Caring For Your Jewelry
CARING FOR YOUR JEWELRY
14 K Gold Filled
Our rings are carefully handmade to size with heavy-duty elastic string, 14 K gold-filled beads, or sterling silver. A good gold polishing cloth or jewelry cleaner will help to remove tarnishing.
Please note: sunscreen, hair products, nail polish, bleach, perfume chemicals, nail & hair salons with high-level sulfides in the air, or hot springs can permanently cause damage.
Gold filled jewelry does still contain a brass core.
Tips To Avoid The Green: Even if a person purchases an expensive piece of 14k/10k gold or silver jewelry, these prized metals can still pose potential skin discoloration problems. If you happen to be among those who are highly sensitive to the most commonly used metal alloys, like copper or nickel, you can still enjoy that ring without turning green. Here are a few tips to minimize the most common reactions with skin:
- Apply a coating of clear nail polish to the inside of the ring, creating a barrier between your skin and the metal. Repeat as necessary.
- Keep your skin dry. Don’t wear jewelry when swimming or bathing. Remove rings to wash hands and dry skin thoroughly before putting rings back on.
- Don’t wear lotion on ring finger(s).
- Don’t wear jewelry during workouts or other activities that will result in heavy sweating.
- Remove jewelry when using household cleansers containing bleach or wear waterproof gloves.
Tips To Avoid Unraveling:
We offer a 3 month guarantee and will replace your item if the string starts to unravel free of charge. Unfortunately with wear and tear the thread can come undone we offer a $5 restring fee + shipping you can purchase here.
To decrease the chances of fading out, here are easy ways on keeping the luster of your gold plated jewelry.
Do not spray on perfume or other sprays while wearing your gold-plated jewelry.
Please note: Substances like oil, nail polish, nail polish remover, chlorine, and perfume may react with metal/plated jewelry and cause it to tarnish. This is also true for sweat, so make sure you remove your gold plated jewelry when you exercise or doing anything requiring heavy work and when swimming.
If your jewelry needs more cleaning you may clean it with warm, soapy water. Soak it for a few minutes and you may clean it with a soft cloth. Stay away from jewelry cleaners and antibacterial soaps which may have certain components that will make your gold plated jewelry tarnish more quickly.
