Materials & Care

The quality and durability of our jewellery is extremely important to us. All pieces are
made with either 14k gold filled or .925 sterling silver which can last you a lifetime.
These materials are tarnish free and won’t lose their colour after an accidental swim or
shower. There are, however, some instructions for lifetime enjoyment of your jewellery.

Sterling silver
Sterling silver consists of 92,5% pure silver and 7,5% usually copper which adds strength
to the metal while still preserving the appearance of pure silver.

Sterling silver can tarnish when exposed to certain atmospheres or chemicals. The good
thing is that sterling silver jewellery can easily be polished or put in a soda bath to
remove tarnish and make it good as new!

When you’re not wearing your sterling silver jewellery, it is best to store it in a dry
environment, preferably in a closed container.

14k gold filled
Gold filled is an industry standard that legally requires at least 5% of pure gold by weight.
It’s a strictly regulated process that involves pressure bonding multiple layers of
solid 14k gold with extreme heat over a core of high quality brass resulting in a durable,
quality, real gold product.

After solid gold, gold filled is definitely your best and most affordable choice for durable
gold jewellery, especially if you have sensitive skin. With a little care you can keep your
gold filled jewellery beautiful for a lifetime. It won’t make your skin turn green, it won’t
flake, and it won’t rust.

Caring for your gold filled jewellery is relatively easy (I always call it jewellery for lazy
people). It’s possible to shower with your gold filled jewellery if you use mild soaps.
There are some (heavy) chemicals that can negatively impact the look of your gold
jewellery, such as chlorine, perfume, and salt (from the ocean). Personally, I never take
it off, even when swimming in the pool or sea, but it is a good idea to give it a mild rinse
with a little soap afterwards.

When you’re not wearing your gold filled jewellery, it is best to store it in a dry
environment, preferably in a closed container.

5 micron vermeil gold plated
Gold vermeil is .925 sterling silver that’s gold plated. The number of micron indicates how
thick the layer of gold is. A gold plated piece can only be called vermeil if the thickness of
the layer of gold is at least 2.5 micron. The thickest layer possible is 5 micron which, if it’s
cared for properly, makes it just as durable as the gold filled pieces.
