Here is a closer look at how best to take care of the individual materials and components used in our Jewellery to help you prolong their duration.
14k gold is 58.3% gold and 41.7% alloy. The stamp is 14k or sometimes 585. 14k gold is a great choice if you're looking for a lifetime piece you can wear everyday and everywhere - yes, even in the shower!
925 Sterling silver is 92.5% pure silver, thats why its called 925 sterling silver, the rest is 7.5% of other metals, usually copper. We plate our pieces in 18k yellow gold, 18k rose gold and rhodium. This process is called vermeil. We may also leave it as is for its natural silver colour. We recommend that you keep your pieces away from water, sweat and cosmetics, and keep them in a jewellery box so their beauty will last much longer. You can polish 925 sterling silver colour only, to keep for longer. The vermeil coating will eventually tarnish, so do keep that in mind.
Brass is the most commonly used base metal used by luxury fashion houses to produce their costume jewellery due to its malleable characteristics, it can easily be shaped into plenty of designs. We plate our pieces in 18k yellow gold, 18k rose gold and rhodium. Plated brass pieces will eventually tarnish over time. However, if you keep the pieces away from water, sweat and cosmetics, and keep them in a jewellery box, their beauty will be prolonged.
Cubic zirconia is one of the highest quality replica of natural diamonds. It is the affordable diamond. If your piece has some cubic on it, we recommend not wearing them in the shower or whilst washing your hands as this could dislodge the cubic.
Freshwater pearls are created in mussels or oysters in rivers, lakes or ponds and tend to be more irregular in shape and more varied in colour than acrylic pearls. If your piece has a pearl, we don't recommend wearing them in the showers or whilst washing your hands as this could dislodge the pearl.
