a sterling silver base plated with layers of 14k gold. Our gold has a 2.5mm micron thickness, meaning it has quite a hefty layer that covers the silver.
- We suggest avoiding getting your piece wet, or having them come into contact with chemicals. This means you should take your piece off before showering, swimming, exercising, etc., you get the idea?! This helps to keep the plating in looking like new, and avoiding having to clean your piece which over time can strip the gold finish.
- You can always clean your piece by buffing it gently with a dry cloth, and storing it for safe keeping in soft pouch.
- We work with 925 Sterling Silver, which is an alloy composed of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper. Sterling Silver is quite soft, thus it is often alloyed with cooper to increase its hardness and strength.
- Sterling silver requires minimal care. It may darken over time but you can easily polish your pieces back to new.
- You can use a soft jewellers polishing cloth on your jewelry to remove the tarnish and achieve that shiny, mirror finish. You can also create a paste by mixing baking soda and warm water. Rub this mixture over your pieces, then rinse off with warm water and pat dry.
