Most of our items are made of plated base metals. Gold-plated, silver-plated, rose-gold plated and 14k gold dipped items. If you have metal sensitivities, email us and we will help you find something or create something that will work for you!
What are plated metals?
Plated materials mean that the item is made from a base-metal - brass or silver - with a thin layer of the color on top, either gold, silver, or rose gold. Plated materials are much more cost effective than 14k gold, pure gold, etc. However, since they have just a thin layer of the color over another metal, the top layer (the color you see) can and will fade overtime.
We recommend storing your jewelry in a jewelry box or other enclosed storage container. Try to avoid any contact with moisture, water, perfumes, aerosol sprays, and the like. Wipe them down after each wear. Plated metals will "turn" over time, so it's especially important to care for them! The "turning" process varies from person to person - much of it depends on what the item is exposed to and the natural oils on our skin. If there's a lot of moisture/oil, the item will turn much more quickly.
