Material & Care

Here is a guide on the different types of jewellery and how to take care of it. 

Gold Vermeil

Gold Vermeil jewellery is known for its high quality and long lasting colour. It is tarnish resistant, durable, and hypoallergenic for those that have sensitive skin. Gold Vermeil uses a thicker type of gold plating that is more than 2.5 microns and is at least 10k gold or higher. This means that it has a minimum of 41.7% gold. It has sterling silver (S925) as its base material. 

To keep your piece looking its best, gently clean with a damp soft cotton cloth after every wear. Please do not use jewellery cleaner or polishing cloths or pads.

Gold-plated

Gold-Plated jewellery only contains 0.03-0.05% solid gold, and this thin gold layer is added onto the base metal via electroplating - making it much more affordable. The base metal is usually made of non-gold metals such as brass or copper, which may irritate sensitive skin.

Care should be taken when wearing or cleaning gold-plated jewellery as plating can wear off overtime with heavy use. To keep your piece looking its best, gently clean with a damp soft cotton cloth after every wear. Please do not use jewellery cleaner or polishing cloths or pads on plated pieces.

Sterling Silver (S925)

Sterling Silver jewellery is made from recycled 925 sterling silver. It can tarnish but can be easily removed with polishers. This material is durable and hypoallergenic for those that have sensitive skin.

To keep your piece looking its best, gently clean with a damp soft cotton cloth after every wear. Please do not use jewellery cleaner or polishing cloths or pads.

Stainless Steel

Stainless Steel jewellery is made of a steel alloy that contains chromium. This hard metal resists scratches and corrosion, and will not oxidize. It is tarnish and rust resistant, durable, and hypoallergenic for those that have sensitive skin. 

Although stainless steel jewellery doesn’t tarnish or corrode and doesn’t require special care, it can scratch. Store your pieces in a way that minimizes any contact with other items that can damage. To keep your piece looking its best, gently clean with mild liquid soap, warm water, and a soft cotton cloth after every wear. Please do not use jewellery cleaner or polishing cloths or pads.

General Jewellery Care

Handle your jewellery with care and refrain from rough use. Limit contact with strong chemicals (lotions, perfumes, hairsprays), sulfur, sweat and perspiration, and chlorine. Protect jewellery from sharp blows, extreme temperatures, sunlight and rough or hard surfaces. Store jewellery separately in an airtight bag or container. Ensure you also remove your jewellery before going to sleep to avoid damage.
